Now we’ll dig into the features one by one to give you a more in depth view of this really cool ride.
Max Age & Weight
This truck is designed for a single driver or rider ages 3 to 8, that weighs no more than 65 pounds. For all of the features this truck is toting and it’s size a second seat would have been a nice addition. However, due to the game controller styled parental override included with this truck and the on board seat belt, we’ve seen some toddlers as young as 8 months old cruising around and seriously enjoying the ride!
Battery & Motor
This truck is powered by a 12 volt battery like many other ride on toys in this class of recent years. An additional battery can be added as an upgrade for more power and it could use an additional source of power for the extra features it has. The battery charges in about 8 to 12 hours and a full charge should give your little one about 1 – 2 hours of play depending on use.
The electric motor has low and high speeds with a maximum speed of 3.7 mile per hour. The high speed is a bit slower than the 5 mph speed on most ride on toys in this category.
Best Products place this truck in it’s “Hight Performance” category of ride on toys and we see why. The styling of the exterior is superb with it’s working head and fog led lights that give you a real truck feel especially at night. The roll bar is an added feature that resembles an authentic jeep. The windows are even tinted, it’s the small things that add to it’s high class look.
The interior shouldn’t be over looked either, the steering wheel and dashboard are all class as well as the interior controls for the lights and voltage read out and power button.
The on board radio plays a few tunes but it’s real power is in the aux input where you can plug in your mp3 player so your kid can rock and ride!
The parental controls are a great addition of late in many ride on’s and this truck has one as well. It makes for a comforting feeling for a parent to have override controls to the manual steering as well.
You have three color choices as well with this truck including pink, red and black and the paint colors are beautiful and to say the least.
The included seatbelt is a great safety feature and we here at the ride on toy store feel they should be mandatory in all kids electric vehicles. We feel precautions can never be over looked.
Wheels & Suspension
The fat black 14 inch wheels give the truck a nice off road feel. They look better than most smaller tires on other trucks and their not just for looks. The traction works really well on many surfaces not just pavement but dirt as well, grass and even sand. The rims have a brushed chrome finish.
The spring suspension is great not only to add to the monster truck appeal but it’s a feature that not all trucks in this class sport.
Pushing the looks aside is that the suspension ensures a super smooth ride as well making traversing bumps and rocks a breeze, that as well as the seatbelt helps to provide extra safety for your child.
