Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
My experience at Key West Ford
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice.
Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team.
Thank you so much.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.
Excellent customer service!
Highly recommend Peter Olsen for sales. Super helpful and very authentic. Definitely one of my best experiences thus far.

Latest Ford News For Vancouver And New Westminster B.C. Drivers
It’s an all-terrain expectation. The 2019 Explorer will conquer the backroads, sailing across unsteady miles with V6 precision; and you’ve already charted a series of adventures to take this season, wanting to experience the rush of six-speed power and available four-wheel control.
Ford suggests pairing these expeditions with more than mere performance, though. Instead embrace safety on the trails - relying on the new Explorer’s advanced technologies.
As Trucks.com explains, the 2019 Explorer proves ready for every challenge, introducing Vancouver drivers to top-tier tech. Roll stability technology seamlessly compensates for wild miles, utilizing sensors to identify sudden changes in trajectory; while electronic traction software enhances tread pressure to ensure maximum grippage. A rear-view camera offers wide-angle support; an optional adaptive cruise function responds to traffic patterns, engaging the ABS as needed to avoid sudden collisions; and a curve control system detects pitch rates, adjusting the suspension to improve overall fore-aft motions.
Ford pairs these features with an available lane-keeping assist system - which tracks the Explorer’s movements, using body-mounted sensors to measure the distance between the car and the road markers. If drivers veer from the charted route, a series of audio warnings will be released. This affords enough time to correct alignments and assure safe miles.
The 2019 Explorer will deliver security to Vancouver. To learn more about this crossover contact us today!
Prepare, Vancouver, for a new cabin experience - with Ford readying its assembly lines for the 2020 Explorer. This platform (which will arrive next fall) will inject sleek design into every mile, boasting a revised interior and soft-touch textures.
According to Auto Blog, images of the 2020 Explorer have been released. These pictures - which were captured by fast-fingered photographers as the SUV was being tested on Ford’s proving grounds - reveal a transformed cabin. No longer is it anchored by the signature center stack. Instead a vertical board (flanked by enlarged air vents) dominates the dash, emphasizing the interior’s lean lines and chic A-Pillars. A rotary-style gear selector adds a touch of retro-inspiration, while an eight-inch touchscreen offers modernity. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather, and plush cloth inserts punctuate the doors. Custom stitch-work follows the curve of the seats, drawing attention to their bolstered bucket shapes.
The 2020 Explorer also offers comfort - with Ford’s revised center stack demanding less space. No official dimensions have yet been provided, but critics predicts that this crossover will feature an additional two inches of legroom in the front (ensuring maximum convenience for both the driver and co-pilot).

Rejoice, adventurers: the next generation of off-road performance has just been spotted. Ford is testing the limits of its 2020 Explorer… and this will soon bring V6 power to the Lower Mainland.
According to Motor One, the new Explorer (which should make its official debut next fall) was recently seen navigating the snowy roads of Michigan. Though heavily camouflaged, the platform still revealed much to critics - with its potent engine suite proving impossible to disguise. A 3.0L V6 is anticipated, producing up to 400 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Twin-turbochargers should flank the block, enhancing every rev; while a 10-speed automatic transmission will boast SelectShift technology and a potential Sport Mode setting. All of this will then be mated to an all-wheel-drivetrain, which should offer Ford’s signature Terrain Management technology to improve incline performance.
To further enhance the Explorer’s backroad capabilities, the Big Blue Oval has also paired this ride with an aerodynamic grille - trading the traditional square shape for a more fluid curve. This will help to sluice away wind and lessen drag friction, enabling the platform to rev more efficiently up hills.
The 2020 Explorer will prove a perfect option for those seeking adventure beyond Vancouver. To learn more about this SUV - or to schedule a test-drive in one of our current Ford models - contact us today!
Rumors are meant to be ignored. The Key West Ford team knows this - with all fiber of our beings, with every thought in our minds. Nothing good comes from idle speculation.
Could the 2020 Explorer, though, possibly be the exception?
According to CarBuzz, official specs for the new Explorer remain scarce - but the few hints released from Ford prove too tantalizing to ignore. This platform is rumored to boast three new engines: a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder, a 3.3L V6, and a 3.0L V6. Performance ratios are unknown, but critics anticipate that they’ll exceed the current numbers (365 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque); and the inclusion of both rear- and all-wheel drivetrains will ensure crisp capability. A 10-speed automatic transmission should anchor each chassis (replacing the current six-gear option); and recent spy-shots have revealed a revised interior, with an enlarged digital console framing the instrument panel.
Most exciting, however, is the inclusion of hybrid technology. Critics believe that the 2020 Explorer will offer a lithium-ion battery system - supplementing traditional performance with EcoBoost efficiency. This should enhance economy by more than 10% and allow the platform to push past its competitors at the pump.
We’re excited - aren’t you?

