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!

Earlier this month, Nissan unveiled its two latest concept vehicles at the 2018 Madrid Motor Show in Spain and the timing couldn’t be any better with the summer travel season upon us. Allow us to introduce to you the Nissan NV300 and e-NV200.
Both concepts are engineered to be used as campers, providing an interior and exterior design well-suited for life in the great outdoors. The colorful NV300 and e-NV200 are outfitted with bike racks, roll-out shades and pop-up roof tents, while the inside is equipped with a small kitchenette that includes a refrigerator, sink, range and dining table. There is room for two beds (one in the roof and one down below) for four people and both vans have heating, thus further extending the use of the campers into the cooler months.
As for power, the NV300 runs on a 1.6-liter turbo diesel, which is not available in North America, and the e-NV200 offers zero-emissions performance from its 40 kWh battery pack. It's good for about 124 miles of range, which is fantastic for a camper of this caliber.
Alas, there are no plans to release the Nissan NV300 and e-NV200 on Seattle soil, however, one can wish! To chat more about these concept vehicles or our line-up available vans, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for more.

Last week at the Geneva International Motor Show, Nissan dropped the curtain on its newest concept vehicle – the IMx KURO. If this electric crossover looks familiar to you, it’s because it is – Nissan originally revealed the IMx at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.
Since then, the automaker has made some exciting enhancements to the IMx KURO. This mighty machine now boasts an all-new look with black trim and wheels, an updated grille, and a new dark gray body color, which is generating a great deal of buzz.
But, more importantly, the IMx KURO is also providing consumers with a glimpse into Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the company's vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. According to Nissan, the concept vehicle is designed to strengthen the link between car and driver as a close, reliable partner that delivers a safer, more convenient and exciting drive.
The tech-inclusions in the IMx KURO reflect this viewpoint. For one, it features Brain to Vehicle (B2V) technology, which interprets signals from the driver’s mind to assist in maneuvering the IMx. The Kuro concept also builds on Nissan’s ProPILOT technology by offering fully autonomous operation. When in ProPILOT mode, the system stows the steering wheel inside the dash and reclines all seats, giving the driver more space to enjoy their commute.
Like all Nissan concept cars, the IMx KURO won’t be available for purchase. However, many of the concept’s cutting-edge technologies will make their way to the market for mass consumption. To learn more about autonomous driving and how it’s changing the future of driving, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to chat.

At the end of 2017, we shared news about one of Nissan's latest concepts called Easy Ride. Together with their partner, DeNA Company, Ltd., the innovators have been working tirelessly to launch a new robo-vehicle mobility service that uses autonomous driving technologies.
Well, it appears that Nissan and DeNA are getting closer to having their dream become a reality. Just last week, it was announced that field testing of the Easy Ride concept is set to begin on March 5, 2018, in Japan's Minatomirai district of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture.
During the trial, participants will be able to travel in vehicles equipped with autonomous driving technologies along a set route, which runs 4.5 kilometers between Nissan's Global Headquarters and the Yokohama World Porters Shopping Center. Using a dedicated mobile app, participants will be able to input their desired activity using text or voice and choose from a list of recommended destinations. An in-car tablet will show selections of nearly 500 recommended places of interest and events within the vicinity, and provide exclusive money-saving coupons.
In return, participants must complete a survey about their overall user experience, thoughts about the content and coupon offerings, as well as preferred pricing for the Easy Ride service. Nissan and DeNA will then use these results to further develop the concept for additional field tests or launch time.
There's still no set date as to when Easy Ride will hit the global stage, but as news is released, we'll be sure to share more on our blog. In the meantime, should you have questions about Nissan's autonomous driving technologies, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington to speak with a member of our sales team.

