If you’re in the market for an easy-to-drive cargo van that comes with a prestigious nameplate, consider a 2016 pre-owned Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
Once you get situated behind the wheel, you’ll notice that the comfortable driving position provides you with a commanding view of your surroundings, which comes in handy when you’re maneuvering a van of this size. Speaking of handling, the Sprinter is nimbler than it looks and can navigate congested streets and highway traffic with equal grace.
But what sets this van apart from the pack is its 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V6. This engine, which cranks out a healthy 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, accelerates like a champ, even when you’ve got a heavy load in back. The Sprinter can use this brute strength to tow up to 7,500 pounds worth of cargo as well.
It’s also the only commercial van to offer four-wheel drive. According to KBB.com, the 4WD makes a huge difference when traversing rough-terrain. Whether you’re headed to a remote work site or tackling slick roads, this Mercedes-Benz delivers excellent traction.
Take a used 2016 Sprinter for a test drive at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today. If it’s not the ideal commercial vehicle for you, check out our complete cargo van inventory online.
