We don't know. Simple as that. If the information isn't available to us, then we just don't know, and don't pretend to know.
But wasn't the name "Trax" given for these things in a previous news post?

Vehicon sounds cooler then drones or ksiformers anyways.
It's not a matter of what sounds better or cooler, but a matter of journalistic integrity. If people go around intentionally using terms they know full well aren't provided by official sources, other people unaware of the terms' unofficial nature could see the terms being used and mistaken them as something factual instead of a fan's preference of convenience and/or simplicity.
If I wanted to call the nameless Insecticon who appeared in ROTF by the name of "Buzzkill" because I liked the sound of that name, those not as familiar with the character or not knowing that I'd be using an unofficial name could think I was serious about that being his name and might take me seriously enough to think that that is his name, when there's nothing official to support it as it'd be just my own fanmade nickname for the guy.
I wouldn't want to impose any sort of confusion such as that upon anyone, and I'd hope others such as yourself would feel the same.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
