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!

Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
It’s been a busy 2017 Tokyo Motor Show for Nissan. The Japanese car manufacturer has unveiled the next-gen LEAF, a new fully autonomous driving system due for 2020 and, not to be overlooked, a fresh take on the modern delivery vehicle. The e-NV200 Fridge Concept van is set to change the way companies in the restaurant and hospitality sectors do business.
Nissan has endeavored to solve urban delivery challenges with the e-NV200. Their solution? A more compact van that maneuvers swiftly and easily through urban locales. Further, the zero-emissions vehicle has a self-powered refrigeration unit that makes chilled food storage a cinch.
The all-electric nature of the e-NV200 will mark a boon for commercial customers, as gas savings will reduce the cost of ownership across the life of the automobile. The van will be stocked with a lithium-ion battery that produces 24 kWh to generate speed and acceleration, while there will be a separate 12 kWh pack solely to power the e-Fridge.
We encourage you to give us here at Kirkland Nissan of Seattle a call at any time if you’re interested in learning more about commercial vans.
Only days ago, Nissan took to the roads of Tokyo in a public display of their design and engineering prowess. Piloting a prototype vehicle, the manufacturer showed off their most advanced autonomous driving system ever—and it’s scheduled for real-world deployment in Seattle and elsewhere in 2020.
Nissan’s next-generation ProPILOT technology builds upon the current system employed in the Nissan LEAF, X-Trail, Rogue, and Serena. The upcoming version, however, will go beyond simple single-lane autonomous driving. Instead, the new standard will enable such cruising on multi-lane urban streets and even highways.
Next-gen ProPILOT will ferry passengers automatically to their destination from start (when they enter the location in their navigation system) to finish, no matter the roads involved. It will manage this tremendous feat through the utilization of six laser scanners, nine millimeter-wave radars, 12 cameras and sonars each, and a high-definition map used to navigate through rapidly changing traffic patterns. Software optimizations will also allow for real-time adjustments to any obstacles in your path.
It’s almost here. The masterminds at Nissan have taken the wraps off the 2018 LEAF, and boy, does this all-electric vehicle have the makings of a true classic. From a thoughtfully reconsidered exterior to a massively upgraded engine, this car is ready to take the States by storm.
There are a number of substantive changes to the exterior that make a great automobile even better. The attractive, chrome Nissan “V-Motion” front design makes the cut for this upcoming generation’s LEAF. The grille itself is finished in a 3D-ish geometric blue pattern that is futuristic and eye-catching. And other changes are functional as opposed to purely aesthetic, with the new hood’s “ribs” and curves offering greater aerodynamics.
The improvements don’t stop at the exterior, however. Motor Trend dove into the particulars of the new engine, calling it a “marathon multiple-organ transplant.” Now, the electric power plant provides 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. This is a big boost from the prior model year’s 107 and 187-lb.-ft., respectively!
The newly-announced 2018 Nissan LEAF represents an overhaul of the already stellar all-electric vehicle. Fresh technology on the model, including the ProPILOT Assist feature, pushes this EV to bold heights and looks poised to change the way Seattle drives.
While there are many new technologies included in the 2018 Nissan LEAF, one at the forefront of incredible engineering is the aforementioned ProPILOT Assist functionality. It’s an autonomous driving mode that uses Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) to sense and respond to vehicles around the car. Specifically, once the driver sets a speed, the system will adjust that setting depending on how automobiles around it are moving.
ProPILOT Assist is more than just your typical intelligent cruise control, however. It also automatically handles vehicle steering, keeping the LEAF properly centered within the lane it’s traveling through. With this kind of futuristic tech, it’s no wonder that Asako Hoshino, head of Nissan Japan operations, says that the car has received more than 9,000 preorders in that country alone thus far.
Nissan is upping the ante with their concept for the LEAF NISMO, a supercharged version of the all-electric vehicle that aims to thrill driving enthusiasts everywhere.
Revealed at Tokyo Motor Show 2017, details are still a bit light, but we’ve been able to glean some intriguing likely specs from the car’s appearance and Nissan’s official release. Tentatively slated for the 2019 model year with a delivery as early as fall 2018, this new LEAF will incorporate NISMO racing tech into its black, white and red body for greater aerodynamics and decreased lift. High-performance Continental summer tires will also be featured on the exterior.
