Ford offers STX SuperCrew and STX Sport Package

There is no brand new full-size pickup from Ford this year. (The F-150 which was previewed with the Atlas Concept will be along as a 2015 model.) True to its strategy of keeping the game interesting, however, the pickup truck leader is adding a new 2014 F-150 STX SuperCrew and STX Sport Package.This is in addition to the 2014 F-150 Tremor, which was introduced recently.

I hope to road test both of these at the Texas Truck Rodeo in October, but I do like to give you a heads up when a new iteration of the F-Series is going to be in showrooms in the foreseeable future.

So, here’s the story:
The new F-150 STX SuperCrew is positioned between the XL and XLT models, and is a value-conscious choice for first time pickup owners and others who need work, sport or family transportation — a very large category.
