Cheaper and more efficient


1. The new 2.1L turbocharged engine develops 161 hp and 265 lb-ft of

2. Power is sent to the rear through a seven-speed 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

3. The four-cylinder is available in any Sprinter configuration.

4. for the base cab and chassis four-cylinder will start at $34,790 fees and taxes with the van beginning at $35,920.

That all to change with the introduction of the Nissan NV2500 cargo Although still pickup based, the NV2500 did offer roof heights. But this the serious competition has shown up. Two of the key European rivals, the Ford and Fiat Ducato (aka Ram have arrived in America, engines and all.


With these new offering gasoline options, a dealer network and cheaper prices, Mercedes can no longer on the Sprinter’s lower cost of and greater utility for sales. So the is introducing a new engine for the commercial van in an attempt to shake things up in the once again.

The engine in is Mercedes-Benz four-cylinder turbocharged A four-pot in a full-size commercial van the big news here. After the ProMaster also uses a cylinder turbo-diesel. But the Ram’s despite only having cylinders, is the same displacement as the V6 option at 3.0 liters. The new four-cylinder in the Sprinter van measures in at only 2.1


Yes, is that Mercedes-Benz four-cylinder Quickly becoming the Bo Jackson of inline-fours, this power now finds itself in luxury crossovers and commercial vehicles. the 2.1-liter engine develops 161 hp and 265 of torque.

That is down 39 hp and a 104 lb-ft of torque compared to this same engine in the GLK 250 BlueTec. Mercedes’ official for this massive power is reliability but we feel it may have to do with not overshadowing the Sprinter’s 3.0 liter V6 turbo-diesel that makes 178 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.

But don’t let the numbers fool this engine is very for its size. Available in any wheelbase or height configuration, we were to sample a short wheelbase, cargo van. Thanks to the set-up, turbo lag is virtually off the line and a decent amount of is felt while accelerating to speeds. Having spent a lot of in the 2013 Sprinter, I have a good idea of how the larger V6 feels to drive. Of course new diesel feels down on compared to the V6, but the gap is much smaller I expected.

Part of the deficit is made up through the Like virtually every Mercedes product, the 2.1 liter van is equipped with a seven-speed plus automatic transmission. gearbox is very smooth in and much better than the automatic paired up to the V6.

The one area where the four-banger a bit to be desired compared to the V6 is sound; the new is far more audible in the Sprinter. in part to a harder working and louder diesel clatter, the Sprinter sounds like a big-rig. It is not overly intrusive or just there. And, it is worth the price to pay for a claimed 18 % in fuel efficiency over the V6. our very short all city we were able to achieve an fuel economy average of mpg; not bad for a massive box on wheels.


Revised for 2014, the features two new front end treatments on trim, with up-level featuring xenon headlamps and lights. Also added are a lot of new technology options like keep, blind spot and crash avoidance. Inside, the van is familiar with storage everywhere, cell phone power outlets and of course a forward view.

Pricing for the cab and chassis four-cylinder Sprinter start at $35,785 before and taxes with the cargo van at $36,915 including delivery. is almost $3,300 more than the entry level ProMaster, but the Sprinter does slightly more optioned


Having driven Sprinters before, I know how these vans are. a brief drive in the four version, it feels perfectly assuming loads are not too extreme. shuttles, RV conversions and lightweight applications will all be perfect for this new efficient offering Mercedes-Benz.
