Mercedes-Benz Expands WORKER Line to Metris

Posted by: Mark Bilek

On the heels of the Sprinter WORKER reveal at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz has announced an expansion of the WORKER lineup to include the Metris. Available in both passenger and cargo configuration, the Metris WORKER Cargo will start at just $25,995, while the Metris WORKER Passenger van will start at $29,995. The Metris Cargo and Passenger Vans are able to fit into a typical garage all while offering nearly twice the cargo space and payload capacity as a traditional small van. The mid-size Metris packs a punch with a tow rating of 5,000 lbs., a payload capacity of over 2,500 lbs.

"Based on the excellent demand for our Sprinter WORKER model, we are excited to announce the expansion of our WORKER lineup to include the Metris WORKER Cargo and Passenger Vans," said Bernie Glaser, Head of the Mercedes-Benz USA Vans Division.


The Metris WORKER model lineup receives the same engine, transmission and capacities as the traditional Metris. A turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine mates to a 7-speed automatic transmission. With 186 cubic feet of cargo volume inside, the Metris WORKER Cargo can haul over 60 sheets of drywall or plywood.

In order to easily accommodate custom decals or paint, the Metris WORKER Cargo is offered exclusively in white. The Metris WORKER Passenger has been optimized for shuttle and limousine companies, with a simple package structure and extensive standard features. Available in standard White or optionally in Obsidian Black Metallic or Brilliant Silver Metallic, the Metris WORKER Passenger can seamlessly fit into any shuttle or limousine fleet.
