ROB & CAROL
We purchased a 2019 Ford Truck from Key West, the sales rep Erick Menon was a great help, he was keen to ensure we got exactly what we were looking for, he was not pushy or aggressive, felt more like dealing with a friend than a car salesman!
Michael Nokes assisted with the purchase and was able to help cut through all the differences in offers that we were seeing on the internet and compare apples to apples. I truly appreciated the effort to explain the technical differences and the pros and cons of the options, this helped us pin point exactly what we wanted.
Key West has a huge selection of vehicles, so once we identified the options and price range, they were able to select one from the lot that matched our needs and gave us a choice of colours.
We would definitely go back to Key West Ford and recommend them to our friends and family!
Erick was extremely helpful in finding our perfect truck!...
Erick was extremely helpful in finding our perfect truck! He wasn’t pushy at all and made sure we found exactly what we needed! We will be back!
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
You defy the trends - seeking the road less traveled, searching for answers to questions never asked. Common isn’t a word within your lexicon… and the iPhone certainly isn’t in your pocket. Android is instead your device of choice.
Nissan applauds your differences - and wishes to accommodate them through seamless smartphone integration. Check out the 2018 LEAF and its Android Auto system!
According to Nissan, the 2018 LEAF will cater to more than Apple fans. Instead Android users will (finally) find their needs addressed - with the Connect infotainment console proving perfectly compatible. Sync your device and discover endless applications, including:
Google Assistant - utilize voice-commands to access this program, which maintains schedules, records notes, and reads text messages aloud. It acts as a digital secretary while traveling.
Google Maps - this real-time option displays both the road and its conditions, recognizing potential hazards (such as poor weather or reported crashes). It can quickly calculate alternative routes, and it offers turn-by-turn navigation through 3D mapping and interactive GPS.
Music Content - Android Auto boasts a suite of media options, allowing drivers to customize their playlists. Stream songs from Spotify and Pandora; access files from your Google accounts; and use the steering wheel-mounted controls to scan through the AM/FM radio.
The 2018 LEAF delivers an alternative to the iPhone, allowing Android users to maintain seamless connectivity. To learn more contact us today!
It’s a tradition of dull lines - with the electric market defined by bulky plastics and unforgiving vinyls. Great efficiency demands a sacrifice of design, and drivers resign themselves to hastily crafted cabins.
Nissan thinks it’s time for a change - which is why it’s offering Seattle families the sleek style they crave, bolstering its 2018 LEAF S with a brand-new interior! Let’s take a peek inside.
Open the door of the 2018 LEAF S and smile. The days of bland design are gone - with this all-electric platform boasting plush cloth seating (which, as Kelley Blue Book notes, delivers metallic-inspired coloring and available contrast stitching). The soft-materials of the dashboard and center stack console feature a taupe-scheme, while a seven-inch instrument gauge offers vivid LCD lighting. A slick rotary-style transmission provides a retro-touch, and aluminum accents are found throughout.
Nissan believes that variety is the spice of life - which is why it’s fused the 2018 LEAF S with several distinct color options. Drivers can create a custom cabin by choosing: Light Gray, Solid Black, or Black and Blue.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan allows drivers to achieve mid-size styling in the EV market. To learn more about the S' available cabin features contact our team today.
Complacency is a dirty word - which is why Nissan has struck it from the company lexicon, refusing to acknowledge its existence. Engineers aren’t allowed to whisper it; designers can’t debate its merits; and compliance officers must never entertain its meaning. Instead they must all emphasize innovation with every breath.
It’s this vocabulastic dedication that has enabled Nissan to launch its 2018 LEAF - and dominate the global market.
According to Electrek, the 2018 LEAF will soon rev from country to country. Nissan is expanding its production processes, seeking to establish itself in every corner of the world; and, to do this, it’s bringing an all-green initiative to seven additional markets: Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Nissan has never proven a strong presence in these areas - with sales trailing its Ford and Honda competitors. The brand is confident, however, that the 2018 LEAF will deliver massive sales. This all-electric hatchback has already earned record-breaking pre-orders in Europe and the United States; and consumer interest is at a high. It’s the perfect time, therefore, to dominate the Australasia market.
