The Sprinter Wagon is Dodge's full-size passenger van. Based on a Daimler design, the 2008 Sprinter Wagon follows a different style that emphasizes passengers and cargo more than the full-size vans from GM and Ford.

While most reviewers like the 2008 Dodge Sprinter Wagon for its capabilities, they are generally disparaging--or, at the least, quiet--about its appearance.

Although Dodge made the 2007 model of the Sprinter Wagon "wider, taller, and longer," Cars.com reports changes in the 2008 version "are comparatively minor." The only mention of appearance is that the front grille of the Sprinter "incorporates the Dodge Ram logo."

Edmunds says that the Sprinter's "radically sloped front end, long wheelbase and tall body make it look like a good Adam Vinatieri kick could knock it over." While not as picturesque in its description, Car and Driver is also less than complimentary, saying the "flat cargo floor and vertical side walls make it a box on wheels."

Kelley Blue Book says diplomatically, "the 2008 Dodge Sprinter isn't likely to win any beauty pageants"; however, they also note that "there is real attractiveness in its efficient design."

“The Sprinter holds an advantage in regards to interior design,” Edmunds observes. “Its new dashboard and steering wheel angle have been greatly improved over its predecessor.” Car and Driver, however, calls it “Spartan,” while ConsumerGuide notes the Sprinter’s “simple and logical control placement, though reaching some less-used switch gear requires a stretch. Sprinter's clearly marked gauges are easy to read at a glance.”

Conclusion

The 2008 Dodge Sprinter Wagon values function over form—any form.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
