The 2021 Bronco is finally here. Among all the packages and available options introduced today by Ford, one stands out to us: the Sasquatch package. An off-roading equipment upgrade meant to give the new SUV an edge off the pavement, it includes must-have items we don't think any Bronco should go without.
Select the Sasquatch package on your Bronco build, and you get a shorter 4.7:1 final drive ratio, position-sensitive Bilstein shocks, locking axles front and rear, 17-inch "beadlock-capable" wheels and a set of fat 35-inch mud-terrain tires. To help clear those tires, the option group also adds a suspension lift kit and higher-mounted fender flares.
Opting for the package means you get the shortest final-drive ratio available (the manual transmission Broncos get a 4.46:1 ratio from stock, while the automatic versions get a 3.73:1 ratio), and the biggest factory tire size possible—a five-inch increase over the base rubber diameter, to be exact.
The best part? The Sasquatch package is available on every single Bronco trim, and comes standard on both the Wildtrak and First Edition models. That means you can get all of the essential off-roading stuff you need right from the factory without having to upgrade to some ultra-expensive trim level just to get the fun bits, or having to take the time to upgrade a base version yourself. Ford knows its customers.
It's worth noting that while the Sasquatch package gives you a whole lot, it doesn't include the full suite of performance upgrades Ford has on offer for the Bronco. It's missing the heavy-duty bumpers, rock rails, bash plates, marine-grade vinyl seats, and rubberized washable floors from the Black Diamond trim, as well as the the front disconnecting sway bar in the Badlands trim. So if you want the ultimate factory Bronco off-roader, you're going to have to spend a bit more.
