CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

Since 1995, Mercedes-Benz has been building a commercial van called the Sprinter. It's a big deal overseas, having won the '98 EVY. That's European Van of the Year, which may be something the Germans made up, because who here is going to check such a thing? In mid-2001, the built-in-Düsseldorf Sprinter finally made it to America, sold as a Freightliner. After much discussion, the Freightliner guys decided to call it a Sprinter. And now Dodge has a version, too. They've gone out on a limb and called their van the Sprinter.

It's available in three wheelbases-118.0 inches, 140.0 inches, and 158.0 inches-and two roof heights. Ours is the 10-passenger intermediate-wheelbase Tower of Pisa model. All are powered by a five-cylinder 2.7-liter Mercedes turbo-diesel that is a champ. It's quick to start, doesn't stink, and idles relatively smoothly and quietly. After a couple hundred miles, you forget it's a diesel. It produces 154 horsepower at 3800 rpm and 243 pound-feet of torque between 1600 rpm and 2400 rpm. That's not a lot, but it's sufficient to propel this 5381-pound Frigidaire to 60 mph in 13.1 seconds. That's 4.4 seconds behind, say, a Chevy Express AWD, but it's exactly the performance of a Porsche 911 Turbo if you stop along the way to pick up wholesale plumbing supplies.

Fact is, the Sprinter is destined to ferry not only plumbing supplies but also a mess of airport passengers, who are always nervous and stressed and willing to front cash to expedite their progress. To test the van in its milieu, I launched Johnny P's NU-WAY Airport Shuttle. (Our motto: "Make me an offer, and I just might drive you there.") This was working well, and I was especially popular among pregnant women and would have been even more popular if I'd figured out where the remote parking lot was located. Then a Romulus cop asked if I had an airport vendor's license or a commercial driver's license or a chauffeur's license or a wheelchair ramp. "Jeez oh Pete," I replied. "Whatever happened to free enterprise and the good ol' entrepreneurial spirit?" and he told me it didn't exist in Romulus and I had five minutes to find a new city in which to shuttle, which was approximately enough time for the Sprinter to reach its top speed of 90 mph, which it did.

One of the Sprinter's most endearing traits is a smart, silky-shifting five-speed automatic that can also be shifted in manumatic mode: tip left for downshifts, right for upshifts. You can probe 350 revs deeper with the manumatic, and it's quicker than the automatic at grabbing more earnest gears during uphill climbs. Given the diesel's 18.0:1 compression, manumatic downshifts also work swimmingly as brakes. In a commercial van, it's hard to imagine a better transmission.

Bystanders kept shouting, "Hey, that's a cool bread van." So I applied a Panera Bread logo on the door. (Our motto: "We cook whole wheat, no mold, WHILE WE DRIVE!") Rising bread was ensured, I figured, because the Sprinter's A/C is hard pressed to cool front passengers, never mind the cargo. (Wait until a plumber in Phoenix discovers this. Talk about a quick way to butt-weld your PVC elbow joints.) Panera must have been interested in my scheme, too, because I got a call from its copyright department. They wanted my address, my counselor's address, everything.

In our less-than-sensitive hands, the Sprinter returned an observed 30 mpg-pretty swell for a 10-passenger anything. It beats the tar out of an eight-passenger Chevy Express's 17 mpg and humiliates a 10-seat Dodge Ram 3500's 13 mpg. Not that a single U.S. motorist much cares.

As far as carrying livestock goes, I can suggest only this: Take a wet towel to wipe off the back of your neck.

The Sprinter's optional central locking is obdurate about imposing 24/7 lockage. Until you learn the top-secret disabling code, your Sprinter's doors will lock when the vehicle is turned on, when it is turned off, when you tune the radio, when a Ford drives by. And the remote transmitter, permanently attached to the Mercedes key, is about as effective an unlocking tool as a Sears garage-door opener I backed over one time in 1978. Even the 41-inch sliding door is as heavy and loath to open as a presidential candidate. And once it is fully open, no president inside can close it, because the interior latch is blocked, apparently on purpose. What has spooked the Germans? Did Rumsfeld get short with them again?

The ever-locked doors prevented us from successfully using the Sprinter as an ambulance. Well, that and having no IV drips, no syringes, and no medical training except for a dogeared how-to pamphlet from Viagra. It's apparently a bad thing when the patient you're transporting gets locked inside. Where's he gonna go?

