For its 27th season, Top Gear is bringing in two new hosts. Replacing Matt LeBlanc and Rory Reid are comic Paddy McGuinness and retired cricket player Andrew Flintoff, who will join automotive journalist Chris Harris. The BBC just released a trailer for the upcoming season, giving us our first look at this new trio.

As we've come to expect from Top Gear, no matter who's at the helm, there's a lot of vehicular shenanigans on display. Many involve a Jaguar hearse, which gets just a little too sideways. Harris also gets his hands on some choice machines, including Mario Andretti's 1978 F1 championship-winning Lotus 79. That should be one to watch.

For U.S. viewers, the new season of Top Gear will debut on Sunday, July 14th at 8pm EST on BBC America.

This new trailer is fun, but this new iteration of Top Gear has a lot to live up to. The shadow of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May still looms large, and the seasons with LeBlanc and Reid—who will still host the web-only Extra Gear—were excellent. Hopefully we won't have to wait long to see how this new trio stacks up.
