F-150 with Small EcoBoost Does Donuts: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
F-150 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 roars and hisses while roasting the rear tires.
This week’s “Tire Smokin’ Tuesday” video comes to us from the YouTube channel of Jacob’s RC and it features a 2018 Ford F-150 cooking up some smoky donuts. This truck is equipped with the smallest, most efficient engine in the half-ton lineup, but that doesn’t stop the twin turbo V6 from roasting these tires as the back end swings around and around.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost v6 is one of the most powerful engines in the half-ton pickup truck segment while also being one of the most efficient, but the smaller, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is engineered to be the most fuel efficient gas-powered engine in the segment. With the standard 10-speed automatic transmission, this engine gets an EPA rating of 26 miles per gallon on the highway, 20 in the city and 22 combined, but in this video, none of that matters.
What does matter is that in stock form, the 2018 Ford F-150 with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 packs 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. That is more than enough power to smoke the rear tires hard, but when you start throwing around the back end, the burnout capabilities are taken to the next level.
Cooking the Donuts
As the video begins, the 2018 F-150 races towards the camera and lets off of the throttle, allowing us to hear the growl of the exhaust followed by the hiss of an atmospheric blow off valve. As the truck drives away from the camera, the driver hits the throttle and cuts the wheel, quickly beginning to smoke the tires as the truck draws dark black circles on what appears to be an old airstrip runway.
After 15 seconds of tire smoking and spinning, the driver straightens out the truck and coasts to the camera as the man behind the camera shares his enthusiasm in a not-safe-for-work way.
