First Time Purchase
As first time new car purchasers, my fiancé and I were delighted with the experience of purchasing our new 2018 Ford Escape. Peter made us feel at ease, and let us see a variety of vehicles, even going as far as pulling them out of their parking spots to let us see each and every car in a bit more open area.
Peter was kind, light-hearted and didn’t make us feel pressured into making any decisions. He was up front about the previous ownership of the vehicle we decided on, and even printed off the reports for us to keep. When we had further questions, he brought Wes over to meet with us and discuss the vehicle further.
It was so nice, being first time buyers, to have a pressure-free and up front conversation about our new purchase.
We highly recommend Peter, and the entire Key West team, to help you find your new vehicle!

Great Experience, Great Deal!
We arrived just before the dealership was to open and Jag came out and welcomed us in and helped us immediately. He quickly located the vehicle we were looking at and brought it to us. Jag was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
We decided on the vehicle and we worked out a great deal.
I also wanted to send a thank-you to Ivan and Gurj!
Overall we are very happy with our vehicle, very happy with our deal and extremely satisfied with our overall experience. I would have no problem recommending Jag and Key West Ford!
Exactly the vehicle we were looking for
Robert was extremely knowledgeable and personable from the first phone call to his most recent follow up call. We had done our research and were looking for a specific Ford F150 that could pull our fifth wheel trailer. Robert listened carefully and suggested that we come in and see the one used vehicle that met our criteria. Never pushy but friendly and excellent at his job. Wanted to make the deal but willing to negotiate and make sure that we satisfied with the process. Highly recommend Robert to any of my friends and thanks for making the buying experience pleasurable.
We recently purchased a new Ford Escape and were impressed with the friendly and courteous service. Lino and Wes were very helpful and knowledgeable. They patiently and confidently answered our many questions and guided us through the process with ease. Thank you also to Jeff who promptly assisted us when we returned the next day with a couple of questions when Lino and Wes were not available. Overall, we appreciated the attentive service from all staff from our initial visit through the financing and insurance.
Interesting INFINITI Facts For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
Let’s switch gears for a moment this week in our “Facts” blog and rewind the clock a bit to examine the roots of the INFINITI company’s logo and get a peek into the world of racing that the luxury company has excelled in. This should be fun!
We’ll begin with logo design. Have you ever looked at the INFINITI logo and pondered its design significance? Well, even if you haven’t, the inspiration for its graphical representation is pretty interesting. The two lines on the badge were very intentional—they’re stylized to represent movement toward a distant horizon. This, in turn, is a reflection of the brand’s desire to rush to these horizons, inspire to be great, and reach out to “infinity.” Appropriately, the name “INFINITI” is absolutely a play on “infinity” and the idea of eternity, too.
Since today’s a “double dose” fact day, let’s take a moment to talk racing, as well. As it turns out, INFINITI’s M35h vehicle holds the speed record for fastest accelerating full hybrid in the world. That’s right! Its record-setting test happened at the UK’s Santa Pod Drag Strip, where British magazine correspondent, Tim Pollard, hit an average speed of 160 km / h across 400 meters. That’s sensational speed!
Do you know much about the early days of INFINITI? Chances are you don’t, but trust us when we say it’s all pretty interesting.
The one thing you may know is that INFINITI is an offshoot of Nissan. And indeed, back in 1985, “INFINITI” was just a twinkle in the eye of a group within Nissan. They formed in secret to attempt to create a new division that would only dial in on performance luxury vehicles—an entity that would challenge and push the existing players in that segment throughout the European and American markets.
As it turns out, it wasn’t until 1987 that the name “INFINITI” was chosen. Shortly thereafter, they created the now-famous logo. They chose what you see today—two central lines that extend out into the horizon in a boundless way. Once these details were set, the company was officially born and the REAL work began.
After two long years of toil, the hard work of those in the new company paid off and INFINITI first launched in the U.S. with 51 dealerships. Only two models were initially available—the Q45 sedan and the performance-enhanced M30 coupe. The latter came with a 162-HP engine while the former boasted an awesome eight-cylinder. The rest is history!
Call us to learn more about the early days of INFINITI, Tacoma!
You may be very familiar with INFINITI’s vehicles but it’s likely you haven’t heard the story behind the formulation of the company. Today, we want to give you a glimpse of how it all went down!
The year is 1985. An elite group of some of Nissan’s finest forms within the company, largely in secret. Their reason for existence? They endeavor to create a new division that is solely focused on performance luxury machines, one that would stand as a challenge to the entrenched players in the American and European markets.
Two years later, in 1987, the name “INFINITI” was chosen. A logo was created that displayed two central lines stretching off into the horizon in a boundless fashion. The company was officially born and its brain trust went to work immediately.
Come 1989, all the hard work paid off and INFINITI launched in the United States with 51 dealers. Two models were available immediately: the Q45 sedan and the performance-focused M30 coupe, with the former boasting an incredible V8 engine and the latter standing as a sport coupe with 162 HP. The rest, as they say, is history.

