What’s New for ’22 – Hot Wheels Full Lineup Released

Hot Wheels’ lineup of diecast vehicles for 2022 has just been released, and there are several interesting new offerings. The list includes lots of new castings as well as new variants of old favorites. Let’s check out a few.

The early second-generation Pontiac Firebirds don’t get as much attention as the “Smokey and the Bandit” era cars, but Hot Wheels is finally fixing that with this hoodless hot rod. The engine bay bracing is a nice touch (See photo above).

The Bricking Trails off-roader continues the ever-growing series of Lego… we mean Mega Blocks-friendly vehicles from the past few years. C’mon, you have to take this one out of the package to play with it!

There’s a new Mustang in town… the Mach-E electric ‘Stang is available in drift form. So even with the silent drive train, at least the wheels can squeal with delight.


The usual slate of Treasure/Super Treasure Hunts will be coming out throughout the year, as well as several models exclusive to various retailers. There is also a nice series called Ryu’s Rides including several of the best designs penned by the late, great Ryu Asada who passed away last year.
