More detail on the vehicle from Ward's Auto: http://wardsauto.com/north-america/transit-connect-wagon-for...Ford already offers a Transit Connect Wagon alongside the current Transit Connect commercial van in the U.S., but that model is much more Spartan in character and not as optimized for personal-use buyers.In contrast, the new ’14 model that will bow next year in both short- and long-wheelbase form is decked out in full passenger-vehicle regalia.It boasts better seats, a panoramic glass roof, available big-screen Sync/MyFord Touch infotainment system and second- and third-row side-curtain airbags, plus a number of other upscale options.“Our buyers told us if we give them additional features, they would be happy to pay for them, Tim Stoehr, marketing manager-Ford Commercial Truck, says here at an unveiling of the new model to media.Three trim levels will be offered, XL, XLT and top-of-the-line Titanium. Pricing won’t be announced until closer to launch, but Ford officials promise the vehicle will be “thousands of dollars less” than a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna.More details at the link...The only explanation I can think of is that the Grand C-Max looks a lot like a C-Max (a tall car).... and the Transit Connect Wagon looks more like a mini-van.... and perhaps more acceptable to North American customers as a mini-van substitute. Dunno.... the article really doesn't get into it.Rob
