The off-road Sprinter is fitted with Benz's five-speed automatic transmission. While this sees the engine spinning at just under 3000rpm at 100km/h - 2200rpm for Sprinters fitted with the seven-speed automatic – the transmission is better suited to lower speed work and off-road inclination. Properly equipped and regardless of engine, a Sprinter 2500 can tow up to 5,000 pounds and a 3500 can tow up to 7,500 pounds. The Sprinter's payload is similarly impressive.
The 416 at the 250,000km point started to give a loud knocking noise from the engine. I was told by Merc that the injectors needed replacing (despite running a fuel additive from day 1) so they were replaced for over $3500. The noise was still there, just as loud.. they then wanted me to leave it with them until they could work it out.
