Power Wheels Dune Racer, Green by Fisher-Price
The Power Wheels Dune Racer is a 2 seat, open cockpit design with large off road “tires”. This cool dune buggy’s main feature is Monster Traction which delivers superior terrain performance. The vehicle drives two speeds forward (2.5 and 5 mph maximum) and 2.5 mph in reverse. It also has a front storage compartment and seat belts for added play, a metal frame and nickel plated side safety bars. For enhanced appearance the product has metal plated wheels, front bumper, and shifter. Includes a 12-volt battery and charger.
The Fisher-Price Power Wheels Dune Racer provides a safe and fun way to get your kids into the driving action. Designed for outdoor use, this off-road vehicle features a Monster Traction drive system that enables it to go on hard surfaces, wet grass, and rough terrain. Its sturdy steel frame with flashy chrome accents boasts an open cockpit design that is roomy enough to handle two riders. With two forward drive speeds, one reverse speed, and a 12-volt rechargeable battery, this Dune Racer offers hours of fun for ages three and up.

Secret storage compartment under the hood for role play fun.
Steel Frame is Built for Safety
The Power Wheels Dune Racer is constructed with a sturdy steel frame that supports a maximum weight of 130 pounds. Sleek chrome accents on the rims, bumper, and shifter highlight its durable bright green plastic exterior. A pair of metal sidebars provides stable hand supports, while the pretend seatbelts with Velcro fasteners help get kids in the habit of buckling up. For added safety, the interior of the vehicle features smooth contours and rounded edges to protect against cuts and scratches.
Monster Traction Drives on Rough Terrain
The Power Wheels Dune Racer is designed to navigate rough terrain for off-road fun. The vehicle's big, rugged tires and Monster Traction drive system keep it from getting stuck–hard surfaces, lush lawns, wet grass, gravel, and mud are no obstacle at all! Common backyard bumps like tree roots, ruts, sidewalk and driveway edges, and garden hoses are also easily navigable.
Two Speeds for Beginners and Advanced Users
Whether your child is a beginner or an advanced driver, the Dune Racer's two driving speeds can accommodate him or her. The vehicle features an electronic power lock braking system that automatically stops the vehicle when your child's foot lifts from the pedal. A shifter with high-speed lockout for beginners provides custom control of driving speeds–low speed for normal 2-1/2-mph cruising, and high speed for maximum 5-mph racing. The vehicle can also shift into reverse for convenient backing up.
The Power Wheels Dune Racer performed remarkably well in testing. The vehicle took approximately 90 minutes to assemble and 18 hours to fully charge. Its solid construction and low center of gravity provided optimal handling and balance. Thanks to its 12-volt rechargeable battery, the vehicle drove with sufficient power backwards and forwards, providing an enjoyable ride. However, steering capability was somewhat limited, and the plastic tires easily wear on hard surfaces. Despite these concerns, kids will likely appreciate the sleek styling, powerful handling, and custom controls.