How will the LEAF accomplish this task? We believe its e-powertrain will impress every driver - yielding a peppy 147 HP (a 38% increase over the previous generation) and 236 lb.-ft of torque (a 26% increase, respectively). The laminated lithium-ion battery cells provide 60% more energy acceleration to ensure a 150-mile range; and the recently stiffened torsion bar allows for stable handling. This platform will maneuver through every challenge with ease.

In 1962 Madeleine L’Engle introduced readers to her tesseract-world - transporting them across space and dreams alike. A Wrinkle In Time (which charted the adventures of young Meg Murray) brought weighty science-fiction themes to children, allowing them to explore life, death, and love. The book proved an instant success and has remained a steady presence on the charts ever since.
Soon it will also beguile screen audiences - with Disney bringing a live-action version to theaters in March 2018. This adaptation will star Hollywood elite (Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Oprah Winfrey); and it will also serve as the new Nissan LEAF’s first leading role.
According to Inside EVs, the 2018 LEAF will make its debut in the Wrinkle In Time film. This hatchback will rev onto the screen, providing lithium-ion power to Meg Murray and her friends. Its aerodynamic body - complete with slim side panels and a drag-reducing rear diffuser - will prove perfect for traveling between worlds, effortlessly adapting to every changing incline; while its portable trickle-charge cable will ensure on-the-go ease, delivering a 120-volt connection to bolster the battery. Intelligent Trace Control technology should keep the platform right on track, engaging the tires as needed to ensure smooth cornering; and Active Ride software will mitigate bumps to promote a smooth experience.
Meg and her team will certainly find inter-dimensional travel much easier!

It’s the highest of expectations - with critics tallying every pre-order, calculating potential sales and possible profits. The 2018 LEAF is revving toward Seattle; and behind it trails a long shadow, with the success of its predecessors looming. Can this platform continue the record-breaking pace Nissan has set within the EV market?
We think it can.
According to CNET, anticipation is mounting for the 2018 LEAF - with 13,000 units pre-ordered for the United States. This is an unprecedented number, with none of the previous Nissan platforms delivering such high interest; and critics believe that (when the hatchback arrives later this year) it will zip to the top of the charts.
The Kirkland team agrees. On January 1st we were thrilled to debut the 2018 LEAF to our customers - and the response was both immediate and enthusiastic. Drivers were thrilled by this platform’s innovative all-electric powertrain (which combines a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery with a 110-kW synchronous motor) and exclusive e-pedal system (which eliminates the traditional brake and accelerator design, blending them together instead for a single control unit). The promise of a 100% off-the-line torque experience left them amazed, with all 236 lb.-ft maximized for quick accelerations; while the 240-volt outlet yields charge times as low as one hour.
The 2018 LEAF is poised to dominate the Seattle market - and we can’t wait to see this platform purring down every street. To learn more contact us today.
Above the Nissan threshold once waited a neon sign - its border lined in red, its face angrily glowing. Across its insides read 300,000 and every zero blazed with fluorescent intensity. This was a milestone that none thought obtainable, a goal no one believed achievable; and each day the number flashed its disappointment.
That has (finally) changed.
According to Electrek, Nissan has just delivered its 300,000 LEAF to the market - making it the world’s best-selling EV platform! Strong responses in the United States and Japan have propelled this hatchback to the top of the charts; and no competitor (including Ford’s Fusion, Toyota’s Prius, or Chevrolet's Malibu Hybrid) has managed to secure such staggering month-to-month growth: with critics noting a jump from 1,457 units in November 2017 to 1,899 units in December 2017.
These numbers prove undeniably impressive - and, with the impending release of the 2018 LEAF, we expect Nissan to remain the leading EV brand. Anchored by a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery, this platform will yield 124 MPGe in the city and 101 MPGe on the highway. Its 150-mile all-electric range will prove perfect for daily commuters, sparing them frequent station visits; while its 147 HP powertrain will ensure peppy traveling. The next generation of performance is on its way.