 

AARON ROBINSON
I was wondering how a Whirlpool top loader would drive, and then the Sprinter showed up. Here's what's cool about the Sprinter: You can stand in it. I mean, while driving. The steering wheel is cranked up just for that purpose (why else would it face the ceiling?). You can stand on the roof and see into the next congressional district. You can stand in the back and play a sousaphone, or stand next to it and feel like a Turkish pasha. You can stand behind it and hear the diesel, but only barely. Don't stand in front of it; the Sprinter is quicker than it looks. The Ram van is a velvet-lined, shag-pile memory. Oh, Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes bus?

TONY SWAN
At a glance, this rig raises the pulse of all our club racers. Purged of its rear seats, imagine all the wheels, tires, shocks, tools, floor jacks, and other stuff this beauty could swallow. But another glance, at the specs, suggests it's probably not up to the towing that goes with a summer of pursuing a few cheap trophies. Even though the Sprinter is rated to tow up to 5000 pounds, with just 154 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque, the question is how quickly it could do that towing. On the other hand, it's surprisingly lively around town. This is not a van for civilians. But I predict the Sprinter will grab a healthy new share of the medium-duty utility market for Dodge.

ANDRÉ IDZIKOWSKI
Each year for the past eight, we have used a Dodge Ram van to haul people and assorted gear to our 10Best test site. It's just not 10Best time until the big-butted Ram van shows up. Then Dodge stopped producing the maxivan. We shouldn't have been concerned—the wacky-looking Sprinter is an able successor. The ride and handling turned out to be better than the Ram van's, and the Sprinter easily swallowed our equipment. Fully loaded with 10 C/D road warriors, it topped out at only 85 mph (unfortunately, it didn't go much faster with that crowd removed). The crew liked the recessed steps in the front bumper; they made cleaning the half-acre of windshield a cinch.

Despite a fine complement of Mercedes switchgear--same smooth signal and wiper stalks, same true cruise control, same readable gauges--the Sprinter's steering wheel is permanently fixed in a full Kramden. You know, the flat, municipal-bus position. It bugged every driver who tried it. It's hard to believe Mercedes doesn't possess about 75 different steering-wheel adjusters back home. It was unpleasant to be hunched over the wheel for more than an hour, more so because the steering is heavy at parking speeds. At least the seats are comfortable, freeway tracking is good, the view forward rivals that from Floor Two of a London bus, and if your back gets sore, you can simply park for a sec and stand up. That's because the Sprinter offers just over six feet of interior height, and the floor is flat. Cheerleaders could practice routines in there. Crack the twin cargo doors--they swing open 270 degrees--and you create a hole 61.4 inches wide. Depending on which wheelbase you select, a Sprinter can digest up to 473 cubic feet of stuff. Preferred stuff: a Ducati M996, a workbench, overhead lights, and two or three of those leftover cheerleaders.

I had to forget becoming a UPS delivery man, because the Sprinter isn't offered in Cleveland Brown brown. So I tried FedEx. Did you know that you need a key to open one of those FedEx drop boxes? I didn't. What are those guys trying to hide? I think they store stolen pets in there.

Handling? Well, sort of. Conjure, here, a Ford Ranch wagon with a canoe and a velour sectional sofa strapped to the roof. Actually, it's not awful for a vehicle taller than any NBA star in history. We logged 0.65 g on the skidpad, with the inside rear wheel amusingly spinning and yodeling. You really only notice the tippiness when you turn and accelerate hard in first gear--turning onto a highway, for instance. When the boost begins to boil, the high C of G whispers, "Hey, what're you, drunk?" and you quickly unwind some lock. The ride is gratifyingly supple, though. Pretty amazing for a live-axle painter's van capable of lugging 3293 pounds of semi-gloss enamel.

Know what? You don't want a Mini Cooper or Caterham 7 in the back of your Sprinter. There's some sort of fussy law about driving around with fuel inside a vehicle inside a vehicle. But you can sure tow a Caterham, as long as it and the trailer don't exceed 5000 pounds. Remember the early '60s, when the sight of bread vans towing little race cars around Europe was every adolescent boy's dream of unexcelled adventure, unalloyed romance? Well, romance if you had along a dour French girlfriend with black glasses and quite a bit of underarm hair.

