With regard to the trim level. Special Edition? Special Edition Luxury? Special Edition Sport? Just curious

I dont think Ford ever made any definitions for that nomenclature.

In regard to the Gen 4: LX is uber-base, SE is base, SES is standard, decently equipped, SEL is upper trim, "luxury".

My understanding:
SE - Special Edition
SES - Special Edition Sport
SEL - Special Edition Luxury
