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.

  • Drives 2.5 and 5 mph forward and 2.5 mph in reverse
  • Power-Lock Brake System
  • Includes 12-volt battery and charger
  • Max Weight: 130 pounds (59 kg)

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 interior of the vehicle features smooth contours and rounded edges to protect against cuts and scratches.

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.

My 3 year old daughter loves it!

Battery life seems to be pretty good, we didnt charge it for days and it still had some life in it.
Beach Mom
Goes well on all terrain; we've used it on dirt, concrete, asphault, grass, hills, etc.

For the sake of comparison, I also have the more traditional Power Wheels Barbie Jammin Jeep Wrangler, which, admittedly, isn't as boy-oriented in terms of cosmetics.

Out of the box, my very first thought was "is that a box steel frame?". Sure enough, it was. The Dune Racer seemed pretty serious. So serious, in fact, that it wasn't until I was in to step 12 or so, before I noticed that the wheels even have directional treads. (Note to parents / assemblers: the front wheels are helpfully marked "left" and "right". The rear wheels, which go on before the front wheels, have no such marking, and are not designed to ever come off of the axle after being installed.)

Total assembly time on my own was a good hour plus. Easily twice the time of a "normal" Power Wheels model, but in retrospect, for good reason. Between the steel frame and metal tubing, the Dune Racer is designed to take some abuse, and that means many more pieces to assemble. With the exception of the wheels, assembly was pretty straightforward and pieces all lined up as they should. There was a fair amount of moving the Dune Racer on its side to complete assembly steps, and the plastic scratched easily on my concrete driveway. Definitely save the cardboard to set the Dune Racer on when you assemble it.

Unlike most of the "battery under the hood" Power Wheels models, the Dune Racer battery goes in a flap in the rear. Getting the battery in and out isn't the easiest thing in the world, and the instructions for battery orientation are pretty hopeless on this step. Suffice it to say: the door doesn't push the battery in further. If it doesn't close easily, the battery's not aligned right.

**Prior to first use, the battery must be charged for 18-24 hours!** I had a Jeep model Power Wheel ride-on when my children were younger and smaller. They are now 12 and almost 11. Yes, of course they are too big and too old for this toy, however any child will squish themselves into these ride-ons for as long as they possibly can! My kids were thrilled to learn that I was able to get this through The Amazon Vine Program. They rode their old Jeep so much that I had to order new wheels! There are so many things we LOVE about this Dune Buggy ride-on! For starters it is definietly a bit larger than the typical two-seat Power Wheel ride-on. The Dune Buggy has extra large (taller) rear wheels, and the width of it is also wider than typical so it fits my kids much easier than a traditional size model. The best part is the lack of "dashboard" to this model so bigger kids can get in and out of the Buggy more easily. Very young kids may find the lack of dashboard more cumbersome to navigate getting in and out of the car for lack of "hand holding area" to steady themselves. The colors are so zippy! Lime green, charcoal, black, and shiny finish plastic "chrome" hub caps and front bumper, and real metal chrome side bars. Perhaps the real metal chrome sidebars could become hot to touch in hot and sunny weather, and also possibly cause injury if a child fell onto the bar or got their foot/hand/arm stuck between the bar and lower edge of the car. In my opinion, children should never be allowed to play in this ride-on without direct adult supervision. It took me at least 45 minutes to assemble the Buggy by myself and another 15 minutes to carefully apply all of the stickers.Read more ›

I have 2 boys (3yrs and 21 months) and they absolutely love this racer. I love the fact it can go on and off road unlike many other car/trucks. My wife was able to assemble within a couple of hours. HIGH RECOMMEND

I searched a long time before picking this ride on toy for my 5 year olds birthday. After a week, I think I did very well. First, this little dune buggy gets around great. It is actually pretty fast in high gear on pavement. It can easily drive through grass and up a 10% or so grade in one part of our yard. The tires have great traction, much better than a smaller ride on we had before where the tires would often spin on a remotely smooth surface. It is very roomy inside. Our 7 year old can easily use it. It is a great car if you don't want your kid to outgrow it because they basically sit in it with their leg extended straight out (at 5), but they have plenty of room to bend their knee if they are taller because they are sitting so flat and there is no dash or anything to get in the way of them doing that. Even the steering column is pretty small which would be the only obstruction. It seems very well made. It actually has a metal frame underneath it. This was about the cheapest ride on we found and it shipped via regular UPS so we didn't have to mess around with scheduling freight shipping and the horrible hassle it would be if the thing needed returned by freight. It was pretty easy to put together. Took maybe 45 minutes and was mostly just putting in some screws. The turning radius is not extremely tight if I had a small complaint. Some people complained about it being a bit too big for their kid who couldn't reach the pedal and that seats weren't adjustable. This is not an issue for us, but all you would need to do is put a small pillow of needed thickness behind the childs back to scoot them forward a bit until they can reach better and to me the fact that I know my 7 year old could use this for at least a couple of years and that my 5 year old can for many years is way more important. I highly recommend.
