The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
3.5
5.2
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. For buyers who don’t need four-wheel drive in their large commercial van, the 2018 Ford Transit offers a huge range of options and configurations.
