What the hell are these? I've seen like 20 of them in the past 2 days. They are so ugly, ugh! :tongue:

It's got a mercedes benz 2.7L 5-cyl (inline 5) with 154 hp and 243 ft/lbs of torque.

It's built in germany too.

Looks like a HUGE minivan. Very ugly.

You know, I have seen several of these on dealer's lots, and one on the street and I think, while ugly and slightly overpriced for what they come with as they may be, the cargo versions actually do what they were meant to do really well, and that is, be easier to park than most if not all cargo vans, come with one of the best warranties, and promise to last forever (if we look at the reputation behind Benz's diesels). Personally, if I had a need for a new cargo van, this would be it without question.

Those look nasty! It looks like someone took a minivan and decided to not change anything but have the top 2 feet above where it was. Blech. Mmm i'd rather have that sxt i drove earlier today :)

They sure are making the other domestic automakers tremble when it comes to van fleet sales. These buggers are going to sell like hotcakes to commercial folks. You can stand up in them and they hold a ton of stuff.

They are mostly badged as freightliners but are equipped with Mercedes Benx diesel engines, and yes, they will sell like hot cakes. Reliable, very utilitarian. I only know because when i was in utah when i worked for the olympics, these were the shuttles that the company i worked for provided. Real nice vehicles.

The story with these things are that UPS was buying them for city delivery's, and saving the Internatials for the larger routes. As for the one we have now, I can say these things with dominate the delievery van market, hands down. Cause nothing comes even close to the capasity, power and comfort, and yes I drove the one we have and a few times I almost fell asleep at stop lights cause the seats are that comfortable.

That's why I said "almost" non-existant. :D
