Same car. The Scorpio was the full equipment version of the Granada.
It certainly wasn't discontinued in 1985 - they were available new from
Ford dealers as little as a year ago. The 2.8i engine was the top end
of the early series - the mid-1980s onwards version had a 2.9i.
It had a nasty habit of wearing out the rear axle UJs every 40k miles.
