Professional service and a good purchasing experience
I had an excellent experience dealing with Robert Antoniak on my recent F150 purchase. After my initial test drive, I took some time to think about the purchase. Robert followed up with me but was not at all "pushy" which is something I value when dealing with a seller. I found him friendly and very easy to deal with. Robert really knows his products and had an answer for every question I had. I would recommend Robert and Key West Ford to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle.
I also had an excellent experience setting up my financing with Michelle Kellough. Michelle went through all of the options and set me up with a finance plan that worked perfectly for me. Michelle is also very friendly and professional and I was quite happy with the service.
Allan was extremely patient and professional with me , showing me the best match to my needs . I am really happy with my choice so I do recommend you ask for him.
Very Happy With My Purchase
Robert Antoniak was professional, courteous, and answered all of my questions honestly. After having researched a few suitable vehicles on AutoTrader, I found a great car at Key West. Robert was eager to have me test-drive the vehicle, and I walked out with new (lightly used) car that afternoon. Very pleased with my purchase. Thanks to Michelle too!
Easy, breezy and pleasant experience re purchase of a 201...
Nothing but praise for the car; the service and the dealership and its culture. I have never had so painless and enjoyable experience at purchasing a car. Typically, it has been a somewhat anxiety-laden, somewhat pressured experience. Utterly different at Key West. Best experience ever in a car dealership. This will sound odd, but they seemed like friends.
JDF and ALA - New West
Thanks for your help!
Had great deal with you ,thanks for your help. I’m highly recommend this dealership because for the great service. Hope deal with u agin !
A very friendly and welcoming dealership!
This dealership was very friendly and welcoming. All the associates were very helpful. We selected a vehicle and left a deposit and returned the next day and drive away as very happy car owners! Definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking into buying a new or used vehicle!
Found Allan and rest of ground very good to deal with. He wasn't pushing and prepared to what was needed to get the sale. thanks
First time working with Key West - really enjoyed it
I came to Key West Ford looking at a very specific vehicle, hoping to trade out of a sedan into a small SUV. Ian was the sales guy on deck, and was very friendly and helpful. He understood that although a deal was possible, it wasn't guaranteed as I had appointments to see other vehicles.
We test drove the vehicle I was there to see (2017 Nissan Rogue), and he was very patient with the bad traffic on a Friday afternoon. He wasn't pushy or in a rush to get out of the car. We talked trade in potential on my old car, and about a possibility of a deal. I reviewed what he offered, and said I'd keep him in mind as I finished my other test drives.
Once those were done the next day, I selected the Key West Rogue as my car of choice. Ian was kind enough to come in on his Saturday off to help secure the offer he'd made me the day before, prepare the paperwork, and walk me through the process. I was never left alone, and never felt lost in the shuffle.
He also went to work scrambling to find me replacement floor mats (which had gone missing from the car) and a gas card to make up for the partially emptied tank.
It's worth mentioning too, every other employee I dealt with - every single one - was friendly. Whether it was another sales person taking two seconds to tell me where Ian was, the ladies at the front desk giving me directions, or dealing with the finance (Michelle was also awesome!), I didn't meet a single person at Key West that gave me a bad feeling.
Ian was a pro - dealt well, listened well, showed patience in asking for and landing the deal, and made me feel valued as a customer before moving on to any other business. I had a great experience dealing with him, and would do so again.
This has been the easiest car purchase I've ever made. Thanks Ian!
Thanks Allan for helping me find my next family vehicle.
I came in to the dealership looking to move up from a five seater sedan into a 7 seater SUV. Allan greeted me shortly after arriving and I let him know what I was looking for. I'm glad I didn't have to search all over for someone to help me like I've run in to at a few other dealerships. He fought through the cold weather to show me vehicle after vehicle till we found one that worked. We didn't end up doing the deal that day since it was a little more than what I had budgeted. Allan being the great guy that he is, called me a couple days later to let me know of more options that would be available for me from a new shipment that was coming in. I was happy that he kept working to help me well after I had left that day. Not every sales guy would go above and beyond like that. That's why I think he deserves 5 stars. The dealership did a great job making their vehicles available and did a fantastic detailing job on the slighty used vehicle that i purchased. I would have given Key West Ford 5 stars but I only received a half tank of gas when I left. I figured after giving them tens of thousands of dollars in business a full tank would have left a nice impression on their customer. It would have been completely empty if it wasn't for Allan seeing it before I left and he was quick to get it up to at least half for me. Overall a pretty good experience.
Moderation isn’t a familiar word within the Raptor lexicon - with Ford fusing this F-150 variant with turbocharged power and all-terrain capability. It’s meant to blaze through every obstacle, with its 10-speed automatic transmission allowing for peerless performance. It’s big; it’s loud; and it dominates the pick-up market with V6 ease.
Less does often prove to be more, however - and Ford is embracing this concept in 2019, pairing its hulking Raptor with the refined Ranger. Prepare for the ultimate automotive crossover.
According to AutoBlog, the 2019 Raptor Ranger will be a platform unlike any other - delivering both half-ton performance and compact styling. Anchored by a 2.3L EcoBoost, this pick-up should offer segment-leading power (HP ratios are expected to exceed 400). A four-wheel-drivetrain is anticipated, as is the brand’s signature Terrain Management System. These elements will combine to ensure seamless handling on every road, allowing the truck to rumble along coastlines and inclines with equal ease.
What should most impress, however, will be the Raptor’s lean design. Recent Ford concept art reveals a narrow profile - with this platform resembling the current T6 (an Australian Ranger variant). This should offer drivers nimble proportions, with an overall estimated length of 5,277-mm. Maneuvering this truck through traffic will prove all too simple.
No official release date for the Raptor Ranger has been provided. Our team will be certain, however, to monitor the news feeds and report all specs as they arrive.
Evolution defines the F-Series. Every year Ford engineers strip away performance ratios and trailering specs, leaving the chassis free of all expectations. Then they begin the meticulous process of piecing together bigger, better powertrains - with every model receiving a best-in-class enhancement.
The 2018 F-150 Raptor is no exception. This pick-up has been thoroughly transformed, with Ford emphasizing the need for greater economy and seamless shifting. Check it out!
According to the NWI Times, the new Raptor promises all-terrain fun. Bolstered by a 3.5L V6, it generates 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft of torque. A class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission pushes the all-wheel-drivetrain to the limit, utilizing both electronic stability control and available start-stop technology to maximize performance. This pairs with a sport-tuned suspension that delivers refined handling on even the rockiest of roads.
When these elements combine, Ford promises optimal efficiency - with the 2018 Raptor receiving an astonishing 15 MPGs in the city and 18 MPGs on the highway. This aluminum beast will keep drivers on the trails and away from the pump.