Size truly does matter within the crossover market. The less is more mentality has been long since abandoned, and drivers demand an excess of volume with every mile.
Ford is eager to oblige them - fusing its 2018 Explorer with an award-winning cabin.
Recently the critics at Kelley Blue Book sought to find the ultimate crossover option - comparing wheelbases and cabin widths alike. Their search eventually led them to the 2018 Ford Explorer and the 2018 GMC Acadia, two seven-passenger platforms that promise exceptional space. The KBB team slid themselves between each seat, calculating inches and totaling volume; and the result… was as expected.
The Explorer’s extended wheelbase (112.6 inches) dwarfs the Acadia, delivering a capacious cabin that accommodates seven riders with ease. The tri-row configuration yields 42.9-inches, 39.5-inches, and 33.3-inches of legroom, respectively; and the 151.7 cu.-ft of passenger volume ensures premium comfort. Families can effortlessly sprawl in this leather-lined beast.

It’s a massive trailer - stuffed with boxes and bags, piled high with every off-road necessity. You’ve planned the ultimate springtime escape; and each of these items will help you achieve seasonal fun. As you glance to the quivering hitch of your crossover, however, you worry that this payload is too great.
Ford suggests seeking a car that can accommodate it - like the 2018 Explorer.
As The Chronicle Herald explains, the new Explorer proves ready for every adventure - delivering class-leading trailering with each mile. Boasting a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6, this crossover generates 290 HP (at 6,500 RPM) and 255 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPM). Its six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission yields a mid-range gear seat, effortlessly accommodating heavy payloads with custom power-band responses; while natural aspiration promotes improved air intake and optimal fuel distribution, allowing the engine to maintain its ignition with ease.
These elements combine to ensure superior towing capabilities - with the 2018 Explorer yielding up to 5,000 pounds of conventional hauling and 1,717 payload pounds. A Class III hitch ensures effortless trailer connectivity, and integrated Sway Control technology delivers gyroscopic balance (keeping all cargo secure on tight turns).
The new Explorer enables drivers to embrace their springtime thrills - without fearing the weight of a trailer. To learn more about this crossover contact our team today!
Crossovers reign supreme on the North American charts. These big-wheeled behemoths accommodate families and adventurers with equal ease; and their emphasis on everyday comfort makes them ideal for any expedition.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 Explorer delivered massive chart performance last year - dominating both December and 2017 itself.
According to the NWI Times, the 2018 Explorer was among Ford’s biggest selling platforms. In December this SUV delivered a staggering 33.3% growth, generating 23,375 total unit sales. This launched the Big Blue Oval to a 10.1% year-to-year increase, and it also helped to ensure an overall chart victory.
For the eighth year in a row Ford ruled the North American market - boasting a total sales yield of 2,475,556. This number - which no other brand was able to even approach - showcases the importance of the crossover segment, with critics noting that the Explorer and its all-wheel brethren generated a 3.7% increase overall. While coupes and hot hatches failed to ignite the charts, these platforms excelled.
The Key West team knows why. The 2018 Explorer proves a perfect combination of power and performance. Anchored by a 3.5L EcoBoost engine, this platform yields up to 365 HP. Its best-in-class towing capacity (5,000) is achieved through Intelligent AWD and intuitive trailer sway control technology; while its Terrain Management System allows it to navigate even the toughest roads with ease.

Luxury no longer demands a compromise of power - with Ford ensuring that its 2017 Explorer Platinum impresses on every terrain. This SUV has been engineered for far more than sophistication, embracing an off-road sensibility with every mile.
According to Top Speed, the 2017 Explorer Platinum proves that appearances can be deceiving. Though tailored for the upscale market - utilizing premium leather panels and chrome accents - this SUV is an absolute beast on the road. Bolstered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, it can accommodate loads of up to 5,000 pounds. Integrated Trailer Sway Control creates a smooth ride, while seven-pin wiring connections ensure seamless hook-ups. The extended 112.8-inch wheelbase is mated to both an AWD and a six-speed automatic transmission, allowing it to rev through every incline with ease; and mounted roof rails provide an extra 500 pounds of storage.
When these elements combine, they allow the Explorer Platinum to rush past the competition - promising best-in-class trailering and dynamic all-terrain handling. This SUV proves ideal for every summer adventure.

The Big Blue Oval sits upon a foundation of pony-power and F-Series performance. Every year convertibles and pick-ups propel it to the top of the charts - earning acclaim from drivers and critics alike. The release of the 2017 Explorer, however, showcases an unexpected (but certainly not unwelcome) consumer shift.
According to the NWI Times, the cornerstone of Ford’s success now rests on all-terrain capability. The 2017 Explorer has earned a staggering 20.7% year-to-year increase, resulting in the brand’s best sales in 13 years. In May alone, approximately 23,000 units were sold. This shatters all previous records and emphasizes the transition from sedans to SUVs.
With this transition comes incredible profits for Ford. The NWI Times notes that its overall margins have increased by 2.2% from 2016, and this trend should continue throughout the rest of the year - with the new Explorer bolstering every quarter.
The Key West team recognizes the value of SUV performance. The 2017 Explorer - which pairs a 2.3L EcoBoost engine with Intelligent 4WD - allows drivers to experience every mile with power and precision. Class III Trailer technology delivers up to 5,000 pounds of off-road hauling; while AdvanceTrac Stability Control creates a seamless ride. This is the platform for adventurers, families, and everyone in between.
