I was extremely happy with most of the folks I spoke with during my time at Key West. It took me 3 days of visiting the dealership to make sure I was making the right decision on the vehicle for my needs and my budget. All staff but one understood that this purchase wasn't an easy one to make within my budget. Peter Olsen, Michael Nokes and Robert Klaus really understood why I needed to take my time and research all my options. I appreciated their kindness and patience and didn't feel at all pressured into the sale.
Helpful and honest dealers. Car was well inspected and in advertised good condition. Overall the service was good and the sale was fair. Dean was great!
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!

After unveiling the Nissan IMs concept car at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in January, the “elevated sports sedan” will make its second appearance at the 18th Shanghai International Automobile Exhibition later this month. The automaker will have the vehicle on display to show attendees how the company’s technologies and design embody Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is their vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.
Using a fully electric powertrain comprised of dual electric motors (front and rear) and a fast charging 115 kWh battery, the IMs generates enough power (483 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque) to compete with most contemporary sports cars. On a single charge, the concept can travel a full 380 miles, plus it features all-wheel drive for better weight balance, traction and cornering. Offering the choice of an autonomous or a manual driving mode, the IMs connects hands-free operation with exciting high-performance – it truly is the future of mobility.
Inside the cabin, the vehicle boasts a “2+1+2" design with pivoting front seats and a rear seat that can fit three across or converted into an indulgent "Premier Seat" when the rear outboards are folded. Since the sedan’s battery is located under the body of the electric vehicle, the IMs provides a higher driving position for greater visibility.

At the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, Nissan pulled the cover of its latest concept called the IMQ. While this platform will not be sold in the automaker’s line-up of passenger vehicles, its advanced technology and design do signal the direction of Nissan’s next generation of crossovers.
The IMQ concept is based on a multi-motor all-wheel drive setup that relies on e-Power, which is found in select Japanese Nissans, to create 335 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the automaker’s previous concept, the IMx, the IMQ is not purely electric – rather, it features a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine to complement the battery.
On the road, the IMQ incorporates the last innovations of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which include ProPILOT Assist for semi-autonomous driving and Invisible-to-Visible technology, which uses augmented reality to simulate objects outside of a driver’s field of vision. Inside the cabin, four individual seats accent the interior, as well as a gliding wing instrument panel, a centre console that stretches the length of the IMQ, and a smaller, secondary screen that houses a Virtual Personal Assistant. The concept’s radically sculpted exterior also boasts 22-inch alloy wheels, hinged doors, and a single continuous surface where the body meets the glass and roof.
To learn more about the IMQ, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to discuss.

At the Brussels Motor Show in Belgium, Nissan unveiled its latest concept vehicle designed with the mobile woodworker in mind. Known as the NV300, the automaker enhanced the versatility of its commercial vehicle to act as a functioning workspace for handy creatives on the road.
The NV300 concept van is a joint effort between Nissan and British Design Studio, Studio Hardie. It features a modified wooden interior that contains numerous practical and innovative features, like unfinished timber floors, walls and ample storage cupboards. There is even a workbench behind the driver's seat with a touchscreen computer and wall-mounted tool storage overhead. A swiveling stool also slides up and down the length of the cargo area on rails that are mounted to the floor.
But what would a workshop be without accessible power? Thankfully the NV300 comes equipped with an integrated portable battery solution known as Energy ROAM. It boasts a weatherproof power pack with a storage capacity of 700Wh and maximum power output of 1kW. Nissan used second-life batteries recovered from Leaf electric vehicles for the utmost in sustainable energy technology. The power pack can also be recharged using a solar panel accessory mounted on the roof of the van for off-grid versatility.
There’s no word yet if the NV300 will ever become available in North America, but one can dream! To learn more about this latest concept vehicle, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.
CNBC came away fascinated by Nissan’s bold move toward vehicle electrification as announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In fact, the press outlet considered it a direct challenge to Tesla.
The automaker has announced wide-sweeping plans for electrification across their lines. Aside from the range-increased revelation that is the LEAF e+, Nissan will now bring eight more electric cars to market by 2022. However—and more importantly to CNBC—there also lies the stated goal of Nissan's North American CEO to not only bring these machines to dealerships but to offer a "complete reinterpretation” of zero-emission auto design in the process.
Part of accomplishing the above is removing the traditional engine compartment altogether. In the case of the new IMs electric concept shown off at NAIAS, the motors, drivetrain, and battery packs are all under the load floor. This condensed design allows for a “cab-forward” construction that supplies greater passenger room. Further, the concept draws its interior design inspiration from the modern Japanese home, offering high-level craftsmanship through the use of innovative materials, including fabrics and hues that are darkened to imitate shadow and moonlight.
All in all, the press is absolutely buzzing about Nissan’s plans. Give us a call today to discuss them in further detail!
Nissan is making a serious breakthrough courtesy of its new IMs concept. The “elevated sports sedan” was revealed this past week at the 2019 North American International Auto Show and we must say, it really features some wickedly progressive technologies that are set to push the industry forward.
The IMs concept receives its performance-heavy character from the strategic placement of two electric motors—one at the front and one at the back of the machine. This arrangement provides smart balance, resulting in an optimal front/rear weight distribution. As a result, the auto offers fantastic cornering and is capable of maintaining its poise across various driving conditions. And since there’s an advanced air suspension system included, the concept is ready for whatever the roads throw at it.
This vehicle’s performance prowess is further emphasized via those two motors we previously mentioned. Insane power generation is achieved—it fact, this car is capable of creating 483 HP and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. Further, its 115-kWh battery supplies a driving range of 380 miles on one charge!

