2009 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 Introduced – (Australia)

The multi-award-winning Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van and cab-chassis range is now available in Australia with all-wheel drive.

The new Sprinter 4×4 range utilises extensive all-wheel drive know-how developed by Mercedes-Benz, which boasts more than a century of experience with four-wheel drive technology.

The option of all-wheel drive in the Sprinter range is designed to enhance vehicle traction in slippery, low-grip conditions. Surfaces such as snow, ice, and mud often limit the operational capacity of vehicles, and the clever all-wheel drive system fitted to the Sprinter 4×4 delivers substantially improved handling and traction in such poor road conditions, thereby extending the already-impressive capabilities of the award-winning Sprinter.

All models from the Sprinter 4×4 range feature selectable all-wheel drive, allowing the driver to engage drive to all four wheels at the touch of a button, without the need for any manual activation. When in operation, front-to-rear drive torque is divided 35:65.

When in all-wheel drive mode, the Sprinter 4×4 utilises electronic control to direct torque to the wheels with the greatest amount of grip, and to reduce wheel slip to those with less traction. Known as 4ETS, or 4-wheel Electronic Traction System, this clever system mimics the operation of mechanical differential locks, but without the penalty of their weight, cost and consequent wear.

The 4ETS system works in close cooperation with the Sprinter 4×4#8217;s standard-fitment ADAPTIVE ESP® (Electronic Stability Control) system, which constantly monitors the vehicle#8217;s driving status, always on standby to help correct a loss-of-control condition prior to its occurrence.

All models in the Sprinter 4×4 come equipped with the same suite of safety and comfort features that have made the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter not only an award-winner, but also popular with customers from a variety of industries.

Adding all-wheel drive capability will see the Sprinter at home in a variety of vocations, extending its already-popular reach into areas such as mining, tourism, emergency services, and telecommunications.

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 is priced from $67,990 (excluding dealer delivery and statutory charges) and is now available from all authorised Mercedes-Benz van dealerships.
