Freightliner Argosy truck on the set of Transformers 4 movieEnlarge Photo
Just when you think there’s nothing more from Transformers 4 for Michael Bay to show us, the movie’s director releases yet another photo of a new vehicle destined to feature in it.
The latest vehicle is another truck from Daimler Trucks North America, which also supplies the Western Star truck serving as Optimus Prime’s vehicle mode in the Transformers movies.
This new truck is the latest version of the Freightliner Argosy, which Bay described as being somewhat “imposing.”
Given its color scheme and almost sinister appearance, we think the truck would make a great Decepticon, though we can also see it serving on the side of the Autobots. A number of fans are already hailing the new truck as being Motormaster, leader of the Stunticons.
Other vehicles announced for Transformers 4 include a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, a Corvette Stingray and Sonic RS rally car from Chevrolet, a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, a Pagani Huayra, a military truck from Oshkosh Defense, the aforementioned Western Star truck, and a classic 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Note, a modern, fifth-generation Camaro SS has also been spotted on one of the movie's sets, suggesting Autobot Bumblebee will transform into both versions during the movie.
The latest installment of the Transformers franchise is being filmed and is set to premiere nationwide on June 27, 2014. The movie will take place roughly four years after the events of 2011's Transformers 3 - Dark of the Moon, though none of the previous human characters are expected to return. The lead character, Flynn Vincent, will be played by Mark Wahlberg.
