Why do some consumers prefer a manual Ford Bronco?MORE: Is the Ford Bronco Better Than the Jeep Wrangler?One of the main reasons why manual transmissions haven’t disappeared completely is because they offer a lot more control of the car. Controlling when and how you shift gears can be important in complex driving scenarios, hence why sports cars and off-roaders tend to be manual. Driving stick isn’t an easy skill to master, but it helps you gain a noticeable amount of dexterity.This is something Bronco owners may be looking to take advantage of. The car itself is heavily advertised as a potential off-roading vehicle, and their two-door model is the more popular manual pick.Though some car enthusiasts may simply enjoy driving stick on city streets, the manual option has a practical application for buyers looking for some outdoor fun.
How to pair the Bronco Sasquatch with the manual transmission
To get the 2022 Ford Bronco Sasquatch package with a manual transmission, then you need to pair it with the Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, or Badlands trim. This excludes the Out Banks and Wildtrak options, according to The Drive. But the package is standard on the Wildtrak.
The off-road package can only be paired with the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. It provides 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty of power. However, the 2.7-liter V6 engine pumps out 330 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque.
Within about two weeks, the 2022 model-year Build & Price tool and ordering system will be available. If you’ve signed up for updates, then Ford will email you when it goes lives. Also, 2022 models are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2022.
If you want the Bronco Sasquatch with the manual transmission, delivery timing will depend on a few different things. For example, your reservation time stop, vehicle model and configuration, part availability, and the amount of Bronco models your dealership receives could impact your waiting time.
Unless you’ve been living under an especially large and virulent rock, you’ll know the new Ford Bronco has captured the attention of off-road gearheads from Kamloops to Kapuskasing. At its launch, certain corners of the internet noticed the burly Sasquatch package was not able to be paired with the truck’s 7-speed manual transmission. Ford promised to rectify that situation, and did so this week.
News about this addition for the Ford lineup appeared on Wednesday and promptly got lost in the flood of coverage coming out of this year’s L.A. Auto Show. In fact, it was tweeted by none other than Ford top brass Jim Farley; it’s been confirmed by our friends at Ford of Canada that we will be able to spec this combination as well, no matter what the build-and-price tool says as of this writing.

The vaunted Sasquatch package adds a wealth of off-road gear like jumbo tires, beadlock-capable wheels, electronic locking front and rear diffs, plus Bilstein dampers and a slight lift. It also adds several thousand dollars to the Bronco’s sticker price depending on which trim level one is building.
