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.
