Fantastic dealer!

From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford. I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day. Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time. Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.

We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.

Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for. All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful

Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.

Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics. We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal. The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new. We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

Exploring the great outdoors necessitates modes of transportation that are adaptable to various terrains and environments. The 2017 Ford Explorer provides just that and more, which may explain why it's often considered as both a rugged sports utility vehicle and an all-wheel-drive family wagon. With the ability to comfortably seat seven - while providing sufficient packing space amidst luxurious interior elements - its chameleon-like features make it a fitting choice both for on-the-go adventurers and drivers with multiple passengers in tow. And speaking of tow, the 2017 Explorer can haul up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. 

The potential of the 3.5-liter V-6 base engine alone deserves recognition for the Explorer's superior towing abilities. Aaron Cole of TheCarConnection.com notes that the engine is
substantially "more potent than many of the old V-8s," which explains why it's incorporated into other Ford vehicles, such as the Flex and Fusion. "In the Explorer, it's rated at 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque and capable of mid-eight-second runs up to 60 mph," Cole states, adding that "It's mated to a 6-speed automatic and can power all four wheels in XLT trims and higher."

Watch the Explorer take on the 'tough love' of the elements in the video below:



On Platinum and Sport models of the Explorer, drivers will note the engine's all-wheel drive; as an available option on XLT models and a standard option on AWD Limited models, the supercharged 2.3-liter Ecoboost inline-4 makes a statement with its capacity to tow up to 3,000 pounds. Regardless of which model buyers go for, all Explorers offer a MacPherson strut front suspension with isolated subframe, as well as a multi-link rear setup that operates independently. Front and rear stabilizer bars also make their debut in the updated 2017 version of the Explorer.

Towing capacity 
receives even more time in the spotlight when the vehicle is off-road, where the Explorer is able to shine as it overcomes mud, bumps and more. Its multi-traction drive system can switch from Normal to Mud and Ruts, Sand, and Snow modes, maximizing one's driving experience despite unfavorable conditions. Whether one is transporting sports gear or a large family, assurance with accelerating and braking on steep hills, slippery roads and more is part of the package.
