´09 What's Changed
The ´09 Sprinters cargo vans are essentially the same as completely redesigned in 2007.
• AM/FM CD radio now has MP3 capability.
• Six CD changer.
• Electric power sliding door (late availability).
• Two-stage sliding door opening. Can open part way or all the way.
• Roof rails (Standard ´07 and ´08).
• Gas engine is no longer available.
• Premium sound package no longer available.
´08 Sprinters are still available at considerable savings. If you are interested, let us know, and we will try and locate one for you. No obligation of course.
FYI — According to our sources, Mercedes-Benz will definitely continue to build Sprinters for sale in the United States for many years.
Talk about an unexpected curve. The steering wheel tilts, telescopes, and is steeper (for improved ergonomics), with the optional "High Line" instrumentation at the driver's fingertips.
Outstanding control for ideal climate. There's comfort everywhere. TempmaticTM automatic climate control.
Instrumentation in perfect harmony. Choose either standard or optional "High Line," shown here. Both feature a two-part LCD with segmented display between analog tachometer and speedometer. The High Line offers multifunction steering wheel, separate fuel gauge pointer, and a pixel matrix display. All-new: the system can "memorize" a number of vehicle settings, including preferred speed, temperature and lights.
All-around safety. Safety is a priority, with standard front air bags,* adjustable head restraints, optional driver and front passenger supplemental side-seat air bags, and optional supplemental side-curtain air bags to further protect front outboard occupants. Optional air bags included with the Security Group Option.
*Always use seatbelts. Dodge Sprinter vans are equipped only with front seats and should not be used to carry children 12 and under.

Sprinter Power & Specifications
Whatever it is that you plan on doing with your new Sprinter, you'll have the power to do it with a sense of confidence in the power you have at your command.
And with 280 lb-ft of torque coming from the 3.0 liter V6 CDI turbo diesel, you'll have the brute strength to haul, tow or carry just about anything.
But don't think the improved power means your Sprinter will be guzzling fuel — the intelligently engineered power plant still delivers exceptional fuel economy.
If you need a vehicle to take you to another time zone or one that takes you around town, the Sprinter has the power to get you there.
• 154 horsepower @ 3400 rpm
• 280 lb-ft torque @ 1200-2400 rpm
rear axle Adding to versatility is the rear axle. The Sprinter full-floating axle design eliminates any axle exposure to bending forces, making it superbly durable. A notable business-friendly advantage: the ratio of the rear-axle differential can be selected and specified to ideally match the vehicle's intended application.
Adaptive ESP® – The premium safety and security standard. The left photo illustrates load-carry capability without the adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP).
Note the potential incline of the vehicle and cargo.
While adaptive ESP comprises a number of systems, photo at right shows two of the most advanced safety and security features of adaptive ESP: Load Adaptive Control (to help maintain stability) and Roll Over Mitigation (which applies specific brakes to help maintain vehicle control).
Adaptive ESP utilizes complex sensors, electronics, and algorithms to help maintain vehicle control.
Adaptive ESP® • state-of-the-art dynamic vehicle stabilizing system includes ABS • acceleration skid control • load adaptive control • electronic brake force distribution • brake assist • roll over mitigation • understeering control
No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. When the ESP warning lamp in the speedometer flashes, the driver needs to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behavior to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Always wear your seat belt.
