Offered in a variety of passenger-transporting, cargo and chassis cab models, the Freightliner Sprinter provides up to 600 cubic feet of space and has a cargo area that measures as high as seven feet from floor to ceiling. This makes it the only vehicle in its class with enough headroom for virtually anyone. All cargo models of the CUV make loading wide objects easy through a side door opening that measures 72 inches high by 54 inches wide.
Among the 25 safety features are:
• Adaptive ESP (Standard)-Provides real-time vehicle stability control by taking payload into consideration.
• Acceleration Skid Control (Standard)-Prevents wheelspin when accelerating from rest or stop position, resulting in easier, skid-free starting on slippery surfaces.
ParkSense® System-Helps detect stationary objects at low speeds in forward or reverse. In addition to audible warnings, visual warnings for front sensors are displayed in the instrument panel and on rearview mirrors.
Advanced Multistage Air Bag System (Standard)-Offering enhanced protection, this system is designed to deploy based on the severity of impact.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System-Monitors tire pressure, alerting the driver to low air pressure conditions of any tire with an amber indicator in the instrument cluster.
Powered and designed by Mercedes-Benz, the Freightliner Sprinter also has features that help owners get in and out of tight spaces easily and fill up less frequently. Features such as the lowest side-door step-in height and the highest interior ceiling help in productivity and also have a positive effect on safety by helping to prevent slips, falls and bumps.
Many feel that this CUV will give a big hand to small-businesses-such as plumbing companies, delivery services and hotel shuttles-that rely on commercial vehicles for their livelihood.
