2021 Ford Ranger STX Special Edition Price Reflects Serious Value

Liz Kim | Sep 24, 2020

Ford announced yet another new way for Ranger buyers to improve the appearance of and equipment in their trucks, and this time the automaker is targeting buyers on a budget. In exchange for just $995, you’ll be able to upgrade a 2021 Ford Ranger XL with the STX Special Edition option package.

Available for SuperCab and SuperCrew cab styles with 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive, the STX Special Edition Package adds a distinctive look to the base Ranger XL. However, it also requires the optional 101A Package and the STX Appearance Package, which means the least you’ll pay for a Ranger STX Special Edition SuperCab is about $28,750.

“STX has been a strong seller on the base Ranger, but we’ve heard from some customers who want even more style and more tech in their XL trucks,” said Chad Callander, Ranger marketing manager, in a statement. “STX Special Edition now gives those customers that added style with the added benefits of having a touchscreen with Sync 3 – at an affordable cost.”

The Ranger STX Special Edition includes 18-inch black painted wheels with machined-finished edges, silver-painted interior trim pieces, and dark-tinted privacy glass. More pertinently, you’ll find an 8-inch touchscreen Sync 3 infotainment system nestled into the dashboard, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone projection. Satellite radio and dual-zone automatic climate control are also included in the STX Special Edition Package. 

Ford says buyers can combine the STX Special Edition Package with the Ranger FX2 or FX4 Off-Road Packages, which include suspension modifications for greater performance when the pavement ends, and the real fun begins. Ford also recently introduced the Ranger Tremor Off-Road Package, which further burnishes the Ranger’s ability to clamber over boulders, but that’s not available with the new STX Special Edition Package.

Ford did not announce when the 2021 Ranger STX Special Edition Package will become available.
