Mercedes-Benz vehicles for commercial use

Did you know that Mercedes-Benz makes all-terrain vehicles that can be used around the world in a variety of climates? That’s right, we don’t just sell high-end luxury and performance vehicles to our valued customers. At Mercedes-Benz Kitchener-Waterloo, we make it our mission to inform the public about new Mercedes-Benz prototypes, concepts, and other different types of vehicles that you may have no idea even exist. In this blog, we talk about a few Mercedes-Benz all-terrain vehicles that are used in tough and rugged places around the world. For all-terrain: the Vito 4×4 and Sprinter 4×4 all-wheel drive vans. Powerful mobility: the 4ETS technology from Mercedes-Benz offers superior traction, driving stability, and braking for the Sprinter and Vito.

These vehicles are equipped for the most difficult conditions

Whether slippery surfaces or steep declines, you can always rely on the Sprinter 4×4 and Vito 4×4 all-wheel drive vans. Even steep tilts and extremely high passes are no obstacle at all for the two vans from Mercedes-Benz. Commercial use demands excellent traction where jobs involve muddy construction pits, uneven terrain, snow, and ice. Yet the Sprinter 4×4 and the Vito 4×4 remain effective and safe even under difficult conditions. While the all-wheel-drive Sprinter is the uncontested innovation leader among the 3.5-tonne vans, the Vito is actually the only mid-size van available with permanent all-wheel drive. The 4ETS traction control is fully integrated into the ADAPTIVE ESP electronic stability program. 

The Vito 4X4

The Vito 4×4 is equipped with permanent all-wheel drive, enabling it to handle even the most difficult conditions. With manageable dimensions, highly dynamic handling and agility, the van is exceptionally flexible and responsive. The Vito 4×4 adapts to the situation and provides optimum traction within milliseconds. The drive technology of the Vito 4×4 is based on a rear-wheel-drive with a converter automatic transmission and electronically controlled power distribution. The technology is closely related to the all-wheel-drive systems in Mercedes-Benz cars. If one or more wheels lose traction, the 4ETS brakes the wheels individually and distribute the power to the wheels with good traction. The system delivers the same effect as three differential locks.

The Sprinter 4X4

The Sprinter 4×4 also demonstrates its capabilities on any terrain: the all-wheel-drive system can simply be activated as needed. Pressing a button in the cockpit is all you need to do and the 4ETS electronic traction control takes over. The driver only needs to steer and carefully control the power. The Sprinter 4×4 effortlessly handles even extreme mountain ascents. The optional Downhill Speed Regulation DSR is also activated via a button and maintains a constant speed when driving downhill. Faster or slower? The driver controls the speed using the cruise control lever.
