Top Gear USA Is Learning How Not To Drive Off-Road This Season

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Rutledge Wood, Tanner Foust and Adam Ferrara are firing up Top Gear USA again starting April 26th. Looks like they’re in store for some pain, suffering and rollovers which in my experience usually makes for good car videos!

Rutledge just posted this trailer for the new season on Facebook, which features the three hosts on what looks like an extremely technical rock crawling trail (possibly part of the famous Rubicon?) with a Suzuki Samurai, what looks like a Ford Bronco II and a bright yellow Toyota 4Runner wrapped in an exo-cage.

Since this filming, that Toyota is now owned by the extraordinary off-road guide and Jeep expert Nena Barlow, who turned it into a “training truck” teaching people how to recover flipped-over 4x4s. As some readers may recall, she and international off-roader Scott Brady taught us how to do a proper winch recovery at last year’s Easter Jeep Safari.

(Correction: Ms. Barlow bought this vehicle after this Top Gear USA episode was filmed, which was previously not specified.)

Anyway, we’ll all be able to see what the boys of Top Gear US really got up to on the History Channel, April 26 at 9 p.m. EST.

(The yellow Toyo’s name is Candy, by the way.)
