2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: Is it Worth the Hype?


Mercedes-Benz is known for its unwavering ability to amaze auto enthusiasts, with its vehicles being common buzzwords in automotive communities. In 2001, the German carmaker once again made it to the headlines of US auto tabloids with the launch of “Sprinter” – a light commercial vehicle, available as a van, minivan, chassis cab, and pickup truck. While the US auto market already had a number of mature options in the segment, such as the much-celebrated Volkswagen Crafter, and America’s own Ford Windstar; the Sprinter managed to engage more than a few heads, which is validated by their incessant demand in online Mercedes-Benz auctions. Continuing on the subject, we look at the all-new variants of the 2019 Sprinter, to find out whether it is worth the hype. Read on.


The first impressive thing about the 2019 Sprinter is the number of its variants that include Cargo Van, Crew Van, Cab Chassis, and Passenger Van, available in two engine options – a 2.0L 4-Cylinder Turbo Gasoline engine (9-speed transmission) or 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel engine (7-speed transmission). So, no matter the need, Mercedes seems to have a solution for you.


Mercedes-Benz is known for paying attention to even the smallest needs of potential buyers, but with the 2019 Sprinter, they have taken the concern to a new level. The company is offering comprehensive customization options for different services, through an opt in product called “Master Solution” that takes care of all your customization needs.


The 2019 Sprinter isn’t just flashier on the outside, it has a whole world of transformation going for it on the inside. The van comes with much advanced technology than its predecessor, with the features including Active Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, 360° Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, an all-new infotainment system with a 7” or 10.3” touchscreen display and Mercedes PRO Connect.

Drive Quality

The Sprinter is available in rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive, the last option being another distinction. As far as capabilities are concerned, the 2019 Sprinter has a towing capacity of 7700 pounds, can haul more than 6600 pounds, and when it comes to using it as a passenger wagon, you can easily accommodate up to 19 people.

The Verdict

While the attributes we have highlighted represent just the tip of the iceberg as far as the desirable attributes of the 2019 Sprinter are concerned, they are enough to validate that the exceptionally modular van is a highly recommendable vehicle. If you too wish to own the Sprinter but are held down by your budget, participate in the Mercedes-Benz auto auction online held at SalvageBid.
