We just purchased a 2018 F-150 from Robert Antoniak at Key West Ford in New Westminster BC. The truck is awesome. we looked around at all the makes of full-size pickups, new and used, and finally settled on a Ford. From the time we walked into the dealership until we drove the truck home, the service was outstanding. Robert was professional, informed, and patient. He listed, advised, educated and helped us, as new to full-size pickups, to decide what it was we needed and, more important, what we didn't need. He spent more time helping us out then we would have expected, and he has a great sense of humour. I would recommend Robert Antoniak and Key West Ford to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle.
Great customer service
I bought my fourth car from this dealer ship and every time I got very satisfy. I got a used car and they took care of both of us .

Allan was awesome guy got me the best deal on F 150. I recommend him to anyone and the whole team is good people. Thanks guys !
I bought my Jeep from there. It was the smoothest purchase i ever made. Tom was delightful. He wasn’t pushy as some sales people you might encounter. I’ve had a few sales people I dealt with a few dealership prior to buying my car and I made my decision with Ford because of this experience( I have to mention Hamid at Subaru Dealership at Boundary is also great.). Tom is very informative and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about Tom and how professional him
and his management team was. Go with these guys if you want to have a piece of mind.
Pleasant experiance in purchasing my new vehicle.
The total experience of purchasing my new vehicle from Allan was enjoyable. Allan was very informative explaining thing and did not push for a sale allowing me to come to the decision that the car I wanted was the right vehicle for me. Every one else I dealt with at Key West Ford was also very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely do it again when the time comes.
Very pleasant car purchase experience with Peter
Found a car online, called in and scheduled an appointment with Peter. He got the car prepared before we arrived and got us a great deal. Highly recommend!

Last week at the Geneva International Motor Show, Nissan dropped the curtain on its newest concept vehicle – the IMx KURO. If this electric crossover looks familiar to you, it’s because it is – Nissan originally revealed the IMx at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.
Since then, the automaker has made some exciting enhancements to the IMx KURO. This mighty machine now boasts an all-new look with black trim and wheels, an updated grille, and a new dark gray body color, which is generating a great deal of buzz.
But, more importantly, the IMx KURO is also providing consumers with a glimpse into Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the company's vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. According to Nissan, the concept vehicle is designed to strengthen the link between car and driver as a close, reliable partner that delivers a safer, more convenient and exciting drive.
The tech-inclusions in the IMx KURO reflect this viewpoint. For one, it features Brain to Vehicle (B2V) technology, which interprets signals from the driver’s mind to assist in maneuvering the IMx. The Kuro concept also builds on Nissan’s ProPILOT technology by offering fully autonomous operation. When in ProPILOT mode, the system stows the steering wheel inside the dash and reclines all seats, giving the driver more space to enjoy their commute.
Like all Nissan concept cars, the IMx KURO won’t be available for purchase. However, many of the concept’s cutting-edge technologies will make their way to the market for mass consumption. To learn more about autonomous driving and how it’s changing the future of driving, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to chat.

At the end of 2017, we shared news about one of Nissan's latest concepts called Easy Ride. Together with their partner, DeNA Company, Ltd., the innovators have been working tirelessly to launch a new robo-vehicle mobility service that uses autonomous driving technologies.
Well, it appears that Nissan and DeNA are getting closer to having their dream become a reality. Just last week, it was announced that field testing of the Easy Ride concept is set to begin on March 5, 2018, in Japan's Minatomirai district of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.
During the trial, participants will be able to travel in vehicles equipped with autonomous driving technologies along a set route, which runs 4.5 kilometers between Nissan's Global Headquarters and the Yokohama World Porters Shopping Center. Using a dedicated mobile app, participants will be able to input their desired activity using text or voice and choose from a list of recommended destinations. An in-car tablet will show selections of nearly 500 recommended places of interest and events within the vicinity, and provide exclusive money-saving coupons.
In return, participants must complete a survey about their overall user experience, thoughts about the content and coupon offerings, as well as preferred pricing for the Easy Ride service. Nissan and DeNA will then use these results to further develop the concept for additional field tests or launch time.
There's still no set date as to when Easy Ride will hit the global stage, but as news is released, we'll be sure to share more on our blog. In the meantime, should you have questions about Nissan's autonomous driving technologies, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington to speak with a member of our sales team.

