After a seven-year stint as a Dodge, the Sprinter was reincarnated for 2010 by Mercedes, its original maker, with sleeker styling and a diesel engine.
While it may seem ordinary in terms of its tow rating, the Sprinter can play with the big boys when it comes to heavy hauling. With a maximum payload of 5,375 pounds, the van stands up to many heavy-duty work trucks in terms of how much you can weigh it down.
There's room galore for cargo, with up to 537 cubic feet of space inside the cab and 6 feet, 4 inches of standing room. It can also carry up to a dozen people.
