It light work of extreme like the Timmelsjoch, even in the of conditions in the depths of winter. It away in muddy excavations, and sand and scree pistes in the corners of the world. With drive, the new Sprinter 4×4 is its outstanding capabilities even the most adverse of conditions. The number-one van with a GVW of around 3.5 t the strictest of requirements when it to traction. Born to run. – the Vans brand claim the high-traction Sprinter 4×4 to a

Sprinter 4×4: all-wheel for professionals rather than the

When the going gets the Sprinter gets going: the new 4×4 provides that extra traction under conditions. The Sprinter 4×4 is at home transporting hotel to snowy Alpine resorts the panel van can convey work materials and tools to wind in wet fields. The crewcab can pull machinery out of pits, and the chassis camper van body can take across rocky or sandy

The Sprinter 4×4 is an all-wheel-drive van for rather than the boulevard. Its terrain? Construction sites, snowy regions and natural And it covers an equally wide of industries: construction, building energy supply, forestry, the business and, last but not people with a thirst for

Engageable all-wheel drive, new Speed Regulation

As a true the Sprinter 4×4 makes as easy as possible for its driver. Its drive can be engaged at the press of a whereupon the 4ETS electronic system takes over. The simply needs to make use of accelerator and steering wheel the technology takes care of the The all-wheel drive is integrated the standard-fit Electronic Stability ESP and complements the safety systems

The Sprinter 4×4 now comes the option of Downhill Speed (DSR), which ensures a preselected speed is maintained when driving downhill. is possible thanks to the interaction the engine, transmission and specifically brake actuation. DSR is activated a button in the cockpit. The speed is controlled using the stalk for the control — the prerequisite for

As a further option, Mercedes-Benz can the Sprinter 4×4 with Assist and off-road tyres extremely deep tread. the Sprinter 4×4 can be individualised by from the familiar array of extras.

4ETS: proven technology

In keeping with the 4×4 van’s areas of the all-wheel-drive system has a professional based on the Mercedes-Benz 4ETS traction system. This is also used in the Vito Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, and the and GL-Class off-roaders.

In contrast to models, however, the Sprinter’s drive is engageable so as to cover the range of conditions under the van has to operate. Furthermore, this minimises fuel consumption in use.

The all-wheel drive can be when the engine is running, when the vehicle is stationary or at low of up to 10 km/h, using a switch on the panel. In this case, an motor engages a pair of gears in the transfer case. An lamp in the switch informs the that the all-wheel drive is

In contrast to other systems of type, the Sprinter’s engageable drive does not provide a through-drive. The power is transmitted all the components of the standard-fit Adaptive ESP operational even when drive is selected, and the acceleration control (ASR) is likewise

When all-wheel drive is the drive power of the Sprinter is split 35:65 between the and rear axles in normal ensuring handling performance on a par with the Sprinter’s usual drive in everyday operation.

traction system replaces up to differential locks

The Sprinter model’s all-wheel-drive system with the electronic traction 4ETS instead of with differential locks: should one or of the wheels lose traction on ground, 4ETS brakes the wheels automatically with pulses and, consequently, the drive torque at the wheels good traction by the same

To do this, 4ETS uses the ABS sensors. Automatic brake by means of 4ETS has the same as up to three differential locks: the lock, the rear axle and the front axle lock.

The have flange-mounted the transfer directly onto the main while the front-axle drive has kept very compact. It has a oil fill and, like the front-axle drive shafts, no maintenance.

Even more the Sprinter 4×4 with gear

The additional Low Range gear for off-road use, as an option, further underlines the that the Sprinter 4×4 van is designed for professionals. Engaged at the of a button with the vehicle the engine running, the 4×4 activated and the clutch pedal the ratio is shortened by a factor of i.e. by 42 percent. The maximum speeds obtainable in the individual are reduced accordingly whilst is increased.

