This 500 HP Explorer ST with Launch Control Was Built to Destroy Hellcats.

Kurt's 500 HP Ford Explorer ST might be on it's way to earning the title of ultimate SUV troll. Under the hood is a lightly tuned 3.0L Ecoboost twin turbo V6, sending torque to all four wheels through a modified 10-speed transmission. I've been told the goal with this is to eventually leave a Durango Hellcat in the dust at the drag strip, but even with launch control and a splash of ethanol that may be a tall order. Either way, I'd love to see that.
