Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis

The best Sprinter of all time.  The Sprinter is more than a vehicle, it’s a true partner you can always
rely on to support you all the way when there’s a job to be done. 

The latest generation of the Sprinter lives up to this impressive reputation. It is the result of the process of continuous development with which we ensure that the Sprinter always offers the best in terms of reliability, quality, safety, flexibility, economy, sustainability and service. With its forward-looking design it once again asserts its pioneering character - even more advanced, even more flexible, even safer and even more efficient. Mercedes-Benz Vans. Born to run.

Best in its class – with the largest range of variants.

The Sprinter is open for everything that makes your everyday work easier. Whatever your transport requirements, your Sprinter makes it possible. The single and dual cab chassis can seat up to 3 and 7 people respectively. Available in two wheelbases, four weight variants from 3.5t to 5.0t, and two engine variants, the Sprinter is the perfect transport solution.

The list of equipment below* makes loading and unloading your Sprinter even safer, even more efficient and even more convenient.

  • Factory tray with folding step and lockable toolbox 
  • Ladder rack integration with factory tray
  • Heavy duty stabilising package for high bodies 
  • Wide mirrors

* Certain items available as optional equipment.

 

Your safety is our highest priority.

The most important standard features of your Sprinter are directed towards your safety. Its innovative ADAPTIVE ESP® dynamic handling control system takes account of the load status to improve directional stability and traction in critical situations. ADAPTIVE ESP® is complemented by a number of functions, two particularly important examples being Disc Wipe* and Electronic Brake Prefill^.

The COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST available in the optional Driving Assistance Package warns and supports the braking driver with BAS PRO, to make sure that the vehicle comes to a halt safely.

* In the event of rain, this system regularly removes the film of water from the brake discs, thereby helping to reduce the stopping distance. 
^ Reduces the reaction time in the event of braking and therefore reduces the stopping distance too.

Outstanding technology– for the best Sprinter of all time.

High quality standards and solid resale values contribute to the overall cost-effectiveness of the Sprinter, as do its highly sophisticated engines. When equipped with the advanced OM 651 4 cylinder CDI diesel engine, or the outstandingly capable OM 642 V6 CDI diesel engine, the Sprinter sets standards in terms of economic efficiency and future-compatibility.

Fuel consumption can be further reduced with the ECO Start/Stop system and provides an intelligent solution to engine idling. What’s more, the exhaust gas after-treatment also reduces emissions of pollutants such as nitrogen oxide. All Sprinter models come equipped with BlueEFFICIENCY technology which is energy efficient and fully optimised for lowering emissions.

Whichever engine you choose, delivering power on the road as effectively as possible is taken care of by the standard ECO Gear 6-speed manual transmission. The ECO Gear 6-speed manual transmission has a greater transmission spread, broader overall gear ratios and corresponding reduction in engine speed. Or, if you prefer, the 7G-TRONIC

7-speed automatic transmission is also available. 

A cab chassis that drives like a car.

With the optional 7-speed or 5-speed automatic transmission*, the Sprinter offers the smooth running characteristics and ride comfort of a passenger car. Even when confronted with heavy traffic, the Sprinter’s dynamic handling makes city driving easy and enjoyable. And to make your trip even more comfortable there is the option of the fully integrated Becker® MAP PILOT navigation system.

You can choose from a range of optional seat configurations listed below to configure the Sprinter to meet your specific requirements.

  • Comfort Seat Pack with armrests
  • Suspension Seat Pack with armrests
  • Passenger bench seat^
  • Comfort Seat Pack with swivel function

* 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission is standard on all V6 models and 5-speed automatic is optional on 4 cylinder models.
^ Optional for all Dual Cab Chassis models. Standard on all Single Cab Chassis models. 

Fit more in. Get more out.

Even the best traditions need an update. Enter the dual cab chassis. With the ability to carry up to three* up front and four in the rear section of the cabin, it’s big enough to take the whole work crew on the road.

