Differences Between Evenflo Revolve 360, Revolve 360 Slim & Revolve 360 Extend Car Seats
There are now THREE different models of the popular Evenflo Revolve360 Rotating Carseat and there are various “trim levels” that offer different features at different price points. It can get confusing, so we’re going to break it all down for you.
All Revolve360 models have the ability to rotate both rear-facing and forward-facing, unlike some other rotating car seats that only swivel when used rear-facing. We have a fabulous chart that outlines the main differences between each of the Revolve360 models and there is additional info on each model and its various “trim levels” in the summary section below.
Original (OG) Evenflo Gold Revolve360 models are being replaced by an updated version of the original, which will be a Walmart exclusive. The OG models, and the new updated Walmart version, all have a maximum rear-facing weight limit of 40 lbs. and a maximum rear-facing height limit of 40″. The new Extend & Slim models are both rated up to 50 lbs. & 48″ rear-facing.
The Walmart-exclusive R360 model is only available in one black & gray fashion, called “Amherst”. This base model has hook-style LATCH connectors, which are not as nice as the push-on LATCH connectors found on all the other R360 models. Swapping the more expensive push-on LATCH connectors for less expensive hook-style connectors makes it possible for Walmart to sell their R360 model at a lower price.
Some of the original GOLD R360 models are still currently available and most retailers have discounted them to clear out inventory and make room for the newer models. These “OG” Gold R360 models are rated up to 40 lbs. and 40″ tall rear-facing and the fashions are Moonstone, Sapphire, Onyx & Opal Pink.
The chest clip on these fashions is black and does NOT offer the SensorSafe feature. This is an important detail to note and you’ll see why as you read on.

Evenflo Gold Revolve360 Extend with SensorSafe
This Extend model adds a *white* chest clip with SensorSafe technology but lacks the Quick Clean cover found on the other R360 Extend model.
The R360 Extend with SensorSafe comes in 4 fashions: Moonstone, Sapphire, Onyx & Opal. Currently, only the Onyx & Moonstone fashions are available but the other Gold Extend fashions with SensorSafe are coming soon.
If you’re not already familiar with SensorSafe – it’s technology integrated into the chest clip and when the chest clip is buckled (presumably because a child is in the seat), it can send alerts to your phone via an app. Alerts will be triggered if the chest clip becomes unbuckled, if the temperature inside the vehicle is too hot or too cold, if the child is left unattended in the vehicle, or if the child has been seated for too long.
The reason I pointed out that the chest clip is white? Look at these fashions! If they look familiar it’s because they are very similar to the original R360 model fashions (with black chest clips) that are being phased out and replaced. Don’t confuse the new Extend models with SensorSafe with the original R360 models because the covers look so similar and the fashions have the same names.