But now I'm 50, so I settled for a La-Z-Boy, one of those Ed McMahon 200- packs of Bud, my favorite terrycloth bathrobe, and a 19-inch Panasonic. Then I parked the Sprinter for almost a week in a 24-hour Wal-Mart lot, using their bathroom whenever the barley barked back. Hint: Plaster your Sprinter with plenty of those Good Sam Club decals, and, if your dog accidentally knocks all your empties into the lot beside your rig, they'll kick you out, no kidding, even if you tell them it's Earth Recycling Day. Just so you know.

The Sprinter's heavy rear benches are removable--flip two latches per, and each lifts free of its tracks. You may require a partner to accomplish this task. Front airbags, traction control, and ABS are standard. I drove the Sprinter 190 miles one day on errands--there was a mother-in-law involved in this--and wasn't desperate to climb out. Eager, maybe, but not desperate. This is hard-core tradesman motoring at its most practical and most honest, with precious little suffering. You want more honesty than this, then sign up for the three-day Women Soaring in Unity seminar in Sedona.

Plus, you know, it's a chance to park a new Benz in your drive for only $36,228.

Review of 2009 Dodge Sprinter Passenger Van

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Light commercial vehicle (van) built by Daimler AG

This article is about the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle. For the Toyota compact sedan, see Toyota Sprinter.

Motor vehicle

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a light commercial vehicle (van) built by Daimler AG of Stuttgart, Germany as a large van, chassis cab, minibus, and pickup truck. In the past the Sprinter has been sold under the Mercedes-Benz, Dodge, Freightliner, and Volkswagen nameplates. In the U.S. it is built from complete knock down (CKD) kits by Freightliner. They are now primarily marketed by Mercedes-Benz. Re-badged and re-engined Sprinters were also sold by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles as the Volkswagen LT and the Volkswagen Crafter.

Post-facelift Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Freightliner Sprinter (US)

Europe[edit]

The first generation Sprinter was launched in Europe in 1995 to replace the famous but outdated Mercedes-Benz TN van dating from 1977. It was voted International Van of the Year for 1995.

North America[edit]

The first generation (VA Chassis) North American Sprinter was launched in 2001 in the U.S. and was originally branded as a Freightliner. Units sold to the rest of North America were badged as Mercedes-Benz until 2003 when they received Dodge branding. Units in the United States and Canada, but not in Mexico, could be purchased as a Dodge or Freightliner from 2003. The product was launched and supported by DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC, a small division based in Huntersville, North Carolina. Key individuals from DaimlerChrysler Commercial Vehicle Division and Freightliner Trucks were selected to spearhead the effort and made up the bulk of the division. DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC retained sole responsibility for the North American Sprinter market until the sales, service and parts support responsibilities were absorbed by Chrysler Commercial Vehicle Division in 2004. Nearly all of the original staff were retained, though the base of operations shifted from North Carolina to Auburn Hills, Michigan. The remainder of DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC remained active in Huntersville as an engineering, upfitter certification and safety compliance resource in support of the Sprinter.

For 2003, DaimlerChrysler introduced a Dodge branded version of the Sprinter to the North American market. It was identical to the Freightliner Trucks version except for minor styling details and badging. Rather than redesign the aging Dodge Ram Van which had used the same basic body and layout since the 1970s and was discontinued in 2003, DaimlerChrysler chose to replace it with the Sprinter.

From 2001 until 2006, cargo van versions of the Sprinter were manufactured in Düsseldorf, Germany, partially disassembled and shipped to a facility in Gaffney, South Carolina where they were reassembled. The cargo versions, classified as light trucks, are subject to the 25% chicken tax if imported as a complete unit, which is avoided by the disassembly and subsequent reassembly. Passenger vans were not subject to the same tax classifications and were imported as an assembled unit through Mercedes-Benz in Jacksonville, Florida.

The cargo version of this model is reassembled at a plant in Ladson, South Carolina which was previously used as an American LaFrance factory. Like its predecessor, the passenger version is imported as a complete unit. The previous reassembly facility in Gaffney, South Carolina continues to be used by Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation.

Japan[edit]

The Sprinter van was sold as the Mercedes-Benz Transporter T1N due to Toyota using the name Toyota Sprinter, a version of the Corolla.

Iran[edit]

The model 314 of the first generation is still assembled by Iran Khodro Diesel.[3] It is used as an ambulance.

