I have been dealing with Key West for quite a few years for both purchasing and servicing of my FORD cars. I have always found them to be sincere, helpful and easy to deal with for my purchases and listen to what you are asking for. As far as servicing, they are honest and go the extra to make sure you are happy.
Key West Ford
We went to Key West because they had an excellent selection of pre-owned Ford Flex's in stock. We were coming in from out of town to make the purchase, so arranging to have the vehicle available for test drives, getting some service work done prior to taking possession, and then getting the vehicle to us in Kelowna required some coordination. Overall, there were a lot of moving parts to this deal, but Colton the service rep handled everything smoothly and got us into our new car. We're very happy with our new car and with all aspects of our experience at Key West.
I recently needed a new vehicle and had a wonderful experience last time I bought new vehicle at key west ford so once again I go and visit the wonderful people at key west , and sure enough they go above and beyond to help me into another vehicle. I recommend visit key west ford if looking for a vehicle , I’m a customer for life won’t go anywhere else.
Friendly knowledgeable staff. They truly know how to treat people. Robert made me feel welcome and I will recommend Key West to my family and friends
My search for a family SUV
Having worked in the service industry myself for over 15 years I appreciate good customer service when I see it.
My experience with the team at Key West Ford was exceptional.
From Yashar in the service department to Rob Vanoverschot and Mike Nokes in the sales office the experience was always friendly, professional and most importantly one where I felt my family's needs were of the highest priority.
We test drove many SUV's of different makes and models and our final decision was unanimous. The Ford Explorer Sport ticked all the boxes for us and more with the quality of the drive, tech package, moon roof and mid console and captain's seats for the kids. A gorgeous vehicle and one we can't wait to drive and take on many long family road trips!
Thank you Key West Ford, you guys are awesome!
Jag Dhillon was very willing to work out a deal with us and made us feel comfortable with our decisions. Definitely recommend Jag and Key West Ford.
Thank you for your help
We just purchased a car from Peter Olson and it was great shopping experience with him. Peter was very knowledgeable about cars, and introduced a lot of detailed features to us. During the price negotiation, we didn't feel push, he worked hard to get the best price for us. Highly recommend to buy a car with him.

Buying used Truck
We found Allan and Ivan very helpful and genuine sales people to deal with. Knowledgeable about a truck that was not their brand. Allan let us have as much time as we wanted to check the vehicle out and test drive.
When it came to setting a price we could live with, they never dismissed or misled us but worked with us to find a happy medium we could all live with. We offered a price $2300 below asking as the truck had been on the lot for a while. They came back with a price that was very close and agreeable. Nick then took over the financial arrangements and we are very happy as he helped us to make the deal as painless as possible.
Overall, it was a great experience. No pushiness or slick talk. We felt that everyone was honest and helpful in explaining everything to us and helping us. We felt they were on our side trying to make this deal happen - and it did.
P & W
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.
While SUVs have waxed and waned along the automotive scene, the Ford Explorer offers a rare permanency. This mid-size option debuted in 1990 and has since become one of the world’s most popular (and most enduring) vehicles.
Keeping pace with manufacturing trends is no simple task. Ford, however, has constantly adapted its Explorer to the demands of the public, creating a SUV that’s always powerful and always capable. When the first generation model appeared in April of 1990, it was met with much acclaim - with critics and drivers alike celebrating its V6 capacity, four-wheel drivetrain and push-button shifting. These features secured high sales, topping the charts with approximately 140,000 units.
Back in the 90’s I owned a forest green 1991 Ford Explorer. The 1991 was Ford’s roll out of the Explorer replacing the Bronco II (which was in my opinion a horrible vehicle). Before the Explorer I owned a full sized Bronco. The full size Bronco was an amazing work horse but mostly it shined off road. I could blast through the out back and explore logging roads of the Cascades. My young daughters and I enjoyed many an off road adventure. I loved it but it was still a truck – a noisy, bumpy and ‘roughing it’ truck at that.
The Explorer for me took the concept of off road and comfort to a whole level. It had power, comfort and looks while being a great utility vehicle for transporting the kids to school, sports and various activities in and around Seattle. It was still a four-wheel drive and I didn’t have to jump out in the typical Pacific Northwest fowl weather and switch it on – there was a switch inside the vehicle.
Back then there were many improvements made to the Explorer that made a 4X4 ride like a car on the highway but give you the confidence of being higher up. Today the Explorer is still as popular as it was when it hit the streets and back roads in 1991!
Ford wasn’t content to languish in its initial success. Instead it reinvented the Explorer - again and again. Each year it’s fused this model with new technology and dynamic drivetrains. This has inspired strong sales and multiple variants, including the XLT, the Limited, the Sport and the Platinum. Five generations deliver optimum performance.
The Explorer serves as a cornerstone of Ford, launching its SUV lineup to the top of the charts. To accomplish this it’s offered drivers several notable features, including:
The Cologne V6 Engine: the Explorer was among the first Fords to boast a 4.0 Cologne V6, connecting consumers to hydraulic roller lifters, pushrod functionality and 225 lb.-ft of torque.
Flex-Fuel Technology: the Explorer embraced flex-fuel technology, combining ethanol and gasoline for superior economy.
Terrain Management System: though not the first to offer a Terrain Management System, the Explorer none-the-less defined the feature. It combined electronic stability control with distinct drive modes, ensuring greater precision on the road.
Ford understands the SUV market. This is why it fuses the Explorer with so many crucial functions.
The decades have been kind to the Ford Explorer, securing it many awards. These include:
Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year: 1994 Automobile Magazine’s Readers’ Choice All-Star List: 1998 Consumer Guide’s Best Buy: 2000 Edmund’s Most Wanted Vehicle: 2003 AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle: 2010
North American Truck of the Year: 2011
Few vehicles have left such a lasting impression as the Explorer. This Ford powerhouse shapes the SUV market.
