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!
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
(Posted on Mar 30, 2019 at 01:21PM by Danielle Smyth)
Before designing the ultimate work truck, Nissan polled thousands of Habitat for Humanity volunteers nationwide to find out what they really wanted in a work truck to help in their mission of creating affordable housing.
The three top “wants” were: off-road capability; lockable storage bins and easily accessed tools for the truck bed; and an interior that can function like the mobile office it needs to be.
Nissan got to work customizing one of its Nissan Titan XDs (Cummins V8 diesel version). With the addition of tons of lockable tool boxes, Bedslide rails, a 3-inch lift kit, a winch, and LED work lights, the truck bed was done. The tool boxes were equipped with a chop saw, an air compressor, and a drill kit. With Icon wheels and bigger Nitto tires, Habitat’s Titan can go pretty much anywhere. And with the inclusion of a laptop and printer plus reconfiguring the back seat as a mobile office with not just a desk but filing cabinets, the volunteers’ wish list was complete.
After a brief appearance at the Indianapolis Work Truck Show, the customized Titan was donated to Habitat for Humanity. Nissan’s donated more than 150 trucks and $16.9 million to the housing charity since 2005.
Sedans promise economy; mini-vans offer comfort; and hatchbacks deliver convenience, with their five-door profiles accommodating every storage need. Each of these platforms boasts value for Seattle drivers… except on the backroads. There they all fail, yielding weak responses and slow control.
This is why Nissan recommends its 2018 Titan XD PRO-4X - a pick-up that has been tailored for adventure.
As JD Power explains, the new Titan XD adapts to every terrain. 18-inch alloy wheel deliver all-season traction and deep treading, allowing the truck to push past all obstacles. Bilstein shocks anchor the chassis, pairing high-capacity springs with a double-wishbone suspension to ensure smooth handling; while a solid front axle provides a stable ride. Skid plates line the undercarriage, protecting both the transfer case and radiator from debris; and LED lighting systems frame the fascia and cargo-bed alike to offer 360-degree illumination. This lets drivers quickly identify the safest paths while traveling.
To further improve performance, the 2018 PRO-4X also features an available lift kit. This yields an additional three inches of height, with adjustable coil-over shocks bolstering the suspension. Ground clearance is increased and Seattle adventurers can more easily tackle rough terrains (rocks, river beds, and deep ruts will no longer prove a concern).
The 2018 Titan XD PRO-4X provides impressive off-road capability - making it an ideal option for those who crave more than highway experiences. To learn more about this truck contact us today.
Technology is a forgotten guest at the house of power and performance - with its digital offerings ignored and its Hi-Fi sounds muffled. It earns no seat at the table, and it’s greeted with no smile (unlike its V8 siblings and solid axle cousins).
Nissan believes this to be unfair, however - and so it’s redefined the rules of pick-up etiquette. Technology will no longer be overlooked by the market. Instead the 2018 Titan XD S will fully embrace it.
As JD Power explains, the Titan XD S has been tailored for a new generation of half-ton drivers - with Nissan emphasizing infotainment with every mile. Anchoring the revised tech suite is a high-definition 5.0-inch display screen, which yields voice-activated interfacing and capacitive swipe-to-zoom functionality (easily access custom applications, like Pandora or Yelp). Wireless Bluetooth links power every smartphone and tablet, ensuring quick connectivity; while a four-speaker sound system delivers crisp notes from the AM/FM stereo. An integrated USB port further enhances content options, allowing users to sync their favorite files directly to the truck. Upload music, audio books, and more with the press of a button.
With the release of the 2018 Titan XD S, Nissan provides more than mere technology. It also accommodates everyday digital needs - with its center console delivering a wide-mouth design that can house a 15-inch laptop. Bringing your devices along for the ride has never been easier.
No longer compromise infotainment for power. Instead allow Nissan to provide a comprehensive highway experience.
For further information about the 2018 Titan XD S contact us today.
Beyond the pavement waits adventure - with the roads fanning out from Seattle, leading toward hidden coastal trails and forgotten mountain terrains. Exploration proves endless… and difficult; and your wheezing pick-up simply can’t accommodate these strange new miles. It huffs, puffs, and then sags in defeat.
Nissan believes it’s time for an upgrade.
