'Top Gear' Experts Attempt to Drive Pickups

Oh, this should be good (read that with a heavy dose of sarcasm).

In an upcoming episode of the BBC America’s “Top Gear,” not only do we have Brits driving full-size pickup trucks up a snowy Canadian Rockies’ mountaintop where we can’t see any trail markers, but they’ve pitted a 2014 600-horsepower Hennessey Ford F-150 VelociRaptor against a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Duramax turbo-diesel. We don’t know all the details, but suffice it to say that these pickups were not used within their normative capability parameters. We can’t wait to see which one wins this classic confrontation: Ford or Chevy.

And why no Ram Power Wagon or Toyota Tundra TRD Pro?

In any case, catch it at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time March 2 on BBC America. To give you a taste of what to expect, we share this trailer from the show.
