The miles demand performance - with every road delivering a series of pinwheel twists and tight turns, an ever-frustrating collection of pot-holes. The terrains are often hazardous, and no narrow-bodied pick-up can survive them all.
This is why Ford recently fused its 2017 F-250 with an extended wheelbase - connecting drivers to the powerhouse responses they need.
According to The Detroit Press, the F-250 has been enlarged by six inches, creating a more efficient cargo box, bed, and cabin. While this number may (at first) appear unimpressive, critics are quick to remind consumers that space is often sacrificed in the pick-up market; and, by redefining its popular Super Duty, Ford has provided a superior highway experience.
These numbers should delight every pick-up fan, promising class-leading dimensions and ample comfort. The F-250 has been transformed into a super-sized powerhouse, and we anticipate a strong sales response in 2017.

It’s an all too familiar - and all too unfair - pattern. Ford sends its line-up across the pond, testing the limits of V8 power and sport-tuned responses on Europe’s winding roads. Platforms debut to international acclaim... and remain unavailable to North Americans. The frustration proves too great.
The Key West team is pleased to announce that this frustration will soon end. The 2017 Fiesta ST is coming to B.C. and beyond!
According to Torque News, Ford Europe has just premiered exclusive footage of its 2017 ST. This rally-runner - which boasts a turbocharged 1.5L EcoBoost engine - promises 200 HP and 214 lb.-ft of torque. Custom drive modes (which include Normal, Sport, and Track) ensure precise performance on any road, while an active valve exhaust generates pulse-pounding sound on every curve. This is the ultimate hatchback.
It's also the ultimate gift to B.C. drivers, with Torque News predicting an impending North American release. The noted auto site expects Ford will soon bring its 2017 ST to our shores - and, more importantly, this platform should be identical to its European cousin. No longer suffer through compromised power or middling engine revs. This will be a truly global hatchback.
We’ll spare you a moment to collect your jaw from the floor.

The road is ever-changing. With every mile drivers find themselves combatting dizzying steppes and endless flatlands. The terrains are always new and always challenging, testing the limits of every SUV; and some powertrains simply fail to deliver the necessary performance.
Ford deems this unacceptable - which is why it’s bolstered its 2017 Explorer with a series of engine options. Each can effortlessly accommodate North America’s shifting environments, ensuring smooth handling from the suburbs to the great unknown.
The Lowell Sun reports that the 2017 Explorer now features three distinct powertrains:
The 3.5L V6 - this entry-level engine yields 290 HP and 255 lb.-ft of torque. It’s well-suited for everyday activities and light-duty hauling.
The 3.5L EcoBoost: this V6 option generates 365 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque, delivering twin-turbocharged performance and rugged off-road responses.
The 2.3L EcoBoost: boasting 280 HP and 310 lb.-ft of torque, this four-cylinder engine blends turbocharged capability with available four-wheel-drive to ensure premium power.
With each mile, the 2017 Explorer can seamlessly shift from family platform to all-terrain beast - and drivers will no longer endure the frustration of weak revs and slow handling. Go Further with ease.

There are hoofbeats in the distance. They come clattering down the road - shaking the pavement, spitting dust toward the sky. Ford’s Mustang is running wild... and it’s coming to North America.
According to Auto World News, the 2018 Mustang GT has been freed from the Ford corral. This pony-car - which boasts a 5.0L V8 engine and a sport-tuned suspension - will shatter records when it reaches dealerships in the fall, with critics anticipating an HP capability of 455! This represents a 20 HP increase from the previous model and leaves all competitors behind.
Why are Mustang fans so certain of this massive power boost? Recent promotional images have showcased the platform’s gauge cluster - which emphasized the gear position (4) and the MPH (55). These numbers, as Road and Track noted, were intentionally chosen as Easter Eggs and are meant to represent direct-injection power. The GT is getting an upgrade.
Should critics prove correct about the 2018 Mustang, drivers will soon experience best-in-class performance - including 455 HP and dual-port efficiency. This pony will stomp its way down every track.

Variety proves the spice of life - and the cornerstone of Ford. With the release of its 2018 F-150, the brand is embracing a bespoke philosophy, allowing drivers to redefine each mile and each engine revolution.
According to Total Landscape Care, the 2018 F-150 will deliver custom experiences. This F-Series powerhouse will boast three traditional engine options - accommodating all light-duty, mid-duty, and heavy-duty demands with ease.
A 3.3L V6: this is the standard powertrain for the F-150. Though no official specs have been released, critics anticipate that it will generate 282 HP and 253 lb.-ft of torque (comparable to the 2017 model).
A 2.7L EcoBoost: this option is intended to maximize efficiency, blending direct-injection technology with an advanced dual port design. Overall MPG ratios are expected to rise by 11% on the highway and 6% in the city.
A 5.0L V8: this naturally-aspirated engine should yield the highest distributions (an expected 385 HP and 387 lb.-ft of torque), as well as ensure smooth handling through the new 10-speed automatic transmission.
Experience tailored responses with help from the 2018 F-150. This pick-up promises multiple powertrains and dynamic capabilities - with every engine providing best-in-class strength or economy. Drivers can now choose the values that best reflect their everyday needs.

