Saw these today when I went to the Post Office to drop off a package. They look pretty cool with the Post Office Logo replacing the Mercedes Benz trademark in the grill.
Totally agree. Compare mirror setups on a typical USPS truck. I already dislike the mirrors, but if I had to use them to prevent my death every 27 seconds I'd want ugly bolt on mirrors and more than one.All I can say to the Postal Workers that have to deliver mail with these things. GOOD LUCK WITH THOSE MIRRORS! Pretty sure they will be getting dented up quickly.
GML, I got excited about the wheel covers, but I noticed they are not visible on the MBVANS configurator, so I got curious and found them buried (RD8) in the 2021 DOG, for good reason IMHO. They're butt . . , well, let's just say they show great humility. On the bright side, they do look to be capable brake dust retainers.Dunno if you care but the Metris as sold now is available with plastic hubcaps which I bet you could get from some third party source.
I, too, found Ford to be $4000 more for a comparable van.Personally, I like the idea that USPS did the math the same way I did, and decided that Ford produced a possibly superior but definitely substantially more expensive product. The M274 might as well be branded "ecoboost" AFAIAC. GM and FCA were never on my list due to size and irrational fear of poor quality control.
