manual is going to make this a really fun ride regardless of the smaller 2.3. Looks like it accelerates pretty well and 300 hp is pretty decent. Even my old 85 Yota pickup with 22re was fun to drive with a manual and about 100 hp and just a bit more torque Lol.

Spent a lot of time shifting. More than I ever did when I had a manual. This confirms my choice of an automatic with the 2.7L
By the way he was driving, he was doing it for the sake of shifting coupled with editing made it excessive. Multiple times he'd slow down then accelerated hard up to the Bronco ahead of him.

I wouldn't use him as a baseline to judge the number of times you need to shift while driving "normally".

In my focus st, there was just a plastic tube that piped it into the cab from the engine bay. You can just yank it out or hook it back up if you wanted the noise again. Very easy but unfortunately there wasn’t a setting in the sync menu to disable it
Good to know. We have an ST and was wondering how this worked.

I got excited when I saw he did this video, he does the best POV style driving reviews.

Also got me more excited for my manual 2 door!

Damn it, that looks like so much fun. More fodder for the internal dialogue regarding (4 door auto) for practically or (2dr mansquatch) for FUN!! Wish I could just buy both.

One thing I noticed while he was driving, was the left arm just resting easily on the top of the door. He never mentioned it, but I believe other reviews have talked about that. I know it's a little thing, but it's the little things like that I enjoy seeing.

agreed, great observation. also noticed that he doesnt seem to have to reach far to shift.

in my jlur, i feel like the shifter is so far away from me. my arm is at full extension when i shift. and i have some pretty long noodle arms

This is the best video to date (IMO) that details the manual 6MT with Crawler Gear. FWIW - I think he does a very good job describing the character of various manual transmissions in different types of cars/trucks.

I am still not sure whether to get a Badlands with 33's or Big Bend with Sasquatch.....? Can't wait to drive one & I would not even consider the Bronco if it were not offered in a manual.

"...and well executed..." LMAO
