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 Ford News For Vancouver And New Westminster B.C. Drivers
The 2015 Expedition is a utility powerhouse. This Ford option embraces every adventure with an incredible 9,200-lb. towing capacity, 130.8 units of cargo space and a Control Trac 4WD. It’s intended for the toughest roads and the harshest climates.
And its V6 engine lets it adapt to both with ease.
Key West Ford is excited to announce that the 2015 Expedition features a 3.5L V6 engine (complete with EcoBoost technology and an intercooled turbocharger). It can now generate up to 365 HP and a Best-In-Class toque ranking of 420 lb-ft. This makes it as powerful as a pick-up but still as comfortable as a SUV.
And that’s a combination we can’t wait to test for ourselves!
Not satisfied with V6 performance? The 2015 Expedition features other updates, including: Hill Start Assistance, an Integrated Trailer Brake Control, a Continuously Controlled Damping system and Electric Power-Assisted Steering. These elements blend together for the ultimate SUV experience.

Craving an adventure? Ford recommends the 2015 Escape. With its 2.5L Duratec engine, 3,500-lb. towing capacity and Intelligent 4WD design, this SUV takes drivers down every backroad and byway with ease.
And now it does it in style!
Check out this crystal-covered Ford Escape! Over $1 million worth of Swarovski gems have been applied to every curve, creating a look that is both striking and startling.
According to Yahoo.com, this unusual treatment is offered by Jennings Ford (a dealership located in northeast England). It’s a painstaking process, with every crystal set by hand. This creates the studded texture, which is meant to replicate the look of fine jewelry. Jennings’ representatives claim that this car could become the premier Valentine’s Day gift, replacing traditional bracelets and pendants.
What do you think? Is this the ultimate holiday surprise or a trend too strange to consider?

This PostMedia hub provides readers with news, reviews and comparisons: continuously collecting data about the world’s leading manufacturers and their latest models. It boasts a circulation of almost 2 million readers per week, and it has become a leader of both journalistic and editorial writing.
It’s the defining voice in the car choir... and it’s no surprise that it’s now singing the praises of Sue Charbonneau!
Sue Charbonneau - Key West Ford’s much beloved Service Manager - has been showcased in Driving! The article, written by noted Vancouver Sun contributer Russell Purcell, is part of a series dedicated to women in the automotive industry. It highlights the shift toward gender equality and offers hope for the future.
The 2015 Focus promises exceptional performance. A 2.0L Ti-VCT engine delivers flex-fuel capabilities. An all-wheel drive system allows for superior handling, while a rear-diffuser design reduces understeering. It’s a hatchback powerhouse.
It’s also a Best In Class safety contender.
Ford has just announced that the 2015 Focus will feature new anti-skid technology. While this may seem less impressive than a turbocharged engine or EcoBoost efficiency, drivers will soon discover the importance of safety. This system - which is called Enhanced Transitional Stability - allows the car to automatically assess and respond to spin-outs. It anticipates a collision (noting both the speed and current trajectory) and then applies pressure to the brakes and/or individual wheels. This provides the driver with up to 200 milliseconds of response time.
And that could be the difference between a crash or a simple swerve.
Enhanced Transitional Stability first appeared on the market in 2013. It wasn’t widely applied, however, and few models have it even now. Ford’s use of it for the Focus proves their faith in its abilities... and promises safer cars for the future.
On January 26th the Key West team shared exciting news about Ford: the company was building a Silicon Valley lab, intending to focus on connectivity software and (most importantly) self-driving cars. The center would serve as a showcase for innovation.
Want to look inside?
Ford has just released this sneak peek of its new lab! Check out its latest projects - including virtual reality testing, heat mapping and vehicle simulations! This is the future of the auto industry... and the it puts the past to shame.
The Silicon Valley Research and Development Center allows Ford to further explore - and improve - the driving experience. We expect exceptional tech to spring from here, and several upcoming models (like the Focus RS, the Super Duty and the GT350R) will benefit directly from its applications.

In 1923 drivers flocked to France, determined to participate in a rare test of skill: Le Mans. This 24-hour event challenged even the most proficient racers, demanding that they balance high speeds against engine endurance. It was a fight for track domination and even now it remains the world’s premier Grand Prix.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that Ford is considering taking part in one of Le Mans’ upcoming races - and it’s no surprise that they may already have a car ready for production.
Check out this rendering of a possible LMP1 racer from Ford. It was recently glimpsed in a promotional video for the 2017 GT, leading to speculation that it would be a 350 variant. Note the streamlined body and elevated rear fin, as well as the Recaro branding. This hints at a rally future.
And - should this rendering prove accurate - that future will be bright.
Key West Ford is quick to note that the LMP1 racer has not been confirmed. The inclusion of it in promotional materials, however, does give credit to the rumor. This car may soon arrive... and dominate Le Mans.

Ford sales tumbled in 2014. The company - in the midst of a transition from steel framing to aluminum - couldn’t produce the necessary numbers, with too many assembly lines shut down and too many part-plants revamping their stocks. The supply-and-demand strategy failed.
This is going to change in 2015.
According to recent reports, Ford has already shown a profit for this year - thanks to its new F-150.
The 2015 F-150 dominates the charts, snagging over 50,000 sales in January alone (that’s a 16.3% increase from 2014). These trucks have remained on their lots for an average of only 12 days, and dealers have also noted increased interest for the F-Series as a whole. Test-drives and purchases have soared.
This promises an exceptional year for Ford, with the company finally able to embrace (and produce) its new aluminum design. The F-150 should continue to generate high numbers and reclaim the title of Best Selling Truck In North America.
We certainly expect it to be the Best Selling Truck In BC.

The impending arrival of the 2016 Focus RS has rocked the auto world. Drivers have dedicated this past week to sifting thorough video clips, photos and spec sheets - trying to find as much information as possible about this hot hatchback. Searches have been launched and questions have been asked.
Three questions in particular have reigned supreme on forums, with Focus fans debating the model's future and assemblage - and Key West Ford is happy to now provide the needed answers.
One: Will the North American RS differ from the European RS?
No! The Focus RS will be identical on every market (save for varying safety standards). There will be no loss of power or performance.
Two: Will the RS feature carbon fiber parts?
No. Unlike previous RS models, the 2016 Focus will have no carbon fiber parts or aluminum panels. It will instead rely on lightweight steel.
Three: Will the Focus RS be a rally-racer?
Possibly. Ford has made no direct announcements about the 2016 RS’ rally future, but most critics predict that the car will be a track contender. Some even suggest that a Le Mans' debut is possible.
The Focus RS is an engineering wonder... and Key West Ford can’t wait to get one on our lot. Be sure to visit our blog regularly as we reveal more information about this hatchback beast.
In 2014 Ford announced the return of the WildTrak, its popular Ranger variant. This 4x4 powerhouse would feature a 3.2L AT engine, a 5-cylinder inline DOHC and a direct commonrail injection system. This would generate over 200 PSM and 470 lb-ft. of torque, ensuring high speeds on the road.
And those high speeds will soon arrive - because the Ranger WildTrak has finally been spotted!
Check out these spy shots of the 2015 Wildtrak! Note the redefined front, which bears a striking resemblance to the F-150, and the upgraded driveline. The interior has also been updated, with LCD technology, leather craftsmanship and a bevy of tech options (including a tachometer and the new Sync system).
The 2015 Ranger WildTrak is scheduled for a spring release in Australia and the Philippines. Key West Ford, however, hopes this production schedule will soon extend to Canada (though we know this will depend upon the truck's global sales and critical success).
