Cargo Capacity

This is, of course, the single most important variable to consider when shopping for a cargo van. Both the Mercedes-Benz and the Ford renditions are available in a variety of lengths and heights, but the Sprinter has the largest overall capacity with 15 cubic metres. That is significantly more than the max capacity in the 2017 Ford Transit, which is 13.8 cubic metres.


When your van is full of your most important gear and the roads are slick and wet, you want your cargo van to perform as confidently as possible. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Van is available with four-wheel drive in many of its configurations, while the Ford Transit is only available with ear-wheel drive.


You want the vehicle you drive on a daily basis to be as comfortable and convenient as possible. That’s why the Sprinter Cargo Van comes standard with a rear sliding door that requires less clearance, a wood cargo floor that enhances stability, and 270-degree-opening rear doors. It also comes with technology like hill start assist to help you get going when on an incline and a five-speaker stereo. The 2017 Transit comes with a hinged side door, standard rear doors, a metal floor, few driver aids, and a two-speaker stereo.
