2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Overview
Designed specifically for commercial applications as passenger, cargo or chassis-cab vans, the Sprinter is available in three lengths with a choice of two roof heights. In passenger-carrying form, the Sprinter can seat up to 12 people in four rows. The Sprinter competes in a class with the Chevrolet Express, Ford E-Series, Nissan NV and GMC Savana.
The back doors open to the vehicle's full height and swing open 270 degrees. One-touch, triple-flash turn signals and wide-angle mirrors are standard. A power sliding door is optional on both cargo and passenger models. Standard exterior features include power windows, locks and integrated wide-angle mirrors, 16-inch steel wheels (16-inch aluminum wheels optional), and a sliding passenger-side door. Fog lamps and headlight washers are available, as are side doors (in place of sliding door), heated windshield, and rain-sensing wipers.
Up to 12 occupants fit inside a passenger-carrying Sprinter. Two people sit up front and as many as three more rows of seats can be installed. The Crew Van is designed to carry five people as well as cargo. All models can have bucket seats in front. Sprinters have a flat cargo floor and tapered rear-wheel housings. Interior features include cloth or vinyl seats, air conditioning, tilt/telescoping steering wheel and a CD player (six-CD changer available).
Under the Hood
Sprinters come in 2500 (three-quarter-ton) and 3500 (one-ton) ratings, but only the 2500 series includes a passenger model. Sprinters have an independent front suspension, rear leaf springs and power rack-and-pinion steering. Under the hood is a 188-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V-6 with 325 pounds-feet of torque mated to a five-speed automatic transmission.
Side-impact and side curtain airbags are optional. All-disc antilock brakes, electronic stability system, and traction control are standard. For safer maneuvering in tight spaces, rear parking sensors and a backup camera are also available.
