Can an actual Ford F-150 ride on 4 Power Wheels F-150s?
By Chris Bruce
Dec 8th 2014

A lot of kids are rough on their toys, especially when it comes to those made to be used outside, like a four-wheeled kid-size Power Wheels. Whether it's cruising through the sand box, carrying piles of rocks in the driveway or crashing around trees in the backyard, these motorized vehicles often take punishment from the moment the giftwrap comes off.

The folks at Fisher-Price decided to give their latest F-150 Power Wheels a true torture test worse than any kid could have ever managed by setting a real 2015 Ford F-150 on top of four of them. Would the little toy trucks explode in a shower of plastic shards in a massive collapse, and if not, could they drive away afterwards?

Very droll and well done. I love how the Ford engineers respond when they're asked if the four little Power Wheels F-150s will hold the real thing.

Nothing like a little tongue n' cheek humor to aid some cross-brand marketing.

Now I suppose the Power Wheels crowd will be talking about how they got passed over for Truck of the Year.
Hahaha. Perhaps! But in order to cash in on the recognition, maybe Power Wheels should do their own Chevy Colorado and have it tow around an oversized version of the MT golden calipers instead?

I don't know why GM doesn't get in on this. The last Power Wheels Chevy truck was the Silverado in the early 00's, both Ram and Ford have had Power Wheels models done in the last three years.

Power Wheels are great!

I bought and assembled a Silverado and an Escalade for one grandson, who loved to impress us with his tail slides on the driveway. He loved the Silverado so much, he paid for half the price of the Escalade when he decided to upgrade.

Then I assembled an Escalade for a grand daughter. If I remember correctly, they recommended no more than 185 lbs when driving the Power Wheels.

GM is missing the boat if they don't make a deal with Power Wheels to get a new "Silverado" on the toy store shelves.
