Mercedes Sprinter Van Shames Ordinary Limos

Despite being boxy and relatively aged-looking, Mercedes’ Sprinter van continues to be a versatile and popular platform for transporting goods and, in this case, executives. With its tall roof, the Sprinter van gives people enough room to stand up and move about. To ensconce their intended market in the lap of luxury, Brilliant Transportation pulled out all stops to transform the plebian sprinter into a chariot worthy of any power broker. The Brilliant Van is basically an ultra-luxurious limousine with a massive amount of headroom. Departing from the airport shuttle image of the Sprinter, Brilliant has installed leather captain’s chairs facing a bank of electronic aids (don’t say gadgets!) for… Continue Reading »

Waitrose Taps Gas-Powered Merc Sprinters to Slash Carbon Footprint

Bracknell-based UK upmarket supermarket chain Waitrose has just acquired a quintet of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter NGT models. NGT stands for Natural Gas Technology, and this means that the Sprinters all run on Liquid Bio-methane, sustainable natural gas that was made from landfill gas. The move aims to bolster Waitrose’s green initiatives as the vans operate from locations outside London. “This is a very exciting project,” said Ray Collington, who works as the fleet engineer for Waitrose parent company, the John Lewis Partnership. “We are committed to reducing our CO2 footprint, which is why much of our own food waste goes back into anaerobic digestion.” The five NGT Sprinters were supplied by… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz Sprinters Recalled

According to Mercedes-Benz USA, there are five models of the Sprinter van being recalled at the moment, thanks to an interior trim issue affecting some 2007 and 2010 models of the Sprinter 2500 and 3500. In the five vehicle models affected, the right interior trim might not be installed, which will cause the vehicle to fail the “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact” component of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 201. With the wrong trim in place, there is an increased risk of injury in the event that the car gets involved in an accident where the A-pillar is impacted. If you own any of the affected Sprinter models, February… Continue Reading »

Introducing: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Grand Edition

Sometimes, it can be pretty interesting to see automobile manufacturers that fuse some of the things they are known for. In Mercedes-Benz’s case, that’s powerful luxury cars like the SLS AMG and reliable commercial vehicles like the Sprinter van. Now comes a vehicle that will fuse functionality and luxury: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Grand Edition. The Sprinter is known mostly for being a delivery van, from couriers like DHL to ice cream companies such as Haagen-Dazs.
