Hess Offering New Toy Trucks Despite Selling Gas Stations
Despite selling its gas stations to Marathon Petroleum last year, the Hess Corporation has announced it will still be offering a new version of its popular toy truck this holiday season, but with a slight twist.
Instead of featuring its traditional green and white coloration, this year’s model will be a bright red fire truck and ladder rescue vehicle. Hess has called the fire truck “the boldest emergency vehicle in the Hess fleet.”

For those interested in purchasing the toys, Hess has announced the vehicles will be released on November 1st and will be sold online for $30.99. The toy will also be sold at mall kiosks in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. The fire truck and ladder rescue toy will come with five energizer batteries. Additionally, this year’s toy will feature LED lights, a searchlight, four sound effects, oversized tires, and swiveling chrome-detailed fire hose nozzles.
Although Hess no longer operates gas stations, the business still searches and drills for oil, as well as natural gas.
Hess has been offering the toy vehicles every year since 1964.
