Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Erick, Ian, Gurj, and Kal were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
I would definitely refer family and friends to shop here for a vehicle.
Competitive price and great service
We did our online research first before we went into the dealer. The sales were very attentive and friendly. We made the purchase on the same day!
So comfortable and easy!
These guys are the BEST! My Salesman, Peter was very helpful and not pushy, made my experience so great and easy. 20/10 recommend them to anyone!

My New Favourite Dealership!
My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable!
Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!
Great Kai and jag were awesome
Great. Worked with my schedual, very helpful. Got back to me fast about all my questions. And even went out a got a keepsake i forgot in my grade in.
Michael and Monina
The most seamless car buying experience with Peter Olson!
It was an awesome experience from the time we walked on the dealer lot to the time we drove home our car. Super friendly Ivan, super helpful Gurj and super salesman Peter!
Erick was very friendly and personable and it was a pleasure to do business with him. I would recommend him and Key West if you’re looking for a vehicle.
Happy with the Flex
Patient and Kind
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.
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington

Now that’s we’ve explored the IMs’ exterior, it’s time to look inside the interior of Nissan’s latest concept car, which is described as a timeless reflection into futurism and a new way of visualizing how commuters will travel in an autonomously driven world.
According to Nissan, the IMs’ interior draws its inspiration from a modern Japanese home, highlighted by examples of high-level craftsmanship with a high-tech expression. The colors and materials set an intimate mood that can be customized with light, plus the shapes of the instrument panel and door trim use dark fabrics and hues to mimic moonlight and shadow.
When in manual driving mode, the IMs' interior offers a driver-centric cockpit with advanced assistive technologies and multi-level information displays integrated into a simple interface. However, once switched into autonomous driving mode, the steering wheel retracts and the front seats pivot inward to face the innovative rear seating arrangement, characterized by the special "Premier Seat". With this formation, passengers can relax and engage with each other in lasting comfort, while the IMs commands the road.
Nissan’s latest concept car is another fine example of how the automaker is changing the way we integrate technology into our daily lives. To learn more about the IMs' interior and how it relates to our current line-up of vehicles, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

With news of Nissan’s IMs concept this week at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, our team at Kirkland Nissan wanted to delve deeper into the exterior looks of the vehicle, which is being categorized as an elevated sports sedan. And to be clear, this is not your granddad’s sedan or your pops’ sports car. The IMs follows an entirely new design language, boasting provocative proportions and unseen aerodynamics.
With sleek, sexy and seamless horizontal and vertical lines, the IMs forgoes a traditional sculpted body in favor of forward A-pillar and extended C-pillar locations, as well as a shape that creates a lower drag coefficient. Various body panels also appoint the concept to provide effective downforce and minimal lift at high speeds, including specially engineered fenders, a front spoiler, rocker panels and a full-length undertray. With a roofline inspired by the shape of the moon, the gold-colored anodized brushed aluminum roof rail accents mimic a ring of light that looks like an eclipse. Riding on aggressive 22-inch wheels and complemented by the IMs grille-less front fascia, the concept also features special headlights that are activated when the vehicle is in autonomous mode.
The IMs is truly unlike anything we’ve ever seen before – futuristic, yet simple; racy, yet pure. To learn more about the concept’s design language and how it relates to today’s Nissan vehicles, contact us in Seattle, Washington, to discuss.

Brace yourself, Seattle – just when you think you’ve seen it all, Nissan blows the cover off its latest concept vehicle that has taken the automotive industry by storm! Unveiled yesterday at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, the Nissan IMs ushers in an entirely new type of vehicle – and perhaps even a segment – that the automaker is calling an elevated sports sedan.
Closer in composition to a sedan than a crossover, the IMs sports a higher cabin height due to the battery’s location under the body of the electric vehicle. With an extended wheelbase, the length of the concept is also stretched and houses a unique “2+1+2" seating architecture, which boasts pivoting front seats and a rear seat that can fit three across, or customized to an indulgent "Premier Seat" when the rear outboard seats are folded.
Offering an autonomous driving mode and a manual driving mode, the IMs is a study of contrast that straddles the worlds of relaxed hands-free operation with exciting high-performance. The advanced powertrain is comprised of dual electric motors (front and rear) and a fast charging 115 kWh battery that generates 483 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, which is enough power to compete with (and surpass) most modern-day sports cars. The concept vehicle can also travel a full 380 miles on a single charge, which is a huge achievement in and of itself, plus it features all-wheel drive for better weight balance, traction and cornering.

