The New Power Wheels Mustang Is As Smart As The Real Thing

Ford made considerable advancements with the introduction of the current sixth-generation Mustang, ditching the live rear axles for a fully independent suspension, introducing a compact EcoBoost turbo four as an alternative to the V8, and taking the old retro design in a new direction. It only stands to reason, then, that the Power Wheels version should follow suit.

Designed to emulate the real thing, the new Smart Drive Mustang is the most advanced Power Wheels yet. It features a computerized powertrain that incorporates traction control, stability control, and launch control.

The electronic traction control system monitors wheel slip and adjusts output to optimize traction. The stability monitor detects when the vehicle approaches roll-over and cuts off power. And a launch control system (of sorts) ramps up and slows down the motor incrementally instead of the old on/off throttle.

As if that’s not “smart” enough, the downsized pony car also features an LED touchscreen to monitor battery levels and allow parents to control the speed limiter in increments from 1 mile per hour to 5. There’s even a built-in sound system that plays the real Mustang’s engine and exhaust note, and can play music through an auxiliary jack through the biggest speaker Fisher-Price has ever used.

Want to see it in action? Scope it out in the video below. The Power Wheels Smart Drive Mustang will be available in pink or blue starting next month with an MSRP of $359.99.