Constraints define the real world - with every angle blurred and every color dulled. Engineers squint beneath the too-harsh fluorescent glow, trying to piece together new technologies. Their efforts are burdened, however, by white noise distractions and clumsy fingers. Innovation suffers.
Ford now intends to change this - syncing its team to a virtual experience like no other. Prepare for an augmented reality.
According to MSNBC, Ford is no longer content to reside in the real world. It instead wishes to go beyond 3D, embracing augmented engineering and transformative imagery. A partnership with Microsoft - which recently delivered its HoloLens headset to the world, blending lock-step sensors and spatial sound - will anchor the brand’s new computing market. Through this, designers will be able to create cars, crossovers, and more with a simple wave of their hands.
The next generation of performance has arrived. Through augmented technology Ford can redefine production - superimposing visuals against an interactive digital background. They can scrutinize every component; they can examine every angle; and they can send each pixel across the web with the blink of an eye, streamlining communication between every sector. Craig Wetzel, a brand manager, reports: “We may not be able to teleport yet, but HoloLens allows us to review full-size 3-D designs ... around the world in real time.”
This will enhance every process, allowing Ford to design and then assemble vehicles with greater precision. Every F-150, Mustang, Explorer, and Expedition will be created on a virtual scrap of paper.
We can’t wait.

The truth doesn’t always prove kind - with North American consumers recently forced to face a series of sad facts from Ford: sales for the Fiesta ST have tumbled dangerously low; production costs have risen; and it’s no longer feasible to keep the assembly lines running. This hot hatch has driven its final mile.
Do you hear that? It’s the sound of grief rumbling across the highway - with a small (but devoted) Fiesta fanbase cursing the morning.
According to Torque Report, Ford will not bring its 2018 ST to North America. Flagging sales and niche interest have condemned past versions of this platform, and there is no indication that the latest trim would break the cycle. Drivers have simply not responded to the Fiesta’s sporty appeal.
We find that surprising - especially since the current 2017 ST has no equal on the market. Bolstered by a 1.6L inline-four engine, this hatchback delivers 197 HP and 202 lb.-ft of torque. Its nimble frame (carbon paneling ensures a curb weight of only 2,734-pounds) and six-speed manual transmission promise superior cornering, allowing drivers to roar from 0 to 60 in just seven seconds. The sport-tuned FWD provides smooth accelerations, and the Torsion Beam suspension adapts to ever-changing inclines with ease.
The 2017 Fiesta ST is a masterclass of power and performance - and the Key West team can’t believe we won’t be able to experience its successor in the Lower Mainland. We can only hope that Ford will undo this decision in time.

