Very happy to deal with Jag. Got a new F150 at a great deal and he was able to close the deal within minutes. The truck was courtesy detailed and he made sure I had no questions before I left the dealership. Would deal with the dealership again in the future.

I was looking for good quality used car for my daughter who is attending University. Found car that she liked in excellent condition at Key West Ford dealership in New Westminster. Received fantastic deal from Jag who followed through with a minor servicing item before delivery. Jag was courteous to our family and pleasure to deal with. We appreciated keeping us apprised of detail and items through follow up. Great and friendly dealership of which I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a car to purchase.

Great experience

I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.

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.