Vietnam[edit]

The first generation Sprinter was assembled by Mercedes Benz Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City from CKD kits to avoid high local import duties.[5][6]

Sprinter Classic[edit]

Since 2013, the 2000-2006 Sprinter model has been revived in Russian markets only as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Classic. The phase 2 2002-2006 grille was chosen for use on the Sprinter Classic and the 2000-2006 dashboard design. Sprinter Classic used the steering wheel from the 2006-2014 Sprinter models. The Sprinter Classic is built by the Gorky Automobile Plant at Nizhny Novgorod for service in Russian/Eastern European markets only.[7]

Initial release[edit]

Pre-facelift Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Pre-facelift Freightliner Sprinter

Dodge Sprinter 2500

The second generation Sprinter was introduced in Europe in 2006. It was voted Van of the Year 2007 and again in 2008 by Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine. 2012 Information and Fuel Consumption Figures.[9]

Also known as the NCV3[10] or New Concept Van 3. The NCV3 appeared in Europe and in other countries in the 2006 model year. North America received its own NCV3 for the 2007 model year.[11]

The US cargo version of the 906 NCV3 comes in two wheelbases options (144", 170"), two roof heights (standard 60.6", high 72.4"), three lengths (Short 233.3", Standard 274.2, Extended 289.8"), and two weight classes (2500, 3500).[12] 3500 models have the option of dual rear wheels or extra-wide "super single" wheels in some, but not all, markets. Neither the 128" wheelbase nor the rear super single tires are available in the United States market. The US cargo version are reassembled from kits in an assembly plant located in Ladson, South Carolina, while the passenger models are imported directly from Germany.

The second-generation 906 was produced in Argentina only for export markets—except Mercosur markets (Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay)—from 2007 until 2010, but in 2011 announced new production of the second generation in the Centro Industrial J. Manuel Fangio, in Buenos Aires[13] with the brand new OM 651 engine (also local made) and exported to the rest of America (including Mercosur markets). Since 2012, it is manufactured for the Mercosur and 40 other countries.

Production[edit]

A class action lawsuit was filed in California state court against Mercedes-Benz alleging the defendant has sold Mercedes-Benz Sprinter models 2500 and 3500 with water that leaked from the air conditioning unit in the roof onto the passenger area. The leakage of air conditioning unit was also discovered on Dodge Sprinter made by Mercedes-Benz from 2003 through 2009. The lawsuit affected California residents with the rooftop AC units and Sprinters equipped with the rear AC.[14][15]

2013 update[edit]

Sprinter (2013–2019)[edit]

Changes include the addition of new assistance systems (crosswind stabilization, collision avoidance system (optional), blind spot monitor (optional), adaptive highbeam, lane departure warning system), Euro VI emissions compliance, redesigned radiator grille, more angular headlights, new upholstery and seat coverings, thicker steering wheel, optional fresh air nozzles boast chrome applications, new-generation radio system.

The vehicle was unveiled in 2014 International Commercial Vehicles show.[16]

Ordering began in June 2013, followed by deliveries in September 2013. Early models include ECO-Gear six-speed manual transmission or the 7G-TRONIC PLUS seven-speed automatic transmission with lock-up clutch.[17][18]

US models went on sale in fall 2013 as 2014 model year vehicles. Early models included a choice of 2 engines (2.1-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel (163PS) with 7-speed automatic, 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel (190PS) with 5-speed automatic), 144" & 170" wheelbase (both engines), 3 body lengths, high-roof option, 5 configurations (Cargo, Crew, Passenger, MiniBus, Cab Chassis).[19]

In September 2018, e-commerce platform Amazon announced that they had contracted to acquire 20,000 Amazon-badged Sprinters to be available for small business partners of their proprietary logistics service.[20]

Sprinter 4x4[edit]

Early models include Sprinter 313/513 BlueTec 4x4, Sprinter 316/516 BlueTec 4x4, Sprinter 319/519 BlueTec 4x4; Eco Gear six-speed manual or five-speed automatic (transmission with converter Sprinter 319/519 BlueTec 4x4).[21][22]

US models were set to go on sale in the first quarter of 2015 as 2015 model year vehicles. Early models included 144" and 170" wheelbases in low and high roof configurations, 5 body styles (Passenger Van, Crew Van (mixed 2-row passenger and cargo application), and Cargo Van (both 8,550 and 11,030 GVWRs)), 1 engine choice (3.0 L V6 BlueTEC (exclusive 4x4 powertrain)).[23]

Algeria[edit]

From 2014 Algeria started manufacturing the latest model of sprinter Sprinter 319/519 4x2 and 4x4 for civilian and military use.

