We went to key west to trade in our car. We didn’t know what to expect. The staff made it a positive experience. We are now enjoying our new 2018 Ford Escape Titanium.
My Purchase with Peter Olson
When I met Peter he first started by asked as many questions as he could about the truck I was looking for. My use of the truck, the age of the truck, the price range, interior style, preferred colour and so on.
Peter called and had a few trucks for me to look at and drive to compare. I spent about 3 hours with Peter and it was a casual afternoon and a lot of questions were answered.I enjoyed my purchase with Peter.
Glad we’re lost!!
Me and my wife was lost looking for the car dealer we want to go to.im so glad we passed by Keywest Ford and met Allan. He’s such a terrific salesperson. He’s got answers to all our questions and a lot of things he could suggest for a very good deal.

We purchased a truck from Colton H. Yesterday. It was a pleasure working with him.. He was professional, personable and efficient. The whole process was positive ......even the financing with Nicholas T (who was very accommodating, informative and pleasant) was stress free.
Thanks to both of you!
Nancy and Brad
Fantastic Salesman, beware additional fees!
I purchased a vehicle from Alan at the beginning of the month and he was a pleasure to work with. Very quick response to my email enquiry and set up a test drive at my convenience. He was friendly and professional throughout the entire process making sure that the whole transaction was a pleasant one. However, the dealership has a couple of additional fees they add to your purchase after you've agreed to a price. A $199 insurance transfer fee and a $795 service fee which added $1000 to the final invoice presented for signature. No mention of these fees before this which was disappointing. Fees are a necessary evil when buying a vehicle but this dealership needs to be up front about them like they are with the documentation fee of $599.
We have just purchased a car from Robert and it was a great experience. We inquired about a car via email and Robert was extremely fast to respond by email as well as by phone. Robert was very friendly and professional and helped us to purchase the exact car we wanted. The whole transaction was fast and painless due to a great team at Key West Ford Sales Ltd. I would recommend Robert to anyone who looks for a new or a used car. Thank you very much!
New F150 purchase
Right from when I drove onto the lot Robert was very professional and knowledgeable and easy to deal with which made the whole process of purchasing my first truck a breeze.

Christmas has come late for pick-up fans - with Ford recently unveiling its 2019 Ranger. This mid-size platform didn’t make the December deadline, but we’re certain drivers won’t mind too terribly. After all, it’s poised to become the ultimate four-wheel gift when it makes its official debut this summer.
‘Tis the season for all-terrain power.
According to Off Road Xtreme, the 2019 Ranger was recently spotted on the snowy streets of Michigan. Photographers were able to snag some dynamic shots of its newly re-tuned chassis; and, despite Ford’s best efforts to camouflage the truck, certain details were gleaned, including:
An Elongated Body: no longer with the Ranger serve as a compact platform. Instead its frame has been lengthened to rival the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma. No official dimensions have yet been released, but critics were quick to note the extended fenders and square front.
Fascia Changes: while the Ranger seems to mirror the style of its predecessors, onlookers were able to spy some revised LED light placements and a larger front bumper. This should create a sportier profile when the camouflage is removed.
Transmission: during the Ranger’s Michigan test-run, spectators were able to decipher the smooth shift of a new 10-speed gearbox. This will ensure enhanced performance on the backroads, allowing the truck to effortlessly maneuver through every terrain.

