http://www.mbvans.com/sprinter/home is updated with new Metris pages along with a new build configurator for both cargo and passenger models. Online brochures are also available.
Thanks BigRed. Any idea why the Canadian pricing, when converted from CAD to USD, is thousands of USD cheaper than the American configurator for the similarly optioned model?I think it should be available because I see the towing option for the Canadian build page, their build page looks cleaner and easier to navigate too.
Taxes. American import tariffs are included in published prices, and Canada doesn't have a chicken tax and so the vans don't have to do the Ladson two-step.
A friend in Ontario said...if I recall correctly...that sales tax on a new car is 13%.The Chicken tax does not apply to passenger vans. However, the US still has import tariffs on all imported cars- just not at the 25% level on top of the regular import tariff. Canada also has a General Sales Tax that is charged at a rate of, I believe, 8%, plus most (all?) provinces have a Provincial Sales Tax on top of that.
