Can you create a poll to see how many people were wanting a mid or high package with a manual transmission? It would be nice to see the numbers.
Or how many people would have gotten manual transmission if they could get the 2.7L engine. I personally wanted that combination more than the packages.

I’m sure a lot would have, but the difference here is there is zero reason mechanically that they couldn’t offer this to us, unlike the manual/2.7 combo.

On a badlands, but what about the rest of the trims?
Well, obviously you can't with the Wildtrack because it's automatic transmission only.

But you do ask a good question, now I'm curious. I'm going to check it out.

Could be a glitch, it's not charging for the automatic transmission upgrade

I'm glad you started this thread and I hope Ford is paying attention... they're going to price me out forcing me to go up to a Badlands to get a manual with mid and I was willing to continue to be patient with their shenanigans, but if they don't fix it, I'm now willing to walk away.

This is unacceptable. Did they roll out a fucked up B&P just because there was so much complaint about it? Are the complainers happy now?

I landed on Bronco because Mini is doing away with manual transmissions in the largest models, which I require. Not ready to give up on manual transmissions yet...did that once and went back to it.
Automatic on Countryman JCW 2020 is fantastic!

I'm sure it is a great automatic transmission. I've also been told that the Ford/GM 10 speed automatic is a great automatic transmission. A great automatic transmission is not a replacement for a manual transmission in my world. I want what I want.

Yep, as soon as I saw the screenshot regarding Badland requirement I started pricing Manny Tacomas/Gladiators. I'm not canceling my 2nd day reservation yet, but I'm pretty close. There's too many "small" problems mounting up. It feels like they should've gone w/ a MY '22 release (late fall 21). That's one big miss instead of ton of small ones (no ManSquatch/yes ManSquatch, no white tops/wait on color tops, late availability items galore, etc)
