We don’t get many diesel cars in US, especially when we are talking about small cars. When it comes to vans, this happens more often. Mercedes-Benz Vans is one example. The Germans announced the introduction of a new 2.0 Liter 4-cylinder diesel engine for the Sprinter Cargo Van.
This advanced powertrain produces 161 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, offering customers another highly compelling option to satisfy countless business and industry needs as well as a wide range of transportation requirements.
The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel Cargo variant will join the versatile Sprinter lineup in the U.S. market that includes the 3.0-liter 6-cylinder turbo diesel Cargo, Crew, Passenger and Cab Chassis, and the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline Passenger, Crew and Cargo variants. The new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel Cargo Van will be arriving in dealerships late 2020.
The 4-cylinder diesel Cargo Van will be offered as a rear-wheel drive configuration with various wheelbase options, including the 144 inch wheelbase standard roof along with a 170″ wheelbase and 170″ extended wheelbase high roof offering. The 4-cylinder diesel variant offers additional advantages such as low fuel consumption, low emissions, high torque and high elasticity at low speeds. The addition of the 4-cylinder diesel Cargo Van rounds out the already comprehensive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter lineup.
Generous standard feature highlights for the 4-cylinder diesel Cargo Van include Mercedes PRO connect digital fleet solutions, representing a new connectivity and telematics solution for Mercedes-Benz, Keyless Start, brake hold functionality, charging capabilities with two USB-C sockets in the dashboard, a trailer hitch prep package, load- adaptive electronic stability program, all-season tires, an adjustable steering wheel with standard shift paddles and a metal load compartment floor. These features ensure each van is equipped with the class-leading technology, safety and reliability expected from Mercedes-Benz Vans.
