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.
Fantastic deal and service on purchasing used vehicle
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.

Fastest dealing ever!!!:)
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.
Nothing less than awesome!
Allan helped me out so much and went way out of his way to make sure that by the time I got to the dealership everything was ready to go after choosing my car, I couldn't be happier with the service and the product! Thank you so much for everything I'll be recommending you to everyone I know trying to get into a vehicle!
Allan helped us with getting the Ecosport and both my wife and I had a great experience with Allan he is easy to talk to and helpful.

Silence is a familiar foe - following everywhere you go, burdening the miles with awkward pauses and dull minutes. It turns your commute into a tedium, leaving you with no source of entertainment.
Ford thinks it’s time to change that - which is why it’s anchored the 2018 Escape Titanium with a dynamic suite of digital features.
According to the Chronicle Herald, the new Escape delivers premium infotainment to Vancouver. The central media console is flanked by four 12-volt powerpoints, allowing drivers to quickly connect to their favorite devices (no longer fear low battery levels). Ten speakers are strategically placed throughout the cabin, creating a robust base-line; while SiriusXM Radio provides access to thousands of custom channels. An eight-inch LCD touchscreen boasts pinch-to-zoom interfacing, enabling users to scan through the AppLink suite (which generates real-time weather forecasts, turn-by-turn navigation routes, and stock market prices); while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology are now integrated into the SYNC 3 console, ensuring effortless smartphone downloads.
The 2018 Escape allows drivers to define their entertainment options - with its voice-activated audio and content controls providing access to HD streams. Customize all app choices and software downloads, creating a digital experience that is perfectly tailored for your specific needs.
Dread the silence no longer.

Speed proves a rarity within the crossover market - with most five-passenger platforms emphasizing comfort instead. Their long bodies and high rooflines seem ill-suited for the track, and drivers are forced to endure clumsy bursts of power with each rev.
According to Car and Driver, the new Escape proves a robust option for Vancouver families. Anchored by both a 2.0L inline-four and a 1.5L inline-four, this SUV ranks among the fastest in its segment - earning two out of the top six positions.
Coming in second is the 2.0L inline-four. This engine yields 245 HP, utilizing both turbocharged technology and a fluid six-speed automatic transmission to ensure class-leading responses. Through this, it can achieve a 0 to 60 run of 7.1 seconds and a quarter-mile performance of 86 MPH.
This Escape engine rounds out the list of top SUVs. Its six-speed automatic transmission pairs perfectly with a potent FWD, delivering a 0 to 60 blitz of 9.2 seconds. It also reaches a quarter-mile ratio of 81 MPH.
Car and Driver notes that the new Escape Titanium proves a nimble force on the highway, sparing families sluggish accelerations and middling performance. This platform is primed for fun.

Could this be the future of utility? Recent photos have emerged of a currently unnamed Ford crossover - and a furious critical debate now looms. Will this platform prove to be the 2019 Escape or is it something new?
The Key West team will admit that we’re not sure.
As Motor One explains, Ford was spotted taking a new SUV across the Nevada desert. The dusty landscape did little to camouflage the low-arched five-door profile, however, and many critics are already deeming this the 2019 Escape. They cite the familiar tail-light configuration and the signature notch inserts above the rear windows. This, they argue, can be no other model.
Not everyone is convinced. The Motor One team itself remains unsure - noting that the car’s roofline is several inches lower than the 2018 Escape's and its front fenders have been streamlined. This prototype shares more in common with the Edge, they say, and lacks the big-wheeled styling of Ford’s crossover fleet.
What do you think?
Ford has released no confirmation about the car’s identity - leaving critics to debate whether it will propel the Escape or the Edge to chart domination later this year. Our team remains hesitant to pass judgment until the camouflage can be removed.

Recently, fast-fingered critics snagged images of an unnamed Escape variant - with Ford testing the wide-bodied frame around the streets of Detroit. While the proving grounds were familiar, the car was decidedly not. It bore no badging and featured no model markers, giving no hint of either trim or year. This has led to much speculation about the Big Blue Oval’s fleet plans.
Allow us to share our own ideas.
As Ford Authority notes, this new Escape is considerably larger than its predecessors - boasting an extended rear, lengthened C-Pillars, and a widened wheelbase (its current dimensions are unknown but many suspect an increase of up to four inches). This provides a more aggressive profile, with crossover influences keenly felt within the sharp fender flares and square fascia.
What does this mean for the Escape? We suspect that Ford is creating an all new trim line - one that will emphasize passenger volume and cargo space. While no spec sheets are available to support this, we (along with the Authority team) believe that this model will arrive in the 2019 or 2020 seasons, delivering a crossover-inspired option for the North American market. This should reinvigorate flagging SUV sales and provide drivers with improved performance.

The compromise proves old as time - with automotive engineers weighing the values of power and efficiency, choosing to trade one for the other. These elements can’t, it’s argued, exist within the same car. It’s simply impossible.
The 2017 Escape Titanium turns that impossibility into a much sweeter reality.
According to the Mount Desert Islander, Ford has crafted an SUV like no other - with its 2017 Escape Titanium demanding no driver sacrifices. This platform boasts a 2.0L twin-scroll four-cylinder engine, pairing turbocharged performance with a six-speed automatic transmission. This yields an impressive 245 HP; and, when coupled with the available AWD, it promises easy all-terrain adventures.
These adventures won’t require constant visits to the pump, however. The Mount Desert Islander notes that the Escape embraces economy, generating a class-leading 20 MPGs in the city and 27 MPGs on the highway. It achieves this through EcoBoost technology and direct-injection distribution, which maximizes all resources. No drop of fuel is wasted.
Through this, the 2017 Escape Titanium enables drivers to seek out every road - providing them with high-performance and undeniable value.

