You know how something becomes virtually invisible after you see it often enough? That's the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in a nutshell. Take some time to look around, and you'll notice an army of Sprinters crawling your local roadways, whether they're delivering packages or carrying roofing materials to a job site. These workhorses are ubiquitous for a reason: They're really, really good at what they do. And with a new generation now in the wild, the Sprinter makes an even better case for itself.
Mercedes-Benz's vans don't stray too far from the rest of the family in terms of style. Most of that is apparent in the front end, which picks up slimmer headlights that more closely resemble the peepers on other Mercs. My tester's unpainted lower body panels actually look pretty boss against glossy black paint -- and besides, it's a work vehicle, why paint the bumpers if they're just going to get dinged up? The black steel wheels are pretty badass, too.
If you feel like a good laugh, allow me to point out that this van's Jet Black paint job actually adds $1,015 to the Sprinter's bottom line. That's the Mercedes-Benz we all know and love. It doesn't matter if you're the CEO or the guy driving the van -- the automaker will nickel and dime you without respect for socioeconomic strata. Then again, this is no paupermobile: My 144-inch 3500XD Crew 4x4 model starts at $51,885, but after options, it's pushing $72,000.
The seventh-gen SL was developed by AMG and will have standard all-wheel drive, a 2+2 layout and a fabric top.
