2-Stage Turbo Diesel EngineNow you can have the benefits of turbocharged power, diesel fuel economy and durability in one compact package. Standard on all Sprinter models, the new OM651 2-stage turbo diesel engine produces 265 lb-ft of torque starting at a low 1,400 rpm, giving you ample pulling power when you need it. The OM651 also delivers up to 18%25 better fuel economy over the superior efficiency of the 6-cylinder/5-speed combination, which will remain available as an option. As for the OM651’s durability, how does 15,000 miles11 between maintenance checks sound?
7-Speed 7G-TRONIC TransmissionCan a transmission reduce interior noise? Or lower the total cost of vehicle ownership? The new 7-speed
7G-TRONIC transmission does all that and more. This technologically advanced transmission is the first of its kind in the segment. Like the outstanding 5-speed/6-cylinder combination, which will remain available as an option, the 7G-TRONIC is perfectly mated to the OM651 diesel engine’s power output. The seven gears improve acceleration and the short shift times make the ride smoother. The gears also create slower engine speeds, which means low fuel consumption, reduced noise, longer service life and low maintenance costs.
BlueEFFICIENCYBlueEFFICIENCY is the term that encompasses all the fuel-saving and emission-reducing efforts Mercedes-Benz uses. The engineers took that concept to the next level when they reviewed virtually every aspect of the new Sprinter’s operation. As a result, BlueEFFICIENCY is further optimized with new features that include a regulated fuel pump, efficiency-enhanced alternator, ECO steering pump and more. That’s why the new Sprinter’s 2-stage turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine9 meets the most stringent emission standards and delivers up to 18%25 better fuel economy over our already fuel-efficient V6 engine and 5-speed transmission, which will remain available as an option.
Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)4Mercedes-Benz puts your safety first once again with the Load-Adaptive ESP®4 with Trailer Stability Assist. This innovative safety feature is standard on all Sprinter models. ESP® takes the vehicle load and center of gravity into account, and brakes individual wheels and reduces engine power to stabilize the vehicle. If you’re towing, Trailer Stability Assist stops unwanted trailer movement through selective brake intervention as well.
Highbeam AssistWhen it comes to relieving stress as you are driving, little benefits can make a big difference. Highbeam Assist can take the annoyance of constantly switching between high and low beams out of your driving experience. Plus the system optimizes high beam usage, which helps your evening visibility. Part of the optional Active Safety Packages, this available feature utilizes a camera located on the inside of the windshield to detect traffic ahead and oncoming vehicles and activates/deactivates high beams depending upon the situation. The result is one less thing to think about, and a more relaxed drive.
Blind Spot Assist21Even for the most attentive driver, looking behind while changing lanes at speed can be potentially dangerous. Mercedes-Benz engineers recognized this and developed Blind Spot Assist. Available as part of the optional Active Safety Packages, Blind Spot Assist uses four radar sensors to monitor the surroundings to the sides and back of the Sprinter. If the system detects that another vehicle is alongside, it alerts the driver via an audio signal and a red icon in the outside rear view mirror. It’s like having an extra set of eyes.
Lane Keeping Assist22It could be just a long day, or a simple distraction for a split second, but drifting out of a lane can happen before one even realizes it. Lane Keeping Assist is designed to recognize that unintentional movement out of the lane and helps avoid accidents. Available as part of the Active Safety Plus Package, this innovation uses a camera in the windshield to monitor the markings on the pavement up ahead while driving. If the Sprinter drifts out of lane without using a turn signal, the system senses it and sends a visible and audible signal to the driver. It could be the most important wake-up call that’s ever delivered.
COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST23COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST is another innovative feature that enhances driving safety by helping to avoid or minimize the severity of rear-end collisions. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST is part of the available Active Safety Plus Package. This feature combines a radar-based proximity warning function with the BAS® PRO Brake Assist6. If the distance to the vehicle ahead drops below the safety threshold for several seconds, a warning lamp lights up in the instrument cluster. If the distance continues to decrease rapidly, an intermittent warning is sounded as well. At the same time, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST activates BAS® PRO Brake Assist. If the system then senses the driver applying the brakes, BAS® PRO Brake Assist boosts the braking pressure necessary to help avoid a rear-end collision.
Redesigned InteriorFor the amount of time you spend in your commercial vehicle, it should be as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The new Sprinter’s cockpit was redesigned with you in mind, offering more ways to make your time behind the wheel less stressful. Interior upgrades include a new optional multifunction steering wheel, new gearshift lever and a large 5.8” color display. The firmer and more supportive driver and passenger seats are crafted from more durable upholstery to resist everyday wear and improve breathability. Mercedes-Benz designers turned up the entertainment as well, with a standard Audio 15 head unit that includes iPod® interface, USB connection and more.26
Redesigned ExteriorFrom the moment it comes into view, you can see that this vehicle is something special. The new Sprinter complements its numerous innovations with a bold progressive profile. The redesigned front section begins at the confident new-look radiator grille, and continues via a smooth transition to the reshaped headlamps. The recontoured hood further accentuates this distinctive appearance and offers dramatic proof that this is the new face of commercial vehicles, and it’s coming your way.
