We are very happy with the service and support we have received from Robert. We had a lot of questions and needed some extra support with our new Mustang, and Robert was patient, knowledgeable, and efficient, doing whatever it took to make up happy. The whole team at Key West, including Nicholas Terezakis who handled our warranty purchases, have been great to deal with.
We were in good hands. Thanks everyone!

Disappointed. Shocked this is a Ford dealership
Very disappointed,my sons first experience purchasing a new vehicle. Had I known how poor this dealership is I would’ve have convinced him to buy somewhere else. Do not buy from this dealership or this sales manager. Doesn’t care about your complaints. Word of advice test drive at this lot but order and buy from another dealership. You’ll get treated better
Above & Beyond
This fellow is one of a kind. In all my life I’ve never had a good experience at a car dealership until I went to Key West Ford. What an amazing group of people. My focus titanium(2017) is the second purchase that I’ve made off Michael both experiences were something to write home about.
Whether you’re in the market for a Ford or any other kind of vehicle please do yourself a favour and check out the great people at Key West Ford.
Helped me find the car I want
This is my first car purchase. When I came to here, I didn't have a clear idea on what car I shall buy. Allan showed me around on several probable ways to buy my first car. The next day, he also found another car that suit my current need.
As I am new to Canada, there are a lot of differences on law, rules and regulations from the country I was in. Allan provided useful information on all of them and helped me get to a purchase solution that can fit into my short term and long term plan.
Now I have used the car for some time and everything seems good :)
2017 F150 supercrew
Great pricing, very helpful. I'm from out of town and was on a tight schedule. Jag and the rest of the folks at key west were sensitive to my time constraints and had my truck ready for delivery with no hiccups.
We had a small car budget in mind and after talking it over and trying various model we settled for something newer than expected without breaking the bank.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to anyone looking for a used or new car to start at key West Ford.

Back in 2003, Nissan Design Europe opened their doors in London following the repurposing of a graffiti-covered transport depot. Despite that rather inauspicious start, the studio has become a world-class innovation hub that’s pleased to start its 15th year in operation at its current home. Moreover, it’s celebrating the fact that it’s been responsible for some of the Japanese automaker’s most progressive and popular car models.
Nissan Design Europe’s prowess over the past decade and a half has been primarily exhibited through the manufacturer’s crossovers. The studio first birthed the Qashqai concept in 2003, which later gave way to the “little brother,” the Juke. However, of interest to 2018 model year shoppers is the way that latter vehicle has led to the introduction of the fantastic new Kicks SUV.
The 2018 Kicks benefits from the dual focus on practicality and emotion that highlighted many of Nissan Design Europe’s creations, including the Juke. The new vehicle offers a sensational floating roof aesthetic and positively aggressive boomerang-shaped front and rear LED lamps. Additionally, the signature V-Motion grille exudes all the style and character customers have come to expect in recent years.
However, the Kicks also boasts the practicality of fine engineering—namely, a 1.6L four-cylinder that cranks out 125 HP and 115-lb.-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is also fantastic at an average of 33 MPG combined, and operation is smooth sailing thanks to the Xtronic continuously variable transmission.
The 2018 Nissan Murano is a big-time player in the SUV market. It commands consumer attention through its sublime combination of safety and performance features that push its segment forward. If you’re looking for a fresh ride in the new year, this could be the one!
There is a myriad of onboard safety inclusions, but we’re going to focus on two integral ones in this space today. First is Automatic Emergency Braking, which prevents front crashes by sensing cars moving ahead of you and slowing or stopping your Murano whenever you get too close. Then there's Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which is a complementary feature that makes you aware of the distance and speed of automobiles around you, giving an audible alert as necessary. If safety is important to you, this SUV reigns supreme.
The 2018 Murano is also a high performer. It relies on its trusty, powerful 3.5L V6. The motor revs and roars, offering 260 HP. It’s surprisingly easy on gas consumption, too. As you roll around Seattle, Bellevue, and Renton, you’ll find that the SUV provides an average MPG of 28 highway / 21 city.
