Looks more like a Biotyranno from the Genesis line, with guns on its back.

Ken will also be appearing at Capitol City Comic Con in Austin, Tx this coming weekend where you can pick his brain about initial design choices for Grimlock and Lockdown. You can see the announcement on his blog.

This was based on a new version of Polaris RZR makes which reminds me of an angry little gorilla in that it is small but extremely tough with its performance/handling and styling. It was only fitting to make it into one. The transformation is fairly simple: the hood becomes the chest, the wheels become fists and shoulders, the fenders become muscle elements on the thigh and biceps areas, the trailing arms become femurs, the roll cage stays where it is. I figure this would be an Autobot.
This was an alternative to the red angry gorilla design but based on the same vehicle. It is loosely inspired by Demolishor. Trying to keep the same feeling as the gorilla but not so organic (more deception-feeling) so I made it into more of a small tank, armed to the teeth, with an all terrain attitude. For this complex transformation the wheels merge into one "track", the hood and face move into the center with the eyes hanging out on the side to see around the track, the rear fenders become rocket pods and the suspension becomes the inner structure.
This one is a new road-based vehicle that Polaris will release shortly. I tried to make this one contrast the other two by being faster-looking, lighter and using blade weapons. I think it could pass for a Deception or Autobot. The transformation is simple, the front rims become the blades on the hands, the hood becomes the chest, a rear vent feature becomes a hood, the funky drivetrain becomes the spine and "leg".

Yeah, more of this Hritz art, but not in Transformers. TF2 gave me more than I wanted of wheel bots and unicycle legs. Best part about TF4 was making all of the bots more humanoid on all sides.
Still, these would make great mech designs in like a Robotech movie or something.
