Professional service and a good purchasing experience
I had an excellent experience dealing with Robert Antoniak on my recent F150 purchase. After my initial test drive, I took some time to think about the purchase. Robert followed up with me but was not at all "pushy" which is something I value when dealing with a seller. I found him friendly and very easy to deal with. Robert really knows his products and had an answer for every question I had. I would recommend Robert and Key West Ford to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle.
I also had an excellent experience setting up my financing with Michelle Kellough. Michelle went through all of the options and set me up with a finance plan that worked perfectly for me. Michelle is also very friendly and professional and I was quite happy with the service.
Allan was extremely patient and professional with me , showing me the best match to my needs . I am really happy with my choice so I do recommend you ask for him.
Very Happy With My Purchase
Robert Antoniak was professional, courteous, and answered all of my questions honestly. After having researched a few suitable vehicles on AutoTrader, I found a great car at Key West. Robert was eager to have me test-drive the vehicle, and I walked out with new (lightly used) car that afternoon. Very pleased with my purchase. Thanks to Michelle too!
Easy, breezy and pleasant experience re purchase of a 201...
Nothing but praise for the car; the service and the dealership and its culture. I have never had so painless and enjoyable experience at purchasing a car. Typically, it has been a somewhat anxiety-laden, somewhat pressured experience. Utterly different at Key West. Best experience ever in a car dealership. This will sound odd, but they seemed like friends.
JDF and ALA - New West
Thanks for your help!
Had great deal with you ,thanks for your help. I’m highly recommend this dealership because for the great service. Hope deal with u agin !
A very friendly and welcoming dealership!
This dealership was very friendly and welcoming. All the associates were very helpful. We selected a vehicle and left a deposit and returned the next day and drive away as very happy car owners! Definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking into buying a new or used vehicle!
Found Allan and rest of ground very good to deal with. He wasn't pushing and prepared to what was needed to get the sale. thanks
First time working with Key West - really enjoyed it
I came to Key West Ford looking at a very specific vehicle, hoping to trade out of a sedan into a small SUV. Ian was the sales guy on deck, and was very friendly and helpful. He understood that although a deal was possible, it wasn't guaranteed as I had appointments to see other vehicles.
We test drove the vehicle I was there to see (2017 Nissan Rogue), and he was very patient with the bad traffic on a Friday afternoon. He wasn't pushy or in a rush to get out of the car. We talked trade in potential on my old car, and about a possibility of a deal. I reviewed what he offered, and said I'd keep him in mind as I finished my other test drives.
Once those were done the next day, I selected the Key West Rogue as my car of choice. Ian was kind enough to come in on his Saturday off to help secure the offer he'd made me the day before, prepare the paperwork, and walk me through the process. I was never left alone, and never felt lost in the shuffle.
He also went to work scrambling to find me replacement floor mats (which had gone missing from the car) and a gas card to make up for the partially emptied tank.
It's worth mentioning too, every other employee I dealt with - every single one - was friendly. Whether it was another sales person taking two seconds to tell me where Ian was, the ladies at the front desk giving me directions, or dealing with the finance (Michelle was also awesome!), I didn't meet a single person at Key West that gave me a bad feeling.
Ian was a pro - dealt well, listened well, showed patience in asking for and landing the deal, and made me feel valued as a customer before moving on to any other business. I had a great experience dealing with him, and would do so again.
This has been the easiest car purchase I've ever made. Thanks Ian!
Thanks Allan for helping me find my next family vehicle.
I came in to the dealership looking to move up from a five seater sedan into a 7 seater SUV. Allan greeted me shortly after arriving and I let him know what I was looking for. I'm glad I didn't have to search all over for someone to help me like I've run in to at a few other dealerships. He fought through the cold weather to show me vehicle after vehicle till we found one that worked. We didn't end up doing the deal that day since it was a little more than what I had budgeted. Allan being the great guy that he is, called me a couple days later to let me know of more options that would be available for me from a new shipment that was coming in. I was happy that he kept working to help me well after I had left that day. Not every sales guy would go above and beyond like that. That's why I think he deserves 5 stars. The dealership did a great job making their vehicles available and did a fantastic detailing job on the slighty used vehicle that i purchased. I would have given Key West Ford 5 stars but I only received a half tank of gas when I left. I figured after giving them tens of thousands of dollars in business a full tank would have left a nice impression on their customer. It would have been completely empty if it wasn't for Allan seeing it before I left and he was quick to get it up to at least half for me. Overall a pretty good experience.

