Overview

The Sprinter is powered by a 3.0L turbo-diesel BlueTec V6 engine that makes 188 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque--the latter figure explaining the Sprinter's surprisingly good acceleration, even with a full load. The BlueTec engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes-Benz says that the powertrain gets 30-percent better fuel economy than a comparable gasoline engine and complies with the most up-to-date emissions standards from the EPA and California Air Resources Board.
2016,
2016,The Sprinter's upright body, with nearly vertical side walls and a rather low loading floor, makes it incredibly spacious inside, leaving several feet above most occupants' heads and plenty of legroom no matter the row. There's a choice between standard and high-roof models, as well as a 144-inch or 170-inch wheelbase, and with the taller body, occupants up to 6'-4" can stand in the cabin. There are four rows of seating, with the capability to carry up to 12 passengers. Entry and exit are quite easy, thanks to a wide-opening sliding door that opens to an amazing 4'3" wide and six feet high. The standard rear doors open 270 degrees for easy cargo loading as well.
2016,
2016,The Sprinter has an instrument panel that's a little more carlike than other traditional full-size vans, but its seating position is quite upright. Overall, the Sprinter drives with a confident, planted cornering feel than might be expected from such a tall vehicle. That's thanks to an independent, coil-spring front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist and 16-inch wheels are standard.
2016,
2016,Adaptive ESP, a special stability control system that uses Load Adaptive Control to adjust to the load being carried, is standard on all Sprinter Passenger Van models. Side thorax front airbags and side-curtain bags are available.
2016,
