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!

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!

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.

Rather than toe the line and, engineers and designers at Ford Motor Company aren't afraid to tow-tally break boundaries and maximize potential. With the 2017 F-150, one particular improvement on the acclaimed truck is its towing capacity, which makes gains as the result of the new 3.5L, V-6 EcoBoost engine and the 10-speed transmission that comes along with it - its recorded towing capacity is a jaw-dropping 5,000 to 10,400 pounds.

With 365 horsepower at its beck and call, engineers at Ford say that the all-new engine was specifically modeled to haul heavy loads and tow trailers that pack on the pounds. Despite the greater weight capacity, the engine also has improved low-end and peak engine performance. The new 10-speed automatic transmission made its initial debut with the new high-performance Raptor pickup; however, the updated transmission feature is only available with the new EcoBoost V6. Watch the F-150 take the road in the video below:



“The Ford truck team lives to serve our hardworking truck customers,” Raj Nair, Ford's executive vice president of product development and chief technical officer, said. “The powertrain is the heart of every F-150, and together our all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost and 10-speed transmission will give our customers better power, efficiency and confidence.”

The better power,
efficiency and confidence Nair cites translates to superior towing, Jason Cannon writes for EquipmentWorld.com.

"Three overdrive gears and a wider ratio span enable lower-numerical rear-axle ratios to help improve fuel efficiency at highway
speeds, while maintaining best-in-class towing," he reports. "The 10-speed transmission uses advanced materials and alloys—and zero cast iron, a first for a Ford transmission—to save weight."

Further adding to the towing power is the engine's anti-idle feature Auto Start-Stop, which is provided as a standard for the F-150. It preserves fuel, ultimately helping to reduce CO2 emissions as a result of lower idle times, and is a perk especially pertinent to truck owners. Except when towing or in
four-wheel-drive mode, the Auto Start-Stop intuitively knows when to shut off the engine when the vehicle's at a stop.
