The Internet may love the manual gearbox, but the take rate when it comes to actually purchasing a car is gradually decreasing and in many cars, it’s usually a single-digit figure.

It’s the main reason why the three-pedal setup is slowly but surely dying, although some automakers are trying to save the manual by continuing to put a stick shift into their cars.

When Ford brought back the Bronco, enthusiasts were happy to see a seven-speed manual transmission with crawler gear. However, a closer look at the specs sheet shows you can only have it with the smaller 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and you can’t get the clutch pedal with the Sasquatch Package. While Ford spokesman Mike Levine said the company is “open to feedback for those that feel otherwise” regarding the auto-only Sasquatch, for the time being, the manual has limited availability.
