Everyone from sales (Jack Campbell) to the financing (michelle) process was extremely pleasurable. They helped me a first time truck buyer through a complicated process and made it easy. I felt appreciated and that it was an honest and trustworthy environment. I will be using them for all my vehicle purchases and trade ins moving forward.
Pete Olson was the best
Pete made buying a vehicle so pleasant and easy. I haven’t bought many vehicles in my life but I’ve heard car salesmen can sometimes be bad to deal with. Not in this case. Pete was one of the nicest guys I’ve met, and really knew his stuff about vehicles. He even came in on his day off to make sure I got what I needed and make sure he was there when I was able to drive off the lot. I highly recommend Key West Ford, and especially Pete Olson.
Quick, easy, and personable!
Erick was a pleasure to deal with, this was my first time purchasing a vehicle, and Erick made it very easy! I was worried going into the dealership as I was unsure of what to expect; however Erick had my best interest and was very attentive to what I was looking for. If you ever drop by this dealership I would highly recommend dealing with Erick!! He will make it his mission to get you exactly what you are searching for, at the best prices!
Very friendly and knowledgable
We went to dealership looking for a specific vehicle and found exactly that, no pressure to upsell. Sales, finance, and insurance team were friendly and efficient.
A big thanks to key west Team!!
I would like to thank you the team off key west ford ,in special Kai and Nick for the great help .

First car finance Easy as 1 2 3
I have given Key West Ford 5 star’s because they are very professional and they alway checked back up on me multiple times after financing my first vehicle !
Overall the experience was good with Key ford west and the person who made the sale happen was Peter Olson. He wasn’t pushy in a direct manner and gave us the space to make a decisions. He also was able to handle some bumps during the sales process and provided great customer care.
Erick is great
Pleasurable experience buying a vehicle from Erick must reccomend contacting him especially if you are from out of town like myself. I contacted Erick through the website he was professional and easy to deal with. The dealership went above and beyond all expectations.

Peter was so helpful with the purchase of my sons first vehicle. He was very knowledgeable and genuinely wanted us to be happy. Thank you Pete for all your help!
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
(Posted on Mar 30, 2019 at 01:30PM by Danielle Smyth)
At the beginning of March, Nissan rolled out its IMQ SUV concept at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.
Multiple electric motors will be used to create all-wheel drive, and the battery pack is designed to provide 335 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Whether this marks Nissan’s entry into the fully electric SUV market or will be another hybrid wasn’t clear.
Motor Authority’s Sean Szymkowski said the IMQ has “a more fluid look than, say, the IMx concept from 2017.” In keeping with “the futuristic theme, the IMQ boasts Nissan's Invisible-to-Visible technology, which incorporates augmented reality, along with a virtual personal assistant and a prototype version of the ProPilot Assist system.”

Yes, you read that right – Nissan just broke another Guinness World Records title for the largest synchronized car dance. We bet you didn’t even know that such an event existed – well, it does!
According to The Drive, Nissan’s Middle Eastern division used 180 Patrol SUVs in two concentric lines to create a giant dancing falcon – the national symbol of the UAE – measuring 225 metres in length and 176.5 metres in width. The formation, which covered a total distance of 1,476 metres, was held at Dubai’s Rugby 7s stadium and led by Zimbabwean driver Axyl Jeffries.
See it in action here:
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time that the Nissan Patrol has broken a world record – rather, it’s the vehicle’s third time since its sixth generation was released just eight years ago. In September 2015, the car broke the record for the fastest ascent of a 100-meter sand dune by a car, scaling the hill in only 4.9 seconds. And two years earlier, in August 2013, the Patrol successfully towed the world’s heaviest aircraft for more than 164 feet at the Sharjah International Airport in the UAE.
Incredible, right? Perhaps this might inspire you to complete a similar attempt in the Armada, which is the North American equivalent of the Patrol. To learn more, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

