The Mercedes Sprinter is a large van able to haul cargo up to 3,000 pounds or up to 12 passengers. They are available with 161 horsepower 2.1-liter turbo-diesel engines and 188 horsepower 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engines. The latter configuration is available with a five-speed automatic transmission with rear and four-wheel drive. Sprinters have many safety features like lane departure warnings, crosswind stabilization and collision prevention. A wide variety of body styles are available.

Because of their versatility, Mercedes Sprinters work as both van conversions for the disabled and as recreational vehicles. They are also often converted to limousines, business vans and family vans, most famously by the large Gosselin family from TLC's reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
