The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
3.5
4.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a commercial van in a gap year—a new van is on the horizon and the old version is pared down to its essentials. The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan may boast a storied nameplate, but this minivan is way behind the times.
