The season of drag race events involving cars from different segments continues on YouTube and this is a great addition to that saga.

This is a great drag race competition between a modified Toyota Fortuner and a Ford Mustang. Now, the YouTuber mentions that it is not fair to perform a drag race between these two cars with varying DNAs. On one hand, the Fortuner is a 7-seat off-road-focused SUV that is a popular choice for people looking for an imposing SUV. On the other hand, the Mustang is an iconic muscle car that is designed for enthusiastic and spirited driving. In this case, the Fortuner is modified which can make a difference in the final result.
