Ford has made a few notable tweaks to the lower end of its F-150 lineup, giving customers a more affordable version of the four-door SuperCrew body style. The popular SuperCrew could previously only be had on XLT models and above, but Ford has announced that 2014 F-150s with the base STX trim can get the more versatile body.

The STX SuperCrew brings the price of a four-door F-150 down from $34,525 to $33,145. Like the XLT SuperCrew, the STX will be available with the choice of a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed, while a 5.0-liter V8 can replace the base 3.7-liter V6 for $4,425. Ford has not released pricing on the different bed lengths yet, but opting for the 6.5-foot bed on the XLT raises the price $1,240 and forces buyers into the 5.0-liter V8. We'd expect a similar arrangement on the STX.

The other big news for fans of affordable pickups is the addition of an STX Sport Package on the base-level truck. It adds 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, black-and-gray cloth seats and decals on the truck's box. The Sport Package is available on all three of the STX's body styles, with Ford listing the price as $980 with current discounts.

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 28, 2013 – Ford, America's truck leader, adds the 2014 Ford F-150 STX SuperCrew® and STX Sport Package to its lineup, offering entry-level and value-oriented truck customers capable, roomy and stylish new options.

A 5.0-liter V8 rated at 360 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque is also available, enabling STX SuperCrew to tow up to 9,500 pounds when properly equipped.

For buyers looking for extra style and personalization, the new STX Sport Package, available in all cab configurations, strengthens vehicle appearance with custom-inspired details.

Ford is offering this new configuration at a time when truck sales continue to be a bright spot in the economy. Sales of full-size pickups through July are up 23 percent, compared to an industry that is up 8 percent, making it the fastest growth segment this year. Through July, 427,935 Ford F-Series pickups have been sold. Ford F-Series is America's best-selling vehicle for 31 consecutive years and best-selling truck for 36 consecutive years.

Destination charges are $1,095.

      Guess they have to do whatever they can to move as many as possible before the next-gen truck arrives. I hope they keep this type of optioning available for 2015 models as well since XLT and Lariat crew-cab prices can get eye-watering at times....

      Woah 34k for a base truck.

      If that image is exactly how that packaging looks, then I think it's one of the better looking packages with its simplicity and clean looks. The vinyl stripe that comes with the FX Appearance package is too much, imo....

        The FX4 stripe package is an additional cost add on.

        The FX package looks the best, especially with the 20" wheels. You don't have to get the stripe. I don't like the stripe either. But you don't have to have to get the FX appearance package that adds the stripe, black, wheels, etc.

      Type your comment hereI You'd have to look long and hard to find a Ranger with a base of 34 large, maybe the FX4. 20" wheels are not affordable on any vehicle, sure they look cool until you need to buy new ones. These are not "trucks, they are obscenely bloated cars with no trunk lid. What does one put in a 5.5 foot bed that most people can't reach the bed floor over the bed side? Long live my '96 Ranger. As for fuel mileage 34 large will buy plenty.

        Yes saying a small truck thats no longer in production being cheaper than a full size base truck makes a lot of sense. Any other obvious things to point out? Also I know plenty of people who make use out of the 5.5' beds. Personally it's too small for my liking mainly because I like a larger bed for my kayak. But I know plenty who make use and use their trucks as trucks. What works for you doesn't work for others. A Ranger will have LOTS of limitations for lots of people. I always love people who come on here with their compact trucks and think their needs out of a truck are what everyone else needs and everything else isn't a "real" truck. Try towing any real load or carry a family comfortably in a Ranger.

      Perhaps affordable should have been written with sarcasm quotes. The no-longer-available compact 4 cylinder pick-ups of the past were affordable. No doubt a modern full size truck is light years ahead in features, safety, performance, etc. but costs 40-50k with options.

        So don't get any options? A base F150 still has better fuel economy than the 4 cyl Ranger (in auto trim anyway), it also seat 3 comfortably, has AC, power locks, all that jazz and costs a small amount more than the ranger.
        • 1 Year Ago
        Any vehicle gets pricey if you start ticking off all the option boxes. The STX is a decent package for what it costs. With 4x4, the 5.0 and appearance package they were going for 35k before the decent incentives they often have. Sure if you compare it to trucks years ago its expensive, but so is everything else. Had the STX had a backup camera option I might have bought one over the Tundra I ended up with for a couple grand more.

      Looks better than the more expensive ones.
