Overview

What's New in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter?

The 2015 Sprinter gets a standard Crosswind Assist technology and available 4-wheel drive with off-road hardware.

Which Sprinter is the Best?

The 4-cylinder diesel may sound inadequate in such a large vehicle, but its torque output is pretty close to that of the V6, and its fuel economy is said to be significantly better. Unless you want 4-wheel drive (which requires the V6), we'd suggest sticking with the base engine and keeping some dollars in your wallet.

Competition

2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vs the competition

2015 Ford Transit -- Directly inspired by the Sprinter's success, the Transit is the one that Mercedes should be worried about. With comparable capabilities and similar styling, along with interesting engine options such as a turbodiesel 5-cylinder and a turbocharged 310-hp gasoline V6, this Ford is a must-drive.

2015 Nissan NV -- Nissan's entry offers less cargo space and only gasoline engines, but it's value-priced and plenty powerful with the optional V8.

2015 RAM ProMaster -- Although the ProMaster's bus-like driving position takes some getting used to (we hope you have long arms), it matches up well with its cavernous interior and optional diesel V6.

Used Ford E-Series -- Ford discontinued the venerable E-Series (formerly known as the Econoline) to make way for the Transit, but if you just want a traditional American workhorse of a van, a used E-Series could save you a lot of money.
