Mercedes-Benz has nailed in every automotive segment, including sports cars, formula race cars, SUVs, crossovers, sedans, coupes, and everything that comes under the automobile tag. Who would believe that the German carmaker also manufactures cargo vans now? It has got its hand on cargo transportation with its Sprinter van lineup, but seems like it wasn't enough. Hence, Mercedes-Benz came up with the Metris cargo van lineup to show the rivals that cargo can be transported with style and comfort as well. The 2021 mode will be powered by a gasoline-fueled 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. Currently, the Mercedes-Benz Metris Cargo Van is offered in only two trims with prices starting from $31,390 and going up till $35,995. The 2021 model’s pricing is expected to remain almost the same as it will be a carryover model.
