I saw an ad for a F350 at the lot. The truck was not on the lot due to construction. It took a day to get the truck so I could see it. I made a deal and drove it away that afternoon. Happy with the vehicle. Sales person was new to Key West and lacked knowledge of all the options on the truck.
Over and above
They were great. They did everything in their power to help us. They really know there stuff. They took the time to explain everything and answer all if our questions. They really want to make that we got everything we needed and more.
Honest and Trustworthy Dealership
There were a few hiccups that came along with our purchase of a pre-owned vehicle but I was impressed with how much effort was taken to remedy the situation and make sure we were feeling great about our purchase. The dealership really went above and beyond to get us in a vehicle that was safe and good quality!
Jeff was very attentive both on-site and through follow-up calls, addressing concerns, and doing everything in his power to remedy the situation. I would highly recommend working with Jeff who was easy going, enthusiastic, and kept the process very simple.
In the end, we are very happy with our new (to us!) vehicle and I'm glad we went through this journey with Key West Ford and Jeff.
This was one of the best experiences I have had at a dealership. Thanks to Jag, Nick, and Mike for their help getting me into a great vehicle.
Got my dream car with a very good deal
One of my best experience ever, staff is so kind , also deals are awesome. They helps me a lot to get my dream car within my budget. Big thanks to peter olson.
Honest and a pleasure to wok with.
I bought a used truck which needed a bit of service. Key West Ford did not hesitate to insure the truck lived up to what they promised.
Efficient and Courteous!
I moved to Vancouver from Toronto and was in need of a truck. Pete was able to source one that I was looking for from Alberta and had it delivered quickly and was very communicative in terms of delivery status throughout. He was even kind enough to send me some recommendations for places to go around New West with me being new to the area. Thanks Pete!
Hard working and helpful staff
All of the staff at the dealership were very friendly and helpful during my time there. I enjoyed test driving a few of the vehicles available. The dealership is currently under construction which lead to some problems getting a hold of the vehicle I was looking for but my salesman eventually got a hold of it after a long day. All of the issues I had with the new vehicle I purchased were dealt with promptly and professionally.
Was looking to trade in my vehicle and found a mustang I really wanted. Staff worked with me to find an outcome that was a win-win for both parties. Would definitely reccomend.
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
In case you aren’t aware, “overlanding” is a form of outdoor adventuring that has its participants cross extreme terrains and endure wild climate conditions. Traditionally, it’s solely been the domain of uber-expensive modified SUVs and trucks… but no longer. Nissan’s “Destination Frontier” one-off truck is ridiculously capable for these situations—and was created for only approximately $40,000.
The Nissan crew began with the 2019 Frontier Crew Cab SV 4x4 Midnight Edition as a base and went from there. Modifications include body/drivetrain protection for off-roading and associated obstacles; improved ground clearance; a 3-inch Nisstec lift kit; and Nitto Trail Grappler off-road tires with American Racing AX201 wheels, among other tweaks.
In its unmodified base form, the 2019 Nissan Frontier offers a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine that cranks out 261 horses and 281 lb-ft of torque. With it, the Frontier can tow up to 6,720 pounds.
The amazing Nissan Destination Frontier will be displayed at the 2019 Overland Expo West on May 17 - 19 at Ft. Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, Arizona. Call us to learn more today!
Nissan’s up to some good things, Tacoma! The company announced this week that, in honor of the Grand Canyon’s 100-year anniversary as a national park, the automaker will be donating the Ultimate Parks TITAN purpose-built park support vehicle to the Grand Canyon Conservancy.
The donation comes as part of Nissan’s partnership with the National Park Foundation. The Ultimate Parks TITAN support vehicle will assist the Grand Canyon Conservancy’s Canyon Field School by offering opportunities for youths to enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer and, specifically, the amazing qualities of the Grand Canyon National Park.
The Ultimate Parks TITAN is based on the 2019 Nissan TITAN XD Gas PRO-4X Crew Cab. As such, it is powered by the 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine which produces 390 HP and 394 lb-ft of torque. All-terrain traction is offered through the sophisticated four-wheel-drive system, too.