Heads up, Seattle! If you’re searching for a crossover that puts the safety of you and your passengers first, look no further than the 2018 Nissan Murano. It’s a heralded vehicle with advanced technology designed to get you securely to your destination.
The 2018 Murano features “superior front crash prevention” according to the Institute for Highway Safety. The IIHS also came away mightily impressed in other categories. The crossover received the highest score of “Good” in each of the body's tests. That includes the “Small Overlap Front,” “Moderate Overlap Front,” “Side,” “Head Restraints & Seats,” and “Roof Strength” examinations.
It should be no surprise that the Murano fares so well in the above exams. It has a bevy of onboard safety features, including Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. This watches not one but two cars ahead, measuring distance and speed. When it senses deceleration, it will alert you to slow down. There’s also Automatic Emergency Braking. When enabled, this prevents crashes by stopping on your behalf. Also, a rollover sensor can detect the impending situation before it occurs, automatically deploying the side curtain airbags to cushion passengers. Stunning technology, right?
Nissan has announced that the initial batch of 2018 Kicks has come out of their Rio de Janeiro industrial complex and are now being transported to neighboring Argentina. The 933 units mark some of the first shipping anywhere in the world. They begin wider global production ahead of the model’s introduction to Seattle and North America showrooms in June of next year.
The Kicks is a fantastic new compact crossover set to shake up the market. It comes packed with a 1.6L four-cylinder motor offering 125 horses and 115-lb.-ft. of torque. The efficiency of the engine is astounding—the EPA estimates you’ll receive an unbelievable 33 miles per gallon combined. And the Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is smoother than any automatic you’ve ever driven.
The exterior has a lot going for it, too. The now customary V-Motion Nissan grille is used to striking effect, while the headlamps are elongated and boomerang-shaped. This provides a thrilling look. LED technology is available both on the front and rear lights. Additionally, the inclusion of the eye-popping floating roof means there are a total of seven body colors and five two-tone designs offered.
This week, Nissan fully removed the shroud from its upcoming VC-Turbo engine, the world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio motor. Although the power plant is set to first appear on the INFINITI QX50, the Japanese automaker aims to bring the sophisticated technology to other lines, perhaps including the Pathfinder, Murano, and more.
The VC-Turbo is unique from conventional machines such as the Rogue in that it blends the efficiency of diesel engines with the performance of turbocharged gasoline motors. This is achieved through an advanced multi-link operation that alters the compression ratio seamlessly, lowering and raising piston reach constantly.
Nissan’s new engine flies in the face of conventional wisdom that only diesels and hybrids can produce both efficiency and high torque. The VC-Turbo provides 268 HP @ 5,600 RPM and 280-lb.-ft. @ 4,400 rpm. Gas mileage is fantastic, too—in the QX50, the motor is set to offer a combined MPG of 27, which marks a 35-percent improvement over the outgoing setup on the same vehicle. It seems clear that it's set to shake up the automotive world.
We’ve spoken on the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks’ myriad of interior technologies, but what about the exterior and the engine’s prowess? Let us ease your mind—the upcoming crossover is set to both look good and speed mightily along Seattle’s streets.
As Nissan says, the 2018 Kicks’ styling is a combo of “emotion and practicality.” The familiar, celebrated V-Motion grille makes anappearance on the front, of course, but there’s so much more. There are aggressive boomerang headlamps and taillights, with LED technology available. The distinctive floating roof is eye-catching, too, and a total of seven body colors with five two-tone combinations really give consumers options. As far as design goes, this vehicle is exceptionally forward thinking.
All Kicks models come with a 1.6L four-cylinder engine rated at 125 horses and 115-lb.-ft. of torque. This is set to be mated to a continuously variable Xtronic transmission that has a limitless number of effective gear ratios for an impressively smooth ride. And MPG is expected to be stellar at 33 MPG combined, which compares favorably to everything in Nissan's line, including the Pathfinder and Murano.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show yesterday, the 2018 Kicks made its North American debut. The automobile is the latest in Nissan’s award-winning crossover and SUV lineup and looks to add to that segment’s record sales.
