2018 Metris Cargo Van Efficiency
Anyone that owns their own business knows that Mercedes-Benz Metris Cargo Vans provide the perfect way to advertise, and create a fleet of vehicles fully-stocked to get the job done. The vans are available in eight bold and vivid colors to match your business and are outfitted with roof rails and other storage options for anything you may need to haul to the job site. Coming standard on the 2018 Metris Cargo Van is a 208 horsepower 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that features direct injection technology to optimize each and every drop of gasoline used so you never waste any fuel. This engine comes with an EPA-estimated rating of up to 22 miles per gallon.
To even further your efficiency, this engine features an available Eco Start/Stop option. With this innovative technology, your engine will be able to turn itself off when you come to a complete stop. Perfect for those who frequently drive through the city where traffic lights appear every few hundred feet. Instead of idling and wasting gas like other vehicles, you'll rest easy knowing that you're not losing any of your precious fuel while you're waiting for the light to turn green. This also means that you're lowering your carbon footprint as well! When you're ready to go, the engine will automatically start back up when you take pressure off the brakes.

2018 Metris Cargo Van Technology
In addition to being one of the most efficient vans on the road, the 2018 Metris Cargo Van is also one of the most innovative in its class. Many of the standard and available technologies on the 2018 Metris Cargo Van have been created and designed to make your driving more convenient and to keep you safer as you go from place to place. The available Lane Keeping Assist system, for example, is capable of reading the markings on the road to determining your exact position within your lane. When the system detects that you're beginning to unintentionally veer out of your lane, it will send you warnings alerting you to get back into place. *
Also available on the 2018 Metris Cargo Van is the Blind Spot Assist feature. Sensors located along the side panels of the van are able to monitor the area around you as you're driving down a multi-lane highway. When the sensors detect that another vehicle is entering an area that you may not be able to see, it will automatically illuminate a warning light on the appropriate side-view mirror. The system will also send you an audible warning if it senses that you're trying to change lanes while there is another vehicle next to you. While this technology is truly helpful, we still recommend physically checking before changing lanes. **
