  • Look at what the Sprinter OFFERS customers

    Sprinter is the pioneer that led the way to Euro-style commercial large vans in the United States. Ford Transit copies the basic design principles of Sprinter but does not offer all of the features that make a van a true Euro-style van. Ford, Ram, and Nissan all have competitors to

    the Sprinter. Of these, Fords Transit is closest to Sprinter in basic design and is the segments volume leader. However, Transit cannot match Sprinters superior number of configurations or its reputation for reliability and cost efficiency. The callouts examine Transit and ProMaster.

  • Transit is the segment volume

    leader, but Transit CAN be beat!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS:

    Sprinter Cargo Vans are available in more configurations than Transit, with more efficient

    use of cargo space. Ford Transit does not offer a Crew version of the Cargo Van for

    specialized applications where passenger- and cargo-carrying capabilities are required.

    WHEELBASE Sprinter Cargo Vans with

    the 144" wheelbase surpass the Transit

    130" wheelbase vans in all major comparative

    categories.

    WHEELBASESprinter Cargo Vans with

    the 144" wheelbase provide capabilities to compete against the Transit with its largest

    148" wheelbase..

    WHEELBASE 170" wheelbase

    Sprinter Cargo Vans surpass the capabilities of the Transit with the 148" wheelbase and

    even the 148" EL wheelbase.

    WHEELBASE 170" Ext wheelbase

    Sprinter Cargo Vans are by far the most capable vans in the marketplace

    and surpass the next competitor by at

    least 21.7".3RD GENERATION WITH A PROVEN DESIGN. May not be the segment leader in sales numbers but is the overall leader in capability, innovation, proven dependability, and cost efficiency. This guide gives you the proof of that.

    TRANSIT TAKES OVER FOR FORD E-SERIES, the prior segment leader. Both E-Series and Transit benefit from Fords large dealer network, reasonable efficiency, and cost benefits that are associated with a standard gasoline engine.

  • KEY TAKEAWAYS:

    Sprinter Super Single has a notable advantage over the Transit 350 SRW. Build the story

    with our customers to ensure that they fully understand how much more can be done by

    purchasing a Sprinter Super Single Cargo Van.

    TECHNICAL TIP: PALLETS Space usually means pallets. Dual rear-wheel commercial vans dont have the space between the wheel wells that appeal to a buyer with pallet needs."

    Super Single advantages versus the competitionBeats Transit 350 SRW

    in virtually all categories: cargo volume, payload

    capacity to carry that cargo, and GVWR.

    Appeals to any customer who needs to haul heavy

    payloads and needs space between the

    wheel wells.

    Provides great dimensions for carrying pallets over the Sprinter

    3500 with dual rear wheels.

    Ford does have Transit 350 SRW models, but they do not surpass Transit in the important specs of payload and cargo volume, especially the 170" wheelbase

    Transit Super Single.

    Sprinter vs. Transit Cargo Vans

    Sprinter Cargo Vans give you significant advantages (highlighted in blue) in four areas important to your business.

  • Superior capability

    SPRINTER AND TRANSIT BOTH PROVIDE A WIDE SELECTION of Cab Chassis and Cutaway models. These are designed to meet the needs of vocational buyers who require cargo-hauling capability as well as those who require a platform for upfits.

    Sprinter is available in two wheelbsases (both 3500 with dual rear wheels). Transit offers three wheelbases.

    Sprinter and Transit both provide a wide selection of Cab Chassis and Cutaway models.

    POPULAR CONFIGURATIONS

    Transit may have more configurations, including a single rear-wheel version, but for popular configurations, Sprinter is there to meet customer needs (e.g., Luxury RVs).

    MORE PAYLOAD

    Sprinter provides more payload capacity than any Transit configuration up to 6,200 lbs. Thats what customers in this segment look for, load-carrying capacity.

    11,030 GVWR

    Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is how Cab Chassis models and Cutaways are measured. At 11,030 pounds GVWR, Sprinter is the obvious winner over Transit.

    DIESEL POWERED

    Diesel engines are synonymous with this segment. Transit comes with a standard gasoline engine. All Sprinter Cab Chassis and Cutaway models are diesel powered.

