The last week of September, Candace Roulo, senior content editor of CONTRACTOR, had the opportunity to drive the Metris cargo and passenger vans. The Mercedes-Benz Metris City Tour started in Ann Arbor, Mich., and went west to Stockbrige, Mich., then back to Ann Arbor, for a total of 100 miles round-trip.
The new mid-size commercial van already debuted at NTEA Work Truck Show on March 4, 2015. The Metris goes on sale in October 2015, offering both Passenger Van and Cargo Van versions without any competitors in the same size or cargo category. The Mercedes-Benz Metris Mid-Size Commercial Van is positioned as “right-sized” with corresponding maximum cargo capacity and payload on a small footprint and matching price positioning.
