The Sprinter model from Mercedes is a very popular and expensive van, but considering the quality that offers it is well deserved. Besides fantastic sedans, great hatchbacks and SUVs, the Company is also working on the next generation 2018 Mercedes Sprinter van. At this moment, we have some spy photos from the early testing. Van segment is very important, and fortunately, people from Mercedes know that.
2018 Mercedes Sprinter Redesign
We’ve got some spy shots from the first testing of Mercedes Sprinter 2018 van. Currently, the company working on two types of van, commercial van and a people carrier(see photos). Of course, when Mercedes satisfy themselves, we can expect redesigned Chassis Cab and Dropside as well. According to some reliable rumors, and also to heavy camo at the front side, we can probably expect different front fascia compared to the current model. The camo is only at the front side, everything else looks pretty much the same. However, this model is still in the early stage of development, so this info isn’t so certain. Compared to the current model, this one will feature sharper and smaller headlights. When it comes to the grille, we can expect changes here. According to reliable rumors, a single-bar grille like in the C-Class Coupe is a possible variant.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2018 Interior
The 2018 Mercedes Sprinter cabin will most likely receive more changes. However, the photos are unavailable at this moment. Those changes will be most likely changes in the high-tech department. According to some information that is quite reliable, the entire dashboard of this model is wrapped in the camo. What does that mean? That probably means that we can expect some changes in the layout and maybe even some updated materials. So many auto experts say that we can expect updates in the safety department. However, everything is in the fog right now, and we don’t have a list of the newly features. Most likely, new Mercedes Sprinter 2018 will feature more car like the dash. Also, according to Mercedes, we can expect updates in the navigations system and in the infotainment system.
Engine and Performance
Beneath the hood, we can expect some changes as well, but not in engine sizes. According to previous reports, we can expect the introduction of the electric powertrain and autonomous driving technology. However, this isn’t confirmed yet. What is certain is that we can anticipate new driver assistance systems, and also some revisions in the engines. However, at this moment we only know that the changes in the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter engines will be related to fuel consumption. The Mercedes will do everything in order to improve fuel economy.
Price and Release date
The release date of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will be most likely this year at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show. When it comes to prices, Mercedes didn’t announce that information.
