FCA's Ram division owned 11% of the segment's November 2015 volume, a far cry from November 2014's 17%. Mercedes-Benz, with the smaller Metris now tagging along with its Sprinter big brother, similarly grabbed 11% of the segment. Scraps were picked up by two Nissans.

The Metris's arrival shakes up an already shaken small commercial van category. Larger than established small vans but not as big as the Sprinter, the Metris aims to squeeze through a gap it's creating for itself. 

The Sprinter proved that Mercedes-Benz, via its old DaimlerChrysler partnership with Dodge initially, could succeed outside of the Canadian luxury arena. Will the Metris do the same?
