According to, Alternators Sideswipe's design was originally intended for Tracks.

G1 Tracks turns into a Chevy Corvette.

ROTF Sideswipe turns into a Chevy Corvette.

One shall stand; one shall fall; and the one who stands shall help the one who falls to stand once again.

The simpler the word, the harder to trademark. Sideswipe (one word) is much less likely to correspond to a toy than Tracks.

Armada Hot Shot would have been called Bumblebee if it weren't for some sort of Buzzin' Bumblebee Baby Swing.
