Center armrest storage

As the proud owner of a 17 year old F-150 Lariat, I feel like I need to say that I'm very disappointed with the design of the center seat/armrest/storage compartment in the 2013 F-150 I just bought.

I know the design is different and better in the xlt/Lariat, etc models since they have a center console with shift lever, storage and such, but the design in the stx is terrible.  It is so clumsy and heavy that you can hardly get into the storage area while driving.

I hate to say it, but the 17 year old design of having the storage in the seat back is much better than under the center seat cushion.

Bring the old back!

We have the same problem in our 2014 F150xlt. The storage is terrible and the armrest part of the seat is so big and bulky hubby can't fit into the passenger side with his back brace on. The seat needs to come up. Terrible design.
