New Configurations for 2014 F-150 STX


Ford is expanding the number of cab options on its popular STX trim package; it will now include the four-door full-size SuperCrew with a choice of either the 3.7-liter V-6 (only 4x2) or the 5.0-liter V-8 engine (4x2 or 4x4) options for 2014. The STX package fits in between the base XL and midlevel XLT packages, but was previously only offered in regular and SuperCab models; additionally, STX will get a Sport Package option as well.

Base-model STX regular cab 4x2 models will start at less than $30,000 (all prices include destination), but the new V-6 SuperCrew (with an EPA fuel economy rating of 17/23 mpg city/highway) will start at $34,240, and the 5.0-liter V-8 SuperCrew (offering 9,500 pounds of towing capacity) will start at $38,665. Previously, no SuperCrew STX models were offered.

This announcement is part of a strategy Ford is undertaking to offer more value-driven packages with more engines, wheelbases and cab configurations than any other competitor to take advantage of surging sales of full-size pickup trucks. For the first half of this year, pickup sales are up almost 25 percent when compared to 2012, about double the auto industry as a whole.

Among other standard features, the STX SuperCrew will have power doors and mirrors, a perimeter alarm, 17-inch aluminum wheels, cruise control, 40/20/40 front cloth seats, driver's adjustable lumbar, air conditioning, AdvanceTrac and more.

The new STX Sport Package adds 20-inch wheels, 275/55 tires, black billet grille, body-color grille surround, black running boards, a center console on SuperCab and SuperCrew models, box decals and more.

F150_STX 2 II


Great idea , a 3.7 v6 supercrew stx . That will be a great Truck for the wife . Nice going ford .

Best Track,hands down!

So 35K for a new truck that is basic. Makes the Nissan frontier crew cab that is 8K less a lot more appealing. If one should need to pull a light trailer it is rated around the same 6,oo Lbs as the F150 with the 3.7L. At least the fronty has a back up camera and a touch screen radio.

Still doesn't have a Ram box!


The Ford brand has had 92 recalls since 2009, substantially higher than the next highest brands — Chevrolet, at 70, and Toyota, at 68, a search of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration database reveals. Of course, such a search doesn't take into account the severity of individual recalls or that the Ford nameplate is part of the larger Ford Motor. When recalls in its various divisions are added up, General Motors outpaces Ford on recalls overall.





More trims will equal more sales.

I guess I am still not Ford's target F150 market--screw the 5.0, I want the most powerful engine available in the lowest trim package. You can't get a 6.2L in an XL.

When I bought my Tundra, you could get the 5.7L in a stripper model. I don't know if you still can or not.

I would still like a diesel over the biggest V8--but I don't want to have to pay anything extra.

LOL $35k for a basic crew cab. Ridiculous. Where's all the "mid size and full size" trucks are too close in price people? No frills crew cab Frontier and Tacoma start at about $22k.

In Canada, the STX package is a option package for the XLT. In the USA it would be equivalent to an XLT with Chrome and convenience package.

35 K is the suggested retail, most dealers drop that by 6-8G. Its conventional knowledge here that a Super cab 4x4 STX goes for about 24G n Change on sale. The 2014 n 15 models will have better towing capabilities I believe and should outrun the competition with a new 9 speed transmission. The Ecoboost is still king if you ask me. The recalls are voluntary, GM, Toyote and Ram ignore problems until their called out and most of their owners wear Rose Couloured glasses. In regards to the Nissan, the new 5.0 Diesel is Genious move, Ford had better take note, I would prefer it over the EB and I'm a Ford guy...I think, I'd have to try the Nissan first to see what its like to drive!!! Just saying ;)

I forgot to mention that the Ecoboost is available in the STX trim, its the numerous orders of that that lead I believe to the Tremer, all they did was a regular cab with FX4 package...briliant. I wish they would at least include their SVT exhaust and a performance tune!! make it 385HP/420 Torque, I just love that thing!!!

You all know how bad I am to run my mouth about stupid stuff and my LOVE for RAM but looking at this Ford really makes me want one. These Ford trucks make RAM look stupid. Never thought I would say it but my blood runs FORD BLUE now!!


I think it already is that with just premium gas 385hp/430lb ft.

@Silver Raven: so whats so new for Phord in 2014 that will increase their towing? The Ford boys are gonna get out their magic dust and pencil whip them ratings again? Thought Ford and GM were doing a 10 speed? Whatever they do, hope it's better then that current "shudder" special.

