Four Wheel Drive Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Vans

What Sprinter Vans Have Four-Wheel Drive?

Whether you’re looking for an off-road carrier or a commercial hauler, the new Sprinter 4×4 can meet your demands, with a wide range of capabilities and options. 

The latest Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has received several 4×4 upgrades that include a suspension lift, underbody protection, and all-terrain tires. This Sprinter 4×4 is a workhorse that’s as comfortable on the road as it is in fields, forests, and on construction sites.

With better driving dynamics, a high-class and high-tech interior, and a variety of Mercedes’s world-class driver assistance features, you’re in a good place when driving the new Sprinter 4×4.

Does a Sprinter van have 4 wheel drive?

Four-wheel drive is available on the higher trim levels of all Sprinter models. These Sprinter Vans have a selectable all-wheel drive function that turns the efficient two-wheel drive into a powerful four-wheel drive with the simple press of a button. This distributes the drive power of the Sprinter between the front and rear axles at a 35:65 ratio.

Rather than using mechanical rear and front differential locks like many 4×4’s, the Sprinter van’s all-wheel drive uses an Electronic Traction System (4ETS®). This intelligent traction control system uses short impulses to automatically brake any spinning wheels, increasing the drive torque delivered to the wheels with good traction.

What Sprinter has 4×4?

There are 4 models of Sprinter vans available in 3 main configurations: the Sprinter Cargo Van, the Sprinter Passenger Van, and the Sprinter Crew Van. The regular 1500 and 2500 as well as the heavy-duty 3500 and 4500 are available with 144-inch and 170-inch wheelbase as well as a choice of a high or standard roof. Rear-wheel drive is standard across all models and configurations, while four-wheel drive is optional on the 2500 & 3500 models.

Who makes a 4×4 Sprinter van?

Built by Daimler AG of Stuttgart, the Sprinter van has been available with a variety of badges since it was first released. The first-generation North American Sprinter launched in the U.S. in 2001 was originally sold by Freightliner, while the rest of North America could buy them from Mercedes-Benz.

In 2003, Dodge took over, and this light commercial van was available as a Dodge Sprinter or Freightliner Sprinter in the U.S. and Canada. This changed again in 2010, and today, the Sprinter Van is made by Mercedes-Benz.

Are all Mercedes-Benz Sprinters 4WD?

Not all Mercedes Sprinters offer a four-wheel-drive system. However, it is available as an option across all configurations. The 2500 Sprinter Cargo Van offers four-wheel drive for both Standard and High Roof 144-inch wheelbase models, as well as on both the normal and Extended High Roof 170-inch wheelbase models.

For the heavier-duty 3500 Sprinter Cargo Van, you can get a four-wheel drive for the 144-inch wheelbase High Roof model, as well as on the 170-inch wheelbase normal and Extended High Roof models. It is not available for the Super High Roof model, though.

The Sprinter Crew Van offers four-wheel drive for both the Standard and High Roof 144-inch wheelbase models, while it is only available with the High Roof 170-inch wheelbase model.

Even the Sprinter Passenger Van offers a four-wheel-drive system, but only for the Standard and High Roof 144-inch wheelbase models.
