Our 52nd year!
No Model Year specifications changes. 1 percent price increase.
Note: there are no plans to make a Sprinter 4x4 available in the United States.
Sportsmobile North, Sportsmobile Texas and Sportsmobile West are approved Sprinter Van Converters by Mercedes-Benz.
Everything is under control! The controls are car styled and positioned within easy reach. The large windows and outside mirrors provide all-around visibility. The cab is roomy and comfortable. The seats adjust in six directions. Luxury steering wheel (O).
Available as optional equipment: Audio 20 radio with dual tuner, CD player with MP3 capability, CD changer, Bluetooth® interface with hands-free function, and telephone keypad.
Numerous storage locations — including a practical compartment above the windshield, several cup holders, and two bottle holders — make for plenty of storage space and a tidy interior.
Luxury seats with numerous adjustment options and manual lumbar support are available as optional equipment.
There's no such thing as too much safety. At the forefront of Sprinter safety is the Electronic Stability Program ADAPTIVE ESP® which takes into account the vehicle load and adjusts accordingly. As the vehicle load can vary during the course of a trip, sensors determine the current load level, enabling ADAPTIVE ESP® to perform prescisely measured stabilizing procedures.
In order to increase handling safety when towing a trailer, ADAPTIVE ESP® functions for the Sprinter include ESP® Trailer Stabiity Assist. If the trailer starts to sway, the system counteracts these movements to help the driver stabilize the vehicle/trailer combination. ESP® Trailer Stability Assist is activated by your Mercedes-Benz dealer after retrofitting a trailer hitch to the vehicle.
Window air bags and thorax air bags for the driver and front passenger are available as optional equipment. Various air bags above shown at maximum deployment for illustrative purposes only.
Tire pressure monitoring system (standard for Cargo Van and Passenger Van, not available for Cab Chassis or with dual tires).

The Mercedes-Benz Diesel Engine
Mercedes-Benz has been developing and building efficient and powerful diesel engines for 100 years, not only improving cost of operation, but also enhancing resale value. And this is reflected in the Sprinter's highly sophisticated turbocharged V6-CDI diesel powerplant. Offering an impressive 188 hp, the engine boasts clean combustion, low emissions, and a high level of efficiency. In the Sprinter, it forms the basis for BlueTEC, the innovative Selective Catalytic Reduction
(SCR) diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz.
With peak torque of 325 lb-ft, there's plenty of power to go around, even for heavy-duty tasks like climbing hilly roads, passing on the highway and accelerating in the city. Thanks to state-of-the-art common-rail technology, the peak torque is available at low revs — precisely when it matters in a van. Plus the convenience — enhancing 5-speed
automatic transmission and standard Start-Off Assist mean that your daily trips on the road become something to look forward to.
As if the power delivery didn't make you feel good enough, you'll feel even better when you finally pull in to fill the tank and realize just how much fuel the Sprinter engine saves.
6-cylinder, V 72°
4 valves per cylinder

"At Mercedes-Benz, we believe that we have an obligation to ensure responsible and sustainable mobility for the future." That's where BlueEFFICIENCY comes in: with trailblazing efficiency technologies for optimizing fuel economy and emissions. The Mercedes-Bens Sprinter provides impressive proof of the positive impact BlueEFFICIENCY can have. Through the use of innovative BlueTEC SCR diesel technology, the Sprinter complies with the strict emissions limits of the EPA 10 standards, while still delivering a powerful, yet efficient drivetrain.
The innovative BlueTEC technology reduces emissions by filtering the exhaust gases and then sending them through a catalytic converter, where they are mixed with the water-based additive DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid), available under the AdBlue® brand name. In this process pollutant nitrogen oxides are converted into harmless nitrogen and water. The result is a substanial reduction in pollutants and soot particles — and one of the worlds's cleanest diesel engines. What you get is state-of-the-art engine technology, incredible fuel economy and very low emissions — all in combination with impressive power delivery and a remarkably low noise level.
AdBlue® Diesel Exhaust Fluid is available from all Sprinter dealers. The fluid level should be checked during your scheduled maintenance visit. The image on the left shows the DEF tank for the Cab Chassis. The image on the right shows the DEF filler neck in the van's engine compartment.

ADAPTIVE ESP® Electronic Stability Program is a dynamic handling control system which also takes into account the vehicle load. It intervenes in critical situations by applying a brake force to one or more wheels and adjusting the engine output in order to help stabilize the vehicle.
ADAPTIVE ESP® combines the functions of the anti-lock
braking systems (ABS), acceleration skid control (ASR), electronic brake-force distribution (ESD), Brake Assist (BAS), and Start-Off Assist as well as further aiding directional stability. Additionally, ESP® Trailer Stability Assist enhances handling safety when towing a trailer.
Important note: ADAPTIVE ESP® can only act within the laws of physics. It is therefore impossible for ADAPTIVE ESP® to prevent skidding resulting from hydroplaning, for example. If certain limits are exceeded even ADAPTIVE ESP® will not be able to prevent an accident.
Brake Assist can help to prevent a rear end crash or at least reduce the impact speed. Based on the speed with which the driver presses the brake pedal, it is able to detect a situation in which emergency braking is required. In such a situation, it increases the braking power automatically, aided by the anti-lock braking system (ABS), which prevents the wheels from locking up.
Start-Off Assist, an integral part of the ESP®, makes it easier to start off on uphill slopes: after the brake pedal is released, the brake pressure is maintained for approximately two seconds, allowing the driver to move their foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator without having to worry about the vehicle starting to roll. Start-Off Assist is activated on uphill slopes of approx. 4% or steeper.
ESP® Trailer Stability Assist system complements ADAPTIVE ESP® and enhances drivng safety when towing a trailer by selectively braking the wheels of the towing vehicle and reducing engine torque when the trailer fishtails. If the system intervenes several times in succession, the braking action becomes increasingly stronger, resulting in a significant reduction in the vehicle speed.
Electronic brake force distribution (EBD) proportions the braking force between the front and rear wheels of the van, in order to optimize braking efficiency in certain driving situations. In this way the system prevents "overbraking" of the rear wheels, which could cause the tail to start sliding. At the same time EBD puts less stress on the front brakes, which reduces the risk of fading due to overheating.
Front air bags for driver and front passenger increase the level of potential protection for the belted occupants.
Important note: air bags in no way diminish the need for occupants to fasten their seat belts correctly before every journey, since an air bag can only operate fully effectively if the occupant is wearing the seat belt correctly.
Window air bags and thorax air bags (optional) are deployed on the impact side in a severe side impact. The window air bags, housed in the side window area, are designed to offer increased head protection to the occupants. Housed in the seat backrests, the thorax air bags are designed to offer increased protection for the upper torso of the occupants in these seats.
PARKTRONIC (optional) audio-visual parking assist warns the driver if the system detects that the vehicle is close to an obstacle in front of or behind the vehicle. The warning is provided initially in the form of a visual display in the center of the dashboard (when moving forward) and in the exterior mirror (when reversing). If the gap continues to decrease, an audible warning is also activated.
Bi-Xenon headlamps with headlamp washing system (optional) deliver superior visibility over halogen headlamps because their brighter, whiter light is closer to natural sunlight. They also incorporate dynamic level control and a high-pressure washing system.
