Throwing down for one of these as soon as I can get one. Pumped they are coming in 4X4 !! Have a 2017 now but it handles like shit in dirt and snow. All new design and better handling around 6,000 less too. Photo

That doesn't look like the 2019 Sprinter. The '19 has entirely different headlights and body styling. That's the second gen NCV3 body style. They've been available in 4x4 for awhile now...

Edit: I see - Mercedes is finally getting around to producing an '18 model, which has been heavily delayed for a variety of reasons. The primary reason being the VW diesel fiasco and delays with getting the diesel engines compliant in the US. Looks like they are trying to squeeze out the coveted 4x4 configuration to clear out inventory before they start producing the '19 models in the newly minted US manufacturing facility in South Carolina.

Good price. I suspect they will be hard to get. People have been waiting for well over a year for the '18 model.

The 2WD is just fine, a billion miles have been put on these vans in all season, all over the globe, how many currier sprinters or fedex sprinters do you see in a snowy ditch? It’s all about the tires bro, and weight over the rear axel. I drove my 2011 in plenty of Snow/ice storms in north Utah this fast winter. I’m a new sprinter owner, and will never not own one again, I might have to sell my 170 to get the 170 ext, that extra 18” would be nice for 2 big bikes and 2 85s, cram it

Funny looks like a 19 ‘ to me since I pulled it from the website. I’ve have 5 sprinter vans all two wheel drive and if you have ever driven one in the snow up a hill you will know they absolutely suck. Not to mention any mud whatsoever. I ride a lot and travel all over in mine and the newer model seems to be a lot nicer. Yes the one in the photo is a 19’ and 4X 4 .. squids haha smh

The factory ECU detonates as soon as you drive over one single snowflake and goes into anti slip. At work, I do everything possible to avoid sprinters during the winter. I’m a swing driver so I don’t have an assigned vehicle. Our big freightliner 700’s are the bees knees to deliver in all weather.

Ford is going to have a 4X4 option on the 2020 Transit Van also.

And next week will be week number six waiting on parts to repair body damage to the left rear of one for a customer who works in the air conditioning business. He'll be a couple months without his service vehicle in the peak season due to Ford's inability to provide replacement parts. I have one other customer in the a/c business limping around with wreck damage until parts are available. Just food for thought...

The Sprinter website is currently promoting the 2018 4x4, which they were finally able to import (diesel emission b.s. due to the VW fiasco). They haven't produced a single 2019 Sprinter model in the US yet. All US Sprinters will be manufactured in their new South Carolina plant starting with the 2019 models.

That is the NCV3 body. This is what the '19 will look like:

Yes the photo I put up is a 19 and yes I am aware they are not released yet.. I’ve done plenty of research .

The new '19 sprinter looks great. Many delivery company's here in Holland are using it already for a few months.
The new Volkswagen crafter is also a great van.

To bad they ruin the motor with the US blue tech emissions stuff. They need a gasser. Will the 19s rust like the current ones?

You mean all the paint flaking off like they do here? And then yes, they do start to rust. I've seen some sweet Sprinter setups. Lots of possibilities.

I love my Transit! Gas 17.8 mpg @ 80 to 90 mph highway speed. And you can get a 4 x 4 Quigley now and a 4 x 4 straight from ford in 2020.

They are currently producing the 2019 in South Carolina, but the units are dedicated to Amazon’s 20,000 vehicle order sad

It would be interesting to see other forum members interior van set ups. Twitch had one of the best setups I've seen but to have it that decked out takes some serious money.
