The big van will get its first major update in over a decade.
What do we know about the new van? Quite a bit actually, but to arrest all fears, it will still be the tall, cavernous machine the world knows and loves. As such, don’t expect a huge departure from the norm when it comes to exterior styling, though the recent teaser video shows a front end that seems a bit chunkier, with headlights that seem a bit thinner and more streamlined. Spy photos support this, and we think there’s a bold new grille behind the camo coverings that incorporates the latest Mercedes-Benz styling cues.
We’ve also already seen the interior – at least up front – revealing an analog gauge cluster for the driver. There’s no glass cockpit here, but a wide infotainment screen built into the center of the dash compliments a three-spoke steering wheel filled with controls. As a result, the interior takes on something of a minimalist appearance while still offering nice touches of luxury. That doesn’t mean it won’t be without functionality for workers and companies – Mercedes will offer the new Pro Connect Services for the Sprinter, giving it a major boost in technology by keeping drivers and fleet managers connected through the Internet.
