TRUCKIN’ FAST EcoBoost Explorer vs. Evolution and Saab 9-3

explorer v evo

This week’s Truckin’ Fast video features a newer Ford Explorer Sport taking on a couple different turbocharged cars – including a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and a Saab 9-3.

We don’t have any details on any of these vehicles, but based on the ETs laid down, I would guess that the Explorer and Saab were lightly modded while the Evo could be factory stock.

In the first race, the Explorer takes on the Evo X, and when the turbocharged Japanese gets a bit of a head start, the turbocharged Ford SUV is left trying to play catch up. The Explorer falls a touch short, but still runs an impressive time of 13.48 at 100 and change.

On the second run, the Explorer gets the hole shot advantage and pulls away on the big end, running a slower 13.93, but beating the little Saab.
