2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van Review: The Showy Workhorse

When a premium automotive brand designs a utility vehicle, combining its prime performance and masterful construction qualities with profitable versatility and practicality, you get the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van. Now in its third generation, the premium 3-door cargo van offers robust yet economical performance from three engine options - a 2.0-liter turbo-four (in gas or diesel) and a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6, which yields 188 horsepower. Outputs are ceded to a rear-wheel drive setup as standard, though the diesel can be equipped with a 4x4 drivetrain. A 9-speed automatic transmission is swapped out for a 7-speed auto with the diesel as well. Like any of the brand's cars, the Sprinter Cargo Van is a first-rate vehicle offering far more than the typical workhorse in the segment, including the all-popular Ford Transit. And while you will have to pay a high price for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van, it will quickly show you its worth it.

Engine and Transmission

A with the rest of the Sprinter range, the Sprinter Cargo Van is also offered with three different powertrains. The standard 2.0-liter inline-4 engine and the V6 turbo diesel both have 188 hp, despite using different fuel, but torque differs at 258 lb-ft and 325 lb-ft, respectively. There is also a diesel-powered four-cylinder that develops 161 hp and 325 lb-ft. Both four-cylinders are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and are restricted to RWD. The 3.0-liter V6 comes paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission and can be set up to power a 4x4 system in place of the standard RWD.

Verdict: ๐ŸIs the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van a good car?

It may be one of the more expensive utility vans on the market, but the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van is a proficient and upscale workhorse that can be upfitted to meet just about any requirement. Like the most popular van in the USA, the Ford Transit, the Sprinter Cargo Van is also highly versatile, practical, and capable with its various powertrain and body configurations. Where the Mercedes steps ahead, however, is in the contemporary and surprisingly comfortable cabin it presents to the driver and its passenger, and in the capability it attains at the higher end of the trim line. It is, in fact, a class-leader when it comes to its payload capacity while also being capable of a maximum towing capacity of around 7,000 pounds, depending on the powertrain chosen. It's also one of the most comprehensively outfitted vans in terms of driver-assist and safety features, which means you can expect a top-notch safety rating, despite the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter having not undergone review by either the NHTSA or IIHS. All in all, the 2020 Sprinter Cargo Van is a great choice for someone that needs a premium-looking, highly accommodating, and very capable workhorse that boasts the renown and long-term reliability of its brand name.

๐Ÿš—What Sprinter Cargo Van Model Should I Buy?

The Sprinter Cargo Van you decide on will inevitably be the one that best caters to your personal and/or business needs, which in this case, are perhaps one and the same. Working up the model lineup, you get the 1500, 2500, 3500, 3500XD, and the 4500 - we'd steer clear of the 1500 as, while it is the most affordable option, it can't equip the V6 and has limited customizability, meaning it can also only handle the bare minimum. The 2500 and 3500 can take on many more tasks, especially with the diesel V6 optioned in, and they offer a lot more customizability. The 3500XD and 4500 come standard with the turbo diesel V6 and dual rear wheels, which make them the most capable, though also the most expensive. Regardless of which Sprinter Cargo Van from this year you go for, the turbo diesel V6 is a must.