The dual cab chassis offers enhanced levels of practicality. The two rear side doors have inside mounted hinges and retainers. Both doors also feature hinged windows. Passengers on the four seater bench are protected by three-point inertia reel belts and height adjustable head restraints. Underneath the rear seat, you’ll find substantial storage space. The top area of the instrument panel forms a three-part storage surface. The left and right-hand segments in front of the driver and co-driver are ideal for storing small items and incorporate cupholders.

The storage area on the centre console is designed to hold A4 documents or a clipboard. There are two wheelbase sizes – medium wheelbase and long wheelbase. As with the single cab chassis, a high quality, factory fitted aluminium tray with built-in tool box is available as an option.

Setting new standards for safety.

The Sprinter has no need to hide behind any passenger car when it comes to safety thanks to its Driving Assistance Package – unique in the cab chassis segment. Alongside the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST the Lane Keeping Assist is a further highlight of the optional Driving Assistance Package. If this system detects that the vehicle is leaving its lane unintentionally, this is drawn to the attention of the driver so that they can undertake a path correction. You can see the other components of the optionally available Driving Assistance Package in the table below.

Your Sprinter is delivered as standard with a range of safety features, such as a driver airbag and front passenger airbag, three-point seat belts with belt tensioners and belt-force limiters for the driver and co-driver (where a single co-driver’s seat is fitted), head restraints with 2-way adjustment, load securing rings, a hydraulic braking system, adaptive brake lights and heated exterior mirrors with integrated additional wide angle mirrors. In addition to all this you can choose from a broad spectrum of further equipment options for even more safety.

Incomparable. Functionality has never been more comfortable.

The new generation telematics, the multifunction steering wheel with chrome highlights, the shift/selector lever and the 'Tunja black' fleeced lined seat cover fabric are complemented by many other interior appointments and equipment items which increase driving comfort and enhance the overall efficiency of the working environment in your Sprinter. The spacious interior with its high quality ergonomic design meets the highest standards of functionality, quality and comfort. A large number of practical stowage facilities, such as those above the windscreen which are fitted as standard, offer plenty of storage space and keep the cab tidy.

Takes on tough tasks with comfort and ease.

For businesses that need easy access and quick loading capability, the single cab chassis has been engineered to take on tough tasks. Yet, inside the cabin, detail has been a priority, making the task of driving as comfortable as possible.

Because the cabin can also be your office, we’ve given careful consideration to those practical details. Cup holders, pen holders, clipboard holders, under seat storage compartments – there’s a spot for all of the items you might need.

The well designed instrument panel and controls are all part of the Sprinter design. From electronic climate control to Bluetooth® media streaming, comfort on the road is always a priority. Both the single cab chassis and dual cab chassis models, have a Mercedes-Benz factory tray available optionally.

Load securing rings are integrated into the floor at the side in the metal rails. The single piece aluminium side boards and tailboard have a corrosion resistant anodised finish and are fitted with high quality plastic latches. The tailboard is fitted with a retaining cable and a flush folding step. An optional ladder rack behind the cab can be used for carrying long objects such as ladders and metal bars. The extended posts help prevent shifting. There is also a built-in tool box on both sides under the tray for storing work tools and items that need quick and easy access. 

The clear favourite, off the road too.

There are many routes to business success – and not all of them take the form of paved roads.
With the optionally engageable all-wheel drive*, featuring increased traction, improved driving stability and latest generation ADAPTIVE ESP,® your Sprinter can also overcome the challenges presented by adverse weather and road conditions. With the 4ETS (Electronic Traction System), which automatically brakes the spinning wheels individually, a higher drive torque for sufficient tyre traction is produced.

In addition to its all-wheel drive capability, the Sprinter is available with the following equipment as standard to make off-road use even safer and more flexible.

Turning body solutions into reality.

The Sprinter chassis with a standard frame succeeds in meeting the most diverse of body and application requirements. Behind four application-related suspension configurations lie four stabilisation stages which are achieved through a specific combination of suspension components such as anti-roll bars, shock absorbers and reinforced springs. What they all have in common is the ultra-modern chassis technology.

By way of example: the smooth power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and the small turning circle make manoeuvring much easier for you. With the robust and durable standard frame the Sprinter chassis offers bodybuilders a sound basis for bearing loads, anchoring points and connections.
