2015 Mercedes-Benz 4X4 Sprinter Coming Soon near Chicago
What could possibly make one of the best cargo vans on the market better? Well 4×4 of course! It is announced that Mercedes-Benz will be planning to offer a new 4×4 powertrain for their upcoming 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cargo van offerings. Sure to be a hit with businesses everywhere, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz 4X4 Sprinter Coming Soon near Chicago will especially benefit those who reside in the Midwest where we all know snowfall and the occasional ice storm is always imminent.
The overall appearance of the new 2015 Mercedes-Benz 4X4 Sprinter Coming Soon near Chicago will remain the same except for a small 4×4 badge on the rear door and a slightly higher ride height hoisting up the front-end end about 4 inches and the rear end up about 3 inches. Aside from those minor tweaks, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will be available in the same cab/cargo configurations as before.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter coming soon near Chicago will be the only commercial cargo van available with a factory 4×4 option. If one wished for an all-wheel drive cargo van in the past, aftermarket conversions were available, but this was a rather costly upgrade. The 4×4 option for the Sprinter will work similarly to that of the Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® systems already found on their SUVs like the GLK-Class and M-Class, however, Mercedes-Benz calls their Sprinter 4×4 option 4ETS instead.
The 4ETS system will not be fully automatic like the 4MATIC® system either, and will require the driver to manually engage it by via a push button next to the driver’s steering column. When the 4×4 system is engaged, 35% of the engines torque power will be transferred from the rear wheels to the front. For even greater 4×4 capability, the 2015 Sprinter will be also available with a lower gear transfer case.
Even though new 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter models near Chicago will be available with a new more efficient 2.1-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, the 2015 4×4 option will only work with the more powerful 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 engine option.
