With the current generation of 2018 Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 being launched in 2006, the German manufacturer is taking a look at replacing it using an all-new model by the end of 2017 or premature 2018.
The next generation 2018 Mercedes sprinter 4×4 is going to be built at Dusseldorf, however, the capacity will soon be far higher because the production of the Volkswagen Crafter is being moved to a new mill in Poland. Previously, the two trucks shared exactly the exact same chassis and product lineup, even though they comprised different motors.
Over three million Sprinters are produced since 1995, which makes it among those best-selling vans of ever (see best-selling panel vans of all time. The current generation was face lifted in 20-1, also continues to market well thanks to the strong quality, residual values, specification and after sales support.
Mercedes Benz is now building a brand-new Mercedes Benz Sprinter mill in South Carolina, as the existing mill in North America ( also in sc) is currently running at full capacity. Growth in demand on the last handful of years has forced the German manufacturing company to import vehicles from Dusseldorf, which can be susceptible to high duties and transport costs.
Thus far, Mercedes Benz has revealed no information about the new product. Is likely that the Sprinter’s current 2.1-litre engine will remain because it already complies with the Euro-6 emission standard, even though power ratings are expected to be upgraded and fuel economy improved further.
Among the regions that will plainly need addressing may be the payload. Considering that this really is now an ever more crucial issue, is likely that the engineers at Mercedes Benz will follow in the footsteps of Iveco, by lessening the kerb weight as a way to raise the payload.
Pricing and Release Date
Prices are expected to increase marginally from the current figures of between25,698 and 67,110 plus VAT. Parkers are hoping to have to have the complete review published by the third quarter of 2017, with the first models arriving in Mercedes Benz Commercial Vehicles dealerships by the fourth quarter of 2017 or the first quarter of 2018.
