This is the upcoming 2023 Mercedes Sprinter with Diesel Engine. The German automaker will be transitioning the popular van to a four-cylinder engine lineup solely. Swapping the diesel 3.0L V6 for a twin-turbo diesel 2.0L inline-four for higher horsepower and torque figures. Along with the updated powertrains, Mercedes-Benz offers the van an all-wheel-drive system.
The new AWD system is an on-demand setup that automatically provides torque between its axles as demanded, which helps in a more fine-tuned control over the terrain.
