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?

F-150 STX starts at $35,615
F-250 STX starts at $34,910
F-350 STX starts at $36,080

Not bad considering that the SuperCrew configurations on F-150 starts at around $33,055. I personally don't think the parts are worth it but some might.

That's an extra $2,000 which is not worth it and you can probably Diy most of the accessory modes yourself for a lot less.
nice try but if that was really the case then car companies wouldn't be offering them. how many people really have the time and tools to go about piecing together everything that amounts to something equivalent? Not many. Plus often you save a bit of money buying it as a package than individually... much like many other industries

The package is great for those who aren't diy savy but anyone who has the tools and knowledge can probably do those mods for less. blacked out pieces can easily be done, same with cosmetic cahnges.

Sometimes it definitely is worth paying the extra 2 grand if it'll save you a load of time and what not. From what's listed that'll be added, 2k isn't really much when you look at it. 20inch wheels alone would end up costing you more than 2 grand.

but what's the point?
it's the whole incentive to get a package, save you time and a little bit of money.
just look at every other time something, aside from whats sold in the automotive world, was sold packaged vs you individually buying things in that package.
