Fisher-Price Power Wheels Ford F150 Reviews
We bought this for our 5 year old son for Christmas. Previously he has been driving around a “Power Wheels” Jeep that was my daughter’s until she outgrew it, so we can give you a head-to-head comparison between the two. The F150 is quite a bit bigger than the Jeep, it came in a HUGE box! It is wider, taller and longer; and has much more clearance underneath. There is some assembly involved as well as applying of decals, but the instructions are good and the assembly is nothing complicated. I haven’t seen this mentioned before in the reviews, but the “Monster Traction” feature comes by way of a separate electric motor driving each rear wheel (2 motors total). Typical Power Wheels have a single electric motor driving one rear wheel while the other rear wheel free-wheels. The Monster Traction definitely works, the Jeep gets stuck in certain places in our yard (particularly on the grade changes between pavement and grass) while the F150 easily breezes across those same areas. But here’s something you need to know, if you install the low speed lockout on a Monster Traction vehicle, it no longer has Monster Traction! Only the right rear wheel is active at low speed and in reverse. As a result, it gets stuck on all but the most solid terrain in low speed or in reverse. In reading some of the complaints about traction here I’m guessing this is due to low speed running. You’ve got to keep it on high to take advantage of the Monster Traction driving both rear wheels.
This is a terrific toy for children. I’ve purchased several Power Wheels before. My grandchildren love to ride them in our big backyard. This product is over the top. It has all the bells and whistles. I especially like the fact that two children can ride together. I was as excited to watch them and they were to drive.
