2023 Ford F-250 With STX Appearance Package: Live Photos

Since the unveiling of the 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty back in September, Ford Authority have spotted several variants of the heavy duty pickup that were not shown off at the reveal. This includes a 2023 Ford F-600 XL chassis cab, a Ford F-350 Limited, an F-250 King Ranch Tremor, an F-350 Regular Cab and an F-350 XL Chassis Cab, just to name a few. Now, we’ve spotted a 2023 Ford F-250 XL with the STX Appearance Package, representing the very first time that we’ve seen the STX for the all-new generation.

This particular Crew Cab model is painted in Stone Gray Metallic (paint code D1) and features an eight-foot long bed. The STX Appearance Package, available on the 2023 Ford F-250 XL and 2023 Ford F-350 XL, dresses up the base truck with attractive styling bits. Adding $5,115 to the overall cost of the pickup, the STX package can be easily identified by the STX fender vent insert, which takes the place of the XL badging on XL models without the STX pack. For the 2023 Super Duty, the STX package includes the following content:


  • Automatic High Beams
  • LED Box Lighting
  • LED Center High-Mounted Stop Lamp
  • LED Fog Lamps
  • LED Reflector Lamps (headlights)
  • Painted Grille
  • STX Fender Vent Badge
  • BoxLink (includes four premium locking cleats and Interface Brackets)
  • Body-color Front and Rear Bumpers
  • 18-inch Ebony Black Painted Aluminum Wheels
  • LT275/70Rx18E BSW all-terrain tires, 4×4
  • 20-inch Dark Carbonized Gray Painted Cast Aluminum Wheels (optional)
  • LT275/65R 20E BSW all-terrain tires
  • Platform Running Boards


  • 360-Degree Camera Package
  • BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert/ BLIS with Trailer Coverage
  • Cloth 40/20/40 Split Bench with center armrest, cupholder and storage; manual lumbar (driver’s side only)
  • Floor Covering, color-coordinated full carpet with floor mats
  • Upgraded Interior Door Panels


  • Open option for 7.3L gasoline engine
  • 10K GVWR Package (F-250)


  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Reverse Brake Assist
  • Reverse Sensing System

Interestingly, this truck seems to be missing the running boards (under the exterior section).

It’s important to note that the STX package is not available in conjunction with the XL Chrome Package, and is only offered on single-rear-wheel drive models.

The 2023 Ford F-250 features the all-new 6.8L gasoline engine as standard, but opting for the STX package grants the option to add the 7.3L V8 Godzilla engine. This particular F-250 features the 6.7L V8 Power Stroke engine, which is rated at 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque.

Additionally, this F-250 features the FX4 Off-Road Package, identified by the FX4 badge affixed to the bedside. This $495 package adds the following content to the pickup:

  • Hill Descent Control
  • Specifically tuned front and rear shock absorbers for off-road
  • Skid plates – transfer case and fuel tanks
  • “FX4 Off-Road” box decal

    Ford Authority, unless you’re trying to entice people to buy the 2024 model year Super Duty, you can stop promoting them now. Since November 2nd, I’ve contacted the four dealers within 150 miles of me to place an order; one had one allocation left, for XL or XLT. Bought my last (and currently driving) brand new F150 Lariat in 2006 but will be buying 23 GMC or ordering 24 GMC now. Way to go Ford Motor! 👏👏

      Stupendous logic.

    Iam absolutely furious with ford I was told by my dealer the other banks for the f350 super duty was this the end of November I tried to order another f350 on October 27th dealer told me the order bank crashed but I had plenty of time took my other f350 for service on November 22nd with all intentions of ordering my new f350 and he told me he can’t because the last day of ordering was Nov 21st I just couldn’t believe it tried calling ford customer service on Friday and they were closed just don’t understand why the horrible run around when u r trying to buy a 90grand plus truck have a happy holiday

      I was able to order a 2023 F250 on October 27th. Yes, the order banks were very slow with thousands of dealers trying to order at the same time. We started trying to order at 4:30 PM and the order did not get in till 7:30 PM. Also the XL, XLT and Lariat will be built first (Jan-March) then the Platinum and Limited after March 1.
      Probably won’t see ours till July or later.

    You should have waited. There’s literally thousands and thousands of brand new super duties sitting at the Indiana raceway. I suspect, after the whole covid thing took over and people lost their jobs, no one has been able to find similar paying jobs, and the layoffs keep happening. It’s the same reason why all those container ships were sitting off the coasts, there’s no space for all the new merchandise, no one has money to buy anything, people stopped paying rent a long time ago. The only folks with money are the retired folks. Even then, that’s a small group. They better hurry up and make all those social security checks $4k monthly, or the party is going to be over in the USA. Either way though, if you look around the world at the amount of people that are getting pulled out of poverty, being put into brand new homes and cities, pretty soon all those folks will be on the same level as all of us Americans, which in turn, will be less to go around, or just not available. Expect that with all your big ticket purchases, and appliances. So what do we do? We get those social security checks raised, so that millions of newly retired Americans can decide which companies and products are a necessity, and which ones we can do without. Plus, this will be a great time to teach the younger generations how to live happily with less. No more waste, or crap that gets thrown away after a week of use. There’s really not going to be an option, factory jobs lost are not being replaced at the same rate. Necessities are great luxury homes and buildings, great food, big families, and all the rest of the luxury goods, just expect to pay more for them. The other option to save the US economy from collapse, would be to just start giving everyone young and old a universal income, that way folks won’t go to work, or they will, but they won’t work as hard. This is a totally bad plan, and should never ever come to that point. Let the young people work for their stuff, build lots of luxury homes, so that they can afford them later on in life. Let the retired folks who put in their time, get a break, feel rich, have enough money they can spend and save at the same time
