Above & Beyond
This fellow is one of a kind. In all my life I’ve never had a good experience at a car dealership until I went to Key West Ford. What an amazing group of people. My focus titanium(2017) is the second purchase that I’ve made off Michael both experiences were something to write home about.
Whether you’re in the market for a Ford or any other kind of vehicle please do yourself a favour and check out the great people at Key West Ford.
Helped me find the car I want
This is my first car purchase. When I came to here, I didn't have a clear idea on what car I shall buy. Allan showed me around on several probable ways to buy my first car. The next day, he also found another car that suit my current need.
As I am new to Canada, there are a lot of differences on law, rules and regulations from the country I was in. Allan provided useful information on all of them and helped me get to a purchase solution that can fit into my short term and long term plan.
Now I have used the car for some time and everything seems good :)

Great pricing, very helpful. I'm from out of town and was on a tight schedule. Jag and the rest of the folks at key west were sensitive to my time constraints and had my truck ready for delivery with no hiccups.
We had a small car budget in mind and after talking it over and trying various model we settled for something newer than expected without breaking the bank.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to anyone looking for a used or new car to start at key West Ford.
Great experience buying my 1st Ford
I knew I wanted an Escape and had been shopping online for a few months. I found the vehicle I wanted and made an appointment for a test drive. It happened to be a Key West Ford. I made the appointment online and Jag reached out to me very quickly to set it up.
Jag was very friendly and talkative but certainly not pushy or how you've been trained to think of a used car salesperson. He answered my questions and was generally a nice guy to chat with.
I mentioned very early on what I was looking for but that I wasn't going to making a purchase that day. Even though he knew I wasn't buying he still wanted to make sure I knew everything I could about the vehicle I'd driven as well as anything else I might be looking into a vehicle for. I took his card when I left and made darn sure to get in touch with him once I'd made my decision.
I got a great deal from Jag and Key West Ford and would recommend you going to talk to him if you're on the fence about a new Ford.
Best experience ever
From the moment I arrived I felt there was something different. All of the staff are amazing, and the best part is the manager agreed to donate to my favourite Charity.

"My FIRST NEW car experience"
My brother, a retired Ford dealership owner did the negotiating for me and found Robert to be excellent to deal with. Key West went above and beyond what they had to do by delivering the car to my door. What a surprise when Robert and his wife Lily were sitting out side with 2 identical race red Ford Focuses. I felt quite confident that they owned one too. Robert took me over to the insurance office to get the paperwork down and then back to explain the car to me. I am on FB with both Robert and Lily now. I didn't feel like I was dealing with a "pushy" salesperson but a genuine man who cares about his customers. Although I am 72 years old and this is my first new but probably last car I would highly recommend Robert and the dealership to anyone who would ask me.

It’s an endless line of traffic - exhaust coating the highway, chrome growing hot in the sun. You’re surrounded by angry commuters, all trying to shove their way forward. They start, stop, and go again; and your foot tenses against a pedal, anxious to keep pace with this impatient rhythm.
According to Ford, the new Fusion Energi delivers adaptive cruise technology - proving perfect for rush-hour chaos. Sensors anchor the front, assessing both road conditions and traffic patterns. Alignment is carefully gauged with radar precision; and, when changes in lane trajectory or vehicle speeds are detected, the system will automatically engage the braking functions, slowing the entire chassis and maintaining a safe bumper-to-bumper distance.
Through this, drivers can achieve confidence with every mile - trusting this hybrid to accommodate each change in traffic. Adaptive cruise control delivers automated support, pairing forward collision warnings with lane-keeping assistance to ensure a seamless ride. This allows the 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine to maintain a smooth 188 HP in every stop-and-go situation.

According to Car and Driver, Ford is planning to reinvent its entire fleet - replacing signature sedans with all-terrain EVs. Soon brand standards (like the Focus and Fusion) will be taken off the assembly line; and in their place will come a wave of lithium-powered crossovers. Are you ready for the next generation of hybrid performance?
As Car and Driver explains, Ford wishes to redefine its North American line-up - shifting its attention from sedans to SUVs. This new focus will extend to its hybrid fleet, with a dynamic collection of platforms anticipated for 2020. Among the most exciting prospects are:
A Bronco Hybrid - this four-cylinder platform will serve as a direct competitor to the Jeep Wrangler.
An Explorer Hybrid - this EcoBoost option will focus on auto-stop performance and regenerative braking.
An Escape Hybrid - originally discontinued in 2012, this platform will make a welcome return to the Vancouver market.
An Expedition Hybrid - expect eight-passenger seating and an Atkinson-cycle engine.
Ford intends to bring eight new hybrids to North America, emphasizing crossover performance and lithium-ion capability. Official specs remain scarce; but critics note that production should begin by the end of this year, with most EV sedans phased out by next spring. This will clear the way for the Bronco, Explorer, and more.

