The 2021 Ford Bronco’s Best Off-Road Version Won’t Offer a Stick

Ford is charity a far-reaching array of suoer-cool off-roading facilities on the new Bronco. One of a coolest is the seven-speed primer transmission, that has a special low-speed crawler gear; another is a Sasquatch Package, that offers Bilstein shocks, 35-inch tires and locking front and back axles. Pairing those dual options together feels like a apparent off-roader fan play, right?

But there’s one slight problem: we can’t. Ford will offer a Sasquatch Package with a smaller turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that has a discretionary hang shift, as good as a incomparable twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 that comes exclusively with a 10-speed automatic. But according to Ford, we can’t get a package with a primer transmission. Not yet, during least.

Fortunately, a doorway might not be wholly shut. In his Twitter post per a stick-and-Sasquatch paring, Ford North America Product Communications manager Mike Levine remarkable that a Blue Oval is “open to feedback” — that suggests not charity a Sasquatch Package with a hang was a choice, not an inflexible technical separator a way, say, charity a primer on a effusive Cadillac CTS-V was. If they get adequate feedback from buyers, they might revisit a matter. (Mr. Levine is really active on Twitter, should we like to summary him about it.)

Why didn’t Ford offer these dual together? We’re guessing they didn’t consider there would be most direct for it. Most of a buyers plunking down to bucket adult their Bronco with a Sasquatch package are substantially going to opt for a some-more absolute V6 with a 10-speed automatic. Even with a old-school Wrangler, a primer take rate is about 10 percent. And when Jeep gave enthusiasts a diesel they’ve prolonged craved, they didn’t worry adding a stick.
