I bet that’s the fix for carbon monoxide entering inside the car. Washington State Police had a few cases of officers falling asleep at the wheel and that’s how they found it.

Or it could be engineered that way to not exhaust directly onto/next to the rear bumper. You see alot of cars with discoloration due to the high temp of the exhaust.

I also read that they did that to keep the tips from getting all soot covered

i knew, only because i watched every review video on the internet weeks before we bought ours.

and yes, they are for exhaust soot. that was a huge complaint from prior generation explorer owners. turbo engines seem to make a lot of soot.

I find it odd this is such a point of contention. They aren't "fake".

I take issue with the size of the pea shooter tips more than the fact that they turn down so I don't have to polish them once a month.

The main reason is to keep exhaust fumes from entering inside the vehicle through the back hatch which also keeps soot of the back end.
