Following up on the reveal of the Metris Sprinter Extreme Concept at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz used this year’s event to unveil a new one-off take on the Metris family, in this case one based on the Worker Cargo Van. Crafted with a bit of industrial-strength visual whimsy but offering loads of legitimate real-world practicality, the Mercedes-Benz Metris MasterSolutions Toolbox Van was built by RENNtech and matches over 2,500 pounds of payload capability with a 5,000-lb tow rating.

Still fitted with the standard 2.0-liter/208-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine backed by a 7-speed paddle-shiftable automatic, the MasterSolutions Toolbox Van boasts a selection of trick shelves, racks and removable cases that can be easily accessed through its walk-in rear doors or power-activated side access port. A clear plastic partition separates the driver/passenger compartment from the cargo area and the durable tile flooring insert can be easily removed for cleaning.

While this exercise was crafted just to showcase possibilities, the MasterSolutions Ship-Thru factory upfit program is available on all Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner trucks or vans. Commercial customers can spec out a vehicle to meet any specific application. At that point, the baseline version heads out from the M-B Vans plant in Ladson, South Carolina, to a MasterSolutions facility where the customization work is completed before final delivery takes place.
