Refreshed! '09 Focus REVEAL May 17

thanks to MKII & Blueblood @ BON for spreading the word from FocalJet

FocusSport is having a "reveal" event for the 2009 Focus on 5-17-08!
FocusSport - Saturday, May 17th, beginning 11am
1350 North Hundley Anaheim, CA 92806 Tel:714.630.6353 Fax:714.630.1599

"On Saturday, May 17th FocusSport will be hosting a "reveal" event for the new 2009 Focus. Ford Motor Company will be showcasing the new 2009 Focus here at FocusSport from 11am to 2pm. Focus brand manager, Sam De La Garza and other Ford PR staff will be at the event to talk with attendees and answer questions.

The 2009 Focus has undergone some exterior changes and that is the reason for this event. And this isn't like before where there was a minor tweek to the fog lights, this is more significant from what I have heard. As far as I know, no images of the revised exterior have been released or leaked..."

-----------
can FmcNews have a rep there?
I'd volunteer but my wheels aren't turning at the mo

2b2, I will try to be there. I might perhaps even try to get in a few questions answered.
Man... I think that weekend will be real busy for me. Who else might be able to make it there?

****. I actually like the '08 Focus. It's so ugly it stands out from the rest of the small cars.

Re: Refreshed! '09 Focus REVEAL May 17

think Ford has a major prob getting enuf batteries due to the JapanInc/Thugota kairetsu(sp? monopoly)
but
eventually/C2 = for sure!

oh & edit/addit to earlier comments
saw a chop of the Focus with the refreshed euroFocus (Vervish/Mondeoish) front
but I doubt they'd go that far... but..........

Nah I doubt they'd have gone that far, with the new Focus comming in 2010 (I think?).

Re: Refreshed! '09 Focus REVEAL May 17

today's tidbit:

quote FocusSportVP @ FocalJet
"AFAIK, the changes are only for the Coupe at this time."

I'm actually starting to hope for the hatch... ...cuz then the 5-door could be a Merc!