"Nissan is proud to support the outstanding work being performed, trail-by-trail, campsite-by-campsite, by partners like the National Park Foundation, Grand Canyon Conservancy and Arizona Conservation Corps," remarked Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. "This custom-built TITAN XD 4x4 and trailer should help make their important work in remote areas of the park a little easier, safer and hopefully even a little more comfortable.”
The Altima is exceptional… and we’re not the only ones saying it! The 2019 iteration of Nissan’s machine has been selected as one of Autotrader’s “12 Best New Cars.”
Autotrader is impressed by many aspects of the 2019 Altima, although three particularly stand out. The car supplies all-wheel drive with wondrous traction, as well as an upscale interior that the editors said felt like it belonged in a much more expensive car. Further, there’s the VC-Turbo variable compression engine. It offers superior power or enhanced efficiency depending on what the moment requires—and is the first production engine of its kind.
Autotrader said the following: “Every car on this list is completely redesigned or an all-new model for this year. They all bring something fresh and innovative compared to their competitors and all have some combination of impressive tech, surprisingly good driving dynamics, strong value or just getting the details exactly right.”
Keep in mind that the 2019 Altima is available now for only $24,000 and comes packed with Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and more.
There’s some serious tech packed into the 2019 Nissan Altima. Take, for instance, its engine. The 2.5-liter unit is something special in that it benefits from a special manufacturing process that usually only finds its way into the engines of supercars.
The engine block of the 2019 Nissan Altima benefits from a cutting-edge mirror bore process that serves to enhance efficiency and reduce friction. Overall, the elimination of bulky cylinder liners allows the motor to operate more smoothly. The treatment was first used in the Nissan GT-R and now, thanks to the Decherd assembly line, it’s made its way to the Altima. As a result, it’s now the highest volume application of the tech at Nissan—Decherd’s team assembles a motor every 19 seconds and can pump out as many as 1.4 million units a year.
"Advanced technology like the mirror bore process only makes sense for Nissan if we can offer it to as many customers as possible," said Jay Boyte, director of engineering at Decherd Powertrain Plant, Nissan North America. "The end result is an innovative and efficient engine made with manufacturing technology usually not available at this volume or price point," added Boyte.
The accolades for Nissan’s fleet of vehicles keep rolling in! Now, it’s the Good Housekeeping Institute piping up alongside “Car and Driver” magazine. After testing 50 vehicles, the two selected a small range of their favorites within different categories. In the competitive subcompact crossover segment, the 2019 Nissan Kicks came out the victor!
Using industry protocols, the team of testers examined all the cars and ranked them on value, design, technology, handling, and safety. The Kicks performed beautifully across the board. The testing editors noted the following about the 2019 Nissan Kicks: "When it comes to the Kicks, it's all about value. You won't find a more solid car at this great of a price.”
All three models of the 2019 Kicks (S, SV, and SR) come with a 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with a Continuous Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS). As a result, drivers can expect 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque as well as an average combined MPG of 33.
This year’s Altima was a wonderful choice by Autotrader (if we may say so). The publication explains that they were impressed by the upscale interior, which gave the feeling that they were driving a more expensive car. Also notable was the traction offered by all-wheel drive, as well as the VC-Turbo variable compression engine. The first production engine of its kind, it intelligently provides more power on demand or scales back and improves efficiency when you move to cruising speeds.
The Autotrader editors had this to say: “Every car on this list is completely redesigned or an all-new model for this year. They all bring something fresh and innovative compared to their competitors and all have some combination of impressive tech, surprisingly good driving dynamics, strong value or just getting the details exactly right.”
Bear in mind that the standard 2019 Altima—starting at just $24,000—comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an eight-inch color display. Further, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat makes it easy to slide into the optimal driving position, and features such as Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning keep you safe.

According to an online article by Automotive News, a next-generation Nissan Frontier will debut in the fall of 2020 as a 2021 model, boasting a redesign that hasn’t seen a major update since it was introduced in 2004 as a 2005 model.