Lol, Ford doesn't ignore issues? They have you convinced!

Hey Tom, will you ever stop trolling? Grow up dude!

My dad just got a 2013 stx ext cab the other day with the 5.0, 3.55 gears, I feel sorry for him it really sucks fuel. The oil pressure gauge already acts weird he was on a hill and I guess the hill brake crap what ever its call came on he dover over a kinda big rock with the back tire which made the truck spin then the oil pressure gauge went to 0 and the truck acted like it started running backwards. He shut the truck off turned it back on and it was okay. Only nice thing I like bout the truck is the rims. The bed floor has gaps you can see day light though. Might not be Fords problem them self, but if the dealer ship put the mud flaps on they did a piss poor job cause not one of them are straight or even

@SilverRaven They do not offer the Eco Boost in the STX package

@Silver Raven
I think it is possible for Ford to use the 3.2 Duratorque in the F-150s.

At the moment they are quite understressed and have the potential to be 240hp and over 420ftlb of torque.

I would really like to see this.

The 5 litre Cummins Titan is a brilliant move by Nissan, especially if they can also offer the 220hp 380ftlb, 2.8 Cummins in base model vehicles.

If the new Titan is based on a Y62 Patrol it will quite a strong vehicle.

Renault-Nissan are very experienced diesel LCV manufacturers globally. This will come in handy as well as Diaz.

Aslong as nissans new cummins gets 30 mpg that should do it.
If it gets less than 25 then its pointless.

Then you got a bunch of little highschool kids straight piping their diesel truck drinking monster energy drink. and shouting rollin

@Mechanic - That's right "Still doesn't have a Ram box!" so it is still slightly better than the RAM. Once Ford gets a useless RAM box, then they can try and match the number of recalls Fiat has.
Then they will be on the same playing field...the bottom of the quality usual. Maybe Ford can get the RAM stability control software next!

My biggest regret in life is that I didn't hit Ronald Reagan in the mouth while I had the chance.

I like the idea of a box, but the Rambox costs a pretty penny and makes you lose 15.4" of cargo box width. Thanks but no thanks!

@Lou, ".Fiat at the bottom of the quality list"

------------WRONG AGAIN LOU!---------------

One heavily touted model has the worst quality of any single nameplate in the auto industry's most closely watched index for problems in the first 90 days of ownership, USA TODAY has learned.

It's the Ford C-Max, a five-passenger crossover that comes both as a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid, according to three independent sources who have access to the full list of models in J.D. Power and Associates' Initial Quality Study.


Hemi you bonehead I know Ford builds about the F150 POS. Fiat has plenty of its own problems...if you want to look past the you did with the cmax, we can talk about the great success stories of fiat:

Dodge Mirada
Chrysler Sebring
Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon
Jeep Commander
Fiat 124 Sport Coupe (or rust coupe)

Need I go the $uck is this company still in business....heeeeheeee

RAM Brands Top J.D. Power's 2013 APEAL Study.

Top 2013 J.D. Power Dependability Study. Ram way above Chevy and Ford.

The STX super cab with the V8 is always my 'go to' truck. Upgrades thru-out, but a rubber floor and mono-chrome with color-key'd bumpers and grill surround. Perfection. Carpet doesn't make sense in a truck that gets used. I clean mine with a leaf blower and garden hose.

My biggest regret in life is that I didn't hit Lynn Townsend in the mouth while I had the chance.

2013 Ram 1500 pickup truck earns top marks
Consumer Reports News: July 16, 2013 06:08 AM

I must say that this is really funny.

HemiV8 the Rambo butthead troll is arguing with the fake Lou troll.

Karma can be a bitch.



Good ideas Ford. Just looked at some STXs for fun this weekend. Nice trucks but they were short a few places like - console without storage and cup holders and no electric driver seats offered. So they loose some takers right there. I always thought of them more as a styling exercise till I looked much closer. So Ford should offer the XLTs with the exterior of the STX or offer the STX a little upmarket like this and even go a little further. Customers want lots of choices no matter the model. It get's lookers to say yes. Hello manufacturers.

Actually what's funny Lou BC is that the troll has the real Lou calling himself LOU BC, the troll has made Lou a troll.

Good news is I like the trolls better that the original guys.

I have seen the light. Ram is the class leader.

