Finally…2017 Sprinter Production Begins in November!

At this time production will begin in November for V6 engine Sprinter vans. We are still waiting for word on when the 4 cyl 2017 production will begin.

Any 2016’s that have been ordered but not scheduled for production yet will get changed to a 2017 automatically. In regards to Sprinter 4×4 production, we are still looking at orders submitted today will take approximately 9 months to get produced in Germany and delivered in Ladson South Carolina.

I do expect that some of my current Sprinter 4×4 orders that are waiting for a production slot, might become available when we finally get a schedule date. When this happens I try to move my existing customers orders up, and sometimes I will be able to offer a production slot sooner than the 9 months normal wait time.

I will be posting the 2017 order guides in the next few days, but there are some changes that they are going to make in what they have sent, so I will wait till they have those changes made before I post them. Here are the main changes in the 2017’s models.

  • All of the model names have changed. Now the model nomenclature is going to tell us not only which model size but also which engine and suspension package it has.


  • The 3500 with 9,990 GVWR can come in either the Super Single or Dual Rear Wheel model.

  • The 144″ wheelbase 3500 or 3500XD are now available in both low roof and high roof versions.

  • The Super High Mega Roof will be available on the 3500XD models.

  • Crew vans will all have the HOO, rear heat vent standard equipment.

  • Passenger vans will now have the roof top rear air conditioning as standard equipment. They also will have the auxiliary fuel fired heater with rear heat vents as standard on all passenger models. Included in these items are the H01 and H04 additional front and rear insulation, cup holders for the two 3 passenger middle bench seats, left and right side armrests for all of the rear bench seats and  LD4 Convenience lighting which allows the driver to turn on the rear ceiling lights.

  • Some new options that are available are a Leather covered steering wheel on all models and body color painted front and rear bumpers on Brilliant Silver and Obsidian Black Metallic painted cargo vans.

  • This one is a big one, we can now get from Mercedes-Benz the F01 Swivel Front Bucket Seat option on any Cargo van model.

  • Then coming after the first of next year, we will have a 4500 with a 12,125 GVWR option.

  • Sometime in the next few weeks we will get more details about the 15 passenger built on a 3500 170″ wb Extended Body with Super Single Rear Wheels.

  • New for 2017 is a Worker Van available in 144″ wb low and high roof and a 170″ wb with either the 4 cyl or V6 Turbo Diesel engines. Coming soon will be a 144″ low roof Passenger Worker model. All Worker models are restricted to Arctic White exterior and cloth seating, and limited to what options are available.

They have pricing for the options and packages but not the base prices for the models yet. Usually they do not announce base prices until the vans are about to be released from the factory. That should be sometime in December 2016.