It’s common knowledge that INFINITI is a household name worldwide, but did you know they didn’t even cruise into Europe until 2008? Ever since then the brand has taken the continent by storm, selling 1,438 cars last August alone.
The move came following twenty-three years of unprecedented success in the United States. The company decided boldly to expand their enterprise to foreign lands. They opened thirty centers in major cities and seventeen countries (including the United Kingdom, Germany, and Spain).
Fortunately for us, the business still calls America home, and you don’t have to travel far to get your hands on a luxury vehicle. If you’re looking to for a great pre-owned opportunity, why not check out the 2015 Q40? This beautiful, sedan lives up to the brand’s reputation with its remarkable 3.7L V6 engine that reaches a thrilling 328 HP at 7000 revolutions per minute and 269 lb.-ft. of torque at 5200 RPM. It’s got an exhilarating top velocity of 155 miles per hour that’ll reignite your childhood dreams of becoming a race car driver.

Calling all history buffs: did you know that INFINITI isn’t just a national treasure? It's actually a well-established brand across the globe.
The vehicles became available here in the United States officially on November 8th, 1989. It wasn’t until 1996, however, that the company started to think globally, beginning with the Middle East and then Taiwan in 1997. Last year, the latter sold 2,440 cars (an increase of 21%), which was their all-time best!
In 2005, the business grew and expanded to South Korea. They then were very busy for the next little while: they opened up branches in Russia in 2006, Ukraine and China in 2007, and Western Europe in late 2008. In 2017, their hard work paid off when they achieved an eighth consecutive sales record, with 246,492 models purchased worldwide (an overall hike of 7%).
Nowadays, INFINITI has more than 230 stores in 15 countries. Want to see what all the buzz is about? Then check out the 2018 QX30. It has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that leaves the competition in the dust by cranking out 208 horsepower at 5,500 RPM, and it gets a class-leading fuel economy of 33 mpg on the highway.

It's normal for INFINITI to come to mind when we think about innovation, technology, and extravagance. For this reason, it can be hard to believe that they once had to build a name for themselves by blazing a trail to become the revolutionary vehicle we know and love today.
It all started approximately eighteen years ago when Nissan, the parent company, decided to take the brand in a new direction. How did they do this? By merging with Renault and working towards one goal: the production of a luxury car that was also sporty.
The outcome was the Q45 in 2002, but it was the 2003 G35 which increased sales and paved the way to its present success story. The popularity of the sedan made the label well-known and led to many breakthroughs; specifically, critical acclamation and awards for the design and performance of the 2006 M35.
This wasn’t the end of the road for the G35, though. It was redesigned in 2007 and reintroduced in 2008 as the now celebrated G37. The sleek convertible has everything you need. It combines a classic look with modern features that will give you an awe-inspiring experience.