The interior, which will boast aggressive red accents, brings its own technology aimed at making this a race-worthy EV. A new sport-tuned suspension distinguishes it from the regular 2018 LEAF, as does a specially-calibrated computer that aims to make instant acceleration at any speed a reality. Further, it seems likely that both a punchier motor and more advanced battery are in the works, the latter of which may provide approx. 60 kWh and a 225-mile range.

Great news for plow operators in Seattle!
Nissan recently announced that the 2018 Titan XD full-size pickup will be offered with a new Snow Plow Prep Package this fall. It will be available for use with a range of commercial and personal equipment manufacturers, including Boss, Fisher, Meyer, SnowEx and Western.
This package replaces the stock front springs with a higher capacity design, which increases front gross axle weight rating (GAWR) by 575 pounds (from 4,325 pounds to 4,900 pounds). This allows fitment of snow plows up to 786 pounds, and is compatible with all three TITAN XD V8 gas body configurations (Single Cab, King Cab and Crew Cab) and on S and SV grade levels.
With the amount of precipitation being predicted for the Pacific Northwest this winter, now is a great time for individual and commercial plow operators to consider adding a 2018 TITAN XD to their fleet. Not only does this pickup offer the effortless towing and hauling of larger heavy-duty trucks, but it’s also fuel-efficient, affordable and loaded with some nice creature comforts.
To learn more about the upcoming 2018 Titan XD and its available options, contact Kirkland Nissan today or browse our online inventory to see which 2017 models we currently have in stock.
At the 45th Tokyo Motor Show only days ago, Nissan revealed their IMx all-electric autonomous crossover concept, based on technology scheduled for a 2020 arrival. We’ve spoken of the amazing nature of the machine’s ability to effortlessly switch between the manual, human-driven mode and the ProPILOT self-driving function, but let’s really dig into the power and performance details of this amazing future vehicle.
Two high-output electric engines—one at the front and one at the back of the automobile—bestow the IMx concept with its incredible speed and overall performance. Together, the motors offer 700 Nm (newton meters) of torque and 320 kW of power, building upon what the manufacturer has learned with the LEAF. All this, of course, is delivered silently and efficiently, without the grunting and wheezing of conventional gasoline alternatives. Additionally, this crossover sports a battery that’s been redesigned specifically for higher energy density. You’ll receive approximately 370 miles of driving range as you journey around Renton, Bellevue, and Seattle!
There’s more, though. The IMx is designed to mimic a high-performance vehicle. It boasts a low center of gravity for great responsiveness through curves and turns. Also, the platform’s rigidity keeps the driver connected to the streets with a wonderful on-road feel.
Nissan is poised to deliver the future of automobiles sooner than many may have anticipated. Revealed at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the IMx all-electric autonomous crossover concept is at the forefront of the company’s Intelligent Power Initiative, due for introduction to the masses beginning in 2020.
The Nissan LEAF, of course, offers ProPILOT technology, but the IMx concept takes it further. It provides entirely autonomous driving—no human intervention or effort required! It works via a simple mode selection. When you want to kick back and relax, select PD Mode. This hides away the steering wheel and automatically reclines all seats as the computer takes over and guides passengers to their destination. Conversely, if you want to take matters into your own hands, you need only choose Manual Drive (MD Mode) to reverse the aforementioned changes and regain full control of the vehicle.
Nissan is touting just how simple this all is via its Human Machine Interface. Selecting either ProPILOT Drive or Manual Drive modes is as easy as making the switch via the PD Commander. This is conveniently arranged directly on the center console and can also be activated via voice control.
In conjunction with the reveal of two new electric concept vehicles at Tokyo Motor Show 2017, Nissan has formally announced their intention to join Formula E for the 2018-2019 season. This pledge is exciting news for racing car and EV enthusiasts everywhere and stands to give the manufacturer a global platform to show off their design prowess.
The two new zero-emission concepts—the LEAF Nismo and IMx crossover—represent Nissan’s big all-electric plans and their push for intelligent mobility. The former car, specifically, represents the manufacturer’s engineering sophistication as it announces its plans to enter Formula E racing. It will offer a sportier suspension, Continental summer tires, and recalibrated tuning that aims to improve the availability of the original machine’s 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. As a result, the vehicle will be more lively and responsive.
Nissan will become the first Japanese car maker to enter the racing championships. Competing in season 5 of Formula E in late 2018, the manufacturer (along with other participants) will for the first time be able to develop a substantial portion of the vehicle’s electric powertrain components. While all contestants must still utilize the same chassis, it will be a fresh one that differs from that featured this December for season 4.
