The Grand Tour Series 3 Episode 4 Preview – ‘Pick Up Put Downs’

In this episode, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May investigate the new breed of European pick-up trucks hoping to take on the American and Japanese establishment. Clarkson has a Volkswagen Amarok, Hammond has a Ford Ranger while May is in the new Mercedes X-class.

Collectively they test their trucks with a series of challenges built around the many stages of life in the developing world, starting with rural subsistence and running through the toppling of the dictator, the descent into civil war, and the bit where some idiot blows up a helicopter.

Along the way, there are chases and races and quite a lot of needless gunfire until the best pick-up is decided upon by everyone except James.

Also, in this show, Jeremy is at the Eboladrome to test the snorting, swollen, near-600 horsepower Jaguar XE Project 8. The Project 8 is powered by a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine and is the most powerful road-legal Jaguar in history. The Jag has also achieved the fastest lap ever for a Jaguar on the Nordschleife, faster than any other four-door production-intent sedan in history and faster than many renowned supercars.
