Pricing and specification has been announced for the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter AWD, which is now available to order for March 2019 production, priced from £37,540 excluding VAT for the Sprinter 314 Chassis L2 AWD.

The Sprinter AWD is designed to offer a practical and capable solution where additional traction is required, and uses the tried and trusted Mercedes-Benz 4-ETS (Electronic Traction System) technology, which is integrated with Adaptive ESP, offering unrivalled traction management in operation.

The Sprinter AWD features selectable low range transmission and Downhill Speed Regulation to enhance the traction and grade ability of the Sprinter range even further, as well as increasing the climbing ability of the vehicle.

The AWD system is turned on and off electro-hydraulically, enabling the system to be engaged (4×4) or disengaged (4×2) in vehicle speeds of up to 6 mph if conditions demand. The system is operated by a dashboard mounted rocker switch with integrated indicator lights to show selection and full engagement.

The system uses full electronic control to manage traction which negates the need for a manually engaged differential lock. In all-wheel-drive mode, the transfer case sends 35% of the power to the front axle and 65% to the rear axle. With low range engaged torque is increased by around 40%.
