The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Ecto-Z is Ready for Its Close-Up

If you are familiar with the Ghostbuster franchise, you’ll likely recognize the iconic 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance that the team of ghost catchers drives around. After all, it’s been a mainstay in the blockbuster films since 1984. But now, the crew is getting a new edition to help catch New York City’s specters, and it is none other than a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van.

What are the Names of Mercedes-Benz Vans?

Here in the United States, the Mercedes-Benz van is known as the Sprinter. It comes in a range of configurations and has quickly gained popularity in #VanLife culture. And for good reason: it offers the luxury you would expect from a German car manufacturer and retains legitimate capability. Plus, there are plenty of upfitters who customize these vehicles for various uses.

In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, that use is anything but typical. With a license plate reading “Ecto-Z,” the star Sprinter is used to carry the Ghostbusters’ gear, including the crew’s proton packs. And don’t worry, Ecto-1 isn’t going anywhere.

Now, while our team at Ray Catena Edison loves all things Mercedes-Benz, it’s hard to ignore the curb appeal of an old-school Cadillac. Especially one decked out in emergency lights and Ghostbuster livery. Still, the Sprinter van does feature a similar vibe with its black paint job and Ghostbusters logos.

One of our favorite parts about this Mercedes-Benz van is that it utilizes steel wheels, adding to its quirky look. And as the Ghostbusters battle the impending ice age promised to be unleashed, they are sure to appreciate that this vehicle comes with heated seats.