Mystery shrouds the 2019 Ranger FX4. For months Ford has kept this platform hidden - testing it on deserted roads and refusing to share photos. Fans have pleaded for an informational reprieve but none has been given…. until now.
Off Road has just revealed the first look at the new Ranger, letting drivers slip behind the wheel and explore the cabin. Check out this exclusive series of spy shots!
The 2019 Ranger promises to be an everyday powerhouse - with Ford emphasizing consumer convenience with every mile. Not only will this pick-up boast a more agile frame (allowing for easier downtown maneuvering), it will also impress with its interior. A 4.2-inch touchscreen anchors the dash, flanked by an AM/FM stereo and CD player. Oversized buttons will ensure simple interfacing with the SYNC infotainment console, while soft-touch materials can be glimpsed on the door panels. This all pairs with a streamlined gray color scheme, emphasized by the high-end plastic dash and cloth headliner.
What does this mean for Ranger fans? We anticipate that the 2019 model will be intuitively designed - with Ford seeking to provide comfort, ease, and adaptability. This is not a luxury model. Instead it’s meant to offer value with every mile, revitalizing the compact market in North America.
Rejoice, Ranger fans! Ford has finally unveiled the prototype for its 2019 FX4 - bringing compact styling to the backroads once again.
In 2012 Ford retired its beloved Ranger, citing sluggish sales and a changing market. There was no longer a place for mid-size platforms. Instead, the Big Blue Oval argued, drivers preferred the massive proportions of the F-Series. Bigger was better, after all.
The years have yielded a far different public response, however, and now the Ranger is coming back! Ford Authority reports that the 2019 FX4 platform has been spotted - and drivers will soon have much to celebrate. Though the platform’s signature size remains intact, a series of fascia upgrades will propel it into the modern market. A large front skid plate delivers superior protection, deftly deflecting rocks and rubble; while dual tow hooks allow for seamless hauling. The rear has been streamlined, with the sport bar removed (this should help to improve responses and lessen overall chassis drag). Chrome-capped side-view mirrors complete the effect.
All of this pairs with an anticipated turbocharged V6 engine - which the critics at Ford Authority were able to glimpse during testing. This will allow the Ranger to directly compete with the GMC Canyon and the Chevrolet Colorado - making it a true sales presence next year.
Are you ready for the ultimate automotive revival?

Another day, another long-suffering sigh - with Ranger fans staring mournfully at their calendars, willing the year to end. Ford has promised to offer a new generation of pick-up performance in 2018, and drivers across North America are counting the days until the mid-size market is changed.
Key West Ford shares their impatience - especially as critics predict a powerhouse engine for the 2019 Ranger.
According to The Drive, Ford may fuse the Ranger with a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. This news was, at first, met with disdain among consumers - with all of them craving V8 performance or V6 speeds. Critics are quick to note, however, that this powertrain could prove mighty on the highway, with output ratios estimated to reach 310 HP and 320 lb.-ft of torque.
This would allow the Ranger to crush the competition (for example, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado only yields 308 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque), utilizing turbocharged capability to rev down the road. The EcoBoost engine - which is currently available on the Mustang - would be an ideal option for work or play.
Ford has yet to confirm any Ranger specs - but The Drive team anticipates the inclusion of this four-cylinder beast (along with a 10-speed automatic transmission and Intelligent AWD) when the truck arrives next fall. We can't wait.
It’s been a seven-year struggle - with Ranger fans begging Ford to restore their beloved pick-up, trying to coax even the smallest of production schedules. Ever since this mid-size truck was taken from the highway, drivers have been doing all they can to get it back.
It seems their efforts will soon be rewarded.
Car and Driver reports that Ford is testing a new Ranger! The 2019 model has been spotted in Michigan, boasting a wide-fendered profile and an elevated suspension (the Raptor influence is both obvious and welcome). Though heavily camouflaged, the familiar short-bed was visible; and the recessed HID headlamps were given a place of prominence along the front fascia.
Despite sneaking a peek at the 2019 Raptor, though, Car and Driver was unable to determine the available powertrain. It was simply too quiet, purring down the Michigan streets and delivering none of the usual V8 rumble. This has led to intense speculation about Ford’s plans for the future, with critics debating the likelihood of: a 2.7L EcoBoost V6; a four-cylinder V6; or a 3.5L V6. All seem possible and would emphasize economy, a cornerstone of the mid-size market.
What do you think? Which engine will anchor the 2019 Raptor? Key West Ford has its fingers crossed for the EcoBoost (which, on F-Series models, has always been paired with twin turbochargers).

