We'll get one diesel and one gas engine here. I'd bet on that. Looks like the Ford Transit that's built right up the road from me with an uglied up front lower fascia.
Nice dash though....it's about time

I'm disappointed. The Sprinter just got uglier. Oh well. It's not like this class has been winning beauty pageants lately. That 4 banger will be making a run at the small transits, I'm assuming .

Some additional details from the new Sprinter launch presentation for North American engine options:

Diesel inline 4: OM651 (161 hp)
Diesel V6: OM642 (188 hp)
Gasoline inline 4: M274 (hp TBA)

The M274 is a 2.0 liter turbocharged direct injection gas engine that yields 184-245 hp in European trim. Since utility vans generally get derated versions for reliability the lower end of that range seems likely for NA gas Sprinters.

Interestingly those are all previous generation engines, with the OM642 and OM651 having been available on our current generation Sprinters. Their next generation engine replacements are:

Diesel inline 4: OM654
Diesel inline 6: OM656
Gasoline inline 4: M264

For Diesels the next generation engines gain more power and integrated DPF/DEF emission controls. The new M264 petrol engine gets a 48v starter/generator for mild hybrid start/stop and the ability to generate up to 12.5 kW electrical from the engine. That electrical generation capability would seem very interesting for ClassB RV units.

Perhaps we'll see the next generation engines make it into Sprinters for a mid-cycle refresh around 2025?

As far as the exterior goes I think they could have done more but the interior of the cab looks nice.

The new exterior is as earth-shattering as the new G-wagon.

Does anyone know if the new van is more square at the top than the old one?

It leaves me with just one question: is underwhelming properly spelled as one word or two?
