It is titled a Dodge. So what? The customer special ordered the vehicle at a Mercedes Benz dealership. It is badged Mercedes Benz, with a Mercedes diesel engine, Mercedes Benz alloy wheels, Mercedes Benz grill, and every piece of glass has the Mercedes logo as OEM. The 2006 vehicle was produced during the marriage between Chrysler and Daimler. Is there anything "Dodge" about the vehicle? Besides the 2500 on the side? I drove it. It feels like a Mercedes Benz diesel passenger van to me, and it looks like one too. There is more Mercedes Benz to the vehicle than a sticker.

You live in Houston. See it for yourself.
