Ironhide in the art picture.

Ironhide is one of the oldest and toughest Autobots, and has been on Optimus Prime's team for a long time. "They don't make them like they used to" is an apt description of Ironhide—he's yesterday's model, but he's built to last.

Gruff and ornery, he prefers actions to words, and dislikes talk for talk's sake. (He wouldn't enjoy being paired up with Bluestreak.) But though he may be rough around the edges, he's still optimistic and upbeat. The upside to being through more than your share of trouble means trouble ain't so big a scare anymore.

Ironhide's most distinctive ability is the water gun, a weapon which can generate and shoot a liquid of virtually any type. Liquid nitrogen is historically a favorite, but there have been acids, mortar, and more.

His alt-mode is a Nissan C20 Vanette.

After the Great War Ironhide became a Maximal with fellow Autobots Prowl and Silverbolt.

His beast mode is an Elephant. This was the same Ironhide who fought in the great war alongside Autobot commander Optimus Prime, we don't know. With Prowl and Silverbolt, he forms the body of the combiner warrior, Magnaboss, the suggested arch-enemy of the Predacon gestalt known as Tripredacus. He holds two clubs in robot mode which can also be used as his guns.
