The van comes with premium seating pedestals, which means all seats are removable, and seats can be individually reversed or removed. Imagine the possibilities.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The limousine industry boasts a greater variety of chauffeured fleet vehicles than ever before, although the heydays of Town Car and Cadillac sedan stretches are long gone. 

However, the beauty of vehicle evolution in the chaffeured transportation industry is that vehicle models and types don't completely fade away; they endure in distinct niches as more popular newcomers enter fleets. So it is with the traditional stretch sedan, which has yielded its status to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Limo, often dubbed by operators as the "new stretch" of this teener ('13-'19) decade.

As with any product or service, customers want more, more more -- space, headroom, legroom, luxury amenities. This week's vehicle pick embodies that "new strech," a used 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van built by Midwest Automotive Designs and being sold by Westport Autohouse. It is available for a smidgeon under $100,000 at 186 miles on Limoforsale.com.
