Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn is responding to customers who have made reservations to buy its three new Bronco models by expanding the availability of its high-performance off-road Sasquatch package.
The automaker is making the package available to buyers of two- and four-door Bronco models with a 7-speed manual transmission. They will be available in late 2021. Sasquatch Broncos with automatic gearboxes will be available in the spring of 2021.
“The Bronco community spoke and we heard them,” says Mark Grueber, Ford Bronco consumer marketing manager. “Our team moved quickly to add Sasquatch with a manual transmission – another example of our focus on giving customers the best possible off-road vehicles and accessories that we can.”
The increased availability of the Sasquatch package also makes the Ford Bronco the only 4×4 with a 7-speed manual and 35-inch off-road tires in its class.
Bronco is making off-road capability a priority across every two- and four-door trim level with the available Sasquatch package.
Checking the Sasquatch box adds 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires mounted to 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, Dana front and rear electronic locking axles with 4.7:1 final drive ratio, and high-clearance suspension with a nearly two-inch wider track, position-sensitive Bilstein shocks, and wider fender flares.
Sasquatch package will be available across the lineup, including base, Big Bend, Black Diamond Outer Banks, and Badlands. It is standard on Bronco Wildtrak and First Edition models, while the Badlands series with available Sasquatch package and standard semi-active hydraulic front stabilizer bar disconnect results in the ultimate Bronco rock crawler.
“Capability is always a priority, and pairing Sasquatch with a manual transmission and available advanced 4×4 system gives it a maximum crawl ratio of 94.75:1, providing even more off-road capability across the line-up,” says Dave Pericak, global director of Ford icons.
The Bronco two- and four-door build and price site will go live in October. Enthusiasts will be able to virtually create their ideal models and compare pricing for option groups. Reservation holders can create their off-road machine and print and save the information for ordering, which will begin in December.
