Mercedes-Benz Vans announced the introduction of a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder diesel engine for the Sprinter van, arriving in dealerships in early spring of 2021.
This advanced powertrain produces 161 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, it offers customers a highly compelling option that satisfies countless industry needs, as well as a wide-range of transportation requirements.
Similar to the 3.0 litre 6-cylinder diesel engine, the 2.0 litre 4-cylinder diesel engine will be offered on all body types: Cargo, Crew, Passenger, and Cab Chassis variants.
The 4-cylinder diesel engine can be combined with a rear-wheel drive configuration with various wheelbase options, including the 144″ wheelbase standard roof or the 170″ wheelbase and 170″ extended wheelbase high roof offering.
With low fuel consumption, high torque, and high elasticity at low speeds, the 4-cylinder diesel variant offers additional advantages to an already attractive product offering. The 4-cylinder diesel engine joins the 6-cylinder diesel and the 4-cylinder gasoline engine, rounding out the comprehensive Sprinter engine lineup for a total of three different powertrain options.
Interior and exterior features
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter comes equipped with an array of standard features; including Keyless Start, Multifunctional steering wheel, Active Break Assist, Cruise Control as well as heated and power-adjustable side mirrors.
These features ensure each van is equipped with the class-leading technology, safety and reliability expected from Mercedes-Benz Vans.
The 2021 Sprinter is equipped with a range of optional safety and assistance systems such as Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, and Blind Spot Assist, which, until recently, were exclusive to Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.