Due to arrive at dealerships including Kirkland Nissan beginning in June 2018, the Kicks is an all-new crossover set to shake up the automotive world thanks in large part to its incredible in-cabin technology. There’s a 7-inch full-color dashboard display that is both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible. Standard on all trims is a back-up camera, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. A grand total of seven airbags further ups the ante when it comes to safety. Also, upper-trim variants include the class-exclusive Bose Personal Plus sound system, which boasts dual 2.5-inch UltraNearfield neodymium speakers nestled within the driver’s headrest. Swanky!
The Kicks S, KicksSV, and Kicks SR models will bolster Nissan’s SUV lineup, acting as a gateway to the rest of the automaker’s similar offerings—the Rogue, Pathfinder, Armada, and Murano.
Nissan is busier than ever these days. The automaker has long been dedicated to advancing all-electric technology through their LEAF line, but now the company has its sights on reinvigorating and revolutionizing the conventional gasoline engine with their VC-Turbo motor.
The incredible VC-Turbo is first set to debut in the Nissan-owned 2019 INFINITI QX50 mid-size crossover, although it’s likely the tech is planned for eventual inclusion on future Murano and Pathfinder models, among others. The new 2.0L turbocharged gasoline engine delivers the kind of torque commonly associated with a four-cylinder diesel, yet with the efficiency of a hybrid.
The VC-Turbo achieves the aforementioned feat through a multi-link system that lowers or raises pistons to reach the desired goal. A high compression ratio boosts efficiency, while a lower one increases performance. In fact, the engine outperforms the previous, conventional V6-equipped QX50 by as much as 35-percent. Fuel economy in that vehicle is now expected to come in at 27 MPG combined (highway and city), while power and torque will be a best-in-class 268 HP and 280-lb.-ft., respectively. Nissan fans can expect similar gains once this exemplary new motor trickles down to other car lines.
Nissan is enjoying a sensational run of success in North America. The future already looks bright with the myriad of self-driving and all-electric technologies on track for 2020 and beyond, but the present is pretty amazing, too. The Japanese automaker’s messaging is resonating with fans everywhere, and accordingly, Canada’s Strategy magazine has honored the company with its “Brand of the Year” award.
The honor from Canada’s national publication examining the marketing community specifically recognizes Nissan’s long-term “Conquer All Conditions” campaign. Debuted in 2014, the adverts highlight the sophisticated power and prowess of the Rogue to handle anything the winter can throw at it.
Specifically, the television spots emphasize the Nissan Rogue’s uncanny ability to navigate potentially treacherous conditions such as icy back roads, slush-filled highways, and mudslides thanks to its myriad of safety and security features. The ads use a cinematic approach to detail the import of the automaker’s sophisticated Active Trace and Ride Controls, Active Engine Braking, Forward Collision Detection and, of course, all-wheel drive.
Everyone understands the perils that come with drunk driving, but here’s a little known but related fact: Operating a vehicle under the influence of not enough water carries its own hazards. And Nissan wants to fight the problems associated with dehydration while behind the wheel via awareness brought through new sweat-sensing seat technology.
According to a 2015 study by the European Hydration Institute, drivers that only took approximately a sip of water before operating a vehicle were at risk of making twice as many mistakes as properly hydrated travelers. The number of errors made equated to roughly the kind of performance seen in individuals under the influence of a 0.08-percent blood alcohol content (BAC) level. Shocking, right?
As a result of this revelation, late this year Nissan teamed with Drooq to create a new seating material—SOAK coating. It changes color when coming in contact with a driver’s sweat, turning yellow to indicate the passenger should rehydrate. Conversely, it alters to blue to give an “all clear.” While this new tech isn’t currently planned for any production vehicles, future cars from the Japanese manufacturer (including, perhaps, the beloved Pathfinder) could always introduce it.
