Auto site MotorAuthority has reveal Ford and Hasbro have collaborated on a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron character name, "Torque." Based on the Ford Ranger model that USA fans will be disappointed to hear is not available in their market. Touque follows the Falcatron character
that was created last August with his selection determined by fans who chose the bright orange of the Ranger Wildtrak trim package as the Autobot character's inspiration.
This time the fans chose the Ranger, but in its range-topping Wildtrak trim. This model packs a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel that’s rated at 197 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.
Torque’s bright orange finish is available on the Ranger Wildtrak, though that’s about all he has in common with the actual production model.
Ford has said it plans to use Torque in some promotional materials, just like it is doing with Falcatron. However, don’t hold your breath waiting to see either in Transformers 4--they were created just for Ford’s own promotional use.
