2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter First Test

The New Sprinter Gets More Amenities and a New Engine

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Full Overview

The Euro-centric Sprinter has been in the U.S. since 2001, when its appearance was unlike anything else on the road. While things have stayed basically the same for a long time, in the near future, the Sprinter will soon have other competition from Europe, and the rivalry it currently has with the Transit and Ducato (aka Ram ProMaster) shifts here.

But the Sprinter has some advantages that the other vans will have to deal with. For starters, it truly is the Mercedes-Benz of vans. The Sprinter is the most refined in its class. It has the nicest interior, is powered by an excellent V-6 turbodiesel, and the interior is filled with Mercedes-quality features.

Is the Sprinter ready to take on its familiar rivals? To find out, we got behind the wheel of two different 2014 Sprinter 2500s. With the new model year, the Sprinter has a new look, inside and out. The changes to the outside are subtle, but if you look closely, you can see that the nose looks different. The Sprinter has a new grille, one that looks like an oversized version of the grille you would see on a Mercedes-Benz sedan or SUV. It's flanked by new headlights and sits below a hood that is now taller and designed to provide more protection for pedestrians. One of the key elements the van keeps is the front step that makes it easier to reach the windshield and engine bay for cleaning and maintenance.

Under the new hood is big news for the Sprinter for 2014. For the first time in the U.S. it will be available with a second engine: a 161-hp, 266-lb-ft 2.1-liter I-4 turbodiesel, similar to the engine that is an option in the GLK sport/utility. And with its introduction it becomes the van's base engine. The new engine is backed by a seven-speed automatic, a move that more closely aligns this Sprinter with the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. (The returning 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel, with 188 hp and 325-lb-ft, continues on essentially unchanged with a five-speed automatic.) We had the opportunity to drive Sprinters powered by both engines, and drove both of them empty and full of gear. We were fairly sure the V-6 Sprinter would continue to impress (and it did), but were more skeptical about the I-4's performance in such a large vehicle.

We shouldn't have worried. We came away from the experience pleasantly surprised by the amount of power the I-4 provided. With the four it did surprisingly well. Despite the difference in power—the inline-four falls short of the V-6 by 27 hp and 59 lb-ft—there is plenty of power, and anyone whose job it is to make deliveries would be happy with the smaller engine. The speed helps make the power discrepancy less noticeable. At the track, the four-cylinder van accelerated to 60 mph in 12.6 seconds and finished the quarter mile in 18.8 seconds at 70.9 mph. What is truly impressive about these numbers is that they really aren't that far off from those of the V-6-powered van, which hit 60 in 12.4 seconds and ran the quarter in 18.7 seconds at 71.8 mph. That also makes us wonder what the V-6 could do if it were backed by the seven-speed automatic. The van stopped from 60 mph in 134 feet in the V-6-equipped model and in feet 136 in the one with the I-4. Considering the acceleration and braking aren't that different, the base price is lower, and the fuel economy is better, fleet owners will likely see this as an appealing purchase. While these vans aren't rated by the EPA, we could see owners getting near 20 mpg around town with the four.

This is a comfortable van to spend long stretches of time in, too: the seats feel like they are designed for long-haul use and the seating position for the driver is quite good. New features in the interior include a new navigation system, Bluetooth, and aux input—all standard. A rearview camera is optional.

But it isn't all perfection in this van, and there are some places where competitors could find some advantages of their own. There aren't enough storage areas in the front. There are some shallow shelves above the sunvisors, but the lack of a center console means the driver doesn't have a convenient spot where he or she can hide a laptop without risking it sliding back (and maybe hit the driver in the head) when the vehicle accelerates. The other big shortcoming: price. This is the Mercedes-Benz of vans, and it has the Mercedes-Benz of prices. The four-cylinder van we drove was more than $53,000, and the V-6-powered 2500 cost nearly $60,000 as tested. But for those who can afford it, the new changes will be a pleasant surprise.

In Germany, autobahn lane discipline doesn’t mean staying in one lane all the time but rather moving to the right when you are finished passing. But in recent years, adherence to this lane discipline has declined. Fast drivers frequently need to slam on their brakes as slow drivers pull out due to blissful ignorance or a determination to teach a lesson in eco-friendly, low-velocity motoring. However, chances you’ll be taught such an unwelcome lesson are greatly diminished when piloting a vehicle of substantial size and heft. Imagine, if you will, a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter barreling down the left lane of the autobahn at 100 mph. That’s some three tons of metal approaching rapidly in the rearview mirror.

Of course, U.S. customers will be prevented from sharing this experience by virtue of an 82-mph governor setting on all Sprinter models sold here. And a U.S. Mercedes executive confided in us that fleet customers have asked for even lower governor speed settings.

A New Kind of Deliverance

First launched in the European market in 1995, the Sprinter redefined the van segment by virtue of its modern design, carlike performance, and low operating cost. In the U.S., it served as the forerunner of a phalanx of modern space-and-fuel-efficient vans. During the Daimler-Chrysler era, the Sprinter replaced the ancient Dodge Ram Van/Wagon. Today—cost notwithstanding—it easily outclasses the gas-guzzling Ford E-series and GM’s Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana twins. (The existing domestic vans are to be replaced by Sprinter-like, Euro-style vans, perhaps closing the gap.)