The 2018 Titan XD has made its Seattle debut - and, according to the JD team, it proves a worthy addition to every expedition. Bolstered by an exclusive 4x4 transfer case system, this truck can traverse any terrain. It utilizes an advanced power-band to evenly distribute torque between the wheels, with sensors assessing changing environmental conditions (such as snow, mud, or sand) and identifying the correct gear ratio for each. This ensures seamless off-road management, with the V8 engine tuned to each specific mile.
To further enhance performance, the new Titan XD also boasts a suite of driver-assistance features. Descent control regulates speed on sharp inclines, monitoring both the steering column and the wheels to ensure stable motions. A limited-slip differential anchors the brakes, increasing all ABS responses to improve grippage; while hill start technology optimizes engine revs, allowing the truck to more efficiently climb. There is no road that can’t be conquered.
Standard no longer proves ordinary - with Nissan fusing its 2018 Titan XD fleet with a comprehensive suite of safety features. This half-ton platform redefines security on the highway, connecting drivers to intuitive technologies and peerless control. Fear the miles no more.
As Car and Driver explains, the 2018 Titan XD hosts a bevy of advanced standard features - ensuring that every trim level (from the S to the Platinum Reserve) offers superior support. Anchoring the platform is an airbag suite, which combines roof-mounted curtain inflatables with dual-stage front supplementals. These utilize rollover sensors to ensure precise engagement, greatly reducing the effect of every impact. Electronic traction control maintains stability, countering uneven terrain with gyroscopic monitoring and an active limited brake slip: both of which work in tandem to assess, and respond to, changing inclines. A tire notification system warns of waning pressure levels, while three-point ALR seat-belts boast integrated load limiters to promote secure rides. These will deliver a series of chiming alerts if the pretensioners are compromised.
To further improve each rev, the 2018 Titan XD also boasts a four-wheel brake system - which utilizes both vented technologies and force distribution to bolster stoppage. Together, they enhance the anti-lock speed, allowing the truck to more efficiently respond to the press of a pedal. This allows the tires to smoothly engage.
With the release of the 2018 Titan XD, Nissan brings class-leading features to Seattle. To learn more about this pick-up contact our team today.
Chic proves an unfamiliar word within the half-ton dictionary. Bulky lines and heavy panels instead define each truck - with drivers resigning themselves to a less than refined style.
With the release of the 2018 Titan XD, Nissan seeks to shatter this expectation - delivering a pick-up that proves both brawny and beautiful. No compromise is needed.
According to Car and Driver, the 2018 Titan XD is masterfully designed. Its lean profile - 242.7-inches long, 79.5-inches wide, and 78-inches high - brands it as unique in the segment, with its main competitors (the Ford F-150 and RAM 2500) proving hulking in comparison. 17-inch silver-painted steel wheels deliver five-spoke styling, while skid plates line the undercarriage. A chrome grille offers hexagonal mesh inserts; LED daytime running lights line the front; and black-capped mirrors feature wide angle-lenses and extendable bars, anchoring the sleek side panels.
The 2018 Titan XD also boasts available rocker moldings and running boards. These emphasize the truck’s athletic design, drawing eyes to the high-arched wheel wells and slim side panels.
Nissan believes that drivers deserve more than mere power (though none can deny the potency of the XD’s 5.6L V8, which yields 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft of torque). This pick-up proves ready to steal the spotlight with every mile.
The battle seem predetermined - with critics sliding into their seats, underwhelmed as they watched the competitors enter the arena. The Toyota Tundra, they were certain, would win this fight. It boasted a legacy of power, and no newcomer could defeat it… especially the Nissan Titan. This would be quick event.
It was - but the ending was quite different than anticipated.
As Forbes explains, the 2018 Titan stole the crown from Toyota - delivering a better pick-up experience. During an exhaustive comparison, this half-ton platform reigned supreme in key performance categories, including: style, handling, and cabin design. It delivered a fluid ride, emphasizing driver comfort and all-terrain capability; and not even the venerable Tundra could surpass it.
Forbes appreciates the bold design of the 2018 Titan - noting its powerful frame (229-inches long, 81-inches wide, 77-inches high) and imposing wheel-arches. Chrome detailing highlights the active grille shutters, while a removable front aero spoiler delivers a sporty effect.
