In Germany, autobahn lane discipline doesn’t mean staying in one lane all the time but rather moving to the right when you are finished passing. But in recent years, adherence to this lane discipline has declined. Fast drivers frequently need to slam on their brakes as slow drivers pull out due to blissful ignorance or a determination to teach a lesson in eco-friendly, low-velocity motoring. However, chances you’ll be taught such an unwelcome lesson are greatly diminished when piloting a vehicle of substantial size and heft. Imagine, if you will, a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter barreling down the left lane of the autobahn at 100 mph. That’s some three tons of metal approaching rapidly in the rearview mirror.
Of course, U.S. customers will be prevented from sharing this experience by virtue of an 82-mph governor setting on all Sprinter models sold here. And a U.S. Mercedes executive confided in us that fleet customers have asked for even lower governor speed settings.
A New Kind of Deliverance
First launched in the European market in 1995, the Sprinter redefined the van segment by virtue of its modern design, carlike performance, and low operating cost. In the U.S., it served as the forerunner of a phalanx of modern space-and-fuel-efficient vans. During the Daimler-Chrysler era, the Sprinter replaced the ancient Dodge Ram Van/Wagon. Today—cost notwithstanding—it easily outclasses the gas-guzzling Ford E-series and GM’s Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana twins. (The existing domestic vans are to be replaced by Sprinter-like, Euro-style vans, perhaps closing the gap.)
The Sprinter serves as the basis for several conversion vehicles, and its commercial-vehicle focus is underscored by the ultratall seating position and somewhat industrial appearance of the interior, slightly upgraded for 2014. But these are characteristics the Sprinter shares with its direct competitors, the Fiat-based Ram ProMaster and the E-series–replacing the Ford Transit. The Sprinter, we think, is nicer.
The 2014 model year is also distinguished from the previous year’s models by its restyled headlights, grille, and front fascia. Large headlights mirror the grille’s contour and thus resemble those of the Mercedes CLA and 2014 S-class. The front bumper loses its “smiley face” look for a tougher appearance, which Mercedes van chief Volker Mornhinweg calls “AMG-like.” He should know, as he headed Daimler’s performance brand in the past. If the speed governor on the Sprinter were lifted, the meaner appearance could actually be put to good use promoting lane discipline.what happened to recipe helper in warcraft?
