Now, since Mercedes-Benz has already launched their new Sprinter 4X4 in the US market, the Sportsmobile has now come up with new and enhanced efficiency in the line of all terrain Sprinter diesel camper. Sportsmobile has been in the market of building the Sprinter campers since 2003, but in spite of that, they’ve always been restricted to the 2WD. In the year 2006, when the Sprinter was being sold off to the Dodge brand in US, the Sportsmobile started developing the 4X4 conversion of the Sprinter with the spare parts of Oberaigner, the brand known for building the 4WD hardware for Mercedes.
It was really late for Mercedes-Benz but finally they’ve been successful in launching the Sprinter 4X4 over the Atlantic in 2015. All the car enthusiasts who have been waiting for a commercial cargo van with a four wheel drive really got enthusiastic with Mercedes-Benz’s latest launch.

The base Mercedes Benz 4X4 Sprinter that has got 3.0 liter V6 turbocharged engined can give forth 188 horsepower and can fairly run on road with a mileage of 20 miles per gallon, and for the converted Cramper, the figure is anything in between 14 to 18 miles per gallon. Apart from this fact, they even claim the model to be the lightest in the entire line.
