The Yuletide season is just around the corner. Tagged as the time for giving and receiving, the Yuletide season usually brings joy and smile to small kids. Why not add a little bit of thrill? That’s a welcome proposition, and children’s cars could well take care of that.
For that reason, toymaker Fisher-Price has been making Power Wheels, small rides made especially for toddlers, preschoolers and even young grade-schoolers. Just recently, Ford and Fisher-Price teamed up to produce a Power Wheels version of the current sixth-generation Mustang but with a little bit of twist, allowing kids small kids to experience a more exciting and close-to-reality driving fun and enjoyment.
Called as the new Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang, this could be considered as the most advanced Power Wheels so far. This is mainly because the Smart Drive Mustang has been designed and created using actual Ford design data. Based on the V8 trim of the Ford Mustang, the Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang looks and feels like the real thing. That is not all though.
Designed to accommodate a kid-drive and a kid-passenger, this new Power Wheels is provided with a computer-controlled powertrain that could serve several functions – the Smart Drive. This system allows for improved performance, driving and safety. Thanks to integrated sensors, Smart Drive could control traction even when traversing on tough terrain.
It could also improve stability by shutting down the motor in case of a possible rollover. Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang also features a launch control system that could speed up or slow down the motor in a gradual manner, which means that this kid’s drive doesn’t stop or accelerate suddenly to the point that its riders would fall off or swerve unexpectedly.
In addition, this Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang features a 5-speed control with a backlit LED touchscreen – allowing parents or guardians to set the maximum forward speed between 1 mph and 5 mph! Maximum reverse speed is 2 mph. Furthermore, the Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang is loaded with a safety brake system with Power-Lock brakes.
And there is more! The new Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang offers a realistic and fun drive by sounding like the real thing. This new kiddy ride is installed with an amped premium sound system, loaded with real car sounds that synchs to its young driver’s piloting moves. However, the volume of this audio system could be adjusted accordingly, if parents or guardians deem the sound too loud. Furthermore, Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang allows kids to listen to three 3 pre-loaded songs or their own music through the MP3 jack.
The Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang will be available starting December either in pink or blue with an MSRP of $359.99.
