In the constant search for undiscovered customer needs, Ford is creating a new trim level to provide both the 2017 F-150 and Super Duty pickup trucks with some new territory in the form of the STX Appearance Package, a new value-packed trim.
Previously an option package and slotting in between the base-level XL and well-equipped XLT, the F-150 STX is available in SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations with three engine choices: the 2.7-liter or 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost, or the 5.0-liter V-8. The new F-150 trim comes equipped with 20-inch aluminum wheels, a black grille, body-colored front and rear bumpers, privacy glass, unique cloth seats with lumbar support, decals and fog lamps.
The Super Duty STX, available in all cab configurations with both V-8 gas and diesel engine options, will get a chrome grille, chrome-accented front and rear bumpers, STX badging, unique aluminum wheels and an upgraded entertainment system.
Interestingly, the F-150 and F-350 (single rear-wheel) STX will start at less than $37,000, while the F-250 Super Duty STX lists right around $36,000. Look for more information about the new pickup when we publish our "2017 Ford Super Duty: First Drive" story shortly.