2018 has been a big year for Nissan. Just in the last month, accolades and awards have been rolling in for the automaker, highlighting excellence in all areas of their product line-up. The Nissan Xmotion concept car recently drove off with a 2018 EyesOn Award, while the Leaf EV took high honors in the electric car category of What Car? Car of the Year Awards. And now, Nissan is gearing up once again for another win; the Leaf was just named a finalist in the World Car of the Year Awards!
Representing the electric vehicle category, the Nissan Leaf is up against three other models: the BMW 530e iPerformance, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. A panel of 82 automotive journalists will evaluate the vehicles and the field of finalists will be narrowed down even further at the Geneva Motor Show. The winner for the World Car of the Year Awards will be officially announced at the New York Auto Show on March 28, 2018.
At Kirkland Nissan, we are expecting our Leaf EV to come out on top, especially since the next-gen model brings new enhancements and innovations to the masses. This includes Nissan's all-new ProPilot Assist technology, which is the future of semi-autonomous driving. The 2018 model also boasts an increased range of up to 150 miles, which is considered a huge gain in the plug-in electric world.
And, the Leaf is no stranger to this award. The EV took home the win back in 2011 and we are confident that it can do it again.
Are you excited for the winners to be announced? We are too! Stay tuned; we hope to deliver news of the Leaf's victory later this spring!

Recently, Nissan unveiled its Xmotion concept car at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, receiving rave reviews from industry insiders and automotive enthusiasts alike. But, that's not all the Xmotion received - it was also awarded the EyesOn Award, which recognizes innovative use of colors, graphics and materials.
The Xmotion concept fuses Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship with American-style utility and next-generation Intelligent Mobility technology. The exterior features a dynamic presence with an understated sculptural body, which includes flared fenders, U-shaped headlights, and a bold evolution of Nissan's signature V-motion grille. All of this is contrasted by the rugged metal-crafted wheels and all-terrain tire design.
Two colors were selected for use on the exterior - most notably is the silver pewter-like color, which is a metal traditionally found in Japanese fine art. This color flows beautifully with the dark black accents and red headlights, and showcases the various body shapes and contours found on the car.
Inside, the Xmotion's crafted interior design also pays homage to Nissan's roots with a Japanese landscape that incorporates advanced graphic user interfaces and autonomous driving technologies. The use of color was carefully considered in an effort to bring together tradition and modernity. Automotive enthusiasts are still talking about the virtual koi fish, which swims between the console and middle-mounted armrest touchscreen.
And while the Xmotion is not set to hit the production line anytime soon - or at all - it continues to highlight how Nissan is always on the cutting-edge of technology by bringing leading innovations to the masses.

The all-new next-gen Nissan Leaf isn't available for purchase at our dealership in Seattle, Washington, but that hasn't stopped the world's most popular EV from raking in the hardware from across the pond. Most recently, the 2018 Leaf was named the "Best Electric Car" in the What Car? Car of the Year Awards, which is one of the UK's biggest car-buying media brands, widely regarded as a trusted source for new car advice.
Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, praised the award-winning model for its year-round range and performance. "The electric car market has never been more competitive, yet the Leaf saw off all its rivals because it makes the most sense to most buyers," he said in a statement. "It combines excellent performance with generous standard equipment and low running costs. And even in winter weather, its real-world range is good."
This is thanks to a host of new innovations found on the 2018 Leaf, which allow the EV to drive farther, better and smarter than ever before. This includes available ProPilot Assist, which helps motorists navigate stop-and-go traffic by assisting control of acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane highway driving. The 2018 Leaf also delivers an increased range of up to 150 miles and incorporates standard Nissan Intelligent Mobility features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and e-Pedal technology.
When the all-new Leaf descends upon our dealership, it will signal the future of transportation in Seattle, Washington. To pre-book your test drive, contact us today or browse our online inventory to see many other great in-stock models.

Yesterday, Nissan unveiled a brand new concept vehicle at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, called the Xmotion (pronounced “cross-motion”). And just 24 hours later, the six-passenger three-row crossover SUV is already receiving rave reviews for its sleek exterior lines and sharp angles, as well as its unique interior, which blends touchscreen displays, innovative control mechanisms, and a futuristic look that’s clean, modern, and expressive.
According to Nissan, the Xmotion concept fuses Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship with American-styling and next-generation Intelligent Mobility technology. The exterior features a dynamic presence with an understated sculptural body, which includes prominently flared fenders, wedge-shaped headlights, and a bold evolution of Nissan’s iconic V-motion grille. It’s an expression of dramatic simplicity, which is wonderfully contrasted by the rugged metal-crafted wheels and all-terrain tire design. Some automotive journalists have likened the concept vehicle to that of a futuristic version of the cult-classic Nissan Xterra, which they claim is a good thing.
And while the exterior of the Xmotion is incredibly interesting, the interior of this concept vehicle is what’s truly astounding. Inside, it features a crafted design that pays homage to Nissan’s roots by combining a symbolic representation of a Japanese landscape with an advanced user interface and autonomous driving technologies.
This includes a digital assistant that’s personified as a virtual koi fish on the in-car displays. It swims between the console and a middle-mounted armrest touchscreen, and can intelligently program interior cabin conditions based on the destination and user preferences. The virtual koi also assists the Xmotion when in autonomous mode, providing key information about the current route and potential slowdowns, while also handling driving duties.
As for what’s under the hood, Nissan didn’t specify powertrain specs since the Xmotion is an expression of design and technology, versus power and performance. And seeing that it is a concept vehicle, it isn’t intended for production, however, many industry watchers expect that the Xmotion's design cues may find their way to future Nissan SUVs, like the rumored Xterra. Time will be the judge of that.

