The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is full-size commercial van, an essential vehicle for tradesmen and delivery men. According to Mercedes, fifteen percent of sales end up as hotel buses or high-end conversions topping $150,000 that transport executives and celebrities around town.

Mercedes-Benz is proud of the changes for its redesigned 2014 Sprinter cargo van, available in the fall of 2013 at a Mercedes-Benz dealer in Arizona. Some of the most exciting changes include the availability of a turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine and fresh front-end styling that resembles Mercedes-Benz’s SUV and truck family. According to Mercedes-Benz, the 2014 Sprinter is the most fuel-efficient, safest, greenest and the most comfortable large van that Mercedes-Benz every built.

For 2014, buyers for the first time have the choice of two turbocharged diesel engines. The 2013 Sprinter was offered with one engine, a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 that was mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Added to the line is a 2.1-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine is standard in all Sprinter models and rated at 161 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes is expecting the four-cylinder engine to provide up to an 18 percent improvement in fuel economy over the V6.

In addition, the 2014 Sprinter offers several new options including a navigation system and safety systems to help reduce accidents. New for 2014 includes an optional system that warns the driver if a vehicle is in an adjacent lane. Also optional is a system that uses a camera to monitor the stripes between the lanes on a highway. If the system determines the driver is inattentive or falling asleep, a loud audio signal is activated. Highbeam Assist has also been added to the option list, a system that uses a camera to automatically activate the high beam headlamps.
