2023 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Debuts With New Diesel Engine, AWD system

The 2023 Sprinter is available with up to 208 hp and 332 lb-ft.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter will be updated in 2023 to make it even more capable, even in harsh situations. In early 2023, the updated car will be available for purchase in the United States.

The engine range for the 2023 Sprinter has been drastically altered, with a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel replacing the 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel. Two tunes are offered for the four-pot engine. The less powerful model has 168 horsepower (125 kW) and torque of 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters). The high-output model produces 208 horsepower (155 kW) and 332 lb-ft of torque (450 Nm).

In comparison, the outgoing 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel made 188 hp (140 kW) and 325 lb-ft (441 Nm) of torque. The previous version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel had 161 hp (120 kW) and 325 lb-ft (441 Nm).

The 2.0-liter, gasoline-fueled four-cylinder carries over for the 2023 Sprinter. It still makes 188 hp (140 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.

The Sprinter now comes standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission, rather than the seven-speed automatic that was previously offered with the 2.0-liter turbodiesel. The new transmission, according to Mercedes, provides for higher fuel efficiency and faster downshifts. Because the first-gear ratio is lower, better beginning acceleration is possible.

A new all-wheel-drive system replaces the old 4×4 configuration on the Sprinter. The latest technology allows for a torque split of up to 50% for each axle. The previous drivetrain could only deliver 35% of the power to the front wheels.

Mercedes is also working on a new generation of the eSprinter electric vehicle for the US market. It’s built on the company’s Electric Versatility Platform, which is made up of three modules: a rear-drive axle, a high-voltage battery under the floor, and a front space for high-voltage components. Three battery capacities are planned by the carmaker.

Mercedes-Benz is investing €50 million ($54 million at current currency rates) in its South Carolina plant to produce eSprinter prototypes in the US. In the second half of 2023, assembly will commence.
