Source Says 2020 Ford Bronco May Get Getrag 7-Speed Manual Transmission
Enthusiasts rejoice, the 2020 Ford Bronco may get a 7-speed manual transmission, according to a source who spoke with Jalopnik.
The new transmission developed by Getrag, would be dubbed the MT-88 — likely to be paired with Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
As Jalopnik pointed out, Getrag has posted a spec page on its website, detailing its 6/7MTI550 transmission — a six or seven-speed manual gearbox that is rated for 405 lb-ft of torque. These specs would make it a good match for the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine’s current rating of 400 lb-ft. Also apropos is the spec page which shows a date of 2021 as well as the capability for use in all-wheel-drive applications such as the 2020 Ford Bronco.
