Highway chase features 2020 Ford Mustang GT and 2016 Chevrolet SS

The Car Acceleration YouTube channel is known for doing exactly what its name suggests: acceleration and comparison videos. Most of the sections run on the same road using premium fuel from the same gas station, and most cars are either rented or owned by a group of friends.

The latest to come from the Car Acceleration Channel is the street and highway challenge between the Ford Mustang GT and the A. Chevrolet SS Sedan – And things started out a little differently. At the beginning of the video there is a disclaimer explaining that the SS sedan was riding the bumper of a “too tough” Mustang and the duo resorted to some street-flying.

While this may now be as exciting as a high-speed chase or organized race, watching Ford and Chevy go for it is always a sight for sore eyes. For the convenience of viewers, the video description breaks down the procedure to show the first and second flight laps when he waved at a Chevy sedan to line up, but then was shot by an SS owner. Then things get more exciting with a chase and a third flight attempt.

The Ford Mustang GT tried its best to catch up and line up again, but then the Chevy SS gets ahead of it before it can even get to it. Ultimately, the dynamic duo handles it a bit during a highway chase before the Ford Mustang GT’s transmission starts shifting short gears and goes into “limp mode.” Say whatever you want …