Kirkland, Nissan really had something to crow about this past December and you’re a big part of it.
Nissan Group this week announced their total U.S. sales for December 2018, and the results were staggeringly positive. The automaker sold a total of 148,720 units in that month alone—an increase of 7.6-percent over the prior year during the same time period. Overall calendar year sales in the U.S. hit 1,493,877 cars.
As we dial down more, there’s additional positive news to cover. Nissan Rogue sales also saw improvement, setting an all-time monthly record in December by moving 42,523 units (a six-percent increase over the same period in 2017). The exciting Kicks crossover also saw its best month since its launch, selling 5,704 units. Plus, the Murano saw a boost in sales (7 percent), while the Frontier truck found a new home in 7,492 garages in December—a 27-percent increase over the prior year’s sales. Rounding it all out was the company’s exciting all-electric vehicle, the LEAF, which saw an increase of a whopping 31-percent!
Nissan Intelligent Mobility is set to shake up the world at the upcoming 2019 North American International Auto Show. The future is about to arrive, Tacoma!
While every major car show tends to be a special occasion for Nissan, this one is a bit different. The next evolution of their Intelligent Mobility platform is set to debut, gifting customers around the globe a look at exciting concept cars as well as the latest production vehicles currently in circulation at dealerships around the country. Innovations will be in full effect, as they follow up on recent releases and reveals that include the tremendous Leaf e+ and Invisible-to-Invisible technology concept (you can check our latest posts on this page for more on each of those).
We’ll have a full report for you after the event concludes; however, if you’re determined to catch all the exciting news yourself, you can watch the conference live. Nissan is hosting a stream of their presser on their YouTube channel as well as via their Twitter. The 2019 NAIAS starts its engines on January 19 and runs through the 27th at Detroit’s Cobo Center.
Nissan is up to some pretty neat stuff, Kirkland residents. Through using a special tool called the Xenon Weather-Ometer (XWO), the auto manufacturer is able to examine material durability in different climates and situations, including while undergoing sunlight UV exposure tests.
In an effort to determine the effects of solar energy on paint, plastics, and certain interior car materials, the XWO tool utilizes the assistance of a 4,000-watt Xenon bulb that bakes as many as 100 different colored samples at the same time. This bulb mimics the wavelengths of the sun. Further, the samples actually rotate around the Xenon light during testing, mimicking the earth’s orbit. Once finished, the Nissan engineers check the materials at different intervals to detect any changes, thereby helping to ensure quality and durability down the line for auto buyers.
In sum, the brilliance of the XWO tool and the accelerated weather chamber used is that Nissan is capable of accurately recreating real-world, natural conditions in a lab environment. They’re therefore able to ensure their quality standards are truly second-to-none.

Nissan went to great lengths to make the new Leaf e+ the most innovative, powerful and tech-rich all-electric vehicle on mainstream roads today. They also tweaked the award-winning design of the Leaf to be even sleeker and more modern than ever before.
Starting around the front, the e+ boasts a contoured silhouette and eye-catching exterior elements for greater styling and aerodynamic efficiency. The EV's bold fascia features Nissan's signature V-Motion grille with a blue 3D mesh insert for added interest and form. The car's streamlined profile is also sleek and sporty, while around the back the Leaf e+ wears a distinctive taillight design and new badging to highlight the various trim levels.
Inside, the e+’s cabin takes all that’s good from the current model year Leaf and further enhances it with vibrant blue contrast stitching on the steering wheel, seats and instrument panel. The interior remains spacious and well-appointed with premium features for a high-class appeal, but with a tech-focused attitude that’s tastefully futuristic.
The Leaf e+ will be made available in three well-equipped trims (S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS) later this spring. To learn more about its design and features, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a preliminary spec preview.

If you are looking for a high-tech and enriched driving experience, the future is almost here, Seattle, with the upcoming release of the Nissan Leaf e+ later this spring. According to the automaker, the e+ will boast an updated interface, larger display and convenient enhancements for even more pleasure behind the wheel.
Starting with the dash, the e+ will be anchored by a larger, thin-film transistor, full-color 8-inch display with swiping, scrolling and tapping commands. Drivers will also have the ability to update apps, maps and firmware in the car with a touch of a button versus having to make an in-dealership appointment. A new feature called Door-to-Door Navigation will also be available on the e+. It will let drivers sync the Leaf's navigation system with their smartphone for seamless directions. When passengers ride in the vehicle, the Connections feature will enable them to quickly and easily connect their devices as well. Lastly, a convenient graphic-based Human Machine Interface complements the NissanConnect smartphone app and allow users to monitor or schedule charging, find the nearest charging station or heat/cool their vehicle from the comfort of their home or office.
Are you ready for a whole new driving experience, Seattle? Get excited for the Leaf e+ and its enhanced driver tech! To learn more about the forthcoming model and its specs, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for details.

Following the news of Nissan’s forthcoming Leaf e+ electric vehicle, which will launch later this spring, our team wanted to take the opportunity to share more about the EV’s enhanced driver assist and safety features. If you were hoping to see ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal on the e+, good news – both are standard equipment, along with other advanced technologies.
ProPILOT Assist is a key player in Nissan’s Intelligent Driving strategy. This system is described as an in-lane semi-autonomous driving technology that can automatically adjust the distance to the vehicle ahead or help keep the Leaf centered in its lane. If the car in front stops, ProPILOT Assist will automatically apply the brakes to bring the vehicle to a halt – it will even keep the vehicle in place if the driver’s foot is off the brake. When traffic restarts, the e+ will resume when the driver touches the steering wheel-mounted ProPILOT Assist switch again or lightly presses the accelerator. The goal of the system is to reduce stress when behind the wheel, especially in high-traffic situations.
Further enhancing the Leaf's on-road experience is e-Pedal, which allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal. With the e+’s additional power and increased mass, Nissan reprogrammed the e-Pedal software for smoother operation and enhanced pedal feedback, which is especially beneficial when maneuvering the vehicle in reverse. Other advanced technologies on the e+ will include Intelligent Lane Intervention, Lane Departure Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking, as well as Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Intelligent Around View Monitor.

This week, Nissan lifted the cover off some huge news. The automaker will be releasing the Leaf e+ later this year and it will sport an all-new electric powertrain with additional range and power.
The name “e+” refers to the EV’s increased energy density from the model's 62 kWh battery pack and the higher output of its powertrain. Combined, the e+ can travel up to 226 miles on a single charge, which is a big increase over the current model’s 150-mile range. Three trims will be made available: S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS.
The higher capacity battery will also be complemented by a more potent 160 kW motor, which will produce 45 percent more power and 250 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration will be quicker too, jetting from 50 mph to 75 mph nearly 13 percent faster. According to Nissan, top speeds will increase by approximately 10 percent, making way for more comfortable highway cruising. As for charging, it will be managed by a new 70 kW Quick Charge System, which won’t require any additional time over the current model, even with the 55-percent larger battery storage capacity.
U.S. sales of the Leaf e+ are expected to begin in spring 2019. For more information, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.
