New Cat® Trial Brings Hot Wheels® to Life

Remember the hours you spent as a kid playing with Hot Wheels®? Maybe it was all those adventures in the sandbox. Or maybe it was the time you spent creating the most challenging track setups you could imagine. How cool it would be in real life? With Caterpillar, you don’t have to imagine it, as with Cat Trial 11: Hot Wheels® we’ve created an epic playground with the Next Generation Cat® Wheel Loaders and other Cat gear, incorporating life-sized versions of the cars you grew up with.

Bringing Back the Cat® Trials

For over 95 years, Caterpillar has been designing and manufacturing products that get the job done no matter what – from desert heat to arctic cold, from deep below ground to thin-air elevations. More than just offer products, we’ve made it a priority to ensure our customers succeed by providing critical services, building a world-class dealer network and applying innovation and technology to improve sustainability performance of our products, services, solutions and operations.

We’re proud of what our customers have accomplished – building critical infrastructure, powering cities, transporting goods – and proud of our team for supporting their unique challenges. So, to celebrate their work and our 95th year, we’re bringing back The Cat® Trials! 

The trials involve accomplishing tasks that were limited only by imagination - a fun way to represent the unique challenges our customers face every single day. Over the years the Trials have shown our Cat® products and services accomplish some incredible feats in Gigantic Jenga, Tug-o-War with a Mountain, memorable trips to Rio de Janiero and a Chinese mountain side. (They even picked up two Guinness World Records along the way.)
