Freightliner Light Duty Sprinter Crew Van Models and Sprinter Crew Van History
With a cabin design accounting for cargo as well as passenger space, Freightliner's Sprinter Crew Van was introduced for the 2011 model year. Created as a solution for work crews to travel back and forth from a job site with a full array of equipment inside, Crew Van's interior layout features a second-row seating arrangement. Total occupancy for the Freightliner Sprinter Crew Van is five passengers. Cargo capacity for the van is dependent on selecting the available 144-inch or 170-inch wheelbase length. With a standard roof configuration, the 144-inch version of the Freightliner Sprinter Crew Van's cargo capacity is rated at 220.1 cubic feet. Equipped with a high roof, the 170-inch model provides up to 367.5 cubic feet of storage space. The exterior for the Freightliner Sprinter Crew Van is distinguished by second-row windows while cargo van paneling is used for the rear section. The 2011 model's standard power came from a 3.0-liter V-6 turbocharged BlueTEC diesel engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. In 2014, a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel became the base powerplant combined with a seven-speed gearbox. For 2015, the Crew Van model along with the cargo and passenger Freightliner Sprinter vans begun offering four-wheel drive as an option.