One question looms above the hybrid market - can any car ever truly excel on the backroads? These platforms are tailored for the pump, and this demands a compromise of performance. Strength is traded for economy; power gives way to sustainability; and every mile emphasizes a slow and steady philosophy.
With the release of the 2018 F-250, Ford has decided to change this.
According to PickupTrucks.com, Ford recently partnered with XL Hybrids to create a new kind of platform. The 2018 F-250 has been fused with an electric chassis, ensuring exceptional performance on every terrain. Beneath the hood of this Super Duty model sits both a 6.2L V8 and a 1.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. When combined these technologies yield an impressive 385 HP and 430 lb.-ft of torque, utilizing an advanced inverter to maximum the power-band. A six-speed automatic transmission offers deft handling, boasting a low to medium gear range that lessens clutch-strain; while a 4x4 drivetrain promises off-road capability, seamlessly transferring traction between the wheels to improve grippage.
This is no ordinary hybrid. It’s instead an off-road powerhouse - with the XL team bolstering it with an electronic throttle that delivers up to 200 extra pounds of torque when engaged. This allows the platform to effortlessly accommodate changing terrains, optimizing the all-wheel-drive for robust performance. There is no trail this pick-up can’t conquer.

Too often does the hybrid market fail to impress - with weak engines and low power-bands leaving drivers underwhelmed. With the impending release of the 2020 Mustang, however, Ford is promising a new kind of efficiency. Compromise no more, Vancouver!
According to Motor Trend, the 2020 Mustang will both redefine and reinvigorate the hybrid vertical. While official specs remain scarce, Ford has allowed critics to glimpse beneath the hood of this electrified pony - and class-leading performance is assured. A 2.3L EcoBoost engine should anchor the powertrain. Bolstered by twin-turbochargers and a 10-speed automatic transmission, this option is anticipated to provide up to 400 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. This should yield a 0 to 60 run of approximately 5.3 seconds; and the inclusion of a Sport drive-mode will enable riders to quickly transfer traction between the wheels to ensure superior cornering.
This hybrid doesn’t ignore the need for economy, however. Instead Ford will pair segment-defining power with impressive pump results - with critics anticipating 21 MPGs in the city and 32 MPGs on the highway. This will be a significant boost when compared to the GT's 16 MPGs in the city and 25 MPGs on the highway; and it will most likely result from a transverse-mounted battery pack that will supplement the engine when idling.
The 2020 Mustang Hybrid will prove a dynamic force in B.C. - and we can’t wait to see this pony on our lot. To learn more about it contact us today!
April 6th will prove a sad day for Focus fans - with Ford ceasing production on its beloved RS. This track-trim will no longer anchor the North American performance line-up, with the Big Blue Oval wishing to channel its attentions to other platforms instead. A mournful feeling has already settled across the automotive world.
Fret not, Vancouver! There’s a chance that Ford may revive the RS… as a hybrid.
According to Motor Authority, Ford is contemplating a radical EV strategy. The Focus RS may become the next platform to receive a hybrid design (joining the Mustang and F-150), with a 48-volt battery pack reportedly in the works. This collection of lithium-ion cells will bolster the standard 2.3L turbocharged inline-four engine; and it should deliver a performance leap from 350 HP to 400 HP. A rise in torque is also anticipated, with the numbers rumored to soar as high as 394 lb.-ft (compared to the current 354).
Ford has yet to confirm this design shift - but Motor Authority believes it’s a distinct possibility. Given the outrage over the RS’ untimely demise (and the brand’s transition to high-output hybrids), a lithium-powered hot hatch would prove a likely addition to the new fleet. Further details remain scarce but expected specs include auto start-stop technology and the Smart Gauge system, which provides real-time assessments of every driver response to better optimize speed management, fuel usage, and more.

