With fingers crossed and a little bit of confidence, just about anything is possible. Fisher-Price, in an effort to prove their scaled down version of the Ford F-150 was “Built Ford Tough” recently tested the limits of their Power Wheels version F-150 in the ultimate test of endurance and strength. The Ford F-150, the number one selling pick-up truck for more than 30 years, has had a long standing reputation of being the Clydesdale among its peers and competition as the leader in the industry.
In a recent partnering, Fisher-Price and Motor City Solutions, which handles the Ford fleet testing, wanted to prove the Power Wheels F-150 could venture beyond what wear and tear it might receive on a daily basis from the normal child. So what better way to display the strength of the mini-me Power Wheels F-150 than to show it could support the full weight of the full size version F-150?
Four special platforms were created to protect the Power Wheels F-150s as they had the 4,120-pound full-size F-150 lowered down onto the top of the four mini-trucks. In an amazing display, the mini F-150s proved beyond a doubt that they could stand up to their big brother counterpart with ease.
Not one of them broke or cracked in the slightest – each Power Wheel supported more than 1,000-pounds in an epic showing of endurance during the test. Proving Fisher-Price’s assumption right that their version of the F-150 was indeed “Built Ford Tough.”
What better time than to kick this test off during the holiday season with the official release of the all-new military grade aluminum 2015 F-150 now available to the consumer? With Christmas lists being made, we imagine Santa just might need a bigger sleigh – or better yet, maybe choose something that is “Built Ford Tough” with the big day quickly approaching. We of course want to be sure Santa is properly prepared.
