Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
55
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...

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!

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.

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.

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.
