Transformers 4 Truck Called Hound is Oshkosh Defense M1157 A1P2

But General Motors quietly exited the C4500 - C8500 truck classes altogether in 2009. Most of the larger trucks were absolutely ancient. Imagine a Frito-Lay extra-long delivery truck, and you've got it.

The TopKick was a strong option for the films: huge, versatile with a dump-truck rear end, and looked great.

Ironhide outlived the Hummer H2 BayWatch car and Jazz, the oft-mocked Pontiac Solstice character with a somewhat racist accent.

Ironhide died in battle during Transformers 3, and will be replaced by a new medium-duty truck named Hound.
