a wonderful shopping experience.
with all staff in seamless support, my salesperson - mr. peter olson, set an exceptional service standard not previously experienced.
Purchased a new F150
Peter Olson is a great sales rep! His friendly and professional character matches the picture.
He managed to find the exact truck I was looking for.
Gave me a descent trade in value for my 2013 f150.
Peter and Nicholas Terezakis (from finance) worked hard to get me this sweet ride.
I'm very happy with their service and would recommend Key West if you're considering a new or used Ford vehicle.
If you have an idea of what you want. Give Peter a call and he'll do his research to get you in it.
purchased a 2nd vehicle within 6 months
After dealing with Peter Olson for our purchase of a 2019 Ford Escape in November 2019 and Peter doing such a wonderful job for us, we decided to see him when we wanted to purchase a new F-150. He could not find anything that matched our exact wishes so we factory ordered a 2020 in February. The day finally arrived when the truck was delivered to Key West. We drove down from Vernon to finalize the purchase not knowing the factory had made the truck with an 8ft box! What a dissappointment! Peter and Sales Manager Michael Nokes did everything they could to find us another truck. A truck was found and was sold to us at the exact same price as our original quote. We traded in our 2014 and were given a very good trade-in value on it. Peter and Michael were an amazing team and we are very grateful everything worked out. We picked up the new vehicle and headed back to Vernon. The truck performed amazingly and we are over the top with the service we received from Peter Olson and Michael Nokes.
Great Dealership to Work With
We just drove to Key West Ford from out of town to buy a 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid. We got an amazing deal and great service. A huge shout out to our saleman, Lino! Also a big thank you to the sales manager, Ivan, who agreed to the price that we wanted without any hidden fees or pressure. Thank you very much for a such great experience!

We're just two months into 2018 and the all-new next-gen Nissan Leaf keeps raking in the hardware!
Last week at the Chicago Auto Show, it was announced that the best-selling EV in the world is now a winner of Kelley Blue Book's Five-Year Cost to Own Award in the electric vehicle category. For cost-conscious, enviro-aware Seattle area drivers, this is excellent news!
According to KBB, the Five-Year Cost to Own Awards honors new vehicles and brands with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on data for new cars for the initial five-years of ownership. It takes into consideration depreciation, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for all new models within that time period.
Redesigned for 2018, the Leaf now offers a 40% greater range than the original, as well as a more appealing exterior styling. It also incorporates Nissan's Intelligent Mobility suite, featuring technologies such as ProPILOT Assist, e-Pedal, Automatic Emergency Braking and more.
"Nissan Intelligent Mobility is about applying the latest technology to set a new benchmark for exciting and safe driving and the all-new Nissan Leaf delivers on that in every way," said Brian Maragno, Head of Nissan's EV Marketing and Sales Team. "In addition to the exhilarating drive, EVs are inherently less expensive to operate than gas-powered cars and the 2018 Nissan Leaf provides more range, content and technology at a lower MSRP than the previous generation, offering customers more value at a lower price."

The folks over at Nissan have been up to a little fun. This week, they unveiled how their semi-autonomous ProPilot Assist technology isn't just for cars.
Set in a traditional Japanese inn known as a ryokan, the automaker previewed self-parking slippers, tables and floor cushions much to the surprise of the hotel's visitors. As you can see in the video below, when these items are not in use, they automatically return to their designated spots with the push of the button. This is similar to how Nissan's ProPilot Assist is capable of using the steering, brakes, and throttle to maneuver a vehicle into a space without the brain power or physical input of a driver.
This isn't the first time that Nissan has applied their technology to inanimate objects. Just last year, they innovated an autonomous chair to help alleviate the strain of waiting in line. When the person at the front of the line stands up to be served, the now-vacant chair moves to the back of the line, so another person can sit down and wait in the queue. Imagine having these chairs at the DMV? Talk about a game-changer!
From automated slippers and pillows to self-parking vehicles, ProPilot Assist strives to take the tedium out of daily life. To experience this technology for yourself, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to schedule a test drive in a 2018 Rogue or Leaf all-electric vehicle.

With a solid history in the automotive industry, Nissan is shining an entirely new light on their expertise and innovative technologies. The company recently launched a solar generation and energy storage system for domestic use called Nissan Energy Solar.
Available in the United Kingdom, this all-in-one solution allows homeowners to live more sustainably by harnessing energy from the sun. The technology claims that it can cut energy bills by up to 66%.
Traditionally, solar energy has been used to power home appliances during the day, but Nissan’s innovation can collect and store excess energy and use it in the night. It can even be used to charge an all-electric car, like the Leaf, on a cloudy day.
Francisco Carranza, Managing Director at Nissan Energy, said the system addresses a substantial and cultivating market. "Solar panels have become the world's fastest-growing source of new energy and we're thrilled to launch Nissan Energy Solar in the UK," he said in a statement. "Over 880,000 UK homes already have solar panels installed and they are seeing the benefits every day, from decreasing electricity bills to increasing property values.”
The new technology also includes a home energy management system that will allow users to control how and when they use their energy – and in real time. The result is an entire energy system that’s efficient and sustainable.
Nissan Energy Solar starts at £3,881 (roughly $5,300 USD). There are no official plans to launch this in North America, but solar energy advocates are hopeful.

