I have owned a 06 black single cab STX about four years now and I noticed that there wasnt many of these trucks for sale online and I have only noticed two more on the road in my area, and both of those were extended cabs. I called Ford and the lady told me that there were only somewhere between 1400 and 1500 STX Rangers produced in 2006. Shouldnt this series of Rangers be classified as Rare ?

regular cab, yes. ext, no
What is your definition of rare? I owned an ext. cab 2006 STX, and I think I saw a production figure online that listed under 8,000 built. If the Ranger nameplate sold 30 - 40,000 that year, and less than 25% were the STX, then wouldn't that qualify as being rare? I admit that I have only seen two ext. cab STX's in my area and never a single cab, but anytime less than 10,000 of a particular vehicle or accessory is made, then according to my definition of rare, then yes you have a rare vehicle.

Only saw one other one for sale but it was an 07

Unless there is a demand for building clones... which frankly there never will be much of for a Ranger package.

I think I have only seen two or three newer STX's with the different front bumper and the Mazda bed... I would say they are far from common.

Far from common here also. Only seen the one I bought in all my Ranger years. Could be one of them things where your area of the country has a lot to do with it.
Mine had nice bucket seats, carbon fiber dash but rubber floor, should have kept it. 3.0L with manual.

I emailed Ford and a nice lady called me the next day. She gave me the exact number of STX Rangers produced and sold in 2006. I wrote the number down but I have misplaced it, it was under 1500.

My friend has a blue single cab '06 STX with the 3.0 auto. Cool truck, wired up an aftermarket stereo in it.

Not exactly RARE, but def not common to see one. I wasnt a fan of the front bumper, although I do admit it looks pretty good on that red single cab a few posts up. I love the interior on mine, the rubber floor is especially handy. Stock stereo sounds quite good too..

When I bought it.


Now.
