TIRE SMOKIN’ Old School Ranger Does a Monster Burnout

2g ranger burnout

This week’s Tire Smokin’ video features a second generation Ford Ranger doing a monster burnout.

These older Rangers weren’t known for having powerful engines and this particular compact pickup is powered by a 2.9L V6 and an automatic transmission.

It doesn’t sound like a combination built for tire destruction on a dry road, but this old school Ranger blows my mind with the amount of smoke created in less than a minute.

At first, the driver is holding the Ranger in place and gradually easing into the throttle when, suddenly, both rear tires begin to spin.

The tires are just making a bunch of noise as the little V6 strains to keep them turning, but as the tires heat up, they really get to spinning hard and creating clouds of smoke.

This little truck doesn’t sound great while doing a burnout, but there is no denying that this is one impressive tire destroying session by the old Ranger.
