Mark Wahlberg, playing the role of Cade Yeager along with his friend Lucas, acquires an old truck with the hope of making money out of its parts. Cade soon identifies the truck as Optimus Prime and starts repairing the rusting robot.
Western Star 4900 Phantom
During the film, Optimus transforms into a Western Star, since when you try hiding from the Decepticons and CIA, there is nothing more ordinary than a big-rig with chrome accents and red flames. However, the Western Star 4900 Phantom suits Optimus perfectly.
1967 Chevrolet Camaro
While the Autobots continue to hide at the start of the film, Bumble Bee drops down his yellow-flashy form in favor of a black flat classic Camaro. With staggered wheel setup and round fender flares, you may not know if you like the concept or classic better.
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Concept
Let us be candid, besides Cade Yeager’s daughter Tessa, the role played by Nicola Peltz, Bumble Bee is the one, most of us want to see in the Transformer series. Bumble Bee’s hot-headed persona matches perfectly with its yellow and black hot rod exterior. This Camaro concept is very mild as long as concepts go and may not change much when rolling off the assembly line.
2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sports Vitesse
Refined, powerful and precise – the Bugatti Veyron is the car-type of Drift, an ex-Decepticon who now utilizes his robotic samurai skills to fight for the Autobots. The character was voiced by Ken Watanabe.
2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
When the new Corvette Stingray was launched in the year 2014, it was lauded, and its love fest continued in the Transformers series. The Autobot Paratrooper voiced by John DiMaggio, Crosshairs, utilizes the American sports car as it seemed an ideal car-type. When it is concerned about style, the Corvette Stingray holds its style next to Bugatti Veyron costing approximately 27 times more. Even Bugatti does not have a bigger spoiler that you should know that is critical to generating downforce.
Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle
It is an old-school commando Autobot, The character was voiced by John Goodman. It is a suitable vehicle for Goodman mainly because they both show that overweight as well as a cigar smoking, “I am the American in charge of this operation” appearance.
2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Lamborghini Aventador is a Lockdown car form – an intergalactic bounty seeker who has been hired for capturing Optimus Prime by the Autobots supposed creators. Lockdown meets his end when Optimus stabs him epically through his back and then slices upwards through his head.
2014 Freightliner Argosy
Galvatron is the man-made version of Prime’s nemesis, Megatron. So, it is only considered that Galvatron transforms into a truck that is equivalent to Western Star. In the film, Galvatron survives and then vows to defeat Optimus some other day, leading to the expectation of another sequel, maybe more.
Pagani Huayra is one of the most exotic additions to the Decepticon lineup of TF-4. It is a human-made transformer car, Stinger car-form, run under Galvatron’s control.
Chevrolet Traxes are mass-produced transformer cars that are controlled by Galvatron to take part in the Decepticon army. Chevrolet Trax is expected to hit the United States market in the coming future.
Chevrolet Sonic RS
Shane Dyson (Rally Driver), the role played by Jack Reynor, is the secret love of Tessa Yeager, Cade’s daughter. The Chevrolet Sonic RS is a complete rally car. It would be impractical if Shane drives his custom built rally car every day. But, Sonic RS surely a handy car while being chased by the CIA and maybe a bunch of giant robots on the tow.
Local Motors Rally Fighter
Surprisingly, the coolest car in the Transformers 4 is not at all a Transformer car. It is, in fact, the Local Motors Rally Fighter. The open-source car is driven by the CIA in the Chevrolet Sonic RS chase scene. In reality, each Rally Fighter is custom made with the assistance of the buyer’s futuristic looks, which is street legal in all the states in the U.S. This mean machine is a beast at handling even the toughest desert terrain.
Chevy’s plug-in hybrid car, The Chevrolet Volt, appears only during one scene throughout the film, when the landlord (or may be a real estate agent) shows the Cade Yeager’s house to the potential buyers. Yeager’s family is still residing in the house at that time, and Cade threatens the potential buyers as well as the agent with a baseball bat. As the agent drives off in the Volt, she damages the power supply lines that Cade uses to borrow electricity from his neighborhood.
1970 Chevrolet C10 Pickup
‘Chevy runs deep’, used to be Chevy’s slogan, mostly because since the release of first Transformers installment, Chevy has been involved deeply in the series than any other automobile maker. If you can recollect, Cade’s first drive in the film is a vintage Chevrolet pickup. Unfortunately, just like many other things in the Transformers series, it gets blown while CIA comes in the lookout of Yeager family and Optimus Prime.
Lucas Flannery, Cade Yeager’s best buddy, drives the Mini Cooper, who, unfortunately, gets killed at the film’s start. The poor Mini could not take so much of screen time as it suffered the same fate just as the Chevrolet C10 which gets blown up too.
CIA members drive the Cadillac Escalade SUV, which costs about $70,000 which is the right use of tax dollars, were constantly shot at, crushed, blown up and demolished by the Transformers in every angle.
