Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 2500 170 High Roof

Love or hate it, the Mercedes Sprinter is a popular option for camper conversions, with the 4WD variant being the most desirable. I know many people are sick of seeing this Mercedes plastered on social media, but there’s a reason for its immense popularity. In short, it’s a great vehicle; with dependable drivetrains and engines, relatively good economy, decent build quality and refinement, and excellent internal living space. Now, I’m not saying the Sprinter is without its issues, but very few vans are such impressive all-rounders. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the 4WD iteration has become a big hit amongst overlanders, especially since the stock capability can be significantly upgraded using aftermarket parts and accessories. We’ve recently shared several expedition-ready examples, including a $90,000 2016 4×4 Overland Build, $177,900 Revel 44E, and a $119,000 2017 4×4 2500. Today’s one-owner offering has covered just 100,750 miles, incorporates desirable factory options, and provides a blank canvas for your dream camper built-out.

From the Seller:

“I love this Sprinter and all the adventures we’ve enjoyed in it. The van is ready to get back out there with a fresh interior makeover. Great vehicle for camping and road trips, easy to drive, with video camera monitoring and an upgraded amp and speaker. Cold weather ready with diesel heater and super insulation. Haul big gear, mountain bikes , motorcycles, SUPS, kayaks, etc., with the option to move the two removable captain seats along the full-length L-track tie-down strips. Great adventure vehicle with a proven heritage.”

A dependable engine is mated with good all-terrain performance courtesy of hi/low range and intelligent 4WD (technically AWD) that can send up to 33 percent of the torque to the front wheels.
