Top Gear America is a US motoring show that first aired in 2017 on BBC America. The show features three presenters - Hollywood actor William Fichtner, NHRA Top Fuel drag racer Antron Brown, and automotive journalist Tom Ford. The show follows a similar format to the UK version of Top Gear, with each episode focusing on a series of challenges and tests. The challenges range from full-speed tests of some of the fastest cars on the market to skill-based challenges, such as car soccer or truck hauling.

What sets Top Gear America apart from the UK version of the show is its focus on American car culture. The challenges and tests often take place in iconic American locations, from the beautiful mountains of Utah to the sand dunes of California.

William Fichtner, Antron Brown, and Tom Ford bring unique perspectives and experiences to the show. William Fichtner is a natural car enthusiast who brings his Hollywood charisma to the series. He's a knowledgeable and engaging presenter who always seems to be having a great time. Antron Brown brings his racing knowledge and skills to the show. He's a three-time NHRA Top Fuel champ, and his love of speed is infectious. Tom Ford is a British journalist who has written for publications like Top Gear and Evo Magazine. He brings a journalist's perspective to the show and is particularly good at breaking down technical details for viewers.

One of the standout episodes of the first season of Top Gear America is the episode where the presenters take three American muscle cars on a 2,000 mile road trip from Colorado to California. The cars they use are three iconic American muscle cars - a Shelby GT350 Mustang, a Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and a Camaro SS. The journey takes them through some of the most picturesque landscapes in America, and the trio have a great time putting the cars through their paces.

Another memorable episode of the first season saw the presenters take on an epic drag race challenge. Each of the presenters chose a car, and they lined up for a series of races on an abandoned airstrip. The cars they chose were three very different machines - a Lamborghini Huracan, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The race was full of surprises, and the presenters had a great time competing against each other.

Top Gear America also features celebrity guests each episode. The celebs compete in a challenge and then sit down for an interview with the presenters. The first season saw guests like musician Kid Rock and comedian Bill Goldberg join the presenters for a challenge.

One of the unique features of Top Gear America is the presence of Antron Brown. Antron brings a lot of racing knowledge and experience to the show, and he's very comfortable behind the wheel. The episodes where he takes the presenters out to the drag strip or puts a car through its paces on a race track are some of the most exciting moments of the show.

Overall, Top Gear America is a very enjoyable show that offers a uniquely American perspective on the world of motoring. The presenters have great chemistry, and the challenges and tests are entertaining and often thrilling. Fans of the UK version of Top Gear will find a lot to enjoy in this American take on the format.

Top Gear America is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (21 episodes). The series first aired on July 30, 2017.
