2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Concept news, pictures, specifications, and information

The Mercedes-Benz Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Concept Showvan Debuts at 2017 Chicago Auto Show to Highlight Available Turn-Key Vocational Upfit Solutions

After the successful launch of the Mercedes-Benz Vans 'MasterSolutions' program in the summer of 2016, Mercedes-Benz is excited to debut a concept showvan that perfectly showcases the best of what the unique Ship-Thru upfitting program has to offer. Pull up to any jobsite wîth the 'Mercedes-Benz Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Van' and get the job done.

Open up the side of this Metris MasterSolutions concept van to reveal the ultimate toolbox on wheels. Equipped wîth a wide variety of Ranger Design® and Sortimo by Knapheide® shelves, racks and removable cases, the Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Van has enough storage, utility and capability to power through long hours on the job. A durable tile flooring system has been installed in the MasterSolutions Toolbox Van, which ensures grip for work boots and is easily removable for thorough cleaning. A clear, plastic partition from Ranger Design® keeps the driver safely divided from the cargo area while also allowing for easy monitoring of the van's payload. Únique wheels, finished in bright blue and silver, realistic toolbox latches and a handle on the roof compliment the special exterior wrap created for the Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Van.

Built by RENNtech, the Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Van, which is based on the Metris WORKER Cargo Van, has big shoes to fill after the debut of the 'Sprinter Extreme' concept van at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, but this tough, mid-size van is up for the task. Boasting over 2,500 lbs. of payload and 5,000 lbs. of towing capacity, all Mercedes-Benz Metris vans are built to work hard on the job while maintaining the ability to fit into the average garage and achieve exceptional fuel economy.

The Mercedes-Benz Metris Boasts Surprising Performance, Efficiency
The Mercedes-Benz Metris hauls a whole lot more than just cargo. The standard 2.0- liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, boasting 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, allowing the Metris to accelerate to 60 mph in about 9 seconds. Power is sent to the Metris' rear wheels for maximum towing capability and cargo hauling.

Mounted to the §teering wheel are shift paddles—standard fitment on all Metris Cargo and Passenger vans—which allow the driver to manually change gears, whether in anticipation of a steep hill or to maximize their driving experience on a twisty road.

Vital Stats
Engine : 2.0 L., 4-cylinder
Power: 208 hp
Torque: 258 ft-lbs

The Metris Cargo Van achieves 21 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway thanks in part to its Mercedes-Benz developed 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) With rapid and barely-perceivable gear changes, the Metris Cargo Van benefits from maximum fuel efficiency and comfort.
