The 2021 Ford Bronco has won over the hearts of both off-road enthusiasts and mall-crawlers alike. It's a genuinely beautiful blend of both on-road and off-road usability. The Ford Bronco has two engine options, a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 2.7L twin-turbo V6. If you choose the inline-four, you'll be rewarded with the option of a manual transmission. Not just a six-speed, it also offers a crawler gear! You'll find a "C" labeled on the stick shift. In this video, we'll learn about what crawler gears are, why they're implemented, and when they're useful. It all leads to the Ford Bronco's bonkers 94.75 crawl ratio! We'll be talking wheel torque, wheel forces, and wheel speeds - hope you enjoy!

    • Forgive me, I didn't think the grammar police were on patrol. I was more or less talking in a conversation format since this is a forum. Secondly, I'm not the only one who can tell the two are similar. A quick google search shows many people...
