It would seem the likelyhood of the manual being geared low for technical maneuvering is high.

I like the low first. I hope the reverse in the Bronco is lower, similar to what the jeep has.

I like the low first gear, but in that pattern 1 and 2 are really really close together (you don't have 2 on the line graph but it would be between reverse and 1st).

I feel like 2-7 would need to be shifted way up, then have 5th as your 1:1 and 2 overdrives. Maybe 2nd around 3:1, and shift everything up from there. 6th as like 0.85:1 and 7th as 0.6:1. That would give a really nice gear spread.

With the reveal being much closer than originally anticipated, I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for news of the manual transmission option. Will we get a manual as an option?! I don't think I can buy an automatic Bronco.
