What Will The Hess Truck 2017 Look Like?
No one knows for sure what the the 2017 Hess truck will be. It is a closely guarded secret by the Hess company. However looking at past Hess trucks you can get a idea. Here is the official HESS poster featuring all the Hess Toy Trucks since the very first 1964 Hess truck until the 2014 Hess truck. (This poster was released for the the Hess trucks 50th Anniversary. Only the 2015 Hess Fire truck and 2016 Hess Truck with Dragster are missing in this rare and official Hess poster.)
Since the first Hess truck was released in 1964 Hess oil company has been releasing a Hess toy truck almost every year resembling a vehicle from the Hess Corporations vast fleet vehicles. So the Hess truck 2017 will probably we one representing one of their company vehicles. In recent years they have been fond of releasing a flatbed transport kind of toy truck that transports the a smaller toy vehicle that comes with it.
According to Hess, it normally takes about two to three years from initial concepts until the Hess truck is released to the market. Some Hess truck have taken even more time, like even 6 years from concept to market! So who knows as we speak and look forward to the 2017 Hess truck, Hess toy factory right now is likely working on the 2018 Hess truck and maybe even the 2019 Hess truck and beyond. Who knows!
