Official: Ford Bronco Sasquatch Package Will Now Offer A Manual

Off-Road / Comments

Your prayers have been answered.

The 2021 Ford Bronco will offer an off-road Sasquatch Package, which adds tons of equipment, including 35-inch tires, locking differentials, Trail Control, a 4.7 final drive ratio, and raised suspension. Off-road enthusiasts should love this option, but when Ford announced that it could not be combined with the seven-speed manual transmission, the internet went berserk. Bronco fans quickly created an online petition for Ford to offer the Sasquatch Package with the manual.

While a noble effort, we didn't think Ford would listen, since internet demands rarely mirror shopper's real-world buying habits. Well, we were quickly proven wrong as several Bronco prototypes were spotted with the Sasquatch Package and a manual gearbox. Now, Ford confirms that it will offer the package with a seven-speed manual option.

"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."

As planned, the Sasquatch Package is available on all trim levels, including the base model. Buyers can now order their two-door or four-door Bronco in Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond Outer Banks, and Badlands trim levels with the Sasquatch Package and check the box for a seven-speed manual transmission with a low-speed crawler gear.

The package already comes standard on the Wildtrak and First Edition trims, while the Badlands also includes a standard semi-active hydraulic front stabilizer bar disconnect for improved rock-crawling capability.

"Capability is always a priority, and pairing Sasquatch with a manual transmission and available advanced 4x4 system gives it a maximum crawl ratio of 94.75:1, providing even more off-road capability across the line-up," said Dave Pericak, Ford icons global director.

Ford says the 2021 Bronco will go on sale in Spring 2021 with manual Sasquatch models available later in the year.