Now the Sprinter can be driven anticipation at low speed in off-road with sparing use of the clutch. The gear comes in handy for use of the clutch in case of frequent or where there is a high of driving in mountainous regions and in cases where the vehicle is used with a full or for towing a trailer in off-road

The reduction gear is straight-cut, it extremely robust to maximise loadability. If the Sprinter 4×4 is with the optional Downhill Regulation DSR, it is activated when the reduction gear is

Raised body for improved performance

Although the Sprinter is not an off-roader, its raised body (by 110 mm at the and by 80 mm at the rear) endows it with similar to those of a cross-country

By way of example, the approach angle of the with a gross vehicle of 3.5 t is 28 degrees instead of 18 degrees in the rear-wheel-drive Sprinter while, in the van with short overhang, the angle is 27 degrees (conventional 22 degrees). The breakover angle – is important for driving over – is 25 degrees in the standard-wheelbase Sprinter instead of the usual 17 degrees. on engine version, the slope ability is around 20 percent than in the Sprinter with drive. Equally impressive, at 610 mm, is the 4×4’s fording depth 4×2: 500 mm).

Because the body is raised, the additional turn signal in the exterior rear view would be above the maximum height. For this reason, the 4×4 is provided with turn signal indicator in the front side panels of the For the same reason, the panel van and versions have their fog lamp and rear reversing integrated in the bumper.

The Sprinter also features a 100-litre tank as standard. Grab for the driver and co-driver make it to get into the higher cab. with the Sprinter with drive, the front and rear setups include anti-roll or reinforced anti-roll bars.

Low weight, easy handling

The weight of the all-wheel drive in the 4×4 comes to just kg depending on version. The comparatively low weight is attributable to the 4ETS which dispenses with the for mechanical differential locks.

On the the Sprinter 4×4 impresses its excellent control and perfect It conveys an air of safety and effortless typical of the brand as well as the comfort as a Sprinter with drive.

Fully integrated in ESP

The 4ETS traction control is fully integrated in the Adaptive ESP Stability Program. Its control have been specially to the all-wheel-drive system whilst all of the functions of the Adaptive ESP: braking system (ABS), skid control (ASR), brake force distribution Brake Assist (BAS) and the Assist system (AAS).

One important aspect for the many body variants and attachments is the and centre-of-gravity detection feature Adaptive Control LAC). In the of special-purpose bodies, for example, ESP detects a high centre of based on the vehicle’s movements and the control characteristics accordingly. driving off-road especially, ESP therefore enhances safety, for when the vehicle is being along a steeply angled

In combination with a factory-fitted coupling, the system is completed by Stability Assist, which the oscillating movements of the trailer by of selective application of the brakes on wheels. All-wheel drive and ESP perfectly: the vehicle/trailer combination is immediately and put back on track.

ASR in defined driving situations

on the driving situation, it may be advisable to the ASR acceleration skid control on the 4×4, which can be done at the of a button. This briefly the control thresholds so as to increase the by increasing the wheel slip, is of advantage, for example, when chains are in use or when the vehicle is driven on a gravel road. The ASR is reactivated automatically at speeds 40 and 60 km/h. The same is true if the slip is impermissibly high or more than ten seconds in ASR Off ESP remains active in all situations.

In any 4ETS stops critical situations from arising. As the speed increases, for example, the effect within an axle is to prevent yaw (oscillation about the axis) in the interests of driving Despite such interventions, is no possibility of the braking system if, under extreme off-road the temperature of the brakes rises to high values, 4ETS reduces the locking effect the brakes have cooled again. An indicator lamp the driver aware of this.

4×4: ecofriendly in line the Euro VI emissions standard

The 4×4 benefits from the numerous innovations that made the new Sprinter the undisputed leader among vans in the 3.5 t since its launch in the middle of the

This means that the 4×4 also features a new range that meets the of the future Euro VI emissions This is a major plus for a van with all-wheel drive often operates in environmentally areas. The Sprinter complies the stringent limits by means of engine technology and SCR technology the injection of AdBlue into the gas.

