They listened to us with mansquatch, but made it two door only. It seems ford listening to its customers is a bit of a "monkey's paw" scenario.

So they might offer V6 manual, but only in a big bend/6 door/2" lowering kit model

Mansquatch is definitely not 2 doors only, unless you're talking base, and manual was never available on 4dr base.

I wish that Foard had just put the mustang drive trains in the bronco, eight and four cylinders both with manuals and automatics
I mean thats what the old bronco did originally, eventually. Also thats what the aftermarket did with the ranger based broncoII. Maybe history will repeat itself.

I actually think inline 2.3 is a pretty decent engine for the 2dr. But still. There'll be lots of unhappy 2.3 manual owners if Ford suddenly decides to drop a V6 manual.

Why would you want the V-8? In the Ranger it is slower than the 2 V-6's. I saw where the 6's beat it in a towing test. More weight, more fuel worse handling but is does sound good.
No 6 banger ever beat godzilla!
F-150 0-60
5.0 6.9 sec
3.5 6.3 sec
2.7 6.1 sec 120 HP per L - most motors would be happy for 100
Those numbers are wrong. Maybe your mixing drivetrains and bodystyles:unsure:

The only issue that I have with the 2.3L is that it's DI only. If it would have been DI & PI (like the 2.7L), I'd ordered a MT Bronco already, but with that said, I REAILLY want a 2.7L MT 2D Badlands!

Come On @Ford Motor Company, at least give us the 2.7L MT in the 2D Squash!!!!!! You know, Like The Original Bronco, you could get the big engine and MT.

Week in 2.3L/7mt is rad. It’s plenty quick for what this is. People comparing 0-60 to anything with under 400lbs of wheel tire are doing physics a disservice

I wouldn't be unhappy at all, but I would be taking a loss when I traded in on a v6 manual :p

Well that is disappointing. Somehow got it in my head that you could. That was going to be my "Save money without sacrificing capability" build
