Bigger, Better, Faster, More: Welcome to the New Motor Trend
Notice anything different about our homepage? Hope so, because we have reimagined it with a focus on the things we do best: exciting automotive entertainment, the freshest new car reviews, and the latest car-shopping tools and research.
As you might have heard, we recently joined forces with Discovery Inc., a global leader in real-life entertainment and a specialist in broadcast automotive content. With this new partnership, we’re able to offer the Motor Trend original programs you know and love alongside popular automotive shows from The Discovery Channel and Velocity via our on-demand video service.
How? Well, if you subscribe to Hulu or Crackle, you’ll be familiar with how this works. The new MotorTrend.com homepage gives you direct access to free Motor Trend original programs. You pay nothing to access thousands of hours of original automotive entertainment, including* the back catalog of our Motor Trend YouTube Channel and past seasons of Roadkill, Hot Rod Garage, Dirt Every Day, Engine Masters, Head 2 Head, Ignition, Modified, House of Muscle, and Epic Drives. In addition, viewers can watch select episodes of Chip Foose’s Overhaulin’, Diesel Brothers, Fast N’ Loud, Chasing Classic Cars, Bitchin’ Rides, and Graveyard Carz. These shows will be free to binge watch on demand, but with advertisements.
Those who want an ad-free viewing experience should subscribe to Motor Trend’s premium on-demand service. For a low monthly fee (currently $4.99/month or $49.99/year), subscribers get access to the full Motor Trend experience, with no advertising interruptions. In addition to delivering the content found on Free, Motor Trend OnDemand Premium will be the first and (for up to eight weeks) only place* to see all-new episodes of original shows such as Roadkill, Dirt Every Day, Hot Rod Garage, Head 2 Head, and others.
In addition, a premium subscription unlocks* exclusive Motor Trend original programs you can’t get anywhere else, such as Roadkill Garage, Junkyard Gold, and Put Up or Shut Up, and daily doses of hosts David Freiburger and Fred Williams in Roadkill Extra and Dirt Every Day Extra. Add in thousands of hours of favorites such as Wheeler Dealers, Street Outlaws, American Chopper, and Fast N’ Loud, and you have the largest collection of original automotive entertainment anywhere.
In short, free is great, but subscribers to Motor Trend receive the very best experience. For just $4.99/month or $49.99/year:
Early exclusive access to all Motor Trend shows such as Roadkill, Hot Rod Garage, Dirt Every Day, and Ignition.

But wait, there’s more—really. In addition to upgrading the delivery of our video content, we have made the homepage slicker, easier to navigate, and faster to boot. Above the larger, bolder opening images is a simplified navigation bar that speeds up access to our video entertainment, car research, and buyer’s guide content. For those looking to buy a car, we now have a Find Your Car module at the top of the page and positioned our car reviews at the forefront under “Latest Car Reviews.”
The changes you see here are just the beginning. In the next few weeks, we’ll have more exciting news and updates, including a special offer, so bookmark this page, subscribe to our email newsletter, and stay tuned.
