Sprinter truckDaimlerChrysler Vans has unveiled a larger and restyled Sprinter, with new diesel and gasoline engines, more interior space, and lower lifting heights through bigger side and rear doors. Made in Germany by Mercedes-Benz, the 2007-model Sprinter vans come in cargo and bus versions with unibody construction in three heights and lengths, while a cab-chassis variant can mount a variety of bodies. A 154-hp, 3-liter V-6 diesel replaces the current 2.7-liter inline 5-cylinder diesel, while a lower-cost 254-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 gasoline engine is available for the first time. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard with either engine. Three different Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings are offered, including a new higher maximum rating of up to 11,030 pounds for cargo vans and chassis-cabs. Sprinters are available from about 400 Dodge and 45 Freightliner dealers.
