Here’s how the 2021 Ford Bronco’s crawler gear works

The 2021 Ford Bronco gets its off-road prowess in part from an available crawler gear. But why is that feature such a big deal, and how does it work? Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained has the details.

Denoted by a “C” on the Bronco’s manual-transmission shift pattern, the crawler gear is a first gear with an even higher ratio, Fenske said. In the Bronco, the crawler gear has a ratio of 6.588:1, compared to 4.283:1 for first gear. That allows for more wheel torque, albeit with a lower top speed. They don’t call it a crawler gear for nothing.

As with any four-wheel drive vehicle, that effect is amplified by the gearing of driveline components. The more aggressive of the Bronco’s two available transfer cases offers a low range of 3:06:1, while the most aggressive option for the rear differential on manual-transmission Broncos is a final drive of 4.7:1, on

The Fastest Production Cars in the World

We’re here to focus on the cream of the crop, however, including only the very fastest production cars made today. To qualify, a car must be road-legal, and at least 25 units must be built or planned. If you think you’ve detected an omission, be sure to read to the bottom of the list to see our honorable mentions.

2020 McLaren Senna: 208 MPH

While buyers have already spoken for all examples of the awe-inspiring McLaren Senna, the British manufacturer hasn’t yet completed the planned run of 500 units. Due to massive aero effects, it ranks lower on the list than the “regular” 720S on which it is based.

Weighing just about 3,000 pounds, the Senna accelerates to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.7 seconds and attains its 208-mph top speed thanks to its 789-horsepower, 4.0-liter twin-turbo
