January 3rd, 2024 by


Have you been eyeing a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van for your next commercial van purchase? If so, we don’t blame you – this incredible line of vans has been a recognizable market staple since their introduction in 2001. Sprinters are incredibly efficient and offer utility in more ways than one. They are perfect for hauling materials, transporting up to 12 people, and many more functions with custom upfitting. Of course, the next question is whether buying a new or used Sprinter van is the way to go.

What are the Benefits of Buying a New Sprinter Van?

One of the major benefits of buying a new Mercedes-Benz van is full warranty coverage and support. Coupled with the legendary reliability of these German-engineered vans, this means total peace of mind in your investment. Additionally, the latest generation of Sprinter vans offers a wide array of customization, including color, wheelbase size, roof height, additional power, infotainment options, and much more. A new Sprinter van can fully reflect your business needs in terms of branding, functionality, and performance.

What are the Benefits of Buying a Used Sprinter Van?

One of the most obvious benefits of choosing a used Sprinter model is cost savings – at Ray Catena Mercedes-Benz of Edison, we always have extremely competitive offers on pre-owned models so that you can upgrade your commercial fleet within your budget. More than that, Sprinters are known for their consistency in quality and lower levels of depreciation compared to similar models, so you can be assured that even a used Sprinter model will retain its capabilities and value.

What Factors Should You Consider When Deciding Between New and Used Sprinter Vans?

Keeping in mind the benefits of both new and used models, here are some more of the factors to consider in your decision. 

  • Budget: At Ray Catena Mercedes-Benz of Edison, we want to make sure your van purchase is a sound business decision. Our finance department will work with you to help you find terms that work within your requirements. 
  • Intended Use: What you plan to use your Sprinter van for can play a huge role in buying new or used. If you plan to use it for specific business or transport purposes, buying new will allow you to equip all of the features and extra room you could ever need. However, if your needs will be served with a base model or one of the used models in our inventory is upfitted in a way that suits your business, getting a pre-owned model means you’ll have your van immediately ready to work at a lower cost.
  • Preferences: The decision will also come down to your personal preferences and those of your company. If you want the latest infotainment technology, for example, then a new Sprinter will likely be the better choice. Older models will have fewer features, but if such features aren’t needed for your purposes, you will probably find a pre-owned model to be a more attractive option.

Why Choose Ray Catena Edison For Your Sprinter Van Purchase?
