The 2009 Dodge Sprinter Wagon is Dodge's full-size van, and it emphasizes passengers and cargo more than the full-sized vans from GM and Ford. Translation: All hints of styling have been sacrificed for passenger and cargo space. While most reviewers like the 2009 Dodge Sprinter Wagon for its capabilities, they are generally disparaging—or, at the least, quiet—about its appearance.
Kelley Blue Book says diplomatically, "the 2009 Dodge Sprinter isn't likely to win any beauty pageants"; however, they also note "real attractiveness in its efficient design." While not as picturesque in its description, Car and Driver is also less than complimentary, remarking the "flat cargo floor and vertical side walls make it a box on wheels." Edmunds asserts 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."
"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." 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." Car and Driver simply calls the interior "Spartan."
