    Supposedly I'll be able to build, price, and order my 2021 4 door Badlands Bronco this month. I've wanted the 2.3 with manual trans but have heard a lot of negative things about that particular motor (mostly carbon build up) and now I'm considering the 2.7.

    Which would you choose and why? We had a 3.5 ecoboost expedition and loved it. If the carbon issues with the 2.3 are accurate, are there ways to prevent it?

    I never had any issues with the 2.3 I had. I like it as an engine. If I were buying an auto Bronco I would got for the 2.7. It has a ton of power potential.

    2.7 is a beast.
