It’s good to see the battle between the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro spill over to the big screen. The previous Transformer fight between Barricade and Bumblebee was in Transformers: Age of Extinction, where we got to see a Saleen Mustang in police livery duke it out with a yellow 1967 Chevrolet Camaro (before turning into a 2014 fifth generation Camaro.) Based off the latest tweet from Josh Duhamel, star in the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight, Barricade will be getting a new suit based off the latest sixth generation ‘Stang.

The new Barricade bulgier front fenders make it look like it’s based off the Shelby GT350, which we have reviewed to be the best bang for your buck, rather than a traditional Mustang, but its difficult to tell looking through the grill guard and police lights.
With Bumblebee being the new sixth generation Camaro, it’ll be interesting to see how this movie will interpret the Ford VS Chevy competition that’s currently going on right now. Transformers: The Last Knight will open in theaters June 23, 2017.