Ten days and 1,600 miles later, Sedona Blinson and Leah Heffelfinger of Team Wild Grace crossed the Rebelle Rally’s finish line in San Diego in their 2018 Nissan Armada, which the duo affectionately called “Babe.” Out of 41 competitors, the mothers turned off-road navigation rally car drivers placed 11th in the competition.
"Babe" competed in the Bonestock category, which highlights stock, unmodified vehicles to provide a platform within the 4×4 and Crossover classes. In an interview, Heffelfinger noted that fellow competitors originally were surprised to see the Armada alongside other 4x4 Bonestock entries, but by the end of the race, many had a newfound respect for the Armada's capabilities.
"The Bonestock category was designed to prove that the vehicle in your driveway is more capable than you think it is, and the Armada proved exactly that," said the competitor. "'Babe' proved to be a powerhouse, dominating whoops, crawling up large and rocky hill climbs with ease in 4-Low. The fact that we came in 11th of 41 vehicles proves the Armada is every bit as capable as its competitors."
Nothing on the Armada was modified for this competition, except for the Nitto Ridge Grappler tires that it was riding on. Inside the cabin, the SUV’s spacious interior, remote engine start system, power liftgate and front and rear seat heaters made the tough off-roading adventure more comfortable for the drivers. It was an exhausting 10-day marathon for the women, but one that was made that much more pleasant in the well-equipped Armada.
On behalf of our team here at Kirkland Nissan, we congratulate Team Wild Grace for the impressive finish! To learn more about the Armada’s off-road power, contact our team to schedule a test drive.

Last week, the 2018 Rebelle Rally kicked off in Lake Tahoe, California, as teams began the 10-day women's-only trek across California and Nevada to reach the finish line in San Diego. Over the course of the competition, drivers will traverse 1,500 miles of rough, punishing terrain in the off-road navigation rally race.
Team Wild Grace, led by Sedona Blinson and Leah Heffelfinger, are seeking victory behind the wheel of a 2018 Nissan Armada Platinum. The two met at the Overland Expo West five years ago and ran the 2017 Rebelle Rally with a Nissan Frontier PRO-X. While both agreed that the Frontier’s smaller size was perfect for the diverse terrain in last year’s race, they are particularly eager to pilot the Armada, which prioritizes both comfort and capability. The SUV also traces its roots back to the Nissan Patrol and is known as the “King of the Desert”, which is ideal given the terrain of this rally.
Blinson and Heffelfinger’s 2018 Armada Platinum is fully stock except for the Nitto Ridge Grappler tires that it is riding on, which are designed for gripping sand and hauling through the desert. The vehicle is also wrapped in a custom-designed skin by IF Signs. Over the course of the rally, the two will spend up to 13 hours in the Armada, relying on rudimentary maps, compasses and digital cameras to find their way across some of North America’s most challenging and scenic territory.
Will they be victorious? Team Wild Grace is certainly equipped with the best vehicle for the job! To learn more about the Armada’s off-road potency, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to go for a test drive.
It’s a terrible miscalculation. You agreed to join the PTA carpool circuit, certain that your sedan would prove ready for the task. As you stare at a long row of children, however, you realize that there’s simply not enough… space. A five-passenger configuration can’t accommodate this rowdy bunch, and you wonder precisely how you’re meant to proceed.
We suggest recruiting another parent to help… and then driving to our dealership. The 2018 Armada Platinum awaits!
As the Tennessee Tribune explains, the Armada Platinum proves perfect for the carpool crowd - boasting an expansive eight-passenger cabin. Its extended frame (which measures 208.9.-inches in length, 79.9-inches in width, and 75.8-inches in height - yields custom spatial options, combining split-fold seating with a bevy of cargo features. Slide inside and discover:
Front Row Dimensions: 39.8-inches (headroom), 41.9-inches (legroom).
Second Row Dimensions: 40-inches (headroom), 41-inches (legroom).
Third Row Dimensions: 36.4-inches (headroom), 28.4-inches (legroom).
Fold-down bench seating features one-touch control, with its integrated Tip-Up technology allowing passengers to effortlessly slip into the second and third rows. Cushion pockets pair with slide-out trays for quick storage solutions, while under-mounted compartments house large items (including sporting bags) with ease. Eight tie-down hooks prove crucial for hanging drama club costumes and overstuffed lunch boxes; and eight beverage holders ensure that each rider can stay hydrated.
The 2018 Armada Platinum is designed for everyday convenience - marking it ideal for busy families. To learn more contact us today!
Safety now proves standard for the sport utility market - with Nissan fusing its entire Armada fleet (the SV, SL, Platinum, and Platinum Reserve) with Automatic Emergency Braking. This system will redefine driver security, delivering both automated responses and peace of mind.
According to The Drive, the 2019 Armada has been fused with advanced protection. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) releases radar signals across the roadway - generating precise 3D maps of the surrounding area. Through this, it can instantly identify sudden changes in both traffic patterns or the terrain (such as approaching pedestrians). Sensors immediately send this data to the center console, determining which of the two available strategies to use if a collision proves likely:
Audio and visual warnings are streamed through the eight-inch touchscreen - immediately alerting drivers to the potential danger and allowing them to decelerate.
Should no action be taken by the operator, the Armada's AEB system will instead engage the brakes itself - decreasing speed and controlling the steering column. This will help to mitigate a crash.
Through the standardization of Automatic Emergency Braking Nissan allows families to more securely explore the Lynnwood streets - bolstering every mile with seamless radar support.
To learn more about this safety system contact our dealership today.
It’s a stop-and-go world. Around you cars push forward, slam to a halt, and hurry to repeat the pattern - with their drivers anxious to escape the highway. You find yourself surrounded by fickle speeds and frantic trajectories; and worry settles deep within your bones. How will you maneuver through this madness?
We suggest relying on the 2019 Armada Platinum’s Intelligent Cruise Control system.
As The Drive explains, the new Armada is ready for even the wildest traffic patterns. Bolstering its chassis is Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) technology. This system delivers superior acceleration - with radar sensors mounted along the front bumper. These yield real-time scans, instantly mapping both forward traffic speeds and road conditions (including inclines, curves, and lane deviations). This information is then fed into a brake actuator, which assesses all data and creates viable response strategies:
If the following distance between the Armada and the preceding vehicle is considered too dangerous, acceleration will be slowed to assure further inches.
If the vehicle ahead comes to a sudden stop, the brakes will automatically engage to allow for a smooth stall.
If a change in terrain is detected, a gentle deceleration will be applied - with the steering column and ABS functions both activated to mitigate sudden rolls.
Through these responses, the ICC system allows the Armada Platinum to adapt to every moment - bringing true confidence to the Bellevue market.

