Both the RAM Cargo and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter have similar Destination Charges.

With similar torque, the RAM Cargo and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The RAM Cargo has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
