HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. - March 16, 2013 - PRLog -- Recent information and photos released by Mercedes-Benz indicate that the next-generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van will not only be redesigned, but will also include a host of cutting-edge high-tech safety systems. This is exciting news for the folks at Mercedes-Benz of Hoffman Estates (http://www.mercedeshoffman.com/index.htm), who are thrilled that this versatile commercial van looks poised to add best-in-class safety features to its best-in-class payload and cargo capacity.

As the commercial van market becomes even more competitive with the addition of the new Ford Transit Connect and Ram ProMaster entering the fray, Mercedes-Benz is clearly taking the challenge seriously. In photos, the camouflaged prototype of the next-generation Sprinter doesn’t look all that different from the current model, but what is creating the buzz is the announced inclusion of advanced safety systems, many of which are already standard features on most Mercedes-Benz vehicles.  

The safety updates to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter include:

Collision prevention assist
High beam assist
Lane keeping assist
Blind spot assist
Rearview camera
Crosswind assist

The rearview camera and blind spot assist will be enormously helpful additions to any cargo van; and for the high-profile, tall-riding Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, with its best-in-class standing height, the crosswind assist feature is especially attractive.

Along with making safety a standard feature, the future Mercedes-Benz Sprinter may see an upgrade to its powerful and efficient BlueTEC® V6 clean diesel engine, and possibly a new 7-speed automatic transmission in addition to the current 5-speed. The current European Sprinter models come with either a V6 or a 4-cylinder engine, and there has been some speculation that the 4-cylinder may also be made available in the U.S.

They are conveniently located at 1000 West Golf Road in Hoffman Estates, IL, across the street from the Poplar Creek Country Club, IL, just minutes from Naperville.
