For those F-150 fans who are looking for a distinctive sport truck trim package but don't want 4WD and the off-road specific equipment of the wildly popular FX4, Ford is bringing the FX2 to its showrooms this fall.

The package, available on Super Cab and SuperCrew trucks, includes a billet aluminum grill, body-colored accents, a chrome exhaust tip, unique 18" wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, captain's chairs with accented stitching, and a special finish on the center stack and gage cluster.

There's no word yet on pricing or whether certain optional equipment (such as the 5.4L V8) will be mandatory. Ford expects that the FX2 will account for a healthy 5% of all F-series sales, or about 45,000 units each years.

      I guess as a base model it would be nice to have the ford products look like this, but trucks arent cars, they should have 4wd and if this thing is expensive its a joke

      The "special finish on the center stack and gage cluster" looks exactly like the finish on a normal FX4. Was it supposed to be even more "special" or are they referring to the special one that comes with the FX4 package?

      Its good Ford continues to offer more models, I think the truck needs a little chrome at least chrome running boards or something to livin it up a bit. Nice to get the FX package on a 2wd. I don't need the extra weight, mechanicals, or cost of a 4x4. I just need a truck to tow with.

      All this truck needs is the flareside and premium sound system and it will probably be my next vehicle. Wondering how much room in the back seat there is. The black leather seats with floor though console was exactly what was looking for. Hats off to the design team.

      I would think a truck like this would be very popular in the southern states like Texas and Florida. Peope their don't need a 4x4 but like the look of an FX4 so they shell out the extra dough for a 4x4. A while back (2004) Ford said it was surprised how many FX4 and 4x4 Lariats it sold in warm climate states, so many in fact that at first it made it tough to find a FX4 or 4x4 Lariat.

      If you think Thunderbird and Blackwood, both limited, special production vehicles are failures then you should include the Marauder too. Other brands had failures too: Chevy SSR, Pontiac Aztek, Toyota MR2 Spyder, Chrysler Crossfire. Who can think of others? I guess Ford had more failures than other companies...

      I was just thinking the other day how I needed a truck like this. Seriously, if the price is right, I'll buy. I don't need the 4WD, but don't wanna get a 2wd base base POS with none of the nice 4WD options.

      To the guy who doesn't get "Sport", no doubt the ride height will be different and the tires will be Z-rated (to 300km/h) all season Pirelli Pzero Scorpions. This will make a sweet street/sport truck. Think of it as a cheap Harley-Davidson F150, which is also a street.

      Has Ford gotten around to replacing the HUGELY obsolete 4 speed automatic with the ZF 6hp26?

      Does Ford even offer a four wheel drive F series pickup? No, no center differential to be found.

      It has always amazed me that a company that is so adept at designing and
      building trucks is such a total failure when it comes to its cars.

      Beautiful truck. It needs chrome, though. It's amazing they can make this F150 look so nice, yet, the Super Duty concept is hideous.

      I've never seen an FX4 look this good.

      GM, as a loyal fan of yours, please have your design team visit with the Ford guys. I'd much rather buy my next truck from you.