The 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) kicks off tomorrow in Detroit with The Gallery. This exclusive event gives attendees an up-close look at the most exquisite and acclaimed collection of automobiles in the world, totaling $10 million.
In preparation for the 2018 NAIAS, Nissan has released a subtle teaser, which is generating a great deal of buzz. Speculation is growing amongst industry insiders as many wonder if Nissan will be unveiling an autonomous concept car at the motor show.
The 42-second video features modernistic artwork, which demonstrates how Nissan is using tradition to bridge to the future of mobility. The message is rather cryptic, but automotive watchers have suggested that the automaker is hinting at an upcoming concept car that combines Nissan’s familiar design cues with all-new self-driving safety technologies.
Many suspect that the concept car will also feature a hybrid or all-electric powertrain, given Nissan’s recent launch of the next-gen Leaf EV, as well as other electric concepts at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. At the recent 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the automaker also showcased its “Brain-to-Vehicle” autonomous technology, which uses brainpower to perform maneuvers quicker than the human body can react.
Needless to say, Nissan has been cooking up an amazing array of innovative technologies that have the automotive industry buzzing with excitement.

This week, the Nissan Leaf reached a major milestone. In just seven short years of production, the EV hit the 300,000 mark for global sales. Unsurprisingly, this news cements the Leaf’s position as the world’s best-selling electric vehicle and a favorite here on North American soil.
"These numbers prove that the Nissan Leaf remains the most advanced car in the world, with the widest reach and the greatest availability,” said Nissan’s Executive VP Daniele Schillaci in a company statement. “The new Nissan Leaf is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility because it delivers an even more exciting drive and enhanced ownership experience. It will take Nissan's EV leadership even further."
Over the last seven years, sales for the Leaf have been incredibly strong, but we expect to see numbers climb even higher as EV enthusiasts eagerly await the next-gen model, which will feature an all-new range of 150 miles and an enhanced 40 kilowatt-hour battery pack. The 2018 Leaf will also come equipped with ProPILOT Assist, ProPILOT Park, and e-Pedal, offering drivers even more refinement, comfort and convenience when behind the wheel.
To learn more about the Leaf EV and its strong sales history and reputation, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington. Next-gen models are expected to arrive this month – be sure to pre-schedule your test drive by calling us today.
Get ready for a revolution in the way we interact with our automobiles, Ahead of their planned demonstration at the CES 2018 show in Las Vegas, Nissan has announced the latest breakthrough in their Intelligent Mobility initiative—Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V).
If it sees mass adoption in the future, B2V will change the way Seattle commutes. The system actually reads the owner’s mind, detecting when the driver is thinking of performing a movement (accelerating, braking, or turning the steering wheel) and automatically does that function for them. Also, when put into autonomous mode, the new advancement will also adjust the in-cabin environment by predicting discomfort and using augmented reality to deliver relaxation.
B2V is a world-first system. It works by having the driver wear a brain-wave measuring device. These detections are then analyzed and processed by autonomous technology within the car. This enables it to take actions on your behalf that are 0.2 to 0.5 seconds quicker than you’d be able to manage on your own.

It’s not a dream or a sci-fi plot, but rather the future of automotive technology. This week, Nissan is set to showcase its Brain-to-Vehicle (or B2V) technology at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, where the automaker will demonstrate new research that will one day allow vehicles to interpret signals from a driver’s brain.
B2V is also the latest development in Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the company’s vision for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. The research is cutting-edge and wildly innovative by taking a deeper look into brain decoding technology as a way to predict a driver’s actions, like turning the steering wheel or pressing on the accelerator. It can also detect discomfort and change the driving configuration or style when in autonomous mode.
But, B2V doesn’t end there. Nissan also claims that the technology is capable of augmenting reality by adjusting a vehicle’s internal environment so that it’s more peaceful and relaxing. For Seattle area commuters, imagine being able to change your daily view of gridlock and brake lights into something beautiful, like a grassy meadow or white sand beach with turquoise waters. It seems unbelievable or something only possible on the big screen. But, with Nissan pioneering B2V, the future of driving is now.
