Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
My experience at Key West Ford
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice.
Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team.
Thank you so much.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.
Excellent customer service!
Highly recommend Peter Olsen for sales. Super helpful and very authentic. Definitely one of my best experiences thus far.
Thank You, Peter!

When it comes to racing, no other vehicle does it better than the 2019 Ford Mustang GT. As America’s favorite muscle car, this all-new version comes with a nifty system known as TrackApps. It helps to enhance performance by measuring multiple metrics and storing the information.
To access these features, you can navigate the Main Menu screen by using the five-way control buttons located on the left side of your steering wheel. This monitor is conveniently situated between the speedometer and tachometer for easy viewing.
You may choose Accelerometer, Acceleration Timer, Brake Performance, Line Lock, and Launch Control. All of these operations help to prime and prep the Mustang for optimal execution. You can keep tabs on your stats by looking at the “All Time Best” category. This saves your results for future reference. To reset everything, you can always clear the data.
So, the next time your buddy with a Camaro challenges you to a drag race, you will be more than ready to smoke him!

You know the Ford Explorer’s a great looking vehicle just from a glance at the exterior. But what’s going on within it? Fortunately, we can attest that the 2019 model it’s just as striking on the inside and comes complete with quality details that are both stylish and functional.
First, let’s start by talking about those seats. They are clad with lavishly soft and supple Nirvana leather that sports micro-perforations and quilted inserts. These cushions are heated throughout the front and the rear, keeping occupants toasty in the winter months. They’re spectacular!
Of course, there’s plenty more going on within the interior of the 2019 Ford Explorer. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and is heated as well. It also comes with distinctive stitching and real wood accents. Plus, we can’t neglect the awesome twin-panel moonroof. It’s powered and swiftly tilts/slides open, gifting you a nice breeze and robust sunlight on a beautiful day.
Ring us at Sound Ford now—we’d love to set you up with a test drive and a full vehicle walkthrough of this immensely impressive machine!
Ford’s big on passenger safety and they’ve certainly demonstrated that with the design of their popular 2019 Explorer. This vehicle incorporates smart features that keep occupants secure at all times!
The first safety inclusion we wish to address is this crossover’s SecuriCode system. This is a keyless entry pad on the driver’s door that doubles as a convenience feature. If you don’t have the time to fish out your fob or you’ve left it elsewhere, you can still access your cabin in a jiffy by inputting your previously programmed five-digit code.
Intriguingly, the 2019 Explorer also supplies class-exclusive inflatable rear safety belts. Available as an option, these are more advanced seat belts in that they are capable of distributing crash-force energy across more of the torso than competing solutions. They cradle the head and neck, are compatible with most child-safety boosters, and generally help prevent injury in the event of a crash.
The 2019 Explorer has plenty of substance—if you’ve read our entries on this page, you already understand that. So why not invest in a little extra style, too? This Ford machine looks positively stunning with optional appearance packages, and we’re going to detail two of those for you today.
This mid-size crossover’s Desert Copper Appearance Package looks positively fantastic. It bestows the machine with attractive sideview mirror caps, front grille bars, and sweeping lower door trim. It also adds dashing 20-inch Magnetic-painted wheels to the exterior. On the interior, Ebony Black leather-trimmed seats are featured, with each being graced with Foxfire contrasting stitching and Miko inserts. Swanky!
The 2019 Explorer also comes with the option of an XLT Sport Appearance package. This adds the aforementioned sideview mirror caps, Magnetic-painted grille bars, and awesome 20-inch Magnetic-painted 10-spoke tire rims. However, you also receive exterior accent trim and the nice touch of the “Explorer” badge across the front hood.
The Ford Fusion line is an amazing collection of sedans, and the Sport model is truly an enthusiast’s dream. It comes packed with a powerful 2.7L engine as well as immensely helpful performance technologies, including CCD suspension.
Packed under the hood of this stylish car is a wondrous 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost six-cylinder engine. Get ready to get up and go with serious aplomb—the motor creates a sensational 325 HP and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel-drive is offered standard, too, meaning you can take all this performance off-road.
Notably, the 2019 Fusion Sport also comes with CCD suspension. This stands for continuously controlled damping, which works on your behalf to make your ride as smooth and quiet as possible. It achieves this through the use of a suite of sensors that monitor your car’s body movement, suspension motion, braking, and steering in real-time, adjusting damping in milliseconds as necessary. Further, the system’s pothole mitigation offers protection against that danger and may save you money in tire repairs across the life of your car.
Functional advantages. Stylish accessories. That’s what the AWD and SE Appearance packages respectively bring to the 2019 Ford Fusion. This sedan looks fantastic and truly pampers its passengers!
The Fusion SE AWD Package brings the heat, literally and figuratively. Electronically warmed front seats and side-view mirrors comfort you in the winter months and ensure that your visibility remains high, respectively. Also, the premium floor liner throughout the front and back interior, as well as the 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheel rims, create a stellar aesthetic throughout.
Alternatively, you may opt for the SE Appearance package on the 2019 Ford Fusion. This delivers striking, shadowy and sensationally styled 18-inch Ebony Black-painted aluminum tire rims. In tandem with the included rear spoiler, you’re really going to make an impression on the neighbors! Additionally, this package brings halogen fog lamps to the table in order to minimize the danger of low-lying clouds. Plus, other niceties include a Light Putty cloth/vinyl bolster interior and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
All of us enjoy high-performance machines that are spacious and accommodating, and the 2019 Ford Explorer certainly qualifies as such. But if we have families, it isn’t lost upon any of us that safety is the most important part of any automobile. Fortunately, the Big Blue Oval has blessed this crossover with an available “Safe and Smart Package” that provides for maximum passenger security.
Driver-convenience features within Ford’s Safe and Smart package are bountiful and substantial. Auto high-beam headlights are included, ensuring maximum visibility is maintained at all times. Rain-sensing wipers kick in when you need them, automatically adjusting the speed of their operation to the rate of falling water. The lane-keeping system is super intelligent; not only will it warn you if you drift,it uses sensors to communicate with the onboard computer to autonomously correct your path as necessary. Plus, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning monitors the traveling speed of the vehicle ahead of you and automatically adjusts your velocity to maintain a suitable gap between your Explorer and them.