I really do like FORD. Wish I had bought one instead of this POS RAM that has really cost me over the years. They say hindsight is 20-29, I think.

Wish I wasn't so stupide

One can now see if there are fake posts made in my name. I've changed to Lou_BC because it is my TTAC name. The advantage of the TypePad account is one can post fake posts using my name but if the post does not show up on my TypePad account, it wasn't made by me.

Trolls are killing PUTC.

@karl what's wrong with a straight piped diesel as long it gets better mpg and sounds better.
I have a dodge Cummins and get way better fuel economy than any egoboost or v8 with a lot more torque spared for work or play!
Ram has it right with a v6 diesel for fuel economy and an l6 Cummins for real work and balls no other is better than a straight 6 for balls!!!

@The Real Lou
I have a gut feeling on who is causing the problem.

@Big Al from Oz - no doubt but you can't fix stupid, correction you can fix stupid unless it is caused by disease or genetic flaws. Deliberate stupidity is either a serious character flaw, psych disorder or some lifeless nitwit with a misguided agenda.
At the end of the day, it doesn't hurt me because what happens on this site has zero bearing or effect on my personal life. I enjoy blogging and I enjoy this site but it has become a pit of sewage full of misinformation, disinformation and disrespect.
I am surprised that this site has any credibility left in the automotive world. Mike Levine must get heartburn when he reads these blogs.
No doubt, my comments aren't endearing myself to the "powers that be" which may be the reason why this site hasn't done much to curb the insanity.

Best Track,hands down!

Best Truck,hands down!

Ford is the BEST!!!

Everyone knows Ford is the best overall truck!!

Dodge sells less trucks,even with mighty Cummins they sell less than Ford and Chevy.

One thing I like about Dodge Trucks - Cummins!

Oh!,wait Dodge has nothing to do with Cummins,I know Chevy have Duramax,Ford - Powerstroke 6.7,what about Dodge? - NOTHING without Cummins!

Imagine Dodge without Cummins,oh yeah,no body even mention about Dodge Trucks without Cummins!

Here's a link that might help you understand the issues confronting this person that is 'impersonating' you. I had to deal with him as well.

I had a young guy at work (30) who I had to deal with and I had to find out how to manage him and try to convert his shortcomings into productivity. I came up with the following link which helped me greatly. The issue you have to resolve at work, I'm technical.

The kid only likes GM products to a ridiculous level, only liked a few bands, etc. If something interests people like him they will memorise it. Incredible stuff. They view something different as a threat. Black and white lifestyle.

Here is the link. After reading it he became easier to manage, and unfortunetely start a 'paperwork' trail.

Big OZ, Well said

Lou, you have been proven to be a liar and a fraud. doesn't owe you a dam thing. You're just a Ford slappy that has been bashing GM for as long as I have read this board.

Nobody at HQ cares what you say! Get over yourself!

When is PUTC going to initiate a mandatory login like other sites? Would cut out some of this trolling and spamming.

@Michigan Bob - you sound like a Rambo butthead troll. You’re so stupid, that you went to a Clippers game to get a haircut.

Big Al from Oz - I appreciate the man love. I get some solace for readers like you. People in which one can teach something about trucks and vehicles in general. I can share the wealth of information gathered over many years of studying and evaluating.

I have thought a lot about how much to tell about what I know. I came from a very working class family. Money was always a struggle. My father had a fourth grade education and although my mother graduated from 3rd grade, our family struggled. When I came upon the idea that we create our realities, I was still struggling and still mired in self-pity, hopelessness and helplessness.

At first I wasn’t very good at mechanics and I seemed to get progressively worst. That made me take a long hard look at my life, and figure out what I wanted, instead of what other people (and society) wanted for me.

I let go of a lot of what I didn’t want in my life before I began to discover what I did want. It wasn’t long after that I began to get the hang car mechanics. I worked diligently at creating my dream….a pick-up truck that could float on water. I tackled one area of life, and then another, and another and another, until, finally, I had a life I loved on the water with my truck.

My life now is most people’s wildest fantasy:

We have not one but two trailer homes.

Five years ago I had never had a stamp passport. Today my passport has the stamp of when I went to Mexico on vacation for 3 days.

I started a business in my spare bedroom with $25 and grew it into a $5000 company.

I married Jim, the love of my life not too long ago, when it became legal in a nearby State.

I am transitioning into my current joy professionally – writing and speaking and teaching you all on this blog.

Who could ask for anything more!
