2017 EcoBoost Explorer Does an Awesome Burnout

By -

Disabling the all-wheel-drive system in the Explorer Sport creates an incredible tire slayer.

This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Corredor2130 and it features a 2017 Ford Explorer Sport doing a gigantic burnout. The Explorer Sport comes with standard all-wheel-drive, so we don’t see many burnouts from these EcoBoost-powered sport utes, but the owner of this vehicle has figured out how to disable the all-wheel-drive system. The result is a front-wheel-drive SUV with 365 twin turbocharged horsepower and endless tire-slaying potential.

EcoBoost Power

The 2017 Ford Explorer Sport is a great SUV for the driver who wants an all-season daily driver with lots of space and lots of power. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost offers 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, making for a surprisingly quick vehicle for its size. With so much power on tap, the Explorer Sport would be able to do some righteous burnouts if not for the standard all-wheel-drive system preventing that sort of thing.

Fortunately, the owner of this EcoBoost-powered Ford SUV has figured out how to disable the rear-drive portion of the system, resulting in all of that turbocharged power being focused on the front wheels. As you might imagine, 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque being funneled to the front wheels coupled with the emergency brake leads to an incredible burnout machine.

Front-Drive Burnout

We are going to go out on a limb here and say that this very well may be the best burnout video online for the modern Ford Explorer. Such, the owner had to pull a fuse to disable the rear wheels, but we think that the ends justify the means.

2017 Ford Explorer Sport Burnout End

The burnout only last about 10 seconds, but in those 10 seconds, this Explorer creates a ton of smoke from the front tires, which kind of shows why the Explorer Sport with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost comes with standard all-wheel-drive.