We believe 300,000 will soon be replaced with 400,000 - with the LEAF leading the sales charge.

The Consumer Electronics Show 2018 is set to kick off in Las Vegas today, and Nissan is ready to make a serious splash. Among other announcements and reveals, the revered automaker is excited to show the all-new, zero-emissions 2018 LEAF to attendees.
The 2018 LEAF has been thoughtfully redesigned from the ground up. The engine and 40-kilowatt lithium-ion battery combine for sensational results. Power is in no short supply, as the car is capable of outputting 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque. There’s an increased driving range of 150 miles on a single charge—a significant boost over the outgoing model by a total of 43. And the MPGe of the hatchback is a wicked 124 city / 101 highway.
Let’s take a moment to talk about ProPILOT Advanced Driving Assistance, too. It senses where surrounding cars are and makes automatic measures to control the distance between them and your LEAF. The system will also keep you centered in your lane. Further, e-Pedal technology lets you operate the vehicle using only the accelerator—you can start, stop, and increase or decrease speed through that one input.
Hey, Seattle! The 2018 Nissan LEAF is almost here—it’s due to arrive early this year—and it’s bringing smart technology along with it. ProPILOT Assist functionality is set to change the way you drive.
The all-electric, zero-emissions 2018 Nissan LEAF utilizes the aforementioned ProPILOT Assist’s driving functionality to advance the way Seattleites and those the world over commute. Traffic Aware Cruise Control (TACC) detects cars traveling to the front of your vehicle once you pick a speed, and then intelligently adjusts your setting up or down as necessary to compensate for the automobiles around you.
TACC is superb, but that isn’t the only clever trick ProPILOT Assist has up its sleeve. Because it’s semi-autonomous, it will keep the LEAF centered within its lane when the feature is activated via the handy blue button on the steering wheel. And although Nissan still considers it a “hands-on” system, it will even handle stop-and-go traffic for you. What a boon for those dealing with pesky morning commutes!
Nissan today announced an incredible global milestone—the shipment of their 300,000th LEAF since the vehicle first went on sale in 2010. It’s a fantastic achievement for the world’s best-selling all-electric car and sets the table for the amazing advancements the next-generation EV has in store when it releases later this year.
The 2018 Nissan LEAF will surely quickly add to the success of the line when it hits showrooms across Seattle and North America in the months ahead. It’s powered by sensational technology, including an engine that generates 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque, an increase of 40 horses and nearly 50-lb.-ft. over the 2017 model. And with a new 40-kWh lithium-ion battery, drivers will benefit from a 150-mile range on a single charge.
The new LEAF is a looker, as well. The familiar “V-Motion” chrome front grille is featured, although it’s finished by a striking blue geometric pattern that’s decidedly futuristic. The hood of the car now offers greater curvature for enhanced aerodynamics, too.
The time has come, Seattle! Soon Kirkland Nissan will open its doors - ushering in a new generation of all-electric performance. Join us as we unveil the 2018 LEAF.
For days we’ve been readying our lot - gathering door prizes, hanging banners, ensuring that every detail proves perfect. As the only dealership in the United States to feature the new LEAF, we wanted to set the stage for an event like no other; and now it’s time to turn on the spotlight. From 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. we’ll showcase Nissan’s latest (and greatest) EV platform. Watch as we pull back the curtain and reveal the true potential of lithium-ion power.
The 2018 LEAF promises a new era of performance. Bolstered by an advanced linear drivetrain, this platform offers an electric range of 150 miles. Its EMS7 motor generates a responsive 147 HP and 236 lb.-ft of torque; while the 40-kWh lithium-ion battery offers smart-charging capabilities, requiring a mere 40 minutes to achieve an 80% burst of power. The nimble profile (defined by a 60.6-inch front track and a 61.2-inch rear, respectively) weaves between Seattle traffic with ease, utilizing its aerodynamic panels for a smooth 8-second 0 to 60 rev.
This zero-emission hatch will prove a welcome addition to the Washington highways - and we can’t wait to highlight its many features to our customers.
