2019 Sprinter Factory Tour & Test Drive
Adventure Wagon was excited to attend the Mercedes Sprinter 2019 Debut event in Charleston, South Carolina last week. We were able to crawl all over various soon-to-be-released Sprinters and check out how the changes might affect our Modular Interior System. While there are many great new options and features, it appears at first blush that our system can be updated for the new model without significant changes. Driving the new Sprinter was a highlight of the day as the level of leading-edge technology packed into these vans exceeds most luxury cars including 360-degree cameras, automatic braking, giant touch-screen, and much-improved HVAC controls. The action-packed day also included a tour of the new Sprinter assembly plant with robots spinning, sparks flying, and new vans rolling through. It's still coming up to full speed, but they expect to employ 1300 people building Sprinters in the US by 2020. That's a lot of vans getting ready to go adventuring!
