The Sprinter. Every version a true professional

Your Sprinter is a professional partner on whom you can
count.

Nobody knows more about your job than you do. That’s
why the Sprinter Panel Van and Freight Carrier lets you
take your pick. With two wheelbase versions, three body
lengths and three load compartment heights, you have
the freedom of selecting the right solution for virtually
any transport task. Several application-matched engines
can be combined with a wide range of special equipment
to fit any and every need. And as you would expect of
the Sprinter, its many practical talents don’t come at
the expense of an attractive appearance: dynamic lines,
satisfying proportions, low lifecycle and running costs.

whatever the version – 3.5 or 5 ton GVM.

For the Freight Carrier there is a choice of either a single
or a double cab, available with a choice of two wheelbases.

The Sprinter is a vehicle that you can count on in the
tough reality of everyday operations. Low running costs,
reliability and durability are synonymous with the
Sprinter.

Give yourself a comfortable lead

The conditions in which you operate your van aren’t
getting any easier. So it’s good that you can at least count
on the Sprinter to lighten the strain: expect high standards
of operating ease and convenience, lots of space and
plenty of clever solutions. On top of this, the Sprinter
also offers you a wide range of practical and innovative
equipment which you can mix and match to suit your
requirements. After all, you’re in the driving seat.

The Sprinter sets standards in driver comfort and control,
largely due to a new instrument panel that takes design,
materials quality and ergonomics to the next level.
Numerous convenience features also offer the driver
important benefits in terms of active safety.

Convincing on the road – and on the balance sheet too

Cost-efficiency is essential in running a successful
business – and it’s one of the factors that have helped to
make the Sprinter so popular. Our engineers have paid
particularly close attention to aspects of the vehicle which
affect your bottom line: reliability, long service life and
engines that combine fuel economy with ample power
reserves. In addition, if you often have to contend with
difficult operating conditions, our reinforced suspension
for rugged terrain is standard.

Reasons for the Sprinter’s excellent overall economy
include high quality standards, exemplary engineering,
good resale values and state-of-the-art engines. Fuel
consumption in the 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder CDI diesel
engines with manual transmission is economical.
