Which cargo van is more versatile: Sprinter or Transit?

When you are looking at growing your fleet, payload and cargo volume are likely some of the first words that pop into your mind. In that regard, the Sprinter Cargo Van gives you the options you need. Not only does the Sprinter Cargo Van provide a higher maximum payload capacity of nearly 900 pounds more, it can also give you over 50 cubic-feet of extra cargo room.

Interior standing height can be very in many lines of work. Depending on what you are going to be hauling, and how often the interior needs to be accessed, you may need that extra room. The Sprinter Cargo Van wins in this category again. With its Super High Roof option, you’ll have well over 7 feet of clearance inside meaning that pretty much anyone can stand up without any issues. That’s more than can be said for the Transit Cargo Van.

Another beautiful feature that has been added to the Sprinter lineup is the ability to have four-wheel drive. The Ford Transit Cargo Van doesn’t offer four-wheel drive at all. If you have plans for your cargo van that include muddy job sites, inclement weather, or even country driving, then you should consider the benefits that four-wheel drive can provide.

If you need help finding the right Sprinter Cargo Van for your needs, then come down to Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead Sprinter. We are always happy to help, and we can sort through all your options so you get the right solution for your business.