Across the sea they go - Ford’s not-quite-tamed Mustangs, their hoofs spitting smoke and chrome in equal measure. These ponies have been freed from the confines of their corrals, and they’re forcing waves to bend with every V8 whinny.
London will never be the same.
According to Automobile Magazine, Ford is sending its Mustang overseas - with the 2018 platform debuting in England. This proves a momentous occasion. Never before has the Big Blue Oval premiered a single car simultaneously across the globe, but this 5.0L beast will arrive in North American and European dealerships alike.
Drivers, we know, will be ecstatic on both sides of the pond.
Anchored by a best-in-class Coyote drivetrain, the 2018 Mustang promises 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. The new 10-speed automatic transmission improves acceleration, allowing the platform to race from 0 to 60 in only 3.9 seconds; and the exclusive Drag Strip mode yields a blitz of power, engaging the AWD for turbocharged cornering. This pony has no equal.
With the launch of the 2018 Mustang, Ford is connecting the world to unprecedented power - and we know that this platform will soon conquer every international chart.
The mid-year rush has ended - with automotive brands examining just how low their bottom lines have fallen. They study profits; they scrutinize sales; and they try to assuage consumers and investors alike if these numbers prove less than perfect.
According to Market Realist, the Big Blue Oval has secured record-breaking results in 2017's first and second quarters - with its F-Series delivering a 15% year-to-year rise in August alone. This half-ton fleet (which boasts the F-150, F-250, and F-350) earned an impressive 77,007 total unit sales and that easily ensured victory over Dodge, Toyota, and GM.
It also generated strong profits for Ford - with the Market Realist noting an overall 10% volume increase for 2017. With every sale these trucks deliver best-in-class performance and undeniable value.
The question that plagues Wall Street analysts now is whether Ford can sustain such a powerful lead. Given the mid-year results of the 2017 F-Series (which has surpassed all previous brand milestones), we expect the answer to be a resounding of course.

Too often has comfort belonged to the crossover market, with big-bodied platforms delivering the plush fabrics and soft-touch materials drivers crave. These models monopolize space, style, and convenience; and they prove unwilling to share with their fastback brethren.
The 2017 Mustang GT Premium doesn’t need their permission. This Ford pony-car offers comfort to the sports vertical, redefining driver expectations with every mile.
According to US News, the 2017 GT Premium embraces its name. Within this pony platform drivers will discover a wealth of upscale options, including:
Leather-Trimmed Bucket Seats - which ensure optimal comfort through their multi-level heating and cooling functions.
Dual-Zone Climate Controls - which allow for custom temperatures.
Sophisticated Trims - which define the doors, headliners, and console panels with vinyl and leather.
Accent and Ambient Lighting - which help to reduce road glare through soft, eye-friendly shades (including the signature Ice Blue).
These elements distinguish the 2017 Mustang GT from the competition, with Ford fusing the cabin with a sleek new design. Complementing technologies (including a nine-speaker audio system and the SYNC 3 infotainment console) further enhance the highway experience.

With every mile comes a wince - the creaky strain of a trailer, the wheeze of a suspension. Your truck is struggling beneath a too-heavy haul and you fear that the entire chassis will break, especially as a sharp curve draws near. Your fingers cross against the steering wheel and you pray the engine won’t give out.
Ford wants to answer that prayer. WIth the release of the 2017 F-350 Super Duty, it provides drivers with the half-ton performance they deserve - ensuring that no payload proves too great.
According to AutoWeek, the new F-350 is a trailering beast. Anchored by a 6.2L V8 engine, this truck offers up to 16,200 pounds of conventional towing. A robust 4WD accommodates changing roadways with ease, delivering twin-I coil spring performance; while the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission smoothly adapts to every incline. Vacuum-boosted anti-lock brakes provide precise stoppage, and a suite of support systems (including Sway Control, Roll Stability Control, and steering dampers) promise fluid responses.
The 2017 F-350 was meant for the toughest hauls - boasting a cargo volume of 78.5 cu.-ft and payload capabilities of up to 7,000 pounds. It’s a 385 HP monster that can cater to every driver need, making it ideal for work, play, or every errand in between.

The new era of performance has begun - with Ford introducing drivers to its latest F-Series fleet. These half-ton powerhouses are redefining the market, delivering V8 capability and best-in-class strength; and they will soon roar onto the global sales chart.
The 2018 F-150 Platinum will ensure that they reach the top.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the new F-150 Platinum is a monster on the highway. Bolstered by a 5.0L V8, this pick-up can generate up to 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. A 10-speed transmission anchors the drivetrain, pairing with smart mobility solutions (such as hill descent assist technology and a terrain management system) to improve handling; while Intelligent AWD promises rugged responses.
The true value of any truck, however, is its towing performance - and the 2018 F-150 Platinum should impress every driver. This mid-size platform delivers up to 11,600 pounds of conventional trailering and 3,270 payload pounds. This shatters all segment records and allows Ford to (once again) push the boundaries of pick-up strength.
Prepare for all-terrain power.
