I'm kind of shocked!

This is quite unlike the Transit Connect, which is what I expected from your subject line. This actually seems to be more like a 7 passenger Grand C-Max, which is something available in Europe..... but it's a distinct body style, not the Grand C-Max.

I can't figure out why Ford would make this added investment to have something like the Grand C-Max, but with a unique body. Lots and lots and lots of money spent.... for what reason? Why not import the Grand C-Max or build it in the US? It makes me wonder if the Transit Connect Wagon will replace the Grand C-Max in Europe because overall....

.... this doesn't make any sense to me.
