    Trailerbreaker or Silversrtreak would be nice additions, either as the Orlando. :)

    None of the above. Far too boring a vehicle for a Michael Bay film. And it's already been revealed to the public. He has a knack for picking cars that nobody has seen yet.

    not true because the original camaro concept was unveiled a whole year and a strutted about a year and a half before the first movie came out.

    the orlando is too small to be Ratchet as it is based of of the Chevy cruz/chevy volt..aka jolt the volt and that platform would prolly be able to stretch but prolly only to midsize

    for ratchet to become an orlando the orlando would probably need to be based upon the current Impala or the aussie zeta platform as the Camaro/Pontiac G8 is based upon and even if you stretch the zeta platform

    the only one suitable might be the extended Zeta vehicles aka Chevy Caprice(middle east/Us government market) the Holden statesman Ausie/Eu market) and the chinese market Buick park avenue.

    now also take this into account the hummer H2 is based upon the 1998-2006 Chevy Tahoe/Gmc yukon/Caddy escalade regular lengths GMT platform

    which although smaller than it's Suburban/yukon/escalade EXl stablemates are still considered a fullsize SUV

    the orlando would make a cool perceptor though

    This.



    As for the Swindle option in the poll, Swindle already appeared in the Movie-verse comics, but was killed off.

    I find it a very uninteresting car. I doubt it will be a Transformer, honestly.

    $5 says the Orlando fulfills the same role the Saturn Astra did in the second one--transportation and something to wreck.
