I got a good deal on my Elantra gt hatchback. Jag was super nice and showed me everything about the cars I liked. Got a good car on my budget. Also all the staff were super nice. I highly recommend key west ford.
Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!
Easy going, not pushy and personable
Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!
Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind,
Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!
Jag was super help full and well knowable of the cars
he did great job to explain everything and at the end help to set up Bluetooth and navigation system I am really thankful to Jag for this experience
Great service and for sure will come back afin
Great sales and communication
I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.
Excellent service and follow through
We were window shopping for a new vehicle in the near future. Tom showed us exactly what we wanted and made the deal happen today. We are exceptionally happy with his service and would recommend friends and family go see him at Key West Ford!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff that made it easy to decide on a vehicle. We are happy with the experience and would definitely recommend this dealership.
Change is a good thing
Best attention to my needs & very respectful 😊
Jag and the team are very hospitable. They all made me feel as tho’ I was their guest. I was lucky that they had exactly what I needed in the lot and I was given the best deal I could have hoped for. Thank you, Jag !

Earlier this month, Nissan unveiled its two latest concept vehicles at the 2018 Madrid Motor Show in Spain and the timing couldn’t be any better with the summer travel season upon us. Allow us to introduce to you the Nissan NV300 and e-NV200.
Both concepts are engineered to be used as campers, providing an interior and exterior design well-suited for life in the great outdoors. The colorful NV300 and e-NV200 are outfitted with bike racks, roll-out shades and pop-up roof tents, while the inside is equipped with a small kitchenette that includes a refrigerator, sink, range and dining table. There is room for two beds (one in the roof and one down below) for four people and both vans have heating, thus further extending the use of the campers into the cooler months.
As for power, the NV300 runs on a 1.6-liter turbo diesel, which is not available in North America, and the e-NV200 offers zero-emissions performance from its 40 kWh battery pack. It's good for about 124 miles of range, which is fantastic for a camper of this caliber.
Alas, there are no plans to release the Nissan NV300 and e-NV200 on Seattle soil, however, one can wish! To chat more about these concept vehicles or our line-up available vans, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for more.

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.

Nissan certainly has winter on its mind! To complement the snowmobile-inspired 370Zki, which the automaker is unveiling at this week's Chicago Auto Show, the engineers at Nissan have also created a second concept car, dubbed the 2018 Armada Snow Patrol.
This design literally takes Nissan's flagship SUV to new heights, removing the Armada from the carpool line and returning it to its roots as an adventure-ready off-roader. It features an all-new design with more height, a massive front bumper, and extreme all-terrain tires, making this SUV ready for anything, including snow-covered mountains.
The 2018 Armada Snow Patrol comes equipped with 20-inch Cognito Series 61 wheels finished in satin black and Pro Comp MT2 off-road tires. The suspension has been raised by two inches in the front and one inch in the rear, giving it a towering and aggressive stance.
Up front, the bumper features a new bull bar, 12,000 lb winch, and LED light bar. Adding to the vehicle's rugged appeal are five-inch LED fog lights, custom side steps, rock sliders, and a huge LED light bar on the roof rack. Under the Armada Snow Patrol's bright blue wrap with custom badging, the interior of the cabin has also been re-trimmed with leather seats and door panels.
The Armada Snow Patrol is a definite hard-core SUV - one that has Seattle off-roaders hoping to see it hit the production line soon. Alas, the automaker has yet to announce official plans for this concept - and they may never will.
But, you can still get a taste of the 2018 Armada's best-in-class standard 390 horsepower, full-feature eight-passenger interior and class-exclusive Intelligent Rear View Mirror by scheduling a test drive at our dealership. To learn more, contact us at Kirkland Nissan today.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Nissan has turned its iconic 370Z Roadster into a snowmobile. That’s right – a snowmobile. Dubbed the 370Zki – pronounced “370-Ski" – the 332-horsepower concept will make its world debut this week at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
And what better place to unveil a snowmobile-inspired vehicle than in the “Windy City” in the dead of winter. Should Chicago get plummeted with a blizzard, the 370Zki will have no trouble carving its way through deep powder to reach McCormick Place.
However, transforming a stock 370Z to the 370Zki was not easy. To make room for the rear DOMINATOR Tracks, the Roadster’s entire drivetrain had to be removed. Next came the fabrication of custom mountings for the rear suspension springs and three-inch custom spacers to install the snow tracks to the wheel hubs. The 370Z’s brakes were retained, but the lines had to be rerouted and the exhaust system was modified to fit under the vehicle. The rear wheel wells were also altered for clearance of the four-foot-long snow tracks.
On the exterior, Nissan kept its cosmetic changes to a minimum, opting to wrap the 370Zki to resemble ski goggles. Watch as it is put through its paces on the slopes in Wyoming:
Are you wanting to hit the “Znow” in a 370Zki? One can only dream since this concept car will likely never hit production. Alas, spring will soon be here – why not test drive a 2018 370Z from Kirkland Nissan instead? To learn more, contact our team today.

