2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Overview
- New four-cylinder diesel engine with a seven-speed transmission
- Cargo, Passenger, and Crew Van versions
- Available in both three-quarter ton (2500) and one-ton (3500) ratings
Besides a full lineup of luxury cars and SUVs, Mercedes-Benz also produces several commercial vehicles including the 2014 Sprinter class of work and passenger vans.
The versatile Sprinter is offered in both three-quarter ton (2500) and one-ton (3500) ratings, with three different lengths and two different roof heights so it can be tailored to jobs of any size. There are also cargo and passenger models (only the 2500 is offered as a passenger model). Crew Van models combine the two, offering seating for five and a dedicated cargo area in the rear. The rear doors are able to open 270-degrees for easier loading/unloading from the rear, while a power sliding passenger door is optional for added convenience.
The Sprinter adds a new engine option for 2014, a 161-hp, turbocharged 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 261 pounds-feet of torque. The new engine also comes with a new transmission, a seven-speed automatic that is more efficient. Last year’s sole engine option returns, a 188-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V-6 that makes 325 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a five-speed automatic.
Inside, the Sprinter is offered with cloth or vinyl seats, and comes with air conditioning, power windows and locks, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a CD player as standard equipment. Passenger Van models can carry up to 12 passengers across four rows of seats. The rear cargo area has a flat floor and tapered rear wheel housings for added functionality.
Standard safety features include all-disc antilock brakes, electronic stability system, and front airbags. Side-curtain and side impact airbags are optional, as are rear parking sensors and a backup camera.
