The current generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has been in production since 2006. Since then, it has only undergone a minor facelift back in 2014. Today, it continues to be a stable workhorse for most countries especially for fleet customers. Others, on the other hand, have converted it into a mobile home. However, the German automaker will be debuting an all-new model soon, specifically this coming February 6.
What is expected from the all new Sprinter van is that it will continue to be tall like it's predecessor. Exterior styling is expected to be almost the same. However, do expect design cues from current models to be integrated into the new model. The teaser video does show it will continue to have sliding doors and have updated LED headlights. Spy photos seen before also show a new grill.
Like the A-Class, Mercedes-Benz has also already revealed the interior of the upcoming Sprinter. In front of the driver sits an analog gauge cluster, instead of a glass cockpit, together with a three-spoke steering wheel. There is also a wide infotainment screen which sits in the center of the dashboard coupled with metallic trim, giving it a touch of luxury.
Technology wise, Mercedes-Benz will be offering their new Pro Connect Services for the upcoming Sprinter in order for drivers and fleet managers to stay connected in almost real-time.
Other details of the all-new Sprinter van such as engine options and power figures are expected to be revealed on February 6 once Mercedes' big van debuts.
