2.3L Manual Sasquatch Package 2021 Bronco 1.jpg


TESTING UNDERWAY FOR SASQUATCH PACKAGE WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSION

For months, Bronco fans, enthusiasts, and future customers have been very vocal about their desire for the Sasquatch package to be available with the 2.3L engine and manual transmission. Well, we have some good news…

Bronco Nation was on the ground for durability testing in Moab, UT several weeks ago where a 2.3L manual Badlands Bronco was used. We were able to ride in that Bronco, but at the time it was running on 33-in., non-Sasquatch tires. Since then, Bronco Nation has obtained additional photos of this same testing unit now equipped with 35-in. tires and what appears to be the Sasquatch package. We are able to confirm that it is the same unit based on the vehicle I.D. (Vehicle 301W412) number found on the yellow sticker at the top of the windshield.

In addition to the larger tires, new bead-lock wheels (right) now take the place of the multi-spoke wheels we saw on the 33inch tires (left). Furthermore, the fender flares have been removed on the Bronco that sports the larger tires and new wheels. With this information, our technical team has concluded that testing is underway for what we believe to be a manual option for the Sasquatch package.

The only missing piece to this elusive puzzle is timing. While we don’t have specifics on when this combination will be available, we are crossing our fingers for the 2021 model year!

Bronco fans have been particularly hopeful that the manual option would be offered on the Sasquatch package, and it seems they may get their wish! Does this news change your plans for ordering? Will you definitely be adding the Sasquatch package to your Bronco?

things are looking good for late availability, since my reservation number almost guarantees a 2022 delivery!
