Wait for it, wait for the punchline.
You’re too clever for me. That’s right; we don’t get the wagon or those engines in the North American market.
The new Focus wagon is the fifth iteration of Ford’s new C-Class platform. The tally so far is the new C-Max, the Grand C-Max, the Focus sedan, the Focus 5-door hatchback, and now, the wagon. The last piece of this puzzle (for now) is the upcoming Kuga, the attractive little crossover that has been shown just about everywhere in the last couple of years. Ford reportedly has another four cars derived from this platform in the product pipeline, scheduled to be brought out over the next few years.
As to the reason why the wagon won’t be sold in North America, it is no secret that almost all of the American public finds the idea of driving around in a wagon repellent to their very being, and that pretty much sums it up.
