Magnus: was the absolute leader of the Autobots and, at first, sole bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. Later, Autobots were appointed the rank of Supreme Commander without having the Matrix passed down to them.
Prime: The Autobot leader is normally refered to as "Prime" or a higher status. According to Optimus Prime "Prime`s are not made, their born"
Minor: The lowest of the top three of the Autobots ranking.
Lord High Protector: is a military title, and Megatron oversaw the armies of Cybertron
Prime: The civilian and spiritual leader of Cybertron
Emperor of Destruction: refers to the highest-ranking member of the Decepticon, Predacon or Vehicon military. The Emperor of Destruction is the Supreme Commander of the entire race, bowing to no higher authority.
Leader of the Decepticons: the Decepticon leader is the strongest and smartest of their ranks. Unlike the Autobots, whose leader is called a Prime, the Decepticon leader has no "official name".
The name of the newest Transformers has been revealed, by a security gaurd. Sentinel Prime, a name used by both the famous predecessor of Optimus Prime who was killed by Megatron starting the war (War for Cybertron) and a member of the Cybertronian elite gaurd (Transformers Animated)
However with no official confirmation, unless you count a security gaurds words as official, there is still no proof that the firetruck is named Sentinel Prime.

Duhamel, who plays Major William Lennox, a member of the United States Army Rangers, is seen protecting LaBeouf's stunt double as a huge explosion blows member of his team into the air and nearly claims Sam's life.
With the plot of the film slowly unravelling i believe this to be an attack from the Rransformers resistance groups who are well aware that Sam is the cause of the Transformers being on Earth thanks to the events of "Revenge Of The Fallen" and would probably want to kill him, in order to make the Transformers leave.
Bumblebee is voiced by Mark Ryan
Bumblebee is one of Optimus Prime's most trusted lieutenants. Although he is not the strongest or most powerful of the Autobots, Bumblebee more than makes up for this with a bottomless well of luck, determination and bravery. He would gladly give his life to protect others and stop the Decepticons.
Badly damaged in battle, Bumblebee lost the ability to speak verbally, though he can still communicate over inter-Autobot frequencies.
Now Bumblbee is the friend and protector of Sam Witwicky.
Motormaster roared to life on June 23rd 2009 and was on display for a week at the Abingdon Cinemall—just in time for the debut of the much-anticipated second Transformers movie, “Revenge of the Fallen.”
Check him out on his offical site!

"Supposedly, we also will be getting a look at Unicron which if done right, will be phenomenal"
Also Transformers 3 has been listed as number 10 in the top 10 most anticipated 2011 sequels on this website. Suprisingly this mentions preview footage of Unicron (Possibly from the ROTF extra`s)

A new transformers human charecter has been revealed. This time it is Alan Tudyk who has revealed a few details about his new Transformers 3 role:
"John Turturro’s character, who has been in the other two movies, Agent Simmons. I’m a fellow agent of his that is sort of his assistant and weapons expert, computer hacker, cyber sleuth"
Soundwave also has a slightly updated head with his visor proving to be retractable as many people theorised.
Two video`s also show the new Decepticon (Below)
To further add to this mystery a beefed up truck has been spotted on set with its hood ornament hidden. I personally believe this truck to be the Wrecker version of Ultra Magnus.
"Later on, during Shockwave's reign on Cybertron, the Wreckers were a small but elite task force of Autobots dedicated to keeping the peace wherever (and however) necessary" - Transformers wiki
This group of Wreckers was led by Ultra Magnus and included:
