YouTube has always been a good place for automotive fanatics, and today YouTube is announcing the addition of a couple new car channels, one of which sports a brand you may recognize.

The first new channel comes to you from Motor Trend. Here's what the Motor Trend Channel will offer users:

Get your automotive adrenaline charge right here on the Motor Trend channel. From first drives and tests of the hottest new supercars, muscle cars and motorcycles, to the latest automotive news from around the world, to the incredible machinery and personalities from beyond the automotive mainstream, the Motor Trend channel has it all, delivered daily. The Motor Trend channel. We drive it. We ride it. We live it.

You can expect the channel to have original programming from the folks that brought you Hot Rod, Motorcyclist, Lowrider, and Car Craft.

The other new channel is the Drive Channel.

Drive celebrates the culture of cars. On the road, to the races, to the factories, to the studios -- to the places you can't go. Cars may be something you need, but drive with us and you'll never look at them the same way again.

YouTube says that on the Drive channel, we can expect to find news, reviews, and commentary from people like Mike Spinelli, Leo Parente, and Chris Harris.

Ever since YouTube launched their new homepage, they've made a point to focus on channels. YouTube wants to beef up their offerings of original content, and promote those channels so that users can easily subscribe to their interests.

Last month, YouTube added new entertainment channels as well as new action sports channels, one of which features Tony Hawk.
