The main market for these cars is livery service and to a certain extent limousine conversions. Its a cash cow that Ford is milking and investing very little in as for its market, especially livery, there are very few competitors. I think they are down to just the longer wheel base version aimed at livery. Yeah $47K might be steep, but compare that to the long wheel base versions of a BMW or Mercedes, (and don't forget the insurance costs). The suspension is not set up for it to be a drivers car but a rear seat passengers car (taking into account there might be a lot of luggage in the back). I'm guessing that rear seat passengers are not asking to pair a bluetooth or plug in their iPods so the owners of the livery companies don't really care if they have those features or not.
