Dodge Sprinter 2500 Meeting Family and Commercial Needs
The Dodge Sprinter concept is related to a utility vehicle, which offers spacious riding and the ability to transport large volumes of passengers or cargo. As with other full-size Vans, it was intended to meet the requirements of large families or for commercial use. It was not designed for the upmarket segment and with powered lift-gates, designer powered seating or cup holders. However, the Dodge Sprinter 2500 offers a uniqueness all their own!
The second-generation Dodge Sprinter was marketed from 2007-2009 for the purpose of a passenger or cargo van. The passenger version was offered in the form of the 2500 version only, but with various body alternatives. The Sprinter 2500 included two wheelbases options, 366 cm and 144 and 432 cm, and two body lengths of 592 cm.
The second generation of the Mercedes constructed Dodge Sprinter was offered with a 3.0 L, turbo-diesel V6 engine that generated 154 horsepower with 280 lb-ft of torque. Alternatively, there was the 3.5 L, gasoline V6 power unit with 254 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Both versions were fitted with a 5-speed automatic transmission. For the record, the gasoline V6 engine version of the Dodge Sprinter 2500 Vans was discontinued for the 2009 model year.
Features and Performance of the Sprinter 2500
Despite the towing capacity of the Sprinter not being generally comparable with that of its competitors, it was adequate for its designed tasks, which it performed effectively. Standard features such as a tilt-telescoping steering wheel and automatic climate control set the Sprinter 2500 apart in the full-size segment.
With antilock brakes and stability control being offered as standard, there seemed to be an almost overwhelming abundance of available options, which gave buyers the opportunity to customize the vans for their particular purposes! Dodge Sprinter 2500 buyers were offered various other available features that included; Multiple driving seat selection, Rear parking assist, Heated front seats, Sunroof and Integrated phone connectivity.
Also of note was that the passenger van was also the only model in its class offering a driver-side sliding door.

In 2002 it had a short exposure to commercial users under the Freightliner brand name. Sprinter Vans offer versatility, character and are a market success in their own right!
