That's because the Grand Tour sets up tent in the Nordic country. And its covered in snow.

Deck the halls...

The show's presenters - Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond - are all dressed in Christmas apparel and looks to be celebrating a white christmas in the snow-covered country.

In the trailer the friends exchange gifts that has something to do with motoring. For instance, May gives Clarkson a pair of motorised shoes and as is mandatory, Clarkson tries it out.

He shouldn't have tried it out... *sigh

WATCH: When will The Grand Tour be available in SA? Clarkson and co have a message for fans

On actual motoring, May drives a Ferrari 330 P4. Only three 330 P4's were ever made in 1967, so it's very likely that May is driving a replica.

Clarkson and Hammond take each other on in a battle to discover the best Ford Performance car. Hammond drives a Mustang GT and Clarkson the Focus RS.

Personally, having driven both cars this year, I think the Focus RS is the more complete car.

Review: Ford's Focus RS should come with gloves

The episode looks to be everything and more the trio have come to deliver. This should be exciting!