The 2014 Sprinter can still be had with its familiar 188-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel but adds a 161-horse, 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel. The V-6 stays with its current five-speed automatic transmission; the smaller engine receives a seven-speed gearbox. No manual transmission is available in the U.S. market. Maximum torque for the V-6 is rated at 325 lb-ft; the four-cylinder engine—well-known from Benz’s passenger-car lineup—makes 265 lb-ft of torque. We drove both versions on German turf and can report that the difference between the four-banger and V-6 is primarily felt at velocities of 80 mph and beyond—speeds unattainable by U.S. customers anyway. Of the pair, the V-6 sounds slightly more sophisticated, but given that the four comes with the wider-ratio transmission with more cog choices, it is the better option for virtually any application.

The Sprinter is a tall-profile vehicle, yet it remains remarkably stable in high-speed corners. The van’s indirect steering doesn’t encourage corner carving anyway, and the standard stability-control nanny system kicks in sufficiently early to prevent mischief or mishaps. To add even more high-speed stability, Mercedes is offering a crosswind-stabilization system that is supposed to keep the slab-sided van in its lane during sudden gusts of wind. We felt the system kick in forcefully in a simulated storm environment, but it didn’t always manage to keep the van reliably on its path. Some fine-tuning is in order, but the effort is praiseworthy. By the time the system reaches the U.S. market for the 2015 model year, the flaws should be ironed out. The blind-spot and lane-departure systems in the Sprinter van we tested, however, performed impeccably.

Totally Industrial

The Sprinter serves as the basis for several conversion vehicles, and its commercial-vehicle focus is underscored by the ultratall seating position and somewhat industrial appearance of the interior, slightly upgraded for 2014. But these are characteristics the Sprinter shares with its direct competitors, the Fiat-based Ram ProMaster and the E-series–replacing the Ford Transit. The Sprinter, we think, is nicer.

The 2014 model year is also distinguished from the previous year’s models by its restyled headlights, grille, and front fascia. Large headlights mirror the grille’s contour and thus resemble those of the Mercedes CLA and 2014 S-class. The front bumper loses its “smiley face” look for a tougher appearance, which Mercedes van chief Volker Mornhinweg calls “AMG-like.” He should know, as he headed Daimler’s performance brand in the past. If the speed governor on the Sprinter were lifted, the meaner appearance could actually be put to good use promoting lane discipline.

The 2014 Sprinter will be sold from 2014 onward as 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty models; two wheelbases will be offered, as well as standard and high-roof versions. Prices for the V-6 will begin close to the current $36,290; the four-cylinder model will be less expensive by several thousand dollars.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review (2013-2018)

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is the de facto king of large vans - and has been since it was originally launched back in 1995. This version, on sale since 2013, is a highly-evolved development of the second-generation model, first introduced in 2006.

It will be replaced by a new, third-generation Mercedes Sprinter in June 2018.

Breaking sales records right up to the end of its life

Despite its imminent replacement, this model of Sprinter achieved record sales in 2017 - which tells you everything you need to know about how well-regarded this large van legend really is.

Billed as 'pioneer of the road', the Sprinter has always brought safety innovation in addition to being hugely versatile, good to drive and immensely reliable - typically placing first in the UK industry leading FN50 Van Reliability Survey.

Mercedes Sprinter rivals

For all that the Sprinter is so impressive, rivals have been getting closer and closer to its all-round accomplishments as this model has aged.

Up until 2017, you could also buy a Volkswagen Crafter that was essentially the same van at a slightly lower cost.

Now the all-new VW Crafter (introduced in 2017) is one of the Sprinter's greatest rivals - offering a particularly accomplished driving experience that is especially comfortable and easy to manage.

Similarly, the latest generation of full-size Ford Transit - launched in 2014 - is a comprehensively appealing all-rounder that complements its less premium image with a lower price tag.

None of the above are the best choice if maximum payload is your major concern, however. For that, look to one of the older large vans from either the Renault Master or Peugeot Boxer families.

What makes the Mercedes Sprinter such a good van?

The 2013-onwards Sprinter moved the game on; it’s safer, more efficient, sports a revised look and boasts more technology than ever.

Safety is something Mercedes is famous for, and this Sprinter benefits from a raft of systems that aim to keep both occupants and pedestrians out of trouble.

For instance, Crosswind Assist comes as standard. This can detect when a gust of wind pummels into the side of the van and compensates for it, meaning you stay driving in the direction you intend.

Mercedes Sprinter engines and variants

The Sprinter is available with a range of four- and six-cylinder engines, offering power outputs from 95hp to 190hp.

A large combination of wheelbase lengths and bodystyles, as well as the option of four-wheel drive (in addition to the standard rear-wheel drive) and a huge list of optional extras, means there's likely to be a variant that suits your needs.

Performance is generally excellent, but these are also thirsty engines, and the Sprinter fares poorly in our full list of the most fuel-efficient large vans.

As mentioned above, however, the Sprinter doesn't offer the greatest amount of payload at the maximum 3.5-tonne gross vehicle weight (GVW) legal to drive on a regular car licence.

Mercedes Sprinter - the Parkers Vans verdict

To find out more about this highly sought-after and extremely popular van, read on for the full Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review on Parkers Vans.

But suffice to say, if you've got the budget and aren't hampered by the need to carry enormous amounts of weight, the Sprinter makes an excellent choice. Reliability is second-to-none, build quality and safety are excellent, and few vans are more comfortable over long distances.