Secrecy has defined the new Ford Expedition - with every performance output shadowed and every capability hidden. This SUV will deliver next-generation power... but drivers have been unable to access that power, with every detail proving elusive. The search for information has been futile.
This is about to change.
A recent Fox News article offers drivers the specs they desperately crave - highlighting the 2018 Expedition’s all-terrain power. This platform, they claim, will boast a new 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine, allowing it to generate 400 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque. This represents a strong increase from the previous model, which only yielded 365 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque.
It also promises class-defining strength, with the 2018 Expedition blitzing past its nearest competitors (the Chevrolet Tahoe, 355 HP and 385 lb.-ft of torque; the GMC Yukon, 420 HP and 460 lb.-ft of torque). This SUV will impress on the road, connecting drivers to the peak performance they deserve.
It should also connect them to nimble responses. Ford has confirmed that the Expedition will boast a new svelte frame - with more than 300 pounds eliminated from its underpinnings. This will provide fluid handling, maximizing the model’s Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive.
Prepare for premium off-road responses.

Time is a resource of which there’s never enough - and this proves all too true in Vancouver, where the BUILDEX exposition is coming to an end.
At 4:30 p.m., the doors of the Convention Centre will close. All seminars will conclude; all spotlights will fade; and all exhibits will be carefully packed away, leaving not a trace of the BUILDEX Vancouver event. This leaves mere hours, therefore, for our customers to experience Western Canada’s largest trade show... and gain critical insights into the developing market.
Hurry downtown - now!
We’re proudly participating in this year’s BUILDEX Vancouver, connecting men and women to the best-in-class performance they need (our booth features both a F-350 and a Transit Connect F-350, vehicles that help to power B.C.’s economy).

There you’ll find our team... and more than 600 other exhibitors, all eager to share their insights.
Don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity. Join us as BUILDEX Vancouver ends.

Experience the future of Canada’s industrial market. Come to the Convention Centre.
There’s a rumble on the horizon - a deep, shuddering sound. Canada’s tradesmen stomp down the Vancouver sidewalks, making their way to the Convention Centre West. There they’ll seek access to the latest industry revelations, strengthening their skills and fostering new connections.
BUILDEX Vancouver begins tomorrow... and Key West Ford hopes that our customers are ready.
Each year BUILDEX Vancouver draws staggering crowds, with an estimated 14,000 guests surging through downtown. For those wishing to take advantage of the many seminars and showcases, therefore, precise planning is needed to avoid the frantic streets.
Early Arrivals: the event officially begins at 8:30 a.m., with the Convention Centre opening its doors to welcome workshop participants. We recommend that guests schedule early arrivals (at least :30 minutes in advance) to ensure easy entries.
Public Transit: while parking is available at the Centre, we suggest taking advantage of the extensive public transportation options available. Guests can utilize the sky-train or sea-bus, and then spare themselves the frustration of high traffic (particularly at the end of the day). Major transit lines run near the event and walking will prove convenient.
Identification: for those who’ve purchased all-day passes, we strongly urge you to bring a form of identification. These passes are non-transferable, and proof of ownership may be required at the door.
By carefully planning a trip to BUILDEX Vancouver, guests can ensure seamless educational experiences - avoiding the frustrations of slow traffic and tedious entries.

It’s an unlikely pairing - an automotive dealership and an industry conference. The two share few commonalities; they seem to offer no value to each; and, yet, Key West Ford will soon make its way to the Vancouver Convention Centre West, sharing our expertise with more than 14,000 tradesmen.
BUILDEX Vancouver serves as Western Canada’s largest trade show - delivering insights into the market’s expanding fields of Architecture, Renovation, Construction, and more. These fields create a strong economic foundation, and they funnel financial opportunities into the country.
They also require exceptional power. As the premier dealership in B.C., we recognize that our customers demand more than high speeds and sleek style. They also demand performance - with heavy-duty tasks needing extended payload ratios, reliable trailering, and all-terrain capabilities. This is why we’re attending BUILDEX Vancouver, connecting guests to the F-350 and Transit Connect 350.
These two platforms enable tradesmen to redefine their efforts. By offering class-leading technologies - including Ford Telematics, to reduce downtime through automated vehicle maintenance reports and smart mobility strategies; AdvanceTrac Control, to promote smooth handling and stable trailering; and available CNG/Propane engine alternatives, to counter costs through bi-fuel capabilities - they maximize every mile. This ensures that Canada’s workforce can face every challenge.
It also ensures that the market remains vibrant - with men and women able to expedite their projects and expand their businesses.
This is why we’ll be waiting for the doors to open on February 15th. Join us at Booth 331 to learn more!