At CES 2019 in early January, Nissan unveiled its latest technology concept called Invisible-to-Visible (also known as I2V). And, at the recent 2019 North American International Auto Show, things came full-circle when the audience got an even closer look at the equipment with the release of the IMs concept vehicle.
Merging real and virtual worlds together, I2V uses a 3-D interface in the IMs to provide drivers and passengers with the ability to “see the invisible”, as Nissan describes it, thus adding confidence and excitement to their vehicle experience. This is made possible by Omni-Sensing technology, which tracks the IMs’ surroundings and anticipates what's ahead – even showing objects hidden around a corner or behind a building.
Guidance is given in an interactive, human-like way for a rich mixed-reality experience. The technology will also allow people to connect with each other through the virtual world and Omni-Sensing. Feeling down on a cloudy day? I2V can cheer up occupants by projecting sunny weather inside the vehicle. Drivers can also use local guides to get information about surrounding areas, tap into the skills of an instructor to improve their driving abilities or receive warnings about potential hazards or traffic jams for a better on-road experience.

Nissan was going for an “elevated sports sedan” design with the new IMs concept and, boy, does it show. This is an attention-grabbing, conversation-starting exterior that is athletic-looking and dynamic. It would definitely complement the existing lineup awesomely!
On the whole, the exterior of the Nissan IMs drops sculpted surfaces and instead adopts simplicity, opting for vertical and horizontal lines and eschewing the recent “floating roof” company-wide theme. Instead, a focus on the extended C-pillar and A-pillar areas results in a sleek design that lowers the drag coefficient. Minimal lift at higher speeds is achieved through the front spoiler, rocker panels, and a full-length undertray. Meanwhile, the roofline’s gold-colored anodized brushed aluminum rails are evocative of an eclipse-created ring of moonlight.
The V-motion design language is here—you can see it present in the grille-less front fascia via the headlamps’ shape and placement. The lighting design is thin yet bold and v-shaped, resulting in a progressive look. Additionally, the 22-inch wheel rims are eye-catching and wow-worthy, making the concept all the more sporty.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility’s efforts with the IMs represent a future wherein we move toward a sustainable mobile society that is driven by all-electric vehicles that specialize in autonomous capabilities. In fact, the IMs can go into a fully autonomous mode itself, although the manual mode’s attractions are nothing to sneeze at, either.
First, let’s discuss that manual mode. It enables the driver to go hands-on in a traditional fashion; however, there’s a boatload of advanced driver-assistance technologies at work here. All components and information are smartly integrated into a two-layer floating instrument-panel display that shows off all pertinent vehicle information while also giving a full, camera-fueled view of the world around the concept car whenever you call upon it. You’ll always know what’s going on around you!
Of course, things get really interesting when you switch over to the autonomous driving mode. The Nissan IMs’ steering wheel retracts, as do all the powertrain-related components, opening up the cabin and offering greater passenger area. The front seats pivot inward to face the back seats—smart! Additionally, the headlamps and taillights on the exterior turn blue and begin blinking, thereby notifying pedestrians of your vehicle status.
The game has been changed, Seattle! Earlier this week at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, Nissan stunned attendees with their Nissan IMs concept. While everyone in the audience knew the concept would be shown off, they still weren’t prepared for the enormity of what the innovative vehicle represents--it's like nothing else in our inventory. While we’ve done a bang-up job of bringing the initial details and specifications to you thus far, today we wanted to focus solely on performance.
This is an electric vehicle that is dead serious when it comes to generating power. The IMs is comprised of dual electric motors and a quick-charging 115 kWh battery. All told, 483 HP (360 kW) and 590 lb.-ft. (800 Nm) of torque are created, ensuring that there’s blow-your-hair-back performance to tap into despite the lack of gasoline. Also, a whopping 380-mile range is included.
The Nissan IMs concept also benefits from an all-wheel-drive system. This means that it’s poised across a variety of road surfaces and conditions, even if there is inclement weather. Traction and cornering performance are assured; plus, the advanced air suspension can adapt on-the-fly to driving situations. Impressive!
