The Hess Corporation announced its new toy truck for this holiday season. The 2011 Hess Toy Truck and Race Car will be the first product of the collection’s 47-year history to incorporate sounds and lights in both vehicles.

The truck set has a four-wheel spring suspension and a pull-out ramp that automatically activates a hydraulic sound. The truck set also includes sound effects and flashing lights. The race car features chrome-look detailing, engine sound effects, a pull-back racing motor, and more.

The Hess Toy Truck and Race Car set is available at Hess retail stores and online.