The product engineers taken advantage of the additional gas aftertreatment to optimise the injection the combustion process and the charge This has led to lower fuel and quieter combustion. In addition, the and ancillary assemblies have systematically trimmed to low consumption. here cover the transmission, axle and intelligent alternator for example.

High-torque BlueTec engine with a choice of two

The centrepiece of the diesel engine for the Sprinter is the four-cylinder OM 651 with a of 2.15 l. It has a bore of 83 mm and a long of 99 mm for high pulling power – a plus point when on demanding terrain especially. is always by means of a two-stage gas turbocharger system.

The peak is always available at low revs and a wide engine speed The combination of BlueTec engines exhaust gas recirculation and two-stage SCR technology with AdBlue and a particulate filter ensures exhaust gases.

The four-cylinder for the Sprinter 4×4 comes a choice of two outputs:

Sprinter BlueTec 4×4 95 kW (129 hp) at rpm, torque 305 Nm at 1200-2400 rpm

316/516 BlueTec 4×4 120 kW hp) at 3800 rpm, torque 360 Nm at rpm.

Boasting identical and torque data, the four-cylinder is also alternatively available as a 5b+ version for open model and chassis versions of the Sprinter In these cases, the SCR technology AdBlue injection, the key feature for compliance with the Euro VI standard, is omitted.

BlueTec engine: concentrated technology, power

If maximum power is the Sprinter 4×4 with the V6 OM 642 engine is just the ticket. The engine (bore x stroke: 83 x 92 mm) is on an aluminium crankcase. An offset pin and a balancer shaft make for an quiet-running engine. Technical include four overhead The six-cylinder engine for the Sprinter is available with the following

Sprinter 319/519 BlueTec 140 kW (190 hp) at 3800 rpm, 440 Nm at 1600-1800 rpm.

As standard, all of the variants are paired with the Eco six-speed manual transmission, is now even more economical to its wide ratio spread and the use of oil. As an alternative, the vehicle can be with a very easy-to-use automatic transmission with which makes it easier to under difficult conditions as the is able to concentrate solely on accelerating and braking.

Favourable consumption

With an all-wheel-drive van the Sprinter 4×4, the key aspect for demanding tasks is economy on reliable traction. Nevertheless, the 4×4 impresses with its low fuel consumption. Fuel in the panel van with four-cylinder VI BlueTec engine registered as a is low: the combined figure to NEDC for the Sprinter 316 BlueTec for example, is just 8.3 l/100 km, the Sprinter 313 BlueTec 4×4 just 0.3 l/100 km more this.

This means that the are around 0.4 to 0.8 l/100 km higher for the corresponding models with drive. Here it must be into account that the of variants have axle that are around ten percent to increase traction.

In the case of the 4×4 319 BlueTec, the combined consumption of 9.8-9.9 l/100 km to NEDC is almost identical to of the rear-wheel-drive model.

New safety also in the Sprinter 4×4

The 4×4 has already played a role as the 4ETS drive is fully integrated into the ESP Electronic Stability Program: all of the ESP functions are retained even the four-wheel drive is engaged.

the new Sprinter 4×4 benefits the five new assistance systems were introduced together the new Sprinter this year: Prevention Assist, Blind Assist, Highbeam Assist and Keeping Assist are already for the 4×4. Crosswind Assist be introduced for the 4×4 in 2014.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 4×4: performer with top traction

All models are durable, resilient and – none more so than the 4×4 with all-wheel When it comes to tough it is the van par excellence. Outstanding traction is with an extremely easy-to-use all-wheel-drive system.

The conventional system for the Mercedes-Benz Vito for excellent driving dynamics and The Vito is renowned for its very and precise handling characteristics. And the 4×4 enhances this thanks to its traction with all-wheel drive and, outstanding safety even the most adverse of conditions.

