The 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris is a brand-new midsize commercial van, recently making its debut in the USA at the 2015 National Truck Equipment Association’s (NTEA) Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. For many operators, the Metris could be the ideal size, since it’s smaller than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and larger than something like the Ford Transit Connect. It can handle a decent amount of cargo yet still get around tight city streets.
The Metris is just under 17 feet long, about 6 feet high and just over 6 feet wide. Buyers can order sliding side doors, along with a lift-gate rear door or side-hinged rear barn doors. It has a rear-wheel-drive layout and can tow up to 4,960 pounds. The amount it’s capable of carrying depends on how the van is upfitted by ReeferTek. ReeferTek USA is proud to be the first manufacturer to convert a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris to a refrigerated van.
In addition to the state-of-the-art seamless insulation lining and refrigeration unit, ReeferTek can install adjustable storage shelves, diamond plating, mobile office space and more. The Metris is an ideal home delivery/food delivery model for urban and suburban areas.
