The 2014 Sprinter Van has a new look and is now even more economical, safer and environmentally friendly. After seven years of the current generation and sales totaling around one million vehicles around the globe, the 2014 Sprinter is set to further bolster the successful model’s leading position as the benchmark commercial van.
The new standard engine is a 4-cylinder diesel engine with a 7- speed automatic transmission, with the familiar V6 diesel powertrain available as an option. New safety features raise the already exemplary standard of safety to an even higher level. And last but not least, drivers of the new Sprinter can look forward to a further enhanced cockpit with new infotainment features.
The 2014 Sprinter will go on sale in the U.S. in Fall 2013. Fully in keeping with the current Mercedes-Benz design line, the radiator grille appears more upright and self-assured, lending the new Sprinter a more confident presence. The three radiator louvers are swept back from top to bottom and are perforated. This increases the air flow and clearly establishes a close visual link to a consistent design language from the new vans and trucks from Mercedes-Benz.
In addition to the familiar V6 diesel engine, the 2014MY Sprinter now features a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel engine as standard equipment. It produces 161 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque at 1,400-2,400 rpm. The 4-cylinder Sprinter features a 7-speed automatic transmission with torque converter – the only 7-speed automatic transmission to feature in a van anywhere in the world is refined for maximum fuel economy.