In 2012 Ford left the hybrid world shook - taking its battery-powered Escape off the market. This SUV (which had proven popular with critics and consumers alike) would no longer be offered. Instead the Big Blue Oval would focus on its smaller sedans and hatchbacks, launching the C-Max, Fusion, and Energi lines.
While these platforms were met with success, they couldn’t eclipse the power of the Escape - and drivers have since been clamoring for its return.
The wait, we believe, is over.
According to Green Car Reports, Ford is considering bringing back its Escape Hybrid. Recent rumblings suggest as 2021 launch date (which would coincide with both the Mustang and F-150 EVs), and critics are already tossing out potential specs. Among the most popular rumored features are:
An EcoBoost Engine: this will bolster fuel distribution, utilizing its natural-aspiration design to improve ratios by up to 30%.
Lithium-Ion Battery: Ford will most likely replace the Escape’s original nickel-metal hydride system with advanced cells, creating a more efficient powertrain.
Regenerative Brakes: these will prove useful for the Escape, allowing it to continually increase its battery levels on the trail (sparing drivers the sudden search for a charge port while adventuring).
We must note that all of these technologies are currently purely speculative - but we’re confident that they’ll eventually turn into realities. This will be the ultimate off-road hybrid.
In 1997 Toyota unleashed its Prius upon the world - delivering smooth electric performance and regenerative power. This sedan forever changed the market, proving the viability of EV platforms; and since then it’s reigned supreme on the charts, with no brand able to surpass it.
Soon, however, it will have to concede defeat - because Ford is launching a hybrid Mustang.
According to CNBC, Ford intends to steal the EV crown from Toyota. To do this, it’s bringing the beloved Mustang to the eco-conscious masses. By 2021, this pony will stomp its way across North America - delivering class-leading performance. No official specs have yet been released, but critics believe that drivers can expect the traditional 3.5L V6 and 10-speed automatic transmission. These features will simply be bolstered by EcoBoost efficiency (which can increase fuel distribution by 30%), auto start-stop capability (which eliminates engine idling to reduce overall resource consumption), and regenerative braking (which directly links the all-wheel discs to the battery, creating a steady surge of power).
Through these technologies, the Mustang will prove an undeniable force on the B.C. highways - and it will easily overtake the Prius. CNBC reports that Ford is fully confident that (by 2021) it will serve as the worldwide hybrid leader.
We think this is an achievable goal - don’t you?

Efficiency is no longer the sole value of the hybrid market. Instead Ford is emphasizing safety with every mile, delivering the 2019 Fusion to the Lower Mainland. This mid-size option will offer advanced prevention technologies to ensure peace of mind for drivers and passengers alike.
Check it out!
According to Consumer Reports, the 2019 Fusion Hybrid will promote security on the highway. Emergency braking technology will utilize pedestrian detection scanning and cross-traffic alerts to monitor the miles, automatically engaging the ABS when an obstacle is observed. Halogen high-beams will sense low-light conditions and turn themselves on, while blind-spot warning systems will release audio cues when passing cars veer too close. Lane-keeping assistance with further improve safety, utilizing sophisticated digital sensors to ensure that vehicle alignment remains steady. This will keep drivers from straying from their optimum positions.
Consumer Reports notes that the 2019 Fusion Hybrid will also offer optional adaptive cruise control - a feature that will regulate both speed and traction, automatically adjusting performance based upon real-time traffic patterns. This will help to negate the chance of a forward collision and improve every driver experience.

A new generation of efficiency will soon begin - with Ford unveiling its 2019 Fusion Energi. This plug-in platform promises class-leading value at the station pump, sparing drivers the frustration of middling performance and costly engine revs.
According to Green Car Reports, the 2019 Fusion Energi - which should arrive in B.C. later this summer - will impress at the pump. Anchored by a 9-kWh lithium-ion battery (an upgrade from the previous 7.6-kWh), this platform will deliver a 25-mile all-electric range. It will blend 84 optimized cells with a revised rear-style powertrain to ensure peerless performance, and its additional Atkinson-cycle motor will further enhance capability: utilizing inline-four precision to provide a strong burst of torque. No official specs have been confirmed but critics anticipate up to 185 lb.-ft.
To further delight drivers, the 2019 Fusion should also feature a best-in-class combined range - with its dual systems yielding up to 610 miles per full charge/tank. This will allow the sedan to push past its main competitor (the Toyota Prius) and it will eliminate constant visits to the fuel station.
Are you ready to be impressed?
No official release date has been given for the new Energi. We’ll be sure, however, to alert our drivers to its arrival later this year.