2014 Facelift[edit]

Facelift Freightliner Sprinter

For the 2014 model year the Sprinter receives a more stylish and upright grille with Mercedes' signature 3 slat design. In an effort to make the Sprinter's fuel economy more competitive, North American models will get the 2.1L OM651 2-Stage turbo diesel engine[24] formerly only available overseas, while the 3.0L will be optional.[25] The 2.1L engine (in Europe also the 3.0 L) will be mated to a new 7 speed automatic transmission.

Production[edit]

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter was built in Daimler's Mercedes-Benz Düsseldorf and Ludwigsfelde production plants.

Between July 2013 and the end of May 2014, Mercedes-Benz Vans sold around 134,000 units of the new model of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in Europe and North America.[30]

Production version of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based Volkswagen Crafter by Mercedes-Benz Vans was set to end in 2016.[31]

Marketing[edit]

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans were used in the Boost by Mercedes-Benz custom transportation program.[32]

Third generation (2019–present)[edit]

Motor vehicle

The third-generation Sprinter debuted on 6 February 2018 at the Mercedes-Benz logistics center in Duisburg and was available to purchase from June 2018. It is the first generation to include a front-wheel-drive van in the line-up. A range of technology and comfort features are standard or optional.[33]

The Freightliner version was discontinued after the 2021 model year.[34]

Uses[edit]

The Sprinter is designed primarily for business, not private users, although recreational vehicle (RV) conversions are available. In the United States, the first generation Sprinters (2001–2006) were offered solely with the Mercedes-Benz 2.7 litre straight 5 cylinderturbocharged Diesel.

Companies are replacing van conversions with wide bus bodies—Sprinters with side-facing benches and tall right-side doors—as campus shuttles. Limited numbers of complete "wagons" (passenger vans) are being produced in Germany and shipped complete to the United States mostly for personal and church van uses. Typical Sprinter Wagons accommodate 8 to 10 passengers and have glass in all possible factory positions. Vans shipped to the United States on-spec (speculation to sell by dealer/distributor) are mostly sent in Arctic White color, but many colors are available. The Dodge dealer network for Sprinters is limited to certified locations (known as "Business Link" certified dealers, usually only awarded to "Five Star" certified dealers), and dealer knowledge is still limited in both sales and service. Special orders typically take one to three months for delivery, and may take even longer due to the assembly and disassembly in Germany, and exporting parts to South Carolina for re-assembly. The exception is passenger van models which are assembled in Germany and exported as complete vehicles. This is because of the United States Chicken Tax. As an unintended consequence, several importers of light trucks have circumvented the tariff via loopholes, known as tariff engineering. Ford (ostensibly a company that the tax was designed to protect), imported its first-generation Transit Connect light trucks as "passenger vehicles" to the U.S. from Turkey, and immediately stripped and shredded portions of their interiors (e.g., installed rear seats, seatbelts) in a warehouse outside Baltimore.[35] To import vans built in Germany, Mercedes "disassembled them and shipped the pieces to South Carolina, where American workers put them back together in a small kit assembly building."[36] The resulting vehicles emerge as locally manufactured, free from the tariff.

In North America, most Sprinters are sold as cargo vans to expediters in the United States. Such expediters are similar to truck drivers, except they take smaller loads and will wait after unloading until dispatchers find another customer nearby to transport goods. The advent of the Sprinter van with its cargo space of 13-1/2 feet (4.1 m) has allowed van expediters to take three 48 x 48 in (1.22 x 1.22 m) skids or pallets, where previously they were limited to a capacity of two pallets A Sprinter is capable of hauling approximately 3,000 lb (1,400 kg) of cargo. The vehicle has been adopted by the police in Hong Kong, United Kingdom and in Poland, also and as an ambulance by countries in Western Europe, Scandinavia, the US, Australia and New Zealand. The 515 CDI has become the standard ambulance for use by the National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom, and the Health Service Executive(HSE) in the Republic of Ireland.[citation needed]

Another market in which Sprinters are gaining ground is as van conversions and recreational vehicles. Conversions include RV's, limousines, family and luxury vans, office vans, wheelchair accessible vans and golf vans. Sprinter RV conversions can also be called Sprinter campervans. Sprinter conversions have been produced by several RV and coach manufacturers. Chilled box versions of the Sprinter currently make up the majority of the supermarket Home Delivery fleet across the UK, but demand for these vans has begun to decline. ASDA recently announced that its new fleet would be primarily custom IVECO vans, following in the footsteps of Tesco. Mercedes are currently working with Waitrose Home Delivery, who currently use chilled LWB HR Sprinters, on a prototype of a new generation home-delivery van, which is currently being used in select stores, aiming to cut emissions, costs and increase time-efficiency.