Based on their sources, the new Frontier will sport “futuristic” styling that will “still look like a truck.” It will continue to ride on its F-Alpha truck platform due to cost and size issues and not adopt the global Navara platform, which is sold overseas and is not well-suited to the needs of North American drivers. Under the hood, the optional 261-horsepower 4.0-liter V6 engine will be replaced by a new 3.0-liter engine rated at approximately 300 horsepower, thus placing the Frontier near the top of its class. The automatic transmission will also be refreshed with the addition of two extra gears for a total of seven.
The Frontier is popular with midsize truck enthusiasts due to its long-standing heritage and competitive pricing. It’s the only pickup that sells, on average, for less than $30,000 in a segment where the average transaction price last year was $32,800, according to J.D. Power.
As more details are released about the forthcoming Frontier, we’ll be sure to share the news right here on our blog. In the meantime, if you have questions, feel free to contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to discuss the Frontier’s specs, trim levels and pricing.

With Nissan releasing the 2020 Versa sedan today at the "Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival" in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the automaker has also announced changes to the Versa line-up – specifically, Nissan will discontinue production of the Versa Note compact hatchback at the end of the 2019 model year.
Nissan hasn’t provided an official reason for ceasing the Versa Note; however, a recent article by AutoBlog shows that the Versa's sales dropped 29 percent last year, selling only 75,809 models. Since the automaker doesn’t segment sales by variant, it’s hard to know where the Versa Note falls within those numbers. But, with the launch of the new Versa sedan, there is great hope that the nameplate will rebound back to its former sales glory by focusing on the singular platform.
In the meantime, consumers wanting to get into a new Versa Note will have to act quick – there are reportedly only 300 units available across the country. At Kirkland Nissan, we do have preowned models in our used inventory, which are available for test driving today.

A few weeks ago, we shared news about 2020 Nissan Juke spy images floating around the internet in full camo. But, now, thanks to the folks at Kolesa.ru, professional renderings of the compact crossover have been released. You can view them here.
One quick glance at the next-gen Juke and it’s clear that Nissan has taken an evolutionary approach, rather than revolutionary. The vehicle’s quirky exterior is still a focal point; however, some of the front- and back-end lines have been refined for a softer, less bulging appearance. The fascia also features a stacked three-row LED lighting configuration, along with a larger radiator grille.
Since this next-gen Juke is slated for release within the European market, automotive journalists are expecting that Renault Nissan’s 1.5-liter dCi engine will be popular with consumers, followed by a compact hybrid powertrain. The model will also be based on the CMF-B platform, which also underpins other models from the Alliance, including the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail and the Renault Kadjar and Koleos.
As mentioned, there are no plans to re-release the 2020 Nissan Juke to the North American market since it was removed from the line-up and replaced with the new Kicks. However, if you want to add some of the Juke’s eccentricity to your life, our dealership does carry a range of preowned models.

This week in Detroit, the 2018 Nissan Leaf was recognized as the highest rated redesign at the inaugural J.D. Power Engineering Awards, which were presented at the Society of Automotive Engineers 2019 WCX World Congress Experience.
"This award is a credit to [the] hundreds of Nissan technical professionals here in the U.S., as well as in Japan," said Chris Reed, Senior VP of Engineering at Nissan North America, in a press release. "Any vehicle redesign requires a massive amount of coordination across many functional teams, and I am very proud of the excellent vehicle this effort produced, which has been recognized by J.D. Power."
Within the automotive industry, J.D. Power has cemented itself as the authority for benchmarking quality. With their new Engineering Awards, they are able to recognize the achievements of innovators who turn concept vehicles into practical modes of transportation. The Leaf is a prime example – since its release in 2010, the all-electric car’s engineers have been able to utilize the lessons learned from each generation and apply that education to the Leaf’s latest redesign, which will see the release of a PLUS version later this year.
To learn more about the Leaf’s engineering excellence or to inquire about the forthcoming Leaf PLUS, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, today.
