Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

BASE PRICE RANGE: $35,500-$73,000*
BODY TYPE: Full-size Van

WHAT'S NEW: The Sprinter now wears the three-pointed Mercedes-Benz star on its grille -- unless, of course, it's sold as a Freightliner (part of the Mercedes family). A Crew Van that seats five is new for 2011. The 2500 receives a restyled instrument cluster. Otherwise, everything remains the same, including the excellent turbodiesel and smooth transmission.

COOL FACT: Standing height inside the Sprinter can be as high as 6 ft, 4 in.

SUM UP: Big, versatile full-size van.
RATING: ****
