I got a good deal on my Elantra gt hatchback. Jag was super nice and showed me everything about the cars I liked. Got a good car on my budget. Also all the staff were super nice. I highly recommend key west ford.
Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!
Easy going, not pushy and personable
Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!
Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind,
Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!
Jag was super help full and well knowable of the cars
he did great job to explain everything and at the end help to set up Bluetooth and navigation system I am really thankful to Jag for this experience
Great service and for sure will come back afin
Great sales and communication
I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.
Excellent service and follow through
We were window shopping for a new vehicle in the near future. Tom showed us exactly what we wanted and made the deal happen today. We are exceptionally happy with his service and would recommend friends and family go see him at Key West Ford!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff that made it easy to decide on a vehicle. We are happy with the experience and would definitely recommend this dealership.
Change is a good thing
Best attention to my needs & very respectful 😊
Jag and the team are very hospitable. They all made me feel as tho’ I was their guest. I was lucky that they had exactly what I needed in the lot and I was given the best deal I could have hoped for. Thank you, Jag !
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.
