The Sprinter Worker is your new everyman's cargo van (pictures)

With straightforward packaging and a low cost of entry, Sprinter's new Worker van is a great way to get into a full-size cargo van without necessarily breaking the bank, even if you opt for a fully loaded model.

The Sprinter Worker is now the entry-level, full-size Sprinter van, resting between the smaller Mercedes-Benz Metris and the larger, more expensive Sprinter 2500.

The Sprinter Worker is $4,000 cheaper than the 2500, as well, with a starting price of $32,495.

Even if you opt for all the bells and whistles possible, you'll end up just $500 above the 2500's starting price.

The Worker comes in just one size (144-inch wheelbase), with a standard roof and no 4x4 capability.

However, the Worker matches the 2500's towing and payload capacities, at 5,000 pounds and 3,512 pounds, respectively.

The Worker does have a drawback -- its 319.1 cubic-foot max cargo volume is lower than the 2500's 586.1-cubic-foot max cargo volume.

That said, the Worker's base cargo volume is actually larger than the 2500's -- 319.1 cubic feet versus 246.7 cubic feet.

The van is also only available in white, which makes it perfect for a small business dying to slap on a fancy vinyl livery.
