'Top Gear' Crosses The Continental Divide In Minivans (VIDEO)

The "Top Gear" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on History) team became the first people to cross the continental divide on a mule trail, and their vehicle of choice was the humble minivan.

As they navigated through a treacherously narrow pass in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, convoy leader Tanner Foust ran into trouble. His minivan got stuck on the edge of a cliff.

The first sign of danger was when Tanner noticed that "the back end is trying to slip off the freaking cliff right now."

As he urged his minivan on he became firmly stuck. He couldn't drive forward, but couldn't reverse either because his rear tires were inches from the edge.

Eventually his co-hosts Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara joined forces to push him on with their minivans.

As the trio completed their epic drive a jubilant Adam announced: "We have crossed the continental divide! In minivans!"

"Top Gear" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on History.
