Oh, the joys of manual gearboxes. Don’t we all feel compelled to adore them so much? Although, cars and trucks with stick shifts are definitely on their way out. This trend isn’t new, but it’s becoming more popular with each new model. There are very few new vehicles and trucks that still come with “standard shift” as a standard feature. Even though the manual transmission’s future seems bleak, there are still a few holdouts. So, does Ford have any 2021 model year manual vehicles? Read this blog by Akins Ford to learn all about the manual transmission vehicle by Ford for 2021. After that, you can check out our new Ford inventory here in Winder, GA!

What is a stick shift?

Stick shifts are vehicles that have a manual or conventional gearbox. The driver shifts gear manually with a stick shift as they accelerate and decelerate their car. This shift lever is located on the center console and is linked to the transmission by a linkage.

In addition to a stick shift, a manual transmission necessitates the usage of a clutch pedal, which is situated to the left of the brake pedal. The clutch mechanism between the engine and the gearbox is disengaged when the clutch pedal is depressed. When you are pressing down on the clutch pedal, power is cut off from the engine to the gearbox. This allows you to change gears.

The manual transmission is only available with the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. There are expected to be around 18,700 2021 Ford Bronco SUVs with a third pedal kicking up dust on the trail, with a stick-shift accounting for 15% of total Bronco orders. The fact that the 2021 Ford Bronco came with a 7-speed manual transmission instantly piqued the off-road enthusiast’s interest.
