The all-new 2018 Ford Mustang is living proof that it’s better to burnout than fade away.

Sizzling into showrooms this fall, the new Mustang will make burnouts a breeze for any muscle car enthusiast. How? It’s all about a new standard feature on all trims of this sports car staple.

Want to see how you’ll leave the lot up in smoke when you peel out in your new Mustang from County Ford? You’ll have to read on to find out.   

The Magic Behind the 2018 Ford Mustang’s Blazing Burnouts

The 2018 Mustang boasts a 460-horsepower Coyote V8 engine. But that’s not the method to Ford’s burnout madness. The secret is a feature used mostly by drag racers: electronic line-lock. See it in action here:

As you can see, the 2018 Mustang makes burnouts easier than ever before. While the electronic line-lock feature is for track-use only, it’s not just a trick that the pros can pull off. Executing a burnout is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Press the iconic Pony button to access the Mustang’s Track Apps™
  2. Select the line-lock feature, hold the Okay button until the tire graphic appears
  3. Push the clutch, put the transmission into first gear, step on the gas, let off the clutch, and witness 15 seconds of unbridled fury.

From general adrenaline junkies to Ford Mustang fanatics, everyone can appreciate a good burnout. And when the all-new Mustang debuts this fall, squealing tires and blowing smoke will never feel so accessible.
