Sasquatch Broncos Get Manual Transmission After All

7MT and 35-inch tires for manual Bronco Sasquatch, available on all trims

  • Ford listened to the internet, added MT Squatch pack

  • Offers a 94.75:1 crawl ratio


Answering the call of the wild, or, more accurately, the call of the internet and reservation holder, Ford is adding what the company’s communication boss calls the Mansquatch to the Ford Bronco. And no, that’s not some needlessly gendered truck trim, it’s the announcement that the seven-speed stick will be offered on the Sasquatch package after all.

“The Bronco community spoke and we heard them,” said Mark Grueber, Ford Bronco consumer marketing manager. “Our team moved quickly to add Sasquatch with a manual transmission – another example of our focus on giving customers the best possible off-road vehicles and accessories that we can.”

The Sasquatch package was the most hard-core off-road package for the Bronco, available on every trim level and standard on Wildtrack. Checking that box adds 35-inch Goodyear Mud Terrain tires on bead-lock-capable 17-inch wheels. It also came with Dana electronic locking axles front and back with a 4.7:1 final drive ratio. Finally, a high-clearance suspension, two-inch wider track, position-sensitive Bilstein dampers, and wider fender flares combined to make this the off-roader Bronco package of choice. With the manual box, it gives the Sasquatch Broncos a 94.75:1 crawl ratio, letting it put along on a trail at sub-walking speeds, even if you need loads of throttle.

Other buyers noted that there was only one trim option that gave buyers the stick and larger 12-inch screen, and this greatly increases the number of configurations with both of those features.

Confirmed for Canada and the US, the Mansquatch is set to arrive in late 2021.