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.
Hot on the heels of the LEAF’s FIPA Green Car of the Year honors today comes the announcement that the Nissan Xmotion has garnered its own acclaim. The concept has claimed the "Innovative Use of Color, Graphics or Materials" award at the 2018 North American International Auto Show. This marks the second consecutive time that the manufacturer has nabbed the commendation.
The innovation award comes courtesy of EyesOn Design. It was given to the Xmotion concept in part because of its deft incorporation of hues. Prominently featured on the exterior is a special silver that was created to resemble pewter, a malleable metal often used in Japanese handicrafts. On the interior, red and white were integrated to represent the country’s national colors. Additionally, black was put in to reflect modernity and the advance of technology, as were Nishijin-weave carbon-fiber accents.
It’s not just color, however. The innovative design award was also presented due to Xmotion’s dedication to new user interfaces. The concept pushes the boundaries of modern technology by introducing fresh ways for the driver to control the crossover, including gestures, voice commands, and eye movements. It’s something far beyond what’s seen in current SUVs such as the Pathfinder.
Revealed yesterday at Detroit’s 2018 North American International Auto Show, the Nissan Xmotion concept is a spirited design exploration of everything the future of SUVs can hold for Seattleites and global citizens. It fuses American-centric style with traditional Japanese culture for something altogether different, as is readily apparent when you examine its breathtaking exterior.
Nissan remarks that the refreshed “boomerang” headlights go a step further in aggressiveness on the Xmotion concept, now resembling “forged steel blades" unlike anything seen on, say, the Murano. Cool, right? But there’s also a functional side to this—the lamps are integrated smartly into a single piece, offering turn signals, positional units, and both high and low beams all in one place. Further, the color and intensity alter depending on conditions.
The rear of the Xmotion is similarly inspired. The details are taken from the warmth of kumiko (Japanese puzzles and woodwork). When the taillights are on, blocks will appear that are created by a holographic image—effectively, an optical illusion that oozes progressive style. And on the sides of the crossover, the U-shaped body provides an unbroken visual wave that undulates from front to back.

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.

Today, Nissan took the wraps off their incredible new Xmotion crossover concept at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The forward-thinking compact SUV offers an amazing fusion of Japanese and American craftsmanship on the interior, and we’d be remiss not to detail it in full.
The cabin was built based on the imagery of a river. The center console area acts as the “bridge” over it, offering the allure of the Japanese architectural wood joinery practice, kanawatsugi, which is most often featured in religious shrines of that country. The Xmotion’s instrument panel continues that design in what Nissan considers a “robust bone structure” that exudes strength. It's something wholly different than what you see in today's Rogue, for example.
More concretely, there’s a ton of technology to appreciate in the Xmotion concept. There are seven total displays throughout the dash that offer vehicle settings and information. Notably, each can be controlled through voice commands, gestures, and even eye movements—quite the user interface revolution! There’s also a “digital room mirror” on the ceiling that Nissan has yet to expound upon in detail.
