Dearborn, Michigan – Ford has announced it will debut the all-new 2009 Ford Focus coupe on the television show American Idol tonight, the first time it has ever revealed a new product on prime-time television.

“Focus is the little car that delivers in a big way for customers, with 35 mpg fuel economy, cool features including SYNC, a fun drive, strong quality and the right price,” said John Felice, Ford Division group marketing manager. “We’ve built on those strengths to deliver an even sportier coupe version for 2009 and thought the ‘American Idol’ debut would be a new way for customers to see the upgrades for themselves.”

The coupe will be part of the American Idol “Ford Video”, featuring this season’s remaining contestants. Episodes of the show typically draw an audience of more than 20 million viewers. The 45-second music video will also be featured at www.americanidol.com under the Ford Music Video page.
