Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2014 New look and enhanced security
Mercedes-Benz Canada is pleased to announce the official end of the Arctic Expedition of the Sprinter. The shipment of 5,300-km begins at Edmonton, Alberta, January 22, 2013, then across northern British Columbia and the Yukon to Alaska penetrate and go beyond the Arctic Circle in borrowing some of the roads the most dangerous continent before ending in Anchorage (Alaska) January 30, 2013.
The shipment has given the opportunity to auto journalists everywhere across Canada and the United States lead the Sprinter vans from Mercedes-Benz in some of the most picturesque parts of the continent while putting test vehicles has in some of the harshest weather on the planet.
Perfectly adapts to countless profiles use in any environment, the convoy of vans and combis 9 Sprinter faced the worst of Mother Nature angers throughout the course. In particular, the face of cold starts in freezing temperatures which fell almost 50 degrees Celsius, the icy roads, snowy and distorted by frost, strong winds, fog, ice, temperature fluctuations drastic conditions whiteout and steep mountain passes.
Offering the most energy efficient in its class, the BlueTEC V6 turbodiesel 3.0 L provides exceptional autonomy and confidence to drivers in the convoy in these remote areas or stations are far from numerous. Generating a power of 188 hp and a torque of 325 lb-ft, the engine provides a peak power and outstanding performance in all driving conditions, while distinguishing itself with low noise levels and promoting a great man ? uvrabilite in any circumstance.
Characterized by comfortable interior, a generous equipment series and noise levels in the cockpit that are comparable to those of a passenger car, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter turned out to be a particularly pleasant environment for drivers spent many hours on the road every day.
Sprinter commercial van Mercedes-Benz is a particularly versatile and hardworking vehicle has a stain that can answer countless business needs and industrial needs, and comply with a wide diversity of requirements on the transport. We undertook this ambitious shipment with confidence, knowing that our van is designed to meet virtually any extreme situation where we could be confronted, "said Pablo de la Pena, Director of Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz vans. "Our customers rely on their vehicles, they consider as an integral part of their business, and although most drivers and operators are not called upon to deal on terms as extremes on a daily basis, we are proud the Sprinter has conquered the Arctic and it is also distinguished by exceptional performance in some of the remotest and most difficult that we could face environments. "
All models of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is equipped with a multitude of safety features that include a series of system monitoring tire pressure, front airbags for driver and front passenger airbags protection thorax and curtain air bags optional inflatable proposed, as well as electronic stability program (ESP) peak known as the ADAPTIVE ESP. This sophisticated device is on each series of models of the Sprinter range and helps ensure that the driver was still master of the situation in a variety of difficult scenarios. In addition, it has been fully integrated in the ABS braking system (ABS), control of acceleration skid (ASR), electronic distribution of braking force (EBD), Brake Assist (BAS ) hydraulic, the adaptive control according to the load (LAC) and the stabilizing device of the trailer.
The ADAPTIVE ESP system also includes advanced self-learning algorithm which calculates the mass of the vehicle and its center of gravity based on parameters such as acceleration, speed, position of the accelerator and brake pressure. This allows the system to react more accurately to critical driving situations and allows a more precise braking and on surfaces or friction Regules acceleration of way is not the same on different dimensions of the vehicle. The new ADAPTIVE ESP device has increased functionality also includes limiting the risk of rollover (ROM), intervention in case of roll (RMI) and control understeer improves (EUC).
The function of limiting the risk of reversal (ROM) of the detected high critical lateral forces in turns and reacts by reducing engine torque and increasing brake pressure at the appropriate wheel. The role of intervention in case of roll (RMI) increases the effectiveness of ADAPTIVE ESP through intervention on the engine and braking in certain situations such as dynamic maneuvers of sudden avoidance, while the control understeer improves (EUC) contributes to enhance stability during understeer importantly making sure the front of the vehicle deviated less outwards in curves or when cornering greenhouses at high speed.
