Toronto, Ontario – Mercedes-Benz Canada has announced that it has added the Sprinter to the Mercedes-Benz group of brands, coinciding with its Canadian premiere at the Montreal International Auto Show.

The Sprinter, made by Mercedes-Benz, was previously sold in Canada under the Dodge brand. It is now on sale at Mercedes-Benz dealers from coast to coast.

With over one million units sold worldwide, the Sprinter is a leader in the light-duty van segment, setting the benchmark in technology, safety, fuel efficiency and performance.

A cargo van, passenger van and cab chassis are available in Canada. The three body lengths, two heights and three basic gross vehicle weight ratings add up to fifteen basic models of Sprinter vans.

Side windows and rear seats, optional with the crew van package or individually optioned, create a cargo van with all the advantages of a minibus when carrying a team of people plus large amounts of materials and equipment. This version offers seating for up to six people. The Sprinter passenger wagon can comfortably transport up to twelve passengers, and is equipped with an auxiliary heater and available rear air conditioning.

The Sprinter uses a 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel engine, equipped with Mercedes-Benz’s advanced clean diesel BlueTEC technology, and a five-speed automatic transmission. All models are equipped with a new-generation electronic stability program, called Adaptive ESP, that is fully integrated with the anti-lock braking system, acceleration skid control, electronic brake force distribution, hydraulic brake assist, and trailer stability assist.

Pricing for the Sprinter starts at $41,900 for the cab chassis, $42,900 for the cargo van, and $47,900 for the passenger van.
