Mercedes-Benz Vans USA on Tuesday announced the debut of its “MasterSolutions,” which the company says makes the most common van upfit configurations orderable directly from the dealer.
Mathias Geisen, general manager of product management, MBUSA vans, says the MasterSolutions program makes ordering a van with a turn-key upfit solution easier.
“In combination with highly- skilled upfitter partners Auto Truck Group, Knapheide and Smartliner, getting the perfect Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner van for your specific needs has never been easier or more convenient,” he adds.
When a customer chooses a preferred model from the Sprinter or Metris lineup, a selection of MasterSolution upfits will be presented à la carte. At the end of the configuration process, the customer is presented with an “out the door” estimate for their entire van, including all upfits previously selected.
Once the van is ordered, it is shipped from the Mercedes-Benz Vans plant in Ladson, S.C., through one of the MasterSolutions upfitters where the upfit is installed prior to delivery to a dealership or fleet location.