Sprinters have been used globally as television production vehicles, most commonly as ENG (Electronic News Gathering) and SNG (Satellite News Gathering) vehicles. These are a popular choice for local affiliates for their maneuverability in metropolitan areas and the lack of DOT regulations (in the under 10,000lbs versions).

Despite not being marketed as a family vehicle, a custom-modified Dodge-branded Sprinter was used by the ten-member Gosselin family, the subjects of the TLC reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8.[37]

In Colombia the Sprinter is the most popular van for intercity transport. The purchase of a luxuriously appointed Sprinter by the son of former President Julio Cesar Turbay, Julio Cesar Turbay, Jr. prompted a scandal.[38]

A Mercedes Sprinter was the vehicle used by Mike and Frank on the History Channel reality series American Pickers until Season 6, when it was replaced by a Ford Transit.[39]

The van is also used as a mobile command center by the Garda Síochána which is the national police force of the Republic of Ireland.[citation needed]

A chassis of the Sprinter is also expected to be used for the upcoming Astrovan II which will be made by Airstream to transport Boeing commercial crew astronauts to Cape Canaveral Space Launch Complex 41 where they would board the CST-100 Starliner on their way to the International Space Station.[40]

Passenger minibuses[edit]

Although primarily marketed as a goods van, the Sprinter has 4 variants designed to carry passengers. These are made by removing parts of the walls and replacing them with glass window panels.

Sprinter Mobility[edit]

This is the smallest of the Sprinter minibuses. There are 4 sub-variants: the 23, 33, 35 and 45. It has 8-18 seats & and is 6.9-7.4 metres long. It has 4 doors: 1 on either side of the driver and front passenger seats (which, like in a van, are segregated from the main passenger compartment), a sliding door in the middle, which goes into the rear passenger seating area, and a set of double doors at the back going into the disabled area with an elevator that can be extended out of the doors when they are open.[41]

It is designed for paratransit.

Sprinter Transfer[edit]

This minibus is a longer variant of the Sprinter Mobility where the front passenger seat has been removed and the front passenger seat door now acts as the door for all passengers. In addition, the back wall has seats along it, but can be opened as a door and the seats removed to make modifications to the interior of the vehicle. It comes in 5 sub-variants: 23, 34, 35, 45 and 55. It has 13-22 seats and is 5.9-7.7 metres long.

It is designed for bus services to hamlets.

Sprinter Travel[edit]

This bus has a high-floor, and in addition to the driver's door, has just 1 automatic passenger door with steps. It is 7.4-7.7 metres long and has 17-19 seats.

It is marketed as a mini-coach.

Sprinter City[edit]

A Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 77 minibus

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City minibus variant has been in production since 1995 and is marketed through EvoBus. The Freightliner variant has been in production since 2007. There are three sizes, Sprinter City 35, 65 and 77, which seat from 10 to 16 passengers; including standing passengers, these versions can accommodate 22 to 40 passengers. The 77 variant has a low floor throughout and a third pair of wheels at the rear.[42] The Sprinter City has two automatic doors: a set of double doors at the front, used for passengers getting on or off and having a disabled ramp; and a single door behind the rear wheel for passengers alighting, which opens off some stairs in the high-floor area. There is also a manual door on the offside into the driver's cab. The 77 variant has double rear doors.[43]

Engines[edit]

A model 308 D adapted for use as a postbusin Austria (2008)

For engine choices, the Sprinter is currently offered with inline four and V6diesel engines; V6 petrol/gasoline; or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) engines in Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America. In North America, only the six cylinder 3.0 L turbodiesel and 4 cylinder 2.1 L turbo diesel engines are offered. In Brazil, between 1998 and 2002, are used a Maxion/Rover HSD Diesel engine, with 2,5Lt. The versions are 310D with 95PS (Turbo Diesel) and 312D, with 115PS (Turbo Diesel Intercooler).

An electric hybrid version has been tested, but is not currently officially part of the Sprinter range.[44][45][46] 2,000 electric Sprinters are to be made by VDL Groep from 2016.[47]