It’s a series of payload demands - with a trailer stacked with cargo and a cabin filled with summer gear. An SUV is stuffed with boxes, bags, and luggage bursting at the seams; and still more items sit in your driveway, waiting to be loaded. You bite your lip, uncertain of just… how your ride will handle the weight of an off-road adventure. Its weak engine will surely sputter from the strain.
According to Automoblog, the 2019 Armada SV will soon arrive in Everett - and it promises class-leading performance. Beneath its hood discover a 5.6L Endurance V8, which generates a potent 390 HP (at 5,800 RPMs) and 394 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPMs). Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology provides increased intake capabilities, while an electronic drive-by-wire throttle enhances the ignition sequence. A seven-speed automatic transmission boasts a low-range gear ratio (2.937:1) to eliminate troublesome downshifting; and an independent double-wishbone suspension frames both the front and rear, utilizing auto-leveling functions to maximize trailer traction on unsteady terrains.
When these elements engage, they enable the 2019 SV to produce exceptional strength - effortlessly accommodating up to 8,500 pounds of conventional towing and a payload capacity of 1,724 pounds. No cargo will prove too great a challenge for this V8 beast.

The Armada also comes equipped with many family-friendly standard features, such as NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM, an 8-inch multi-touch control display, HD Radio, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, and additional USB ports across all grade levels. What’s more, the 2018 Amada also boasts an Intelligent Rear View Mirror, which uses a high-resolution camera mounted on the back of the vehicle to project a clear image onto an LCD monitor built into the standard rearview mirror. Obstacles won’t risk your safety in this SUV.

Big adventures demand equally big performance - which is why Nissan is delivering the ultimate crossover experience to Washington. Prepare, Burien, for the arrival of the 2018 Armada Mountain Patrol.
As the Focus Daily News explains, the Mountain Patrol yields exceptional power on the Washington backroads. This Armada variant is anchored by 5.6L Endurance V8 engine, which promises 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission delivers a dynamic low-to-high gear range, effortlessly adapting to changing inclines; while a Magnaflow exhaust system promotes superior intake levels (it’s been tuned for heavy-duty hauls). A coil-over suspension, complete with extended A-arms, lets the platform glide over every terrain; and Nitro Ridge all-season tires tear through dust and rocks alike.
This growling SUV can adapt to any environment... and it can also ensure that each ATV toy is brought along for the ride. Haul up to 8,000 pounds, taking advantage of front-mounted tow hooks and a fully-boxed steel frame.
