Cargo and passenger vans are generally unattractive slabs of metal, but the trend is changing to more interesting designs. The Sprinter is one of these prettier vans, and is unmistakable as anything but a Merc, with an imposing grille, sharp horizontal headlights with available DRLs, and elongated but attractive taillights. 16-inch wheels are fitted to each model across the range, and nicer 16-inch alloys are available. The 2500 gets single rear wheels, the 3500 can be had with Super Single rear or dual rear wheels, and the 4500 gets duals only.
The Mercedes Sprinter Crew Van is available with two roof heights, with each low-roof model having a different overall height of between 96 and 100 inches, and the high-roof variants between 107.5 and 111 inches. Width including side mirrors is 95.5 inches for the 3500XD and 4500 models, while 2500 and 3500 models are 92.3 inches. Length and wheelbase varies, however, with regular-length models measuring 233.5 inches with a wheelbase of 144 inches. Extended-length variants are 274.3 inches with a wheelbase of 170 inches. Curb weights are just as varied, measuring between 4,982 and 6,526 pounds.

Less expensive premium options comprise ten shades, including Calcite Yellow and Graphite Grey for $697.
