The Mercedes-Benz 2500 Sprinter Van Can Easily Become A Shaggin' Wagon

Review

Step one: rip out the rear seats.

We know you’ve seen transport vans like the Mercedes-Benz 2500 Sprinter from time to time. Actually, they’re becoming more popular in the US and competitors from Ford, Nissan and Ram have already sprouted up. But it’s the 2500 Sprinter that came first, and the latest generation was given a refresh for 2014 and remains unchanged through today. That’s not at all a bad thing, however. The 2500 Sprinter benefits from, first and foremost, Mercedes build quality inside and out.

Add to that its standard 2.1-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder, which is paired to a seven-speed automatic that sends power to the rear wheels. Our tester Sprinter also came equipped with an extra feature we think is essential, the high roof, costing an extra $2,495. Heck, a six-footer can stand up in this bad boy.

Totally worth it, especially for those buyers who plan a few modifications. Ah yes, mods. The Sprinter was born for this. Just think of all of the possibilities. Rip out the three rows of rear seats, for example, replace them with a couch, La-Z-Boy chair or two and, because why the hell not, a Jacuzzi. With enough money, anything can be done. But perhaps your experience with the Mercedes 2500 Sprinter van involved a trip from the airport to a hotel, or vice versa. They’re great at transporting lots of people, too. Special thanks to Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento for letting us film the van.
