Director Michael Bay revealed that Barricade, a Decepticon robot who transformed into a Mustang police car will take a new vehicle form in Transformers' fifth movie. Barricade first transformed into a fifth-gen Mustang police car in the first Transformers movie.
According to Motor Authority, the sidekick Bumblebee will also appear in a new vehicle form. This time, the bad guys are the focus and an old foe Barricade who dueled with Bumblebee back in 2007 will take a new vehicle mode.
For its latest movie, Barricade will be featured as the sixth-gen Ford Mustang car with front protective bars, new blacked-out headlights surrounds, A-pillar-mounted spotlights, vented hood and rear fenders tagged with "to punish and enslave" label.
In a related Moviepilot post, Actor Josh Duhamel also said, "Exactly how the Decepticon is making a return is unclear, but it's safe to assume that the threat is real - after all, the deadly vehicle still has the promise 'to punish and enslave' on the back, instead of the standard law enforcement pledge "to serve and protect."
On a side note, the 2016 Ford Mustang recently entered Malaysia's auto market in two guises. The first is a 2.3L EcoBoost-powered Mustang that provides 317 horsepower and 432 lb.-ft. torque. The second is the 5.0L 8-cylinder-powered Mustang with a more exhilarating 416 horsepower and 530 lb.-ft. torque.
According to Paultan, an image of Barricade's new look is tweeted by Josh Duhamel, the actor who reprise the role of Lt. Colonel William Lennox, on his official page on Twitter.
While the fifth Transformers installment filming still happening, it seems that we can expect some heart-pounding speed chases which involves the new Barricade and Bumblebee, who was first revealed to take the form of a 2016 Chevy Camaro.
Aside from Josh Duhamel, other actors that will be returning for the fifth Transformers movie include Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager and Peter Cullen who voices Optimus Prime plus a rumored addition of Anthony Hopkins.
