The working man now has a working van. Targeting those who epitomize putting in a hard day’s work, the new Freightliner Sprinter Worker Cargo Van has the power, cargo space and affordability to become the everyman’s most important tool. Utilizing a diesel engine as powerful as anyone that regularly comes home covered in dirt, dust and sweat needs, the Worker van can tow up to 5,000 pounds while holding over 3,500 pounds. That kind of capacity means nothing without the cargo space to hold enough to get up to that weight. With 320 cubic feet of cargo volume, the Worker van can hold anything a job site needs. And as those needs continue to mount, time becomes more and more of the essence. Thankfully, the Worker van doesn’t need to be brought in every other week for tune-ups or other time-wasting maintenance. Instead, service intervals of up to 20,000 miles mean the Worker van will be more dependable than even the hardest worker on any given site. Needless to say, it gets the job done. But the job isn’t always the most important aspect of a worker’s life – it’s the family that worker is coming home to. The Worker van cares just as much about safety as it does with providing all the tools needed for a successful day on the job. Features such as load-adaptive ESP, crosswind assist and six airbags make sure you get to and from the job safe and sound.
If you have a thirst for power, nothing will satiate it more than the Worker van. Combining the benefits of two-stage turbocharged power, 265 pound-feet of torque, diesel fuel economy and durability in one compact package, the impressive 4-cylinder powertrain with 7-speed 7G-TRONIC transmission offers you up to 18 percent greater fuel efficiency.
In addition to the safety features listed above, the Worker van’s Blind Spot Assist uses state-of-the-art radar sensors to monitor your surroundings. Audible warnings and visual notifications are triggered whenever the system detects another vehicle or object alongside the van.
Nothing beats a comfortable place to rest while driving from job to job. As beat up as your body may get during the course of your work, the Worker van has features such as an optional multifunction steering wheel, bold gearshift lever, high-gloss panel and convenient dashboard storage to make it as ergonomic as any everyman could possibly need.