Mystery shrouds the 2019 Ranger FX4. For months Ford has kept this platform hidden - testing it on deserted roads and refusing to share photos. Fans have pleaded for an informational reprieve but none has been given…. until now.
Off Road has just revealed the first look at the new Ranger, letting drivers slip behind the wheel and explore the cabin. Check out this exclusive series of spy shots!
The 2019 Ranger promises to be an everyday powerhouse - with Ford emphasizing consumer convenience with every mile. Not only will this pick-up boast a more agile frame (allowing for easier downtown maneuvering), it will also impress with its interior. A 4.2-inch touchscreen anchors the dash, flanked by an AM/FM stereo and CD player. Oversized buttons will ensure simple interfacing with the SYNC infotainment console, while soft-touch materials can be glimpsed on the door panels. This all pairs with a streamlined gray color scheme, emphasized by the high-end plastic dash and cloth headliner.
What does this mean for Ranger fans? We anticipate that the 2019 model will be intuitively designed - with Ford seeking to provide comfort, ease, and adaptability. This is not a luxury model. Instead it’s meant to offer value with every mile, revitalizing the compact market in North America.
Rejoice, Ranger fans! Ford has finally unveiled the prototype for its 2019 FX4 - bringing compact styling to the backroads once again.
In 2012 Ford retired its beloved Ranger, citing sluggish sales and a changing market. There was no longer a place for mid-size platforms. Instead, the Big Blue Oval argued, drivers preferred the massive proportions of the F-Series. Bigger was better, after all.
The years have yielded a far different public response, however, and now the Ranger is coming back! Ford Authority reports that the 2019 FX4 platform has been spotted - and drivers will soon have much to celebrate. Though the platform’s signature size remains intact, a series of fascia upgrades will propel it into the modern market. A large front skid plate delivers superior protection, deftly deflecting rocks and rubble; while dual tow hooks allow for seamless hauling. The rear has been streamlined, with the sport bar removed (this should help to improve responses and lessen overall chassis drag). Chrome-capped side-view mirrors complete the effect.
All of this pairs with an anticipated turbocharged V6 engine - which the critics at Ford Authority were able to glimpse during testing. This will allow the Ranger to directly compete with the GMC Canyon and the Chevrolet Colorado - making it a true sales presence next year.
Are you ready for the ultimate automotive revival?

Another day, another long-suffering sigh - with Ranger fans staring mournfully at their calendars, willing the year to end. Ford has promised to offer a new generation of pick-up performance in 2018, and drivers across North America are counting the days until the mid-size market is changed.
Key West Ford shares their impatience - especially as critics predict a powerhouse engine for the 2019 Ranger.
According to The Drive, Ford may fuse the Ranger with a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. This news was, at first, met with disdain among consumers - with all of them craving V8 performance or V6 speeds. Critics are quick to note, however, that this powertrain could prove mighty on the highway, with output ratios estimated to reach 310 HP and 320 lb.-ft of torque.
This would allow the Ranger to crush the competition (for example, the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado only yields 308 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque), utilizing turbocharged capability to rev down the road. The EcoBoost engine - which is currently available on the Mustang - would be an ideal option for work or play.
Ford has yet to confirm any Ranger specs - but The Drive team anticipates the inclusion of this four-cylinder beast (along with a 10-speed automatic transmission and Intelligent AWD) when the truck arrives next fall. We can't wait.
It’s been a seven-year struggle - with Ranger fans begging Ford to restore their beloved pick-up, trying to coax even the smallest of production schedules. Ever since this mid-size truck was taken from the highway, drivers have been doing all they can to get it back.
It seems their efforts will soon be rewarded.
Car and Driver reports that Ford is testing a new Ranger! The 2019 model has been spotted in Michigan, boasting a wide-fendered profile and an elevated suspension (the Raptor influence is both obvious and welcome). Though heavily camouflaged, the familiar short-bed was visible; and the recessed HID headlamps were given a place of prominence along the front fascia.
Despite sneaking a peek at the 2019 Raptor, though, Car and Driver was unable to determine the available powertrain. It was simply too quiet, purring down the Michigan streets and delivering none of the usual V8 rumble. This has led to intense speculation about Ford’s plans for the future, with critics debating the likelihood of: a 2.7L EcoBoost V6; a four-cylinder V6; or a 3.5L V6. All seem possible and would emphasize economy, a cornerstone of the mid-size market.
What do you think? Which engine will anchor the 2019 Raptor? Key West Ford has its fingers crossed for the EcoBoost (which, on F-Series models, has always been paired with twin turbochargers).

In 2011 a new philosophy swept through the Ford brand - a whirlwind of bigger, better, more. All platforms would be oversized; all specs would be enhanced; and the entire line-up would receive a wide-fendered upgrade.
Those upgrades proved too much for the Ranger. This compact pick-up had no place among the F-150s and custom Raptors, and it was shoved unceremoniously off the assembly line. It was too small to survive in this massive market.
The trends always change, however, and Ford recently revealed that the Ranger will soon find its way back to the roads.
According to Yahoo, Ford is revving up production for a 2019 Ranger. This truck - which will serve as a more economical alternative to the F-Series - will boast a lightweight body-on-frame design and a responsive 4x4 drivetrain. This will allow it to deliver light-duty performance, filling a void in the automotive world (compact platforms have almost disappeared, forcing drivers to rely on extended wheelbases for every task. This is both impractical and inefficient).
Consumers have been begging for a new Ranger since the brand was discontinued in 2011. With the release of this 2019 platform, all desires should be fulfilled - with Ford promising dynamic handling and superior speeds. This will be an ideal option for those in need of everyday practicality.
Less truly is more.

