As you can see, the Worker variant has a much lower price, making it ideal for businesses looking for a quick and affordable cargo van solution or businesses looking to grow their fleet rapidly. As we said before, these two vans are largely the same, they even look identical to one another, but it’s the available features that differentiate them.
The largest gap is in the available packages. The Worker variant only offers a Convenience Package and a Utility Package. The Metris Cargo Van offers many more options including favorites like the Driver Comfort Package, Premium Exterior Package, Premium Safety Package, Cargo Protection Package, Refrigeration Prep Package, and more!
Too some people and indeed some businesses, color is important. The Worker variant only comes in a gloss white called Arctic White. The Metris Cargo Van has four gloss colors and six metallic colors to choose from. The Metris Cargo Van also lets you choose between Tunja black upholstery or a black leatherette. The Worker variant only has Tunja black upholstery.
Depending on your business and your needs, how the rear door opens could be pretty important. The Worker variant only offers a 180-degree double rear door whereas the Metris Cargo Van gives you that and the option between a 270-degree opening double door or a rear liftgate.
Both vans are great options, but the bottom line is what’s the right option for you? That really depends on your needs. The Worker is a streamlined and cheaper version of the Metris Cargo Van that is not right for anybody.