Recently, Nissan unveiled its Xmotion concept car at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, receiving rave reviews from industry insiders and automotive enthusiasts alike. But, that's not all the Xmotion received - it was also awarded the EyesOn Award, which recognizes innovative use of colors, graphics and materials.
The Xmotion concept fuses Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship with American-style utility and next-generation Intelligent Mobility technology. The exterior features a dynamic presence with an understated sculptural body, which includes flared fenders, U-shaped headlights, and a bold evolution of Nissan's signature V-motion grille. All of this is contrasted by the rugged metal-crafted wheels and all-terrain tire design.
Two colors were selected for use on the exterior - most notably is the silver pewter-like color, which is a metal traditionally found in Japanese fine art. This color flows beautifully with the dark black accents and red headlights, and showcases the various body shapes and contours found on the car.
Inside, the Xmotion's crafted interior design also pays homage to Nissan's roots with a Japanese landscape that incorporates advanced graphic user interfaces and autonomous driving technologies. The use of color was carefully considered in an effort to bring together tradition and modernity. Automotive enthusiasts are still talking about the virtual koi fish, which swims between the console and middle-mounted armrest touchscreen.
And while the Xmotion is not set to hit the production line anytime soon - or at all - it continues to highlight how Nissan is always on the cutting-edge of technology by bringing leading innovations to the masses.

Yesterday, Nissan unveiled a brand new concept vehicle at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, called the Xmotion (pronounced “cross-motion”). And just 24 hours later, the six-passenger three-row crossover SUV is already receiving rave reviews for its sleek exterior lines and sharp angles, as well as its unique interior, which blends touchscreen displays, innovative control mechanisms, and a futuristic look that’s clean, modern, and expressive.
According to Nissan, the Xmotion concept fuses Japanese culture and traditional craftsmanship with American-styling and next-generation Intelligent Mobility technology. The exterior features a dynamic presence with an understated sculptural body, which includes prominently flared fenders, wedge-shaped headlights, and a bold evolution of Nissan’s iconic V-motion grille. It’s an expression of dramatic simplicity, which is wonderfully contrasted by the rugged metal-crafted wheels and all-terrain tire design. Some automotive journalists have likened the concept vehicle to that of a futuristic version of the cult-classic Nissan Xterra, which they claim is a good thing.
And while the exterior of the Xmotion is incredibly interesting, the interior of this concept vehicle is what’s truly astounding. Inside, it features a crafted design that pays homage to Nissan’s roots by combining a symbolic representation of a Japanese landscape with an advanced user interface and autonomous driving technologies.
This includes a digital assistant that’s personified as a virtual koi fish on the in-car displays. It swims between the console and a middle-mounted armrest touchscreen, and can intelligently program interior cabin conditions based on the destination and user preferences. The virtual koi also assists the Xmotion when in autonomous mode, providing key information about the current route and potential slowdowns, while also handling driving duties.
As for what’s under the hood, Nissan didn’t specify powertrain specs since the Xmotion is an expression of design and technology, versus power and performance. And seeing that it is a concept vehicle, it isn’t intended for production, however, many industry watchers expect that the Xmotion's design cues may find their way to future Nissan SUVs, like the rumored Xterra. Time will be the judge of that.

