Default Dodge unviels new 2007 Sprinter

From http://www.autoblog.com/2007/02/14/d...2007-sprinter/

Nevertheless, the Sprinter's in a class by itself when it comes to commercial vans offered by the Big 3 (2.5, whatever). The 2007 model is all new and gets crazy with the dimensions adding a Super Size model for those who always want fries with that. Compared to last year's largest model, the new Sprinter has increases in width (two inches), interior height (11 inches), exterior height (13 inches), cargo area length (19 inches), vehicle length (30 inches), cargo volume (127 cu. ft.), and towing capacity (2,500 lbs.). For the discriminating business owner, there are no less than three vehicles lengths, two wheelbases, three interior roof heights, and two engines. The two new motors are a 3.0L V6 diesel that produces 154 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs. of torque at 1,200 to 2,400 rpm, and a 3.5L gas V6 making 254 horsepower and 250 ft-lbs. of torque at 2,500 to 5,000 rpm. Both engines are routed through a five-speed automatic. In its largest form, the new Sprinter can swallow 600 cubic feet of stuff in one bite. No doubt the courier industry is excited to see the new 2007 Sprinter, even if we aren't.

Check out the full press release from Dodge after the jump, as well as our gallery that shows both commercial and passenger versions of the new 2007 Dodge Sprinter.

• Three vehicle lengths (233, 273 and 289 inches) on two new wheelbases -- 144 inches, 170 inches or 170 inches extended with 15-inch longer rear overhang, the longest wheelbase in the segment
• Three interior roof height options: standard (65 inches), high (76 inches) and new mega (84 inches) -- most among full-size vans
• Choice of two all-new engines: new 3.0-liter V-6 diesel or 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine
• Most best-in-class advantages including cargo capacity (up to 600 cubic feet), interior compartment accessibility, payload (5,770 lbs.), lowest side step-in height (19.9 inches), widest rear-door opening (270 degrees), cargo-sliding door loading width (51 inches), and increased interior height (up to 84 inches) providing up to 7-feet interior work space
• Three Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) configurations include new higher maximum (11,030 lbs.)
• Oil change intervals of 10,000 miles and maintenance intervals of 30,000 miles contribute to low maintenance costs
• More than 25 advanced safety and security features represent highest level of safety and security technology available in the full-size van segment
• All-new ADAPTIVE ESP® takes electronic stability programs to the next level
• Unique CARGO PROTECTION® system reduces accident risk from shifting loads
• Unmatched upfit-friendly design
• New standard features include power windows and locks, integrated wide-angle mirrors, halogen headlamps, 16-inch wheels, tilt- and height- adjustable steering wheel, CD radio, one-touch triple-flash function turn signals, and all-new ADAPTIVE ESP for improved functionality and safety capability

Armed with an all-new super-sized Sprinter, Dodge continues to build on its presence in the commercial vehicle market. Completely redesigned, the all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter breaks the mold of current domestic van offerings and delivers superior quality, reliability and commercial capability, along with unequalled attributes that allow commercial customers to do even more.

"The all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter raises the bar and sets a new commercial standard in the full-size van market," said George Murphy, Senior Vice President – Global Brand Marketing, Chrysler Group. "Targeted at commercial customers who want to take the performance of their commercial vehicle and business to the next level, the all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter answers the call and continues Dodge's revolution of the light- and medium-duty commercial vehicle market."

More Versatility, Choices and Features

Dodge's super-sized Sprinter offers expanded versatility and even more choices and features. Compared to the previous model, the all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter boasts increases in width (two inches), interior height (11 inches), exterior height (13 inches), cargo area length (19 inches), vehicle length (30 inches), cargo volume (127 cu. ft.), and towing capacity (2,500 lbs.). Sprinter is available in three vehicle lengths (233, 273 and 289 inches) on two new wheelbases of 144 inches or 170 inches, or 170 inches extended with a 15-inch longer rear overhang. It also boasts three interior roof height options: standard (65 inches), high (76 inches) and new super (84 inches) – the most among full-size vans.

Powered by a choice of two all-new premium engines, a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine with 154 horsepower or 3.5-liter V-6 gas engine with 254 horsepower, three different Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) configurations are offered including a new higher maximum GVWR up to 11,030 lbs. for cargo vans and chassis cabs. With increased best-in-class interior height (up to 84 inches), both cargo and passenger high-roof models provide up to 7-feet interior work space.

New standard features include power windows and locks, integrated wide-angle mirrors, halogen headlamps, 16-inch wheels, tilt- and height- adjustable steering wheel, CD radio, one-touch triple-flash function turn signals, and all-new ADAPTIVE ESP® for improved functionality and safety capability. Going beyond the capability of the traditional electronic stability program, ADAPTIVE ESP takes into account the way the Sprinter is loaded. Sensors ascertain the vehicle mass, which ultimately determines the vehicle's center of gravity.

Most Best-In-Class Advantages

The all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter has the most class-leading attributes including best-in-class cargo capacity (up to 600 cubic feet), highest maximum payload (5,770 lbs.), lowest side step-in height (19.9 inches), greatest interior roof height (up to 7 feet) and widest rear-door opening (270 degrees). Its new pallet-friendly cargo sliding door offers a best-in-class loading width of 51 inches.
As the class leader in versatility and operating performance, the 2007 Dodge Sprinter has oil change intervals of 10,000 miles which contribute to low maintenance costs.

More than 25 Safety and Security Features Set New Benchmark in Commercial Van Segment

Delivering more than 25 advanced safety and security features -- the highest level of advance safety and security technology available in the full-size van segment, the all-new 2007 Dodge Sprinter continues to offer superior occupant protection. New for 2007 is an all-new ADAPTIVE ESP® system which takes electronic stability programs to the next level. This standard safety system takes into account the vehicle payload which further reduces the risk of vehicle skidding and loss of control.

All 2007 Dodge Sprinter cargo vans utilize a unique CARGO PROTECTION® load-securing and lashing rail system allowing straps to be attached at multiple locations for enhanced cargo and passenger protection.

Showcasing a unibody construction that reduces curb weight and maximizes payload, other standard safety features include power steering and brakes, three-point lap/shoulder belts (height adjustable for driver and front passenger), headrests for all seats, and an available ParkSense® System which uses ultrasonic sensors in front and rear bumpers to assist the driver when maneuvering or parking.
Dodge Sprinter

Available in the global market since 1995, Sprinter is a proven winner with worldwide sales of more than 1.2 million units. Used in more than 100 countries throughout the world, it is the best-selling vehicle in its class throughout Europe.

As part of DaimlerChrysler, the world's leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles, Dodge continues to increase the breadth of its commercial products and offers a comprehensive array of vehicles and services designed with business customers in mind.