Not all sound systems are created equal and you don’t always have to be an audiophile to be able to tell the difference. The proper premium setup in an automobile can wildly improve its ability to offer superlative entertainment. Case in point: the Sony premium audio unit in the 2017 Ford Explorer.
This sound system offers serious quality! There are a total of 12 speakers packed into this Explorer, offering an output of 500 watts. Even more critical to the quality of this system, however, is the Clear Phase technology at work and its ability to manage sound distortion.
Here’s how Clear Phase works: It dials down and focuses the music across various parts of the soundstage via the use of sound dispersion elimination technology. Improved acoustics are attained by achieving linearity, flattening amplitude, and optimizing phase characteristics. This may all sound a bit confusing to the uninitiated but, trust us, the result is straightforward: You’ll be able to hear music the way the composers wanted.
There’s nothing quite like pony car performance. Ford has established a long legacy of greatness with its Mustang line and that certainly continues with the 2019 model. Today, we want to dial down on two specific features: Active Valve Performance Exhaust and 10-speed automatic transmission.
Available Active Valve Performance Exhaust on the 2019 Mustang enables you to output as much noise or “grunt” as you prefer—after all, sometimes you want to be heard and sometimes you don’t. Consider if you’re commuting to work and are still in your sleepy neighborhood in the AM. You can toggle to “Quiet Start” to keep it down so as not to disturb the neighbors. Conversely, if it’s the weekend and you’re ready to tear up the road, you may switch to the “Sport” setting to have the pony car elicit a full and throaty roar. (“Track” and “Normal” modes are also available.)
The 2019 Ford Mustang also features a ten-speed transmission. Aside from offering super-smooth operation, it’s been tweaked for positively optimal performance throughout its whole power band. Additionally, you get the enjoyment of wheel-mounted shift paddles.
