Default 2014 Mercedes Benz V-Class

In similar fashion to the C-Class, the V-Class get's officially revealed as well, again so far the interior only though.

Again, more at the link.

It must be said that for a commercial vehicle the interior is amazing.

I suppose it's supposed to be a "luxury" van, but even so, very impressive.

Well, the V-Class has so far always been the passenger version of the Viano commercial van, which is about ford Transit sized (the normal, short wheelbase non high roof model). Until now, they shared exterior and most of the interior, with the V-Class having a bit if wood and chrome where the commercial one had hard plastic "decoration". But the basic dashboard was always identical, and i suppose it will be the same in this case.

Among the commercial vehicle based vans the V-Class has always been one of the most luxurious (apart from the VW Multivan/Caravelle/EUrovan, which can go to insane price regions with options heavily ticked), but still, it is a commercial vehicle basically...

Damn that's nice.

P.S.
With that said, I wonder if AMG can manage to fit their 6.0 liter V12 Twin Turbo engine inside this thing.

Apparently it is derived technically from the C-Class mercedes (the upcoming one) So probably, a V123 would be a tight fit, but a V63 AMG roooooaaaaring V8 would still be nice

Hmm.......interesting.

By the way, what's the estimated size and dimensions of the upcoming V-class?

For comparison, this is the current Viano/V-class:



This should give us some idea as to the estimated size of the engine bay to see the maximum displacement/engine size that can fit inside the vehicle engine bay.....

really nice looking van. Mercedes might want to have more than one headlight design in the arsenal though.

Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2014 V-Class in Munich, Germany.

Designed to be the first van you'd actually want to own, the model replaces the Viano and adopts an upscale design that borrows cues from the C-, E- and S-Class. Starting up front, there's a prominent grille that is flanked by LED-infused headlights. Moving further back, we can see sculpted bodywork, an upward sweeping shoulder line and protruding wheel arches.

The upscale styling continues in the cabin as the model can be equipped with premium leather upholstery, wood trim, individual rear seats and rear center consoles. Other notable highlights include ambient lighting, metallic accents and a freestanding COMAND display.

Under the hood, the entry-level 200 CDI has a 2.1-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 136 HP (100 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. Moving up the 220 CDI rewards owners with 163 HP (120 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Last but not least, the 250 BlueTec produces 190 HP (140 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque.

Since the van was designed to appeal to a variety of customers, it is highly customizable and can be ordered with a short or long wheelbase (3,200 mm or 3,430 mm). The model will also be available in three different lengths ranging from 4,895mm to 5,370mm.
