The 2022 Sprinter is highly capable and comes with variety of powertrain options and technology. But it is still more expensive than its rivals such as Ram ProMaster and Ford Transit. It offered with turbo-four engine as a standard with two different diesel engine options with rear-wheel or all-wheel drivetrain. It has a towing capacity of 7500 pounds which is quite lower than the Nissan’s 9500 pounds.

The Mercedes-Benz doesn’t make any changes for Sprinter line-up in 2022.

Engine, Top Speed, 0-60 & Performance
The Sprinter comes in three variants and three engine options. 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 188 HP and mated to 9-speed automatic transmission is standard. This amount of power is only for normal use and not so good for towing purpose. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is offered with two turbocharged diesel options: 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine producing 166 HP with 266 pound-feet torque and 3.0-litre V6 engine generating 188 HP with 325 pound-feet of torque. The both engine are mated to 7-speed automatic transmission. Only V6 engine option and Transit variant is available with all-wheel drivetrain. Expected 0-60 mph is 8.2 Seconds and has a Top Speed of 99 MPH which is pretty nice for a vehicle like this.
Fuel Economy | Mileage
EPA doesn’t estimate the fuel efficiency for the vehicle with Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 8500 pounds. Expected Mileage is 18 MPG in City and 21 MPG on Highway which is not much good.
