Hi
In the following sentence, I don't understand "It's going to be different". why is "is going to" used with "it"?
because we use "be going to" when someone intend to do something.

"The couch may well cost more but It's going to be different."

I assume the subject is the couch. It (the couch) is going to be different. = It's going to be different.

You haven't bought the new couch yet.

It only exists in the future.
