Episodes feature segments ranging from semi-serious car reviews, many extravagant stunts, and some difficult trips, all filmed in various places around the world. The presenters introduce and discuss each episode from inside a mobile studio created inside a giant [[http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/entertainment/news/a30009/the-grand-tour-filming-first-episode/ tent]] and in front of a large audience, which was pre-taped in a different city each episode for the first series, but remained in one place for the second. They also engage in segments such as "Conversation Street" where they discuss current events in motoring, and "Celebrity Brain Crash", where they invite celebrities onto the show before said celebrities die on their way to the tent ([[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed fictitiously, of course]]). There is also a test track in a top secret location [[note]]Actually, near Swindon, if you're interested[[/note]] that happens to be shaped like the ebola virus, and so has been dubbed the Eboladrome. There they also have a test driver, ex-NASCAR racer Mike Skinner, nick-named as The American, who as he runs his test laps grumbles about the presenters, and that any car [[Main/NationalStereotypes not made in America]] is "communist."

As part of the show's global tone, and also due to the larger budget afforded them, the series travels around the world and to (arguably) more far-flung locations than in comparison with ''Top Gear''. The first tent setup and subsequent audience filming was in Johannesburg, South Africa on 17th July 2016, with the final audience segments taped for the last episode of the first series were recorded in Dubai, UAE on 10th December 2016. For the second series, the tent will remain in one place, the Cotswalds of the UK, and tapings will take place weekly before the show airs, similar to the set up on ''Top Gear''. The rest of the segments will be filmed in as many places around the world as possible.
