Mercedes Continues to Expand Its Van Lineup



Full-size diesel pickup trucks may be the vehicle of choice for many contractors in the building trades, but sleek, fuel-efficient Euro-style vans are coming on strong in just about every other commercial enterprise that transports goods and services. The new Mercedes-Benz Metris Worker is a prime example of one such offering.

The 2017 Metris Worker Cargo, which starts at $26,990 including destination, is the only midsize van now being offered in the U.S. It sports 186 cubic feet of cargo space (about 45 percent more than the Ford Transit Connect), and its 5,000-pound tow rating is considerably more than any other downsized work van, which includes the Chevrolet City Express, the Nissan NV200, the Ram ProMaster City and the Ford Transit Connect. The Metris Worker also fits inside a typical two-car garage, all of which bodes well for contractors who place a high value on vehicle security and accessibility to residential and commercial parking environments.