The 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) kicks off tomorrow in Detroit with The Gallery. This exclusive event gives attendees an up-close look at the most exquisite and acclaimed collection of automobiles in the world, totaling $10 million.
In preparation for the 2018 NAIAS, Nissan has released a subtle teaser, which is generating a great deal of buzz. Speculation is growing amongst industry insiders as many wonder if Nissan will be unveiling an autonomous concept car at the motor show.
The 42-second video features modernistic artwork, which demonstrates how Nissan is using tradition to bridge to the future of mobility. The message is rather cryptic, but automotive watchers have suggested that the automaker is hinting at an upcoming concept car that combines Nissan’s familiar design cues with all-new self-driving safety technologies.
Many suspect that the concept car will also feature a hybrid or all-electric powertrain, given Nissan’s recent launch of the next-gen Leaf EV, as well as other electric concepts at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. At the recent 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the automaker also showcased its “Brain-to-Vehicle” autonomous technology, which uses brainpower to perform maneuvers quicker than the human body can react.
Needless to say, Nissan has been cooking up an amazing array of innovative technologies that have the automotive industry buzzing with excitement. To learn more, be sure to follow our blog as we cover news and highlights from the 2018 NAIAS or stop into Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to speak with a product advisor.
You’ve heard us chatting about the Consumer Electronics Show in this space before, and today we wanted to bring all you tech enthusiasts a little more information about the Japanese automaker’s scheduled appearance this upcoming year. The Las Vegas event, set to kick off on January 9, will mark the reiteration of the manufacturer’s commitment to Intelligent Mobility as well as the U.S. debut of the IMx concept vehicle.
One of the technologies Nissan will have on display at CES 2018 is their ProPILOT Assist. It’s a progressive adaptive cruise control system that’s set to move the industry forward with its inclusion on upcoming vehicles, including the all-new LEAF. It imbues an automobile with the ability to automatically manage its distance from any car traveling ahead, selectively braking to maintain proper separation. However, it also keeps the machine centered within its lane, adjusting steering as necessary. Fantastic!
The IMx concept vehicle is set to wow, too. It offers fully autonomous driving via its PD mode. With that selected, the wheel stows away, all seats recline, and the computer takes over completely. Nissan’s wonder car automatically takes you to your destination, accelerating, braking, and steering all the way.

In early January, global innovators and pioneering thinkers will gather together at CES 2018 to showcase groundbreaking consumer technologies that promise to transform the lives of people around the globe.

At their booth, attendees will get a glimpse of Nissan’s IMX Concept Vehicle, which was recently revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show. The all-new 2018 Leaf and Rogue will also be on display, in conjunction with compelling presentations highlighting ProPILOT Assist – an autonomous driving technology that is available on both models.

This year’s Dubai International Motor Show offered car enthusiasts in the Middle East the opportunity to witness the future of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility initiative. Two of the all-electric wonder cars on display were the 2018 LEAF and the prototype BladeGlider.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility is set to make the world safer and more efficient through self-driving technology and all-electric design, and the next-generation 2018 LEAF represents the initiative perfectly. Unveiled for the first time in the Middle East, the vehicle has been selected as the Official Automotive Partner for Expo 2020 Dubai and has been branded accordingly. When it releases early next year in Seattle and elsewhere, the car will come packed with an engine capable of 147 horses and 236-lb.-ft. of torque.
Alongside the LEAF was the futuristic BladeGlider. While only a prototype, it exists to provide the public with an idea of where Nissan Intelligent Mobility is going in the future, whether you live in Seattle, Dubai, or elsewhere. Donning a sports car design, the fascinating vehicle merges an exhilarating open-top structure with the safety of a coupe. Early models have been powered by a five-module lithium-ion battery rated at 220kW.
It’s been a busy 2017 Tokyo Motor Show for Nissan. The Japanese car manufacturer has unveiled the next-gen LEAF, a new fully autonomous driving system due for 2020 and, not to be overlooked, a fresh take on the modern delivery vehicle. The e-NV200 Fridge Concept van is set to change the way companies in the restaurant and hospitality sectors do business.
Nissan has endeavored to solve urban delivery challenges with the e-NV200. Their solution? A more compact van that maneuvers swiftly and easily through urban locales. Further, the zero-emissions vehicle has a self-powered refrigeration unit that makes chilled food storage a cinch.
The all-electric nature of the e-NV200 will mark a boon for commercial customers, as gas savings will reduce the cost of ownership across the life of the automobile. The van will be stocked with a lithium-ion battery that produces 24 kWh to generate speed and acceleration, while there will be a separate 12 kWh pack solely to power the e-Fridge.
We encourage you to give us here at Kirkland Nissan of Seattle a call at any time if you’re interested in learning more about commercial vans.
