Did you know that TV's most resourceful action hero (from the late '80s to early '90s), MacGyver, has been seen driving a new Mercedes-Benz Citan minivan? It's true. Though it's been many years since Richard Dean Anderson, the actor who played MacGyver, has played out his action hero role, he's getting a chance to reprise it in a new advertising campaign from Mercedes-Benz. Three spots have already been created and will debut online September 18, 2012.
You may wonder why an action hero would be driving a minivan, but both MacGyver and the Mercedes-Benz Citan are crafty and resourceful! The new Mercedes-Benz Citan will show off all of its impressive properties when it makes its IAA International Commercial Vehicle Show debut soon. The van will be available in several different variants: a panel van (which looks a lot like the Ford Transit Connect), a Mixto (seating for five and tons of cargo room), and a rather large Crewbus style with at least three rows of seating.
The Citan is the first Mercedes-Benz vehicle to be produced from the luxury brand's partnership with Renault-Nissan. The Mercedes-Benz Citan is based on the very popular Renault Kangoo, which the Mercedes-Benz Citan will share an assembly line with in Maubeuge, France.
Be sure to check the brand's YouTube account on Sept. 18, 2012 to view the new ad spots, and stay tuned for more updates about new Mercedes-Benz vehicles from Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, conveniently located at 925 Auto Show Drive (In the Valley Auto Mall) Henderson, NV 89014.[INFO] http://rumors.automobilemag.com/mercedes-benz-taps-macgyver-yes-macgyver-to-sell-2013-citan-van-163019.html
