Interesting.  A 2-door van.  We don't get that option in The U.S.A.  But The POTUS is making America great again.

I heard he personally forbid Ford ever selling a 2-door van in the US.

I'm pretty sure he's got a door on the other side, at least judging from all the other pics of M-Sport Connects I've seen. But welcome, Packa, more pictures of the van's M-Sport bits, please!

Welcome to the group, Packa.

Congrats on the replacement van. Sorry about the mishap with the silver van and hope no one was hurt.

I have two older (2011 and 2012) TCs which I use for business and hauling only. I never once thought of either of them as enhancable with ground effects but that new one of your does look nice.

Parenthetically, the photos of the silver van after the wreck is a clear indication of the work of the crumple zones in modern vehicles. Van totaled but the windshield is still intact. No apparent encroachment of the driver/passenger compartment.

Anyway, welcome, thanks and see ya round.

Wow, that package makes it too low to the ground for my roads in PA, USA.

great look. So a sports car shortened version, eh? Noticeably shorter than my 2014 SWB model. Did you choose to have no back windows or was that part of the package? In the USA only the cargo versions have that choice, along a choice of sliding door windows or not. No 3 door versions, though.

any chance of a part number for that rear spoiler?

If Ford builds a plant to build them in The U.S.A., then anything is possible.  All that The POTUS has to do is provide tax breaks, lend government money (which never gets repaid), and a few other incentives such as a government purchase contract.....and it could happen.  Think back to the Chrysler K Cars.

I searched for that rear spoiler. None in the US. A couple in the U.K. And Ireland and Germany, "may not ship to USA" in the eBay ones ;(
