Top Gear America Returns This Spring With Three New Hosts

Dax Shepard, Rob Corddry, and Jethro Bovingdon are your on-camera entertainment.

Top Gear is a worldwide phenomenon. The original show is legendary, delivering motoring fun in its current form to the masses since 2002. The show’s popularity has spawned country-specific spinoffs such as Top Gear France, Top Gear Russia, and Top Gear Korea, to name a few. The U.S. has had not one, but two iterations of the popular show, and we’re about to get a third. MotorTrend Group and BBC Studios are partnering to revive the show with three new hosts that will air exclusively on the MotorTrend App, the company’s streaming service.  

While the show's car content matters, TGA will only be as good as the chemistry between the three hosts – Dax Shepard, Rob Corddry, and Jethro Bovingdon. Oh, and The Stig. Shepard is best known as Kristen Bell’s husband, though he has a stack of acting credits – CHiPs, Hit and Run, Netflix’s The Ranch, and more. Corddry, who has four Emmys and a Peabody, found fame on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart while starring in shows such as Arrested Development, Community, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.  

Bovingdon is the automotive journalist of the bunch with more than 20 years of experience with wheels, pens, and cameras. He’s written for CAR, EVO, and others, and has played host for Car and Driver. His experience goes beyond writing about cars – he races, too, winning his class three times in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race.  

This is BBC’s third attempt to make a U.S. version of Top Gear a success. The first show starred Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust, and Rutledge Wood. While the show had a rough start, it aired for six seasons and 72 episodes before getting the ax. When the show ended in 2016, the three hosts and their on-air antics had found their stride, but it wasn’t enough to save the show. Top Gear America followed in 2017 with Antron Brown, William Fichtner, and Tom Ford. The show lasted for one season and eight episodes.  

The new Top Gear America will start streaming through the MotorTrend App next spring. The new show will join the app’s endless Top Gear content that includes more than 170 episodes of Top Gear UK, all the available Top Gear UK specials, three seasons of Top Gear: Extra Gear, and Richard Hammond's Crash Course and James May’s Cars of the People. The MotorTrend App requires a $4.99 a month subscription.

Koba, tapping on your idea, may I suggest to get a few MCFer to appears in the SGCM Vlog? I think the episode when Jamesc appears, it should break the viewership record! (since he maybe silenced by his MIL the very next second.[crazy])

Very offended. 

That you would forget Jeremy Clarkson's sound advice. 

More power! 

That's always good. 

And a throttle with a tendency to stick won't hurt. Get some thick floormats. 

And make sure they're Takata airbags.

😁

Yes, you got it! 😁

And remember...ABS, traction control etc. just make for poorer drivers. 

Turn them off!
