I’ve bought a new car with a manual every other year since 2009. Next year’s will likely either be a Bronco or a Gladiator, and leaning towards Bronco if I like how it drives in the metal. On the other hand, I could not care less about the Sasquatch package, I just want a base 2dr with a stick.

Except that the Badlands trim supposedly can be had with a manual, and that comes with both lockers.

It’s possible that both the manual trans and the differentials from the Sasquatch package require different length driveshafts. Which would then mean having to make a unique driveshaft for just that combination, and unique means expensive.

It’s like the small cars from 10 years ago or so, which are only interesting to drive with a stick, but if you want a stick, you get roll up windows, no A/C, radio delete and no carpeting.   “You can have a bit of fun with our car, but we will punish you for thinking of doing so.”

It’s more fun to some people, including me. Wheeling doesn’t need to be about optimization or ease-of-use. It’s an inherently illogical hobby, after all! Read more

Near as I understand, Sasquatch just means different diffs, wheels, and tires, right?  I would understand it if the transfercase was different as that would mean two different t-cases (no chance in hell it’s a divorced t-case), but if it’s just axles and tires, what’s the issue?  It seems completely arbitrary.

Honestly, it’s almost like they’re putting these out there to guarantee themselves a less than 1% take rate to give themselves backup to take to “the board” or whomever that they should never offer a manual transmission again. Read more

There’s no reason they can’t have a manual on the 2.7. Everyone talks about too much torque but there are manuals on vipers, corvettes, mustang GTs, and big fucking diesel trucks so I don’t want to hear how hard it is to make one that will work.

I can’t blame them though, when done right, the do look good, plus that Corolla looks so much better that what we got here in the States!

If you’re financially knowledgeable enough to find faults with Dave Ramsey’s financial advice, then you’re not the person he’s talking to. His show is for the people who ruin their lives with bad money decisions, not those people who can plan and do interest rate calculations. I don’t follow (most of) the things he Read more
