CR Model Summary
The Sprinter is aimed at the commercial market and offers cargo and passenger versions. Developed by Mercedes-Benz's commercial truck division, as evident by the Mercedes switchgear inside, the Sprinter is sold at Freightliner dealers as well. A myriad of wheelbases, roof heights, and seat configurations are available. A turbodiesel V6 is standard, offering better fuel economy than rival vans. ESC is standard. The interior is huge but you have to climb into it. Handling is decent considering the Sprinter's size. Mercedes ended its Sprinter re-badging partnership with Chrysler's Dodge brand, making all Sprinter vans Mercedes-Benz vehicles since 2010.