Envy isn’t an emotion the Key West team often experiences - but, as we stare across the pond and see the Ford Ranger crushing every corner, we can’t help but feel a twinge of regret. This compact powerhouse is currently dominating the European coast, delivering a Go Further philosophy with every mile.
We’re jealous. We admit it.
We think perhaps our customers will understand, however - especially after watching this latest Ranger promotion, which highlights the grueling tests the pick-up must go through before being deemed road-worthy. Exceptional performance demands exceptional endurance. Check it out!
The 2016 Ford Ranger promises incredible power, connecting international drivers to a 3.2L five-cylinder TDCi engine (which delivers 197 HP and 470 Nm). Through its rugged construction - which blends aluminum panels and an extended cab - it achieves best-in-class towing; and its direct-injection platform ensures premium throttle responses.
It’s the ultimate compact... and it’s currently overseas. Key West Ford wishes the Ranger would make its way to the Lower Mainland, and we’ve got our fingers crossed for the next-generation of pick-up power to rev into our lot.

Planning a summer escape? Key West Ford suggests abandoning your traditional mountain retreats and lakeside adventures. Consider instead sailing across the pond - because the Ranger Wildtrak is coming to Europe and you’ll want to see this mid-size powerhouse in person.
The Key West team is currently gathering our suitcases, preparing for a trip to foreign shores to find the Wildtrak. This new Ranger promises incredible performance, delivering:
These numbers showcase the adaptability of the Wildtrak, with Ford’s dynamic engineering allowing the truck to roll through any terrain. It’s an all-purpose, all-terrain beast - and we desperately wish it would come to the Lower Mainland.
In 2011 the Ranger was discontinued in North America, leaving drivers to weep at the loss of the mid-size market. The Wildtrak will certainly cause those tears to start again, offering class-leading performance and exceptional styling. We can only hope that Ford will one day bring it back to Canada.

In 2011 Ford shattered hearts across North America, declaring that the beloved Ranger would no longer anchor its pick-up line. The truck would instead be sent overseas, leaving drivers in Canada and the US to wallow in their chrome-covered misery.
Now salt's being added to the proverbial wound... because the 2015 Ranger has raced into Australia, delivering the power and performance North Americans crave.
The 2015 Ranger promises superior performance. Its three engines - which include a 3.2L five-cylinder diesel, a 2.2L four-cylinder diesel, and a 2.2L turbocharger - generate up to 197 HP and 347 lb.-ft of torque. Best-in-class towing accommodates more than 7,700 payload pounds, while a suite of tech upgrades promotes safer driving experiences. These upgrades include:
Adaptive Cruise Control.
Blind Spot Monitoring.
Bluetooth Emergency Assistance.
... and more.
This is the perfect pick-up for the mid-size market - and the Key West team wishes it would rev its way across the sea.

The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show has begun, bringing high speeds and high performance to Europe. The event - which has already drawn close to 1 million visitors - serves as the premier showcase for the world’s best cars, such as: the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Bentley Batayga, and the Porsche Mission E. Stunning curves and powerful engines shape every display.
The Ford Ranger Wildtrak seems an unlikely addition to this pack of roadsters - but this pick-up powerhouse has been earning major acclaim in Frankfurt.
With the debut of the Wildtrak, Ford is bringing compact power to the European market. This truck delivers a 2.2L TDCi diesel engine, generating up to 160 PS. Advanced technologies - including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and Electronic Stability Control - ensure precise steerage, while the SYNC 2 delivers intuitive interfacing. This is the ultimate compact option.
We just wish it would make its way from Germany to B.C. - don’t you?

In 2011 Ford devastated North America. The Ranger, it announced, would no longer be available in the United States or Canada. Production would stop, leaving just the F-Series to shape the pick-up market.
To add salt to the proverbial wound, international drivers wouldn’t even share this fate. The Ranger would instead be available throughout Australia, Asia, and other Pacific segments - and so it’s continued for four years, with truck fans lamenting the loss of their compact powerhouse.
A recent promotion from Ford Asia (highlighting the efficiency of the 2015 Ranger) does nothing to ease this loss. The pick-up looks like the perfect off-road option and we’re just masochistic enough to watch the footage.
The 2015 Ford Ranger delivers a 2.5L engine, boasting 175 HP and an enhanced MPG (25 City, 30 Highway). It’s a little pick-up with big potential, and Key West Ford wishes it could roll into our lot.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for Ford to change its mind and resume production here.
