Dodge Sprinter

BASE PRICE RANGE: $39,800-$48,300*

WHAT'S NEW: Thanks to the use of a 3.0L common-rail turbodiesel with aftertreatment, the Sprinter meets 2010 federal emissions standards. Engine also provides more power (up 31 to 185) and torque (up 45 to 325) than last year. Other news: trailer-sway control was added to the ESP, hill-start assist is now standard.

COOL FACT: During MT's recent Best Driver's Car event, a Sprinter 2500 served as a generator for the test equipment, running 12 hours each day.
