Some more details on the upcoming 7-speed manual with an optional "crawler" low gear.

600Nm is 442ftlb of torque, more than we were expecting from the initial leak (405ftlb). The highest value listed is 800Nm which comes out to 590ftlb ... not sure if that is only with fewer gears, or just higher strength parts.

Awesome find. This is very promising. Even 442ft-lbs gives a lot more headroom for the ecoboost V6es. Plus, crawler gear on a 7 speed sounds perfect for the Bronco. Very exciting.

So @jjmtuttle was right? If so, we're also looking at 37" tires from factory and it's wider than the Ranger.

The gear spread on the Jeep 6-speed is 7.125, and the Ford 6-speed spread is 5.63.

A spread of 11 could give an impressive overdrive of .65 and still have a deeper granny gear (up to 7.15) than the current Jeep offering.

It begs the question that if the manual has so much potential for deep gearing, will the 10-speed automatic have a special Bronco gear set for comparable results as well? Will they be paired with a lower diff or transfer case ratio for street economy, or double down and match or exceed the competitions ratio for "crawling"?

I was hoping to tune the 2.7 EcoBoost which likely puts the torque over the rating but I would think it would probably roast the clutch before damaging the transmission so I’m sure Lots of people will push it to the limit and we will know what the real limits are if we get a manual option.

Happens to be just enough to handle Ford's 3.0L V6 diesel. 440ftlb and 250hp.

It was implied there was a larger v6 coming. The diesel with a manual (Jeep can't use theirs with a manual, the torque is too much) and that kind of deep gearing could be a very interesting combo. Put it in a 2-door and Jeep is one-upped at their own game again.

At least we know the manual tranny will hold up when you armor the Bronco up to 8800lb or try to pull a 22000lb trailer.

Those figures and the 590lbft make this sound like it belongs in the Superduty Tremor too ...
