The Sprinter Wagon is a commercial vehicle produced by Daimler that is the market leader in its segment in Europe and is now sold in the U.S. as the Dodge Sprinter Wagon. Daimler describes the Sprinter as a vehicle that sets a new standard in the commercial vehicle market with a unique combination of fuel efficiency and functional interior design. Redesigned for 2007, the new Sprinter features a longer, wider, taller body with more passenger or cargo space. Two wheelbases are offered—144 inches or 170 inches.

When equipped with the 3.0-liter turbo diesel, the 2008 Dodge Sprinter is surprisingly capable. While acceleration is not lightning fast, it is strong and steady. The quiet and smooth diesel engine is fuel-efficient and its generous torque keeps the vehicle from getting bogged down, even when loaded with passengers or cargo. The Sprinter's steering is heavily weighted, but not to the point of being laborious. Despite its long chassis, the Sprinter possesses a tight turning radius and responds quickly to emergency maneuvers. The ride is also pleasant and the interior cabin exhibits few rattles, even over rough pavement.

The Sprinter Wagon was redesigned for 2007 and the 2008 Dodge Sprinter Van receives minor updates including standard 12-passenger seating with a new emergency exit window. An electronic sliding door is available as an option.

According to KBB Editors'
Dodge took a big risk shelving its traditional full-size van in favor of a European-inspired platform, but it appears American business has embraced the result. The Sprinter's innovative cargo area, fuel-efficient diesel and gasoline engines and numerous configurations make it the new darling of the delivery and transportation sector. The boxy Sprinter silhouette has even begun showing up in the lucrative RV arena. Fresh from a complete makeover last year, the 2008 Dodge Sprinter may be the best result from the now-terminated marriage between Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler.

If you operate a moving or delivery service, you'll love the Sprinter's huge cargo hold, efficient diesel engine and flexible configuration. If you're the one doing the delivering, you'll appreciate the tall roof, which reduces the need to stoop or bend when loading and unloading cargo.

Exterior

While the 2008 Dodge Sprinter isn't likely to win any beauty pageants, there is real attractiveness in its efficient design. The tall windshield and long door glass provide the driver excellent visibility, while the short pointed nose improves aerodynamics as well as ease of parking. Big side mirrors include separate convex mirrors to expose objects hidden in the driver's blind spots. A choice of three different roof heights (65, 76 or 84 inches) is augmented by two wheelbases and three different overall lengths, and other features include a rear-door opening of 270 degrees and a sliding side-door loading width of 51 inches.

Interior

Up to 12 occupants fit inside a passenger-carrying Sprinter. Two people sit up front and as many as three more rows of seats can be installed. A standard, removable four-seat rear bench is new for cargo vans. For 2008, all models can have swivel bucket seats in front. Sprinters have a flat cargo floor and tapered rear wheel housings. Cargo volume is 127 cubic feet, though overall cargo capacity can swell to 600 cubic feet in some models. Air conditioning is standard. Other features include a tilting and height-adjustable steering wheel, a CD player and power windows and locks.

Under the Hood

Two new engines were introduced for 2007: a 154-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 diesel and a 254-hp, 3.5-liter gasoline V-6.

Safety

All-disc antilock brakes are standard, as is an electronic stability system. The system adjusts for how the Sprinter is loaded and adjusts its inputs to compensate. Side-impact and side curtain airbags are also available.
