The Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 is one of the most commonly used vans for overland builds. Dependable motors and drivetrains, impressive 4WD performance, generous interior living spaces, and access to a wide array of aftermarket parts and accessories are just a few reasons it’s so popular. It’s, therefore no surprise that we’ve featured a number of expedition-ready examples including this 2018 170WB Sportsmobile w/ Alu-Cab Rooftop Tent, 2016 2500 170 High Roof, and a 2016 Overland Build. If you’d like a better idea of what a modified Sprinter 4×4 is capable of then I highly recommend checking out Chad DeRosa’s Desert Overlanding YouTube episode. Today’s low-mileage (47,000 miles) offering is without doubt the most well-equipped Sprinter we’ve featured with an impressive “50 factory options.” Additionally, it has undergone a huge transformation including a long list of premium modifications and accessories and a well-equipped camper conversion. If you’d like to know more about this build check out its website and YouTube at vantripping.com.
From the Seller:
“One owner, very functional and durable build with many off-road long-distance travel and camping upgrades in nearly new condition. Showcased at Overland Expo and professionally built.”
2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4
The Sprinter is fitted with a V6 engine that produces 188 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. A long-lived motor and drivetrain are mated with respectable all-terrain capability, thanks to low range, intelligent 4WD (technically AWD that can send up to 33 percent of the torque to the front wheels), and intelligent on-board systems such as downhill descent control. The stock go-anywhere capability can be drastically enhanced with aftermarket parts and accessories from the likes of ARB, Van Compass, and Agile Offroad. This particular offering was originally specced with “50 factory options” which include the following driver comforts:
- Heated windscreen, rear windows, and wipers
- Comfort seats on factory swivels
- Factory D5 heater
- Cold weather and towing packages
- Factory auxiliary battery to power stereo and exterior lights