In 2011 a new philosophy swept through the Ford brand - a whirlwind of bigger, better, more. All platforms would be oversized; all specs would be enhanced; and the entire line-up would receive a wide-fendered upgrade.
Those upgrades proved too much for the Ranger. This compact pick-up had no place among the F-150s and custom Raptors, and it was shoved unceremoniously off the assembly line. It was too small to survive in this massive market.
The trends always change, however, and Ford recently revealed that the Ranger will soon find its way back to the roads.
According to Yahoo, Ford is revving up production for a 2019 Ranger. This truck - which will serve as a more economical alternative to the F-Series - will boast a lightweight body-on-frame design and a responsive 4x4 drivetrain. This will allow it to deliver light-duty performance, filling a void in the automotive world (compact platforms have almost disappeared, forcing drivers to rely on extended wheelbases for every task. This is both impractical and inefficient).
Consumers have been begging for a new Ranger since the brand was discontinued in 2011. With the release of this 2019 platform, all desires should be fulfilled - with Ford promising dynamic handling and superior speeds. This will be an ideal option for those in need of everyday practicality.
Less truly is more.

Envy isn’t an emotion the Key West team often experiences - but, as we stare across the pond and see the Ford Ranger crushing every corner, we can’t help but feel a twinge of regret. This compact powerhouse is currently dominating the European coast, delivering a Go Further philosophy with every mile.
We’re jealous. We admit it.
We think perhaps our customers will understand, however - especially after watching this latest Ranger promotion, which highlights the grueling tests the pick-up must go through before being deemed road-worthy. Exceptional performance demands exceptional endurance. Check it out!
The 2016 Ford Ranger promises incredible power, connecting international drivers to a 3.2L five-cylinder TDCi engine (which delivers 197 HP and 470 Nm). Through its rugged construction - which blends aluminum panels and an extended cab - it achieves best-in-class towing; and its direct-injection platform ensures premium throttle responses.
It’s the ultimate compact... and it’s currently overseas. Key West Ford wishes the Ranger would make its way to the Lower Mainland, and we’ve got our fingers crossed for the next-generation of pick-up power to rev into our lot.

Planning a summer escape? Key West Ford suggests abandoning your traditional mountain retreats and lakeside adventures. Consider instead sailing across the pond - because the Ranger Wildtrak is coming to Europe and you’ll want to see this mid-size powerhouse in person.
The Key West team is currently gathering our suitcases, preparing for a trip to foreign shores to find the Wildtrak. This new Ranger promises incredible performance, delivering:
These numbers showcase the adaptability of the Wildtrak, with Ford’s dynamic engineering allowing the truck to roll through any terrain. It’s an all-purpose, all-terrain beast - and we desperately wish it would come to the Lower Mainland.
In 2011 the Ranger was discontinued in North America, leaving drivers to weep at the loss of the mid-size market. The Wildtrak will certainly cause those tears to start again, offering class-leading performance and exceptional styling. We can only hope that Ford will one day bring it back to Canada.

In 2011 Ford shattered hearts across North America, declaring that the beloved Ranger would no longer anchor its pick-up line. The truck would instead be sent overseas, leaving drivers in Canada and the US to wallow in their chrome-covered misery.
Now salt's being added to the proverbial wound... because the 2015 Ranger has raced into Australia, delivering the power and performance North Americans crave.
The 2015 Ranger promises superior performance. Its three engines - which include a 3.2L five-cylinder diesel, a 2.2L four-cylinder diesel, and a 2.2L turbocharger - generate up to 197 HP and 347 lb.-ft of torque. Best-in-class towing accommodates more than 7,700 payload pounds, while a suite of tech upgrades promotes safer driving experiences. These upgrades include:
Adaptive Cruise Control.
Blind Spot Monitoring.
Bluetooth Emergency Assistance.
... and more.
This is the perfect pick-up for the mid-size market - and the Key West team wishes it would rev its way across the sea.

The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show has begun, bringing high speeds and high performance to Europe. The event - which has already drawn close to 1 million visitors - serves as the premier showcase for the world’s best cars, such as: the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Bentley Batayga, and the Porsche Mission E. Stunning curves and powerful engines shape every display.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak seems an unlikely addition to this pack of roadsters - but this pick-up powerhouse has been earning major acclaim in Frankfurt.
With the debut of the Wildtrak, Ford is bringing compact power to the European market. This truck delivers a 2.2L TDCi diesel engine, generating up to 160 PS. Advanced technologies - including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Electronic Stability Control - ensure precise steerage, while the SYNC 2 delivers intuitive interfacing. This is the ultimate compact option.
We just wish it would make its way from Germany to B.C. - don’t you?
