About Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Passenger

In the U.S., Mercedes-Benz is best known for it luxury sedans, but worldwide the company’s work trucks and vans earn equal praise. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans are a complete line of work trucks and passenger vans that have the capacity and muscles to handle just about any big job. So versatile is the Sprinter that it is now being used for RV conversions, emergency medical vehicles and even utility trucks. With a choice of two diesel engines, two wheelbases, three roof heights and available 4-wheel drive (4WD), Mercedes-Benz’s 2017 Sprinter van has a leg up on competitors like the Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster and Nissan NV. A new Sprinter Worker van provides an even lower entry price without sacrificing the Sprinter’s most important attributes.

Cons: "substantially lower mpg at high speed"

"I have the 4x4, 3 liter engine, 144 base, low roof passenger van. we use it for vacations only. at 26,000 miles the average mpg is 19.3. the van is a little noisier than an SUV but nothing unexpected for a commercial 12 seat vehicle. it is functioning perfectly with only routine maintenance, the air filter and oil change at 20,000 miles. it is not cheap, dealer charges 350, but without voiding the factory warranty, you can buy the oil change kit from the dealer for 175 and do it yourself in 15 minutes as everything is very accessible. the van is much more stable than it looks but you can feel the lateral wind stronger than in an SUV. the engine is powerful, a lot of torque even at 80 miles per hour. on cruise control it runs uphill on highway almost without increasing the engine rpm. in this aspect it is better than all our other vehicles (Toyota Highlander, Honda CRV and BMW 525 xi). I would trade some of that extra power for a little better mpg at high speed as we drive it day or night, summer or winter, camping in isolated areas where autonomy is of concern. the mpg variates greatly with speed, at 60 miles/hour mpg is 22 or better, at 80 miles/hour mpg 17.4. it is somehow fun and easy to drive having the huge windshield and the very high driving position. I sometimes use it even in the city as my commuting vehicle. the 4x4 mode is very capable but a little tricky, in order to connect it you have to be on horizontal ground, stationary or moving at less than 3-4 miles per hour. it only takes 2 seconds to switch but you have to do it before you start climbing. if you did not anticipate correctly the difficulty of the road ahead and you are already driving uphill, you can not switch to 4x4 unless you find a flat portion. the sales person advised me to use only genuine Mercedes diesel exhaust fluid in order to avoid future NOX sensor problems and sometimes drive it at higher speed to allow sensor auto-cleaning. the DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) is 12 for a bottle that lasts approx. 2000 miles. in my recent vacation in Europe I saw several Sprinters used as shuttle buses in suburban areas, running well at over 600,000 miles (1 million kilometers). with correct maintenance I hope ours will last the same :-)"
