NEW FOR 2014:
Mercedes-Benz’ full-size commercial van has a new look inside and out for 2014, and also adds a new, four-cylinder diesel engine as an entry-level choice below the 3.0L turbodiesel V6 carried over from the previous generation.
That six-cylinder makes the same 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, while the new, 2.1L four-cylinder generates 161 hp and 265 lb-ft. Six-cylinder models get a five-speed automatic tranmission, and the new four-banger gets a seven-speed.
The Sprinter range starts as a 2500 model, and a heavier-duty 3500 is available.
Standard features include air conditioning, adjustable passenger seat, driver and passenger seat armrests, black fabric seats, electric heater booster, five-speaker stereo, tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist, hydraulic jack, keyless entry, outside temperature display, storage shelf above windshield, passenger-side sliding door, tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and a trailer prep package.
