Daimler AG of Stuttgart, Germany, built the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter as a large pickup truck, minibus, chassis cab, and luxury van. Before this period, Sprinter was under the nameplates of Volkswagen, Freightliner, Dodge, and Mercedes-Benz. In the US, Freightliner built it from complete knockdown kits. Right now, Mercedes-Benz is the primary marketer of Sprinter. The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles now sells some of the models with new engine and badge as the Volkswagen Crafter and Volkswagen LT.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter First Generation (1995 to 2006)
The launch of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter’s first generation came about in 1995 in Europe. The idea of its launch was to replace the famous but dated Mercedes-Benz TN van the company acquired in 1977. The van offered more safety features than the competitors. The package has seatbelt buckles attached to the seat, three-point seatbelts adjustable in height, a driver airbag on request, automatic brake differential, a standard ABS anti-lock braking system, and disk brakes all-around.
With these connectivity and functionality packages, Sprinter vans were more than a load carrier. They developed every feature to help reduce ownership’s total cost and ensure efficiencies for operators. Drivers can also apply the WiFi on-board sticker.
More Innovations in 2000
As part of an extensive facelift and for the continuation of the development, the manufacturer gave the 2000 Sprinter more powerful headlamps. More on the active safety inspired advanced passive safety. Mercedes-Benz included the driver airbag as part of the standard equipment and optional for a co-driver airbag.
The double airbag can protect the passenger occupying the co-driver bench seat’s inner seat since it is quite large. The manufacturer also ensured maintaining the driver’s fitness level by redesigning the driver’s cockpit, which has a passenger car’s appearance. The gear was at an easy-to-reach height when it was redesigned as a control lever.
2002 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
The new machine sets the benchmark with the available ESP. Mercedes-Benz further refined the new Sprinter with new features, such as the Electronic Stability Program and a more robust brake booster. When it comes to vans’ safety technology, ESP is a revolution since drivers can get active assistance during critical driving situations.
Mercedes-Benz included ESP in all Sprinter chassis’ standard equipment up to a gross vehicle mass of 3.5t.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Second Generation (2006 to 2018)
The company introduced Mercedes-Benz Sprinter second generation in 2006 in Europe. In 2007 and 2008, Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine voted it Sprinter Van of the Year. Sprinter has ADAPTIVE ESP, and it is safer than before. Mercedes-Benz improved safety and comfort with the rear axle’s new parabolic springs and the front axle’s GFRP transverse leaf spring. And with the driver’s fitness level on long-distance journeys as part of the added comfort of the Sprinter.
The Sprinter is adaptive to several loading conditions because of mass and center of gravity detection. As such, critical driving situations can now enjoy specific and precise control. There is also a similarity in adapting to different bodies. The ESP can prevent the machine from rolling backward when it pulls away on an incline.
There was an additional function of the ESP in 2009, with adaptive brake lights with the trailer stabilization. Mercedes-Benz demisted the wide-angle mirror glass with the heated outside mirrors and relocated the front fog lamps to a lower position to better illuminate the road. There was now a start-off assist with the optional automatic transmission.
The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter had new driver assistance systems when it launched in 2013, including Crosswind Assist. There was also Collision Prevention Assist that comprises distance warning and adaptive braking assistance system, Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and High Beam Assist.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Third Generation (2019 to present)
In 2018, Mercedes-Benz debuted the third generation of Sprinter at Mercedes-Benz Logistics Center in Duisburg. The company made it available to purchase from June 2018. The new Sprinter has a contemporary yet athletic appearance with new taillights and headlamps. Operators can also slide into the new machine to enjoy the latest infotainment system, easy voice prompt controls, and MBUX.
The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter comes in a wide range of sizes and shapes, with varied engine choices. The 188-hp turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V6 and 188-hp turbo 2.0-liter 4 are the two powertrain options available. As such, the transmission options are a nine-speed and a seven-speed automatic option. Its drivetrain comes in four- and back-wheel drive. There are also several modern safety technology options with its fully-furnished drivers-assist package.
Operators can cruise the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter freight van that continues to get smarter and highly progressed with some features like navigating applications, rear-view camera display, multimedia touchscreen control, active brake assist, and much more. Some of the most recent updates include an upgraded infotainment system, center-console buttons, a user-friendly steering wheel, and superb voice controls.
Drivers can find the top-notch Mercedes-Benz van in a wide range of configurations and sizes. The new model revamped feels relatively minimal even though the 2019 model’s redesign was substantial. Some external refreshes include cabin improvement, changes in the build, and updated tail and headlights.
