2010 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Designed specifically for commercial applications as passenger, cargo or chassis-cab vans, the Sprinter can be built on one of two wheelbases with one of three roof heights. The Sprinter competes in a class with the Chevrolet Express, Ford E-Series Wagon and GMC Savana.

New for 2010
The Sprinter has improved horsepower and torque on the Sprinter’s 3.0-liter diesel V-6 engine.

Exterior
The back doors open to the vehicle’s full height and swing open 270 degrees. One-touch, triple-flash turn signals and wide-angle mirrors are standard. An electronic sliding door is optional on both cargo and passenger models. Passenger vans include an emergency exit window.

  • Standard power windows, locks and integrated wide-angle mirrors
  • Standard 16-inch steel wheels
  • Optional 16-inch aluminum wheels
  • Standard sliding passenger-side door
  • Dual hinged doors in back with a 270-degree opening
  • Optional side doors (in place of sliding door)
  • Optional heated windshield and rain-sensing wipers

Interior
Up to 12 occupants fit inside a passenger-carrying Sprinter. Two people sit up front and as many as three more rows of seats can be installed. An optional removable four-seat rear bench is new for cargo vans. All models can have bucket seats in front. Sprinters have a flat cargo floor and tapered rear wheel housings.

  • Available cloth or vinyl seats
  • Standard air conditioning
  • Standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel
  • Standard CD player
  • Optional six-disc CD changer

Under the Hood
Sprinters come in 2500 (three-quarter-ton) and 3500 (one-ton) ratings, but only the 2500 series includes a passenger model. Sprinters are powered by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V-6 engine. It’s been revised for 2010 to produce 185 horsepower and 325 pounds-feet of torque.

Sprinters have an independent front suspension, rear leaf springs and power rack-and-pinion steering.

  • 185-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V-6 with 325 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed automatic transmission

Safety
The 12-passenger van includes an emergency exit window.

  • Optional side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Standard all-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard electronic stability system and traction control

Great cargo van

The 2010 sprinter cargo van is a beast. It can handle more cargo and weight than most other vans of similar size. And the dually ones are unique in that it is almost impossible to find anything that is the equivalent on the market. The diesel requires a little warm up time if it is cold outside but not much and is not a concern. The engine can go 500k miles though and is low maintenance. High ceiling, articulating doors, slide side door for space saving tight cargo loading and wide enough to fork lift pallets into the back and side. And the dually tire setup not only gives you better load capability but gives you better stability on the road. Overall I recommend the Sprinter Van.

Best Van - Period!

This is the real deal. Best van out there. Runs great, very good fuel mileage ( 22 mpg @ 70mph ), drives great on the open road, handles well at slow speeds. I get many compliments and lots of questions!