Anchored by a seven-speed automatic transmission, the Titan ensures nimble responses. Its RWD provides precise traction distribution, utilizing the 18-inch steel wheels to optimum effect; while a switch-operated transfer case yields crisp control, automatically engaging the available 4x4 to modulate both speed and cornering.
Comfort often proves forgotten in the pick-up market - but the 2018 Titan allows drivers to indulge in every adventure. Leather seats blend power lumbar support with available climate-control technologies, while dual-zone air conditioning promotes precise temperatures. The expansive six-passenger cabin further impresses, offering up to 41.8-inches of legroom.
With the release of the 2018 Titan, Nissan has proven itself to be a true market contender - and it’s left the Tundra in the dust.
It seems the smallest of dimensions - a mere three inches. What good, you wonder, could such a so-called upgrade provide?
Nissan is quick to remind Seattle drivers that bigger doesn’t always prove better - and sometimes the tiniest of improvements can yield massive effects. Get ready for the newly enhanced 2018 Titan XD!
According to CNET, the 2018 Titan XD will now offer an exclusive suspension lift kit - which will add three inches to the chassis. While this number seems (at first) to be less than impressive, Nissan explains that the platform already boasts a 79-inch height. It leads the half-ton pack and, with this upgrade, it will only further assert its dominance on the backroads.
By adding three inches to the suspension, Nissan will improve overall water wading capabilities - allowing the Titan to more efficiently navigate Washington’s coastal trails. It will also increase stability, with the kit utilizing both coil-over shock absorbers and new rod-end bearings. These will strengthen the independent suspension and provide a more adaptable ride, reducing the impact of rocks, ruts, and more.
The greatest value of this Titan upgrade, however, lies in its convenience. CNET explains that the bolt-on design will spare drivers a frustrating body modification, instead requiring only a few hours at a trusted dealership to complete. Installation will prove easy.

It seemed an impossible task - with the pick-up market doomed to mediocre ratings and cool critic receptions. These half-ton platforms (with their emphases on trailering and long-haul demands) have never earned recognition for safety. Their technologies didn't impress; and their capabilities lagged behind every mid-size counterpart. They weren’t destined to excel in crash test scenarios.
Nissan is now changing this - by introducing drivers to its 2018 Titan.
According to Cars.com, the 2018 Titan has just received the coveted Good rating from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). This award - which has rarely been given to pick-ups in the past - celebrates the extensive upgrades Nissan has provided for the new year; and it emphasizes the truck’s ability to respond to small overlap front collisions, side crashes, and head-on incidents.
How did Nissan secure a top rating from the IIHS? It bolstered the 2018 Titan with advanced capabilities. Electronic stability and traction control helps to maintain precise lane positions, reducing the risk of rollovers while cornering. Vented all-wheel anti-lock brakes ensure seamless decelerations; while daytime running lights combat Seattle’s gray mornings. Integrated sensors recognize when a crash has occurred, instantly engaging the airbag suite (which includes side-impact and head curtain inflatables); and Moving Object Detection software enhances the Around View monitor, alerting drivers to passing cars and pedestrians alike.
The 2018 Titan offers ample safety features - making it an ideal option for work or play. To learn more about this platform contact us today.
Got some work to get done? The 2018 Titan is up to the task. Nissan’s latest truck offers tremendous utility to anyone in the Seattle area searching for a pick-up that’s powerful, well-designed, and roomy.
The 2018 Titan provides performance out the wazoo. While there’s a standard V8 capable of supplying 380 horses and a 9,390-pound towing capacity, there’s also the option of a magnificent 5.0L Cummins turbodiesel motor on the XD model that offers an insane 555-lb.-ft. of torque and a max hauling capability of 12,000 lbs. Payload is tremendous, too, at up to 2,594 lbs.
There’s plenty of room to haul stuff around on the 2018 Titan. A number of different configurations cater to a wide range of prospective owners. King Cabs supply a 6.5’ truck bed. Single Cabs are fantastic for those that need a workhorse machine and come equipped with an 8’ bed. Finally, those interested in a daily driver may gravitate toward the Crew variant, which boasts four doors for easy access and either a 5.5’ or 6.5’ bed (the latter on the larger XD model).
