The 2019 Sprinter Passenger Van is a full-size van from Mercedes-Benz. The Sprinter line was completely redesigned for the 2019 model year and is available as a Cargo Van or Crew Van, both of which focus less on moving people than the Passenger Van.
The Passenger van is available in either a 12-passenger 144-inch wheelbase or 15-passenger 170-inch wheelbase setup. There are three available powertrains: a four-cylinder gas engine, a six-cylinder diesel, or a six-cylinder diesel with 4x4.
Payload weight capacity is determined by the van’s class: up to 2,941 pounds for the 1500 model and up to 3,441 pounds for the 2500 model.
Mercedes-Benz updated the 2019 Sprinter’s safety equipment as well. The Passenger Van has active braking assist and other advanced features and can be upgraded with a power sliding door, electric-folding step, and a dual-zone climate system that effectively heats and cools the entire cabin.
The Sprinter Passenger Van competes with the Chevrolet Express, Ford Transit, and Ram ProMaster. The van is on sale now and has a starting price of $42,990.
