With more than 3.4 million vehicles delivered to customers in 130 countries, the Sprinter is a hit. It’s a genuine global player that already satisfies an incredible spectrum of country-specific and sector-specific requirements. And it has already been writing its success story for more than 20 years. The third generation of the Sprinter, the large van from Mercedes-Benz Vans, now offers a new, diverse range of product features that serves specific market segments even more effectively than before.
The Sprinter as an integrated system solution
The new Sprinter is the first integrated system solution offered by Mercedes-Benz Vans. This vehicle is fully networked. Its standard equipment includes connectivity hardware and the services of Mercedes PRO connect. The new connectivity solution, in combination with the new generation of telematics, significantly lightens the administrative burdens of fleet management. By means of the fleet management tool, the Web-based service connects the fleet manager with all of the vehicles and drivers in his fleet. This makes it possible to manage assignments online and call up vehicle status information such as location, fuel reserves, and maintenance intervals almost in real time. As a result, fleet managers can quickly and easily gain a complete overview of their fleets.
The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter satisfies all transportation requirements. More than 1,700 variants can be created by combining different basic parameters such as body type, drive configuration, cabin design, body length, tonnage, and load compartment height. Thanks to this versatility, the Sprinter is the perfect vehicle for a wide range of sectors and transportation needs.
Now also available with front-wheel drive
In addition to the tried and tested rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, the third generation of the large van from Mercedes-Benz Vans is also available with front-wheel drive. For design reasons, the payload of this version is 50 kilograms greater than that of the rear-wheel-drive version. Another new feature of this variant is a loading sill that is 80 millimeters lower, which makes loading and unloading easier and getting in and out of the van more comfortable. Two newly developed transmissions are available for the front-wheel drive version: a 9-speed automatic transmission with torque converter — which is an innovation in the large-van segment — and a newly developed 6-speed manual transmission.