The world’s premier automotive partnership, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, announced this week the launch of Alliance Ventures. It stands as a new fund determined to invest as much as $1 billion into industry innovation over the course of the next five years.
The venture capital fund’s first year is expected to bring the investment of approximately $200 million in various promising start-ups that focus on the advancement of worldwide mobility, artificial intelligence (AI), and autonomous systems. By the “midterm” period of the company’s plan—2022—Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi expects to have the largest corporate endowment of its type.
Alliance Ventures will first invest in US-based Ionic Materials. That company is currently dedicated to the development of solid-state, cobalt-free battery materials that could find future use in such Nissan EVs as the zero-emissions LEAF. The 2018 version of that vehicle is set to deliver an all-electric output of 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque with a driving range of 150 miles on a single charge.
Yesterday at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nissan and NASA Ames Research Center announced the extension and expansion of their collaborative effort to advance autonomous driving services worldwide. The refreshed initiative will pull upon previous work to lead the companies into 2019.
The five-year R&D partnership has seen the two corporations team up to enhance shared technology. It birthed Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM), a platform for vehicle fleet management that was introduced at CES 2017 and has its origins in NASA research. With this latest phase official and announced, SAM is set to help organize self-driving transportation services ahead of public implementation testing.
On a broader scale, the extended collaboration will evolve the car industry and Nissan Intelligent Mobility, including its “Drive” and “Power” technologies. These include the automaker’s ProPILOT autonomous system and all-electric vehicles such as the upcoming 2018 LEAF. The former includes automatic lane centering as well as the ePedal, which enables operators to accelerate, stop, and go using only one input. The latter is the company’s zero-emissions EV boasting a new 150-mile range.
Nissan is staying busy this month. This week they’re showcasing at CES 2018, but they’re also taking a time out to reveal the future of mobility at the North American International Auto Show, set to run from January 13-28 in Detroit. You can view each of the currently released teasers below.
Part of Nissan’s “future of mobility” plan is connected to the recently announced Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V). It will be integrated into upcoming automobile systems as a device that reads your mind waves (really!) and operates the car on your behalf. This includes stopping, accelerating, braking, and more. The boon is that it can do all these functions roughly 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than a driver can manually.
Current mobility implementations will only continue to get better in the future. This includes the ProPILOT suite of technologies, including Advanced Driving Assistance. This has been integrated into cars such as the 2018 LEAF to measure the speed of surrounding vehicles and automatically adjust your distance to them. It also keeps you centered within a lane. Further, the e-Pedal system enables operators to speed up, slow down, and even stop completely using only the accelerator.
The future of mobility is almost upon us! Nissan is ready to wow the world this week with their appearance at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is scheduled to start today in Las Vegas. Occupying the stand at booth 5431, the manufacturer promises to highlight the following exciting advancements:
Brain-to-Vehicle Technology. B2V is set to be integrated into future automobile systems. It assists with driving by learning from the operator, literally reading mind waves and taking actions on your behalf, such as accelerating or braking. It can perform these functions 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster on average than you’d be able to do it yourself!
The 2018 Nissan LEAF. This all-new, zero-emissions vehicle will lean on ProPILOT technologies to offer semi-autonomous driving. Additionally, the EV will feature an increased range of 150 miles on one charge, as well as improved power plant output of 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque.
The Nissan IMx. This concept vehicle is poised to change the way you drive. It’s fully autonomous, enabling owners to select the “PD Mode” and kick back and relax. From there, the car hides the steering wheel, reclines the seats, and the computer takes over all functions. More details are unknown at this time, but that may change at the conference!
Get ready for a revolution in the way we interact with our automobiles, Ahead of their planned demonstration at the CES 2018 show in Las Vegas, Nissan has announced the latest breakthrough in their Intelligent Mobility initiative—Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V).
If it sees mass adoption in the future, B2V will change the way Seattle commutes. The system actually reads the owner’s mind, detecting when the driver is thinking of performing a movement (accelerating, braking, or turning the steering wheel) and automatically does that function for them. Also, when put into autonomous mode, the new advancement will also adjust the in-cabin environment by predicting discomfort and using augmented reality to deliver relaxation.
B2V is a world-first system. It works by having the driver wear a brain-wave measuring device. These detections are then analyzed and processed by autonomous technology within the car. This enables it to take actions on your behalf that are 0.2 to 0.5 seconds quicker than you’d be able to manage on your own.

It’s not a dream or a sci-fi plot, but rather the future of automotive technology. This week, Nissan is set to showcase its Brain-to-Vehicle (or B2V) technology at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, where the automaker will demonstrate new research that will one day allow vehicles to interpret signals from a driver’s brain.
B2V is also the latest development in Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the company’s vision for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. The research is cutting-edge and wildly innovative by taking a deeper look into brain decoding technology as a way to predict a driver’s actions, like turning the steering wheel or pressing on the accelerator. It can also detect discomfort and change the driving configuration or style when in autonomous mode.
But, B2V doesn’t end there. Nissan also claims that the technology is capable of augmenting reality by adjusting a vehicle’s internal environment so that it’s more peaceful and relaxing. For Seattle area commuters, imagine being able to change your daily view of gridlock and brake lights into something beautiful, like a grassy meadow or white sand beach with turquoise waters. It seems unbelievable or something only possible on the big screen. But, with Nissan pioneering B2V, the future of driving is now.