You know that you love INFINITI vehicles, but do you spend much time reading about the company itself? It has a storied history, despite being a fairly new automaker, and some of the facts about the brand are actually quite fascinating.
For instance, did you know that INFINITI has been producing vehicles for the American market since 1989? Now headquartered in Hong Kong, the company started out based in Yokohama. Many vehicles from its lineup are sold overseas, especially in Japan. However, there, the cars and crossovers do not use the “Q” and “QX” designations as they do here. Instead, they are rebranded as Nissan vehicles and sold under different names, including the Skyline.
Initially, INFINITI was released with just two models, the Q45 and the M30. Only in 2012 did the automaker start using its now-famous “Q” and “QX” designation to start its vehicle names. As you might know, the former of these denotes a sedan and the latter, a crossover.
INFINITI is, and always has been, about luxury and performance. If you’re in the market for a new car, you might wish to check out some of its latest innovative vehicles. One of the most talked about recently is the 2019 QX50, which boasts the world’s first variable compression engine. To check it out, hurry in toINFINITI of Tacoma near Renton, Washington, today!

Depending on when you last purchased an INFINITI vehicle, you might not be aware of the new nomenclature the automaker uses to designate its cars and crossovers. In fact, the classification system has changed a bit over time.
Initially, most vehicles in the INFINITI lineup used a letter or two and two numbers. If it was a car, one letter was used, whereas SUVs had two. The numbers described displacement. For instance, a QX56 was a crossover that had a 5.6-liter engine.
Other designations could be used, as well. If there was an "x" after the number, it meant that the auto was an all-wheel drive model. An "s" meant that it was a sport edition, while "h" denoted a hybrid model. If a "d" was used, it meant that the vehicle ran on diesel. Finally, a "t" represented Touring models.
As of 2013, the nomenclature of INFINITI vehicles changed. Now, any autos that have a “Q” are cars, whereas any with a “QX” are crossovers. The numbers that follow these letters represent the location in the automaker’s lineup.
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you should check out the 2018 INFINITI Q50. This sedan is filled with plenty of amazing features that will keep you satisfied. Stop by our Edmonds, Washington, showroom today and take a test drive!

You love INFINITI vehicles, but did you know that they have a fascinating and storied history? The automaker, which grew out of the Nissan brand, was designed to be a luxury line for those with discerning taste. Now, they are known for their amazing features and performance-based specs.
In 1989, Nissan decided to launch a new upscale class of cars to the American market. Other manufacturers, like Honda with its Acura brand, had found some success in doing so. Little did anyone know, INFINITI would soon be the ultimate in luxury lines.
The first vehicles that hit dealerships in the U.S.A. were the Q45 and the M30. The former was based on the Nissan President model, popular at the time in Japan. It boasted a V8 engine and plenty of high-end amenities. The latter was a luxury sport coupe that could provide 162 horsepower.
Today, of course, the INFINITI lineup is filled with amazing choices that consistently delight drivers the world over. For instance, the 2018 QX30 is a comfortable and sporty crossover, with heated leather seats and speed-sensing steering. It’s sure to impress!

INFINITI may well be your favorite luxury car brand, but do you know much about its founding? Believe it or not, the automaker is actually fairly young when compared to other such companies, which makes its overwhelming success that much more impressive.
Originally, INFINITI grew out of the Nissan family of companies. The idea was to make a line of high-end vehicles that built on the latter’s reputation for quality but targeted an upscale market. Honda’s Acura line had attempted to do something similar. However, the new automaker would be more along the lines of Porsche, Lincoln, or Ferrari.
In 1989, INFINITI was officially launched in North America with the M30 and the Q45. Both built on existing Nissan technology but provided upgraded, high-performance engines and appealing aesthetics, like shorter wheelbases, to attract a different crowd.
Clearly, the idea behind INFINITI was a great one, as the brand has met with tremendous favor in its nearly 30 years in business. If you’re looking for a new luxury vehicle to upgrade the contents of your garage, why not turn to the 2018 Q50? With the latest in automotive technology and amazing amenities, like a premium BOSE sound system and blind-spot intervention, this marvelous sedan could be everything you’ve dreamed of.
