All complete sets of Ford Bronco can get manual transmission

All complete sets of Ford Bronco can get manual transmission

The petition for a widely available manual transmission for the 2021 Ford Bronco has so far been signed by about 4,300 people.

On the Internet, many may say that they like a manual transmission, but when it comes to actually buying a car, the number of people wanting to have three pedals drops dramatically, sometimes to a few. This is the main reason the manual transmission setup is slowly but surely dying, although some automakers are trying to keep the manual transmission intact by continuing to fit the gear lever into their cars.

When Ford revived the Bronco, fans were happy to see a 7-speed manual transmission with a downshift. A closer look at the specs, however, reveals that it can only be obtained with the smaller 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and is not available with the Sasquatch package. Ford spokesman Mike Levin, meanwhile, said the company is “open to feedback from those who think otherwise” regarding the Sasquatch, which is only for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission.

A new petition, filed three weeks ago, aims to convince Ford to offer manual transmissions across the entire vehicle lineup. So far, almost 4,300 people have signed it up in the hope that they will be able to shift gears on their own in Bronco equipped with the Sasquatch package and / or versions equipped with the more powerful 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine.

As a reminder, the 2021 Ford Bronco is available in a total of six trims, including the sold-out First Edition. The 7-speed manual transmission can only be ordered with Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond and Badlands variants. The Outer Banks, Wildtrack and First Edition trims offer an exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission with Trail Control, which is essentially a cruise control system for slow, cross-country driving.
