The Mercedes-Benz Metris leaves me wanting a cargo van. The Metris starts at $32,585 and makes for a great #VanLife platform. Sure, it doesn’t seem like a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine would be enough for adventure, but 258 lb-ft of torque available down low is nice and punchy.
A Metris would be an awesome weekend-warrior camping and mountain bike hauler rig. If you have the dough, don’t need a full-size van, and want to build something cool – the Metris cargo van should be on your list of potential starting points.
[Disclaimer: Mercedes-Benz tossed us the keys to the Metris and included a tank of fuel.]
