power wheels jeep

Let’s face it — it might seem like the market for kids electric cars is growing almost as fast as the real EV market. Though that isn’t entirely true, these days, there are hundreds of options when it comes to picking your child’s new favorite toy — a brand new kids electric car, perfectly sized for them and their adventures. There might be no more iconic or sought after kids electric car than a Power Wheels Jeep.

Fisher-Price has been the leading manufacturer of toys since 1930, and Power Wheels has been alongside them since the 1980s. The classic Jeep Wrangler is one of the most popular Power Wheels designs among kids electric cars. That’s why we’ve outlined all the important details about the Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler, which comes in a variety of colors and designs. After all, you shouldn’t be the only one in the family riding in style in a unique customized Jeep!

The Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler

Right off the bat, you can admire how much this kid’s electric car resembles the actual Jeep Wrangler with the iconic Jeep grille, wide fenders, and roll bar. Your child’s favorite part may be the sticker decals, but they will soon grow to appreciate the rest of this awesome Power Wheels Jeep.

Power Wheels Jeep Key Features

Regardless of which Wrangler you choose to purchase, all of the Power Wheels Jeep Wranglers have the same key features. Across the board, the Power Wheels Jeep is very safe for children to use. The most unique safety feature is its high-speed lockout option. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to immediately know what that means! “High-speed lockout option” is a fancy way of saying that there is a parent-controlled way to limit the top speed to 2.5 mph. When you feel confident that your child is ready to take their driving speeds up to 5 mph, you can remove the high-speed lockout.

For even more safety, the Power Wheels Jeep is equipped with power-lock brakes. This means that when your child takes their foot off the gas pedal, the car will automatically stop. Removing unneeded complications that come with separate gas and brake pedals, the power-lock brakes make this kid’s vehicle user-friendly and extremely safe.

In terms of other features across all Power Wheels Jeeps, the little vehicles have doors that actually open and close, providing an easy (and fun) entrance and exit. Also, there is a roomy storage area to keep all your kid’s favorite toys, snacks, and adventure equipment. The Power Wheels Jeep is equipped with hard treaded tires, which are ideal for hard surfaces and grass, but not more extreme off-road scenarios, sadly.

The Power Wheels Jeep has a radio system that comes with five pre-programmed songs and other various noises that your child will love. The songs and noises vary, depending on the specific car — all of them are outlined below. With over 1,000 Amazon reviews, the average 4.5-star rating speaks to the fact that parents, guardians, and — most important — kids, LOVE the Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler.

With a maximum of 5 mph forward and 2.5 mph in reverse, this little Jeep is plenty fast for kids. It comes with the required 12V battery and the necessary battery charger. The recommended age for the driver and passenger is from ages 3 to 7 with a weight limit of 130 pounds total in the vehicle. The actual seating area dimensions are 18-inches long by 8-inches wide.