    Sprinter focuses models on the

    highest volume

    Positioning against the competition

    POSITIONING AGAINST TRANSIT

    Superior low-roof advantage. Sprinters low-roof version is about 10 inches taller than Transits, which is the height of a traditional van. This makes the Transit low-roof version more of a competitor to the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana.

    Fit and finish and overall interior and exterior appearance do not measure up to Mercedes-Benz standards.

    Front-wheel drive.

    Does not offer a Crew version of the Cargo Van or 4X4.

    Does not offer a Passenger Van this is only available through an expensive upfit.

    Even though Ram ProMaster has 3 wheelbases, 4 body

    lengths, and 2 roof heights, it does not have the selection of

    Sprinter, nor its capability.

    Its primary engine is gasoline. When equipped with a diesel

    engine, the price goes up significantly.

    SOME CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONSIDER THE RAM PROMASTER. HERE ARE IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER.

    Commercial van buyers look to maximize efficiency while balancing economy and dependability. Keeping the van on the road is essential. So just selling on price doesnt work. Instead, present the whole story of what Sprinter can provide and how well your service department will stand behind it.

    SPRINTER FEATURES AN ALL-DIESEL ENGINE LINEUP that is superior for overall fuel economy, dependability, performance, and long-term durability. While our competitors may appear to have a lower price, when theyre configured with diesel engines, the price becomes more comparable a fact that needs to be pointed out to prospective customers.

  • SPRINTER 4X4: SNOW, ICE, MUD NO PROBLEM!

    Introduced as a late 2015 model, Sprinter is the only available commercial van with factory-installed 4-wheel drive.

    AGAINST RAM PROMASTER All the previous points apply. In addition, with Sprinter, theres the efficiency provided by rear-wheel drive when 4X4 is not activated. Ram ProMaster lacks in capability, fit and finish, efficiency, and virtually any other comparative benchmark.

    Do they have a Crew version of their Transit Cargo Van?

    Do they lead in payload?

    Do they have the cargo volume as well as the capability of a 170" wheelbase cargo van?

    And, most important, can they provide a van that efficiently and

    effectively fights snow and ice?

  • MAJOR SPRINTER FEATURES

    No other Crew Van provides Sprinters capability to haul a full load of gear and equipment as well as up to five occupants. For certain vocations and applications like oil and gas, utilities and much more, Sprinter Crew Van is the answer to the customers work needs.

    THE COMPETITION SAYS THE RIGHT VAN FOR THE JOB.

    Your counter: ProMaster Cargo Van is a good competitor, but when you look at all the possible configurations of the Sprinter, the advantage goes to Mercedes-Benz. Note that the Sprinter uses only diesel power and rear-wheel drive just to name a few specific differences. When considering all the configuration possibilities as well as significantly higher levels of capability, theres no way that ProMaster can equal the Sprinter, let alone have any claims as a superior vehicle.

  • COLLISON PREVENTION ASSIST The system can provide visual and audible warnings if an imminent collision is detected. In addition, the system will assist the drivers braking, if necessary, when the brakes are applied.

    Blind Spot Assist Optional feature uses radar technology to recognize vehicles in the blind spot in the rear part of the vehicle. A red triangle in the exterior side view mirrors alerts the driver to approaching vehicles. A tone sounds if the driver actuates the turn signal to indicate a lane change and there is a vehicle present.

    Crosswind Assist Standard feature functions at over 50 mph to detect strong gusts of crosswind and automatically apply the brakes on one side of the vehicle, helping the vehicle stay on course.

    Lane Keeping Assist Optional camera-based feature helps prevent accidents from the vehicle unintentionally leaving its lane. Communicates with the driver through steering wheel pulses.

    PARKTRONIC with Active Parking Assist Optional feature helps the driver when searching for and maneuvering into and out of both parallel and perpendicular parking spaces. Parking spots can be searched for at speeds up to 18 mph. When a parking space is found, the driver confirms the parking spot. In the case of parallel parking situations, the system can also be used to maneuver out of the parking spot.
