Ford Builds Expedition XL STX For Smaller Parties

Expedition for five

  • STX new base Expedition, five seats more cargo utility

  • Can tow up to 9,300 lbs when properly equipped


The latest offering from Ford might be the biggest two-row SUV you can buy. It’s the STX package for the 2021 Ford Expedition and it trades the third row for cargo space while still offering big-ute tow capabilities.

STX comes to the Expedition XL as a new base model, with seating for five and a US base price coming in $5 short of $50,000. With all that space and just five seats, Ford says it’s aimed at “families who lead an active lifestyle that requires the capability and space of a full-size SUV.” So smaller families who are going camping and are bringing their entire house with them. Or a large boat.

The Expedition STX offers 104.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row of seats, and though that’s unchanged from the eight-seat model, the flat floor and revised storage shelf with a new cargo management system should help owners better use the available space.

STX also adds a black five-bar grille and its own 18-inch alloys, as well as coming with Sync 3 infotainment. The 3.5L 375 hp EcoBoost V6 is standard, with an available trailer tow package that changes the rear differential, adds a trailer brake and larger radiator for 9,300 lbs towing on two-wheel drive models and 9,200 on 4x4s, with Ford calling both of those figures best in class.

The five-seat version is now the only XL-trim Expedition, so U.S. buyers needing all eight seats will need to step up to XLT, from $52,810.
