Default How do you like your STX?

Hey guys, I'm new to the forums and will hopefully be new to Fords pretty soon. Looking at getting my first f-150 and the STX package really caught my eye for the price. For those of you that have one, how do you like it? Do you wish you went with an XLT/XTR instead?

I'm in Canada (Ontario) if it makes a difference...

I love it.. great starting point .. if i wasn't going to get an STX i would have started with a Lariat for push button start.. but the physical key is fine.. not like after 10 years of push button start in 4 cars i never had physical keys before

I went with the STX because i knew i was going to change a lot of things and i knew with adding modules and Forscan i could have additional things without playing the dealer premium .. getting the XLT for me would be a waste of money because i was going to change the additional things it came with or add it later cheaper

got it late august so far i've done

Good to hear!

I haven't been test driving yet as i'm not going to be serious for a few months yet but just doing my research.... am I right in thinking the door panel armrests are a solid plastic? Instead of a softer leather material like on the XLT's? If it is, how do you guys find that comfort wise?

I really like it. I needed 4WD, room for at least 3 and hopefully 4, and be somewhat comfortable. Never a GM product, so my short list was Tacoma (nice, but not huge fan of the looks and it's expensive), 2019 Ford Ranger (couldn't wait), RAM 1500 (liked it, but again, couldn't wait for a 2019), and the Ford F-150. I didn't really want a full-size, but I like the clean looks of the STX, and just the right feature set, and no chrome (lots of gorgeous trucks here with chrome; just not my thing). Options on mine are carpet, tow package (the medium one? confusing). I picked the 2.7 because specs seemed strong enough and I didn't want to spring for the 5.0. And it's really good. Plenty of power and great mileage. Since then I've done a few mild mods:

Forscan tweaks (no honk on second lock button push, various lighting changes, added a SiriusXM ACM, turned off Auto Start/Stop)
Whiter headlights (Sinoparcel)
LEDs: fogs, license plate, reverse, cargo lights
LED switchback DRL/turn signals
stubby antenna
Access tonneau cover
Ford bedliner insert
Ford wheel well liners
Ford bed cleats
Ford tailgate assist
Bullring tie-downs
Husky floor liners

I might do a few more mods for fun, like ambient lighting inside, but I love it the way it is.

Good luck. Post pics!

Nice looking truck!

When I get mine I was thinking of just doing a Roush exhaust, since my local dealer is now a Roush dealer. And possibly a small leveling kit.

They're, you know, ok. Around town, don't notice. I do long road trips occasionally and they aren't great, but still not a big deal. Coming home from the gym or after chainsaw work? Just right. I have some leather ones on the way that a member here found on eBay, so we'll see. But the rubber ones are fine. Part of keeping costs down.