4×4: perfectly tuned all-wheel drive

The Vito makes life extremely for the driver, who just needs to as necessary and steer the vehicle. else is controlled by the traction As is the case with the Sprinter the all-wheel drive is based on electronic traction system The main difference is that the 4×4 has a permanent all-wheel-drive Although all-wheel drive not transform the van into an off-roader, it ensure maximum traction therefore, safety in tricky

Lightweight 4ETS instead of differential locks

In the case of the 4×4 with permanent drive, the drive power is in the ratio 35:65 between the and rear axles as for the Sprinter Handling performance is therefore much on a par with the Vito’s rear-wheel-drive system.

The all-wheel-drive works with the electronic system 4ETS instead of mechanical differential locks: one or more of the wheels lose on slippery ground, 4ETS the spinning wheels automatically short pulses and, increases the drive torque at the offering good traction by the amount. To do this, 4ETS the ABS wheel sensors. Automatic application by means of 4ETS can the effect of up to three differential the interaxle lock, the rear lock and the front axle

Fully integrated in Adaptive ESP

the Sprinter 4×4, the Vito comes with the 4ETS system fully integrated the Adaptive ESP Electronic Stability Its control characteristics have specially adapted to the all-wheel-drive whilst retaining all of the functions of the ESP.

Although the Vito is not a fully-fledged off-roader, it in no way shies from off-road driving. of the higher body, the angle of is 20 degrees (conventional drive 14 degrees) and the angle of departure for the with short wheelbase and overhang is 28 degrees (22 degrees) or 19 (15 degrees) in the case of a long The breakover angle – important driving over humps – is 19 in the case of the Vito 4×4 short wheelbase, instead of the 14 degrees. Ground clearance is 150 mm at the axle and 210 mm at the rear axle. climbing ability is around 20 higher than in the case of the with conventional drive depending on the engine.

The Vito swallows large loads

The system in the Vito 4×4 only 80 kg of weight, meaning the payload is only negligibly than that of the Vito conventional drive system. The 4×4 has a permissible GVW of 2800 or kg, depending on model variant.

the all-wheel drive only the overall height by around 70 mm, on model, the Vito 4×4 is below the important overall limit of two metres. It is therefore low for low entrances, multi-storey car parks and car washes – a key factor for unrestricted and everyday practicality.

Powerful engines, BlueEfficiency standard for crewbus

Clean and economical with top performance: the bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz Vito lies the four-cylinder CDI engine the OM 651 model series. The Vito meets the requirements of the Euro 5b+ standard. Its low fuel consumption CO2 emissions. One of the key factors behind is the BlueEfficiency technology, which is for the Vito crewbus registered as a car and optional for the panel van.

The 4×4 is available with the outputs:

Vito 113 CDI 4×4 100 kW hp) at 3800 rpm, torque 310 Nm at rpm

Vito 116 CDI 4×4 120 kW (163 hp) at rpm, torque 360 Nm at 1600-2400 rpm

wide usable engine range

A common-rail system is to inject the fuel. Both variants have a VNT turbocharger. As in the of the Sprinter 4×4, combining a speed of 3800 rpm and a high available at low engine speeds in a wide usable driving between around 1500 and rpm. This is of particular when driving off-road as the 4×4 does not require gear changes due to the engine’s When driving off-road, gear results in a loss of

BlueEfficiency reduces fuel

The BlueEfficiency technology specified as for the Vito crewbus registered as a car (optional for all other models) fuel consumption and emissions. management, tyres with rolling resistance, the Eco power pump, the controlled fuel and in-engine measures are proof the Vito 4×4 is also much state of the art.

transmission and all-wheel drive – a combination

Standard equipment for the 4×4 includes the exceptionally five-speed automatic transmission Mercedes-Benz that has been and tested a million times The combination of 4ETS and automatic is of immense benefit, especially driving off-road, as the driver is free to concentrate fully on is happening outside.

Vito models and prices

Mercedes-Benz numerous Vito 4×4 covering an extremely wide of applications in the commercial sector. All Vito 4×4 length — compact, long and — are available in conjunction a flat roof. It is available as a van, including the Effect and panel van model variants, as a Mixto with a second row of including the Worker Mixto variant, and as an exceptionally versatile including the Crew and Shuttle model variants.
