Does the 2021 Ford Bronco Have a Manual Transmission?
Ford has been making automatic transmissions standard on many of its most popular vehicles, and that leaves many fans to wonder if the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco will feature a manual transmission when it arrives at Akins Ford this summer? Our magic 8-ball says, “It is decidedly so.”
Class-Exclusive 7-Speed Manual Transmission
That’s right, purists can lie down their pitchforks, as the 2021 Ford Bronco will have a manual transmission for its debut year. The Bronco’s class-exclusive 7-speed manual transmission is entirely new, making it now one of only three Ford vehicles on today’s market with a manual transmission. The other two manual-endowed entries from the stable are Mustangs.
Ford says the manual will provide maximum low-speed rock-climbing capability when paired with the available advanced 4×4 system with automatic on-demand engagement. The duo makes for a class-leading crawler-gear ratio of 94.75:1. Broncos equipped with the standard manual will also include a Granny Gear and Crank in Gear function, plus a Hill Descent Control™ feature that continually adjusts braking pressure to help control slippage and maintain a constant speed while traveling down a steep slope. The one caveat is that the 7-speed manual transmission is only available on Bronco 2-Door models with Part Time Selectable Engagement and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® inline-4 engine.
