** For ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Megatron adopts a new alternate mode that certainly fits this trope. A heavily modified Mack tanker truck littered with spikes and chains, it would fit right in on the set of ''Mad Max''.
** In ''Age of Extinction'', the KSI corporation is attempting to replace Optimus with a superior man-made drone called Galvatron. About the only aspect of Optimus that KSI successfully copies for Galvatron is his alt mode, a sleek gray cab-over semi that contrasts nicely with the boxy, rusted-out cab-over that Optimus starts the movie disguised as.

as. [[spoiler:And it probably only happened because [[BackFromTheDead Megatron]] was willing to let them copy that much]].

* ''Literature/{{Demon Road}}: American Monsters'' has Amber and Milo running from a Peterbilt, also a demonic symbiote like the Charger. Demoriel, the Whispering Demon, makes deals with those who have conveyances, such as cars in the modern age; Milo is wanted by Demoriel because he welched on his [[DealWithTheDevil deal]], and the Peterbilt's driver is another one of his. He even picks up a young girl they met earlier and breaks her mind, trying to use her to kill Amber.

* The roads into [[http://ravensblight.com/index.html Ravensblight]] are haunted by two rigs; the [[http://ravensblight.com/PhantomSemi.html Phantom Semi]] runs people off the road, honks and disappears, less like a villain than a child playing who thinks he's not hurting anyone but is too immature to see that that isn't true, and an [[http://ravensblight.com/GhostTruck.html old truck]] which looks suspiciously like the one from ''Film/{{Duel}}'', but is driven by a helpful person named Chester Floyd, whose face cannot be seen. When you mention who gave you a lift at the gas station he drops you at, you suddenly expect the clerk to say "worst accident I ever did..." but, no, it's [[SubvertedTrope "Chester, Yeah he was just in here. Came in for some Cheesy Yums."]] Double subverted when you mention your apprehension and he responds "Dead? Oh, yeah, he's dead all right, worst accident I ever did see... Still, he comes in here every so often for some Cheesy Yums. He loves those things. Don't see how he eats 'em, though; not havin' a head and all..."

* The truck from ''Film/{{Duel}}'' is a humongous (compared to the Plymouth Valiant it's chasing) 1955 "Needlenose" Peterbilt 281, CoveredInGunge, [[BattleTrophy with license plates hanging from its front grill]].

* While gun artillery has moved on to [[TanksButNoTanks tank-like]] armored vehicles, rocket and missile artillery is still very clearly truck-like. Take, for example, the [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ef/MLRS_05.jpg M270 MLRS]], which looks for all the world like an weaponized, tracked dump truck.