Virtuality defines us. Consumers are perpetually connected to their devices - seeking information and entertainment with the press of a button. Smartphones prove essential, and high-definition screens remain crucial to the most mundane of tasks... including driving.
With the release of the 2017 Escape, Ford embraces the digital movement. This SUV (despite its off-road origins and Duratec powertrain) has been engineered for tech-devotees. Within its newly revised SYNC 3 console drivers will discover:
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Software.
Full Google Access (including search functions, 3D mapping, and music streaming).
Siri Eyes Free Functionality.
SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
With every mile the 2017 Escape impresses - delivering a full suite of infotainment possibilities.

Through intuitive voice commands, the eight-inch LCD touchscreen can be navigated with ease; and integrated Bluetooth links provide seamless connectivity.
Through this, Ford allows adventurers to maintain their social feeds - with the 2017 Escape enabling them to upload, download, and more on even the wildest back-roads.

B.C. adventurers, prepare! A new kind of all-terrain performance could soon arrive.
According to The Australian, Ford has just launched a new sport utility vehicle - the 2017 Kuga. This Escape-variant promises peerless off-road power, fusing a rugged all-wheel-drivetrain with a six-speed automatic transmission. A suite of engine options (including a 147 HP 1.5L V6 and a 177 HP 2.5L V6) accommodates every environment; while the 3,968-pound trailering capacity delivers effortless ATV hauling. To further delight explorers, this platform also boasts 19-inch wheels to pummel the pavement.
The Kuga - which debuted in 2012 - has become a staple of Australia’s back-roads. What should excite B.C. drivers, however, is this SUV’s possible international expansion. Ford is currently realigning its fleet, and it may decide to bring foreign powertrains to the Lower Mainland. This would provide access to turbocharged performance and Intelligent AWD.
It will also connect consumers to the technology they crave. Ford has bolstered the Kuga with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. This - when paired with the eight-inch touchscreen and voice-activated interface - will ensure effortless downloads, uploads, and more. Blend suburban needs with all-wheel fun.
Curious about the Kuga? Visit our dealership today for further specs about this and other Ford SUVs.
Growth defines the sport utility market - with critics anticipating a surge of more than 21 million global sales by 2020. Bolstered by rising populations in the Asia-Pacific region and tumbling gas prices in North America, this vertical is defying all expectations. Consumers are craving all-terrain options.
To accommodate those cravings, Ford is launching a new Escape - one that delivers exceptional performance and undeniable comfort.
According to the Courier Times, the 2017 Escape delivers a bevy of upgrades. Ford has redefined the entire platform, creating an adaptable option for families, adventurers, and all travelers in between.
Engine: 2.5L i-VCT four-cylinder.
Torque: 170 lb.-ft.
Acceleration: 0 to 60 in just 7.3 seconds.
LED headlights and taillights.
Available SYNC Connect.
Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi.
Available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfacing.
Through these features, the 2017 Escape has been transformed into a powerhouse performer - providing drivers with the off-road capabilities they need and the convenience they deserve. We anticipate that this platform will soon dominate the charts.

Efficiency proves uncommon within the sport utility market - with wide-bodied giants siphoning fuel and spitting emissions. They leave long trails of exhaust in their wakes, and the air along the highway is permanently stained.
With the release of the 2017 Escape, Ford is breaking this carbon cycle.
The Lowell Sun reports that the new Escape will deliver class-leading efficiency. This platform now features standardized Auto Start-Stop technology - which helps to counter resource consumption and emissions alike by shutting down the engine during instances of idling. Through this, no excess fuel is needed to power the platform; and no carbon is leaked during lengthy traffic stops.
This, we’re certain, will help to combat exhaust levels on the highway. The 2017 Escape will more efficiently utilize gasoline, ensuring cleaner air and sustainable performance. It is the first vehicle within the Ford fleet to integrate an Auto Start-Stop system (rather than just offering it as an option) and this signals a new era of smart mobility.
To more quickly usher in this era, Ford has also fused the Escape with a 1.5L EcoBoost engine and a suite of technologies (including adaptive cruise control and enhance parking assistance) to optimize the driving experience. This is the SUV for the eco-conscious.

The season is dreary - a series of slick days and cold nights, with high winds greeting every hour. Winter leaves B.C. residents shivering in their homes, huddled under blankets and clutching cups of hot cocoa. They hide from the world.
As the Forbes team recently discovered, however, that isn’t always a possibility.
On January 9th, the noted magazine sent its writers to the icy spans of Estes Park. There - surrounded by white roads and thermometers that ominously proclaimed the temperature to be -31 degrees Celsius - they were told to test the capabilities of the 2017 Ford Escape. How would this vehicle fare against the winter wilderness?
The answer proved quite positive.
During their (unwanted and unwelcome) adventure, the Forbes team discovered the true power of the 2017 Escape - relying on its turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, which yields 179 HP and 177 lb.-ft of torque. The available all-wheel-drive allowed the SUV to seamlessly power through snow and sleet, while a 6-speed automatic transmission delivered precision.
To further impress these plucky journalists, the 2017 Escape also offered a bevy of award-winning safety features - including adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera with dynamic gridlines, and park assistance. This ensured greater protection on the road, countering changing terrains with ease.
Through strength and stability, the 2017 Escape conquered Estes Park - and it allowed the Forbes team to navigate the perils of winter.
We still think we’ll wait for spring.
