The 1988 Ford Ranger GT you see in the video here packs a V8 attached to a massive, 94-millimeter turbo. That combination is set up to pump out around 1,600 horsepower, but it can be dialed in to produce as much as 2,000.
Sometimes the best rides can be found in the parking lot. Take this 1977 Ford F-150 Ranger for instance. The mean, green giant was featured in the Cheap Truck Challenge in Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine last year. They like to call it “Raymond” and their goal was to create “a hardcore wheeler with the look and feel of an old farm truck.”
While we generally feature a V8 or diesel powered F Series pickup doing a burnout on Tire Smokin’ Tuesday, this week we bring you what might be one of the most epic Ford Ranger burnouts I’ve ever seen.
Ford Ranger are amazing little trucks. They’re great at hauling, pulling, and, as we’ve seen many times now, jumping. Apparently jumping this Ranger was the driver’s New Year’s resolution, and he clearly enjoyed every minute of it.
While at the Woodward Dream Cruise a few months back, I saw a couple guys in Ford Super Duty pickups riding around with the hordes of muscle cars and, like the muscle cars, these high riding Ford pickups were doing big, smokey burnouts.
