For what vans are really used for, these are genuinely good vans. These and the GM twins are pretty much top-of-the-line. Econolines are there for the hell of it.

these things seem so much more top heavy compared to the savannas....it's prolly a great cargo van, i know a few of our suppliers use them, ....

is it safety required, but what's up w/ the slopping down outside to inside windows in the back? (the bottom of the window, like the enclave has)

From what I can see it's a diffinate improvement over the old one. That rear door design is prettyu neat looking. Hopefully this time around it will get a more powerful diesel.

Isn't the R class the Mercedes of vans? :AH-HA_wink:

No, no, I'm wrong... Mercedes doesn't have a van of any sort! :rolleyes:

Very nice. Is it still diesel powered? The current Sprinter gets excellent gas mileage.

I hear the sprinter gets mid 20's, but that's cuz its a diesel.

sprinters are great commercial vans.

They really are great vans. For local road use they beat GM's vans, on the highway, GM's vans are better. I also like the fact that MB has made some styling changes that make the new one look less like a work truck.

Demand must be good because aside from the Viper and a few high-end MB models, Sprinter is about the only DCAG vehicle not in the employee purchase plan.

They have sold so far above expectations that the parts distribution system is wholly inadequate.

There are several Sprinters around here that have the M-B grille and badging...also the Freightliner ones.
