Ford has announced that a new STX Appearance Package is going to be available for their F-series, so we can safely assume that the Diesel F-150 will have the optional trim as well.
For anyone who thinks the XL trim level is a bit lacking but doesn’t want to shell out the big bucks for the XLT may find a happy middle ground in the STX. Previously, this trim was unavailable for the Super Duty pickups and it hasn’t made an appearance in the F-150s since it switched to aluminum. Now, it has returned to the F-150 and Ford’s beefier pickups for 2017.
Most of the trim features are added for aesthetics; 20-inch aluminum wheels, black grille, body-colored bumper and front facia, privacy glass, special black cloth seats with lumbar support, decals and fog lamps. The one functional feature we’ll get with the trim is Ford’s new Sync 3 infotainment system paired with an 8 inch screen.
If someone opts for the Super Duty STX, they’ll be getting a few extra features including a chrome grille and step bumpers, unique wheels, exterior fender vent badges, steering-wheel mounted cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo with a CD player.
The Diesel F-150 STX will most likely not be getting the Super Duty perks but the regular trim is still extensive. Does the STX trim interest anyone?
