A petition was started on the website change.org to implore Ford to include the seven-speed manual transmission on all engines, all trims and all packages. As of now, the seven-speed manual transmission is only available on the 4-cylinder 2.3-liter engine and not available on the popular Sasquatch trim.
Here’s what the petition, started by someone named Kevin Flynn says:
“Off-road enthusiasts everywhere were thrilled with Ford’s new Bronco unveiling – the pre-order website crashed and the First Edition version sold out within hours. Ford truly knocked it out of the park with features and design that calls on the decades of heritage.
However, many people have been shocked to find out that the touted 7-speed manual transmission option is NOT available with the off-road Sasquatch package OR the higher output 2.7 V6 engine. You can only get the manual transmission with the 4 cylinder without Sasquatch package.
We believe Ford is missing an opportunity to both honor the heritage of the vehicle and to also give enthusiasts what they want. Ford should offer the manual transmission with any combination of engines or packages. Ford has said they are open to the community’s feedback, and this is our feedback: save the manuals!”
The petition is available here to sign.
