This SUV going tobeTF3 as Swindle,Trailbreaker/Trailhauler, or Silverstreak?
Trailerbreaker or Silversrtreak would be nice additions, either as the Orlando.
Sorry, but it screams Ratchet reformatted. It's a white minivan afterall.
swidnel alreayd apepared in the comics and he was killed
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.
why not the granite for swindle ? ?
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
bay would prolly apply a background/cannon fodder tf to it..like Jolt the volt which the orlando is based upon

Designer Jack Telnack...that's gonna be one small autobot
My Taurus is larger than the orlando
I wish it would be Hound.
I am actually wondering if everyone will reformat, the whole world knows about them now. Reformat to their g1 counterparts go out with a bang.
As for the Swindle option in the poll, Swindle already appeared in the Movie-verse comics, but was killed off.
Yes Yes and Yes!!
it just looks like it fits Swindles personality!!
and PLus it just looks damn sexy exp with those colors in that pic!
And we know how much bay follows the comics...
I'd like to see it as a new character who gets killed off within two seconds.
Probably the most likely of all fan wishes.
I find it a very uninteresting car. I doubt it will be a Transformer, honestly.
Geez, reminds me of the Twins.
i like the trailbreaker idea
$5 says the Orlando fulfills the same role the Saturn Astra did in the second one--transportation and something to wreck.
