The first thing one notices about the heavy-duty Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis is its impressive size. At 95 inches tall and 20 feet in length, it simply towers over other lesser vehicles and its powerful presence alone dominates everything in sight.
Its imposing hulk correctly suggests the incredible power it possesses with a payload capacity of 6,400 lbs. and a towing capacity of almost 4 tons. Indeed, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis is a capable machine and can be depended on to handle even the toughest task.
Imagine what an expert customizer such as RENNtech can do to this already overpowered base model. According to Bernie Glaser, Vice President of Mercedes-Benz Vans in the USA, Mercedes-Benz’s collaboration with RENNtech to create the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Extreme resulted to a “super-strength, unlimited hard-working capability and an aggressive design.”
Extremely versatile, the Sprinter 3500 Cab Chassis is an excellent platform for a variety of final configurations such as buses, ambulances and RVs. Muscle to carry a best-in-class payload of up to 6,400 lbs and towing capability of 7,500 lbs is provided by its powerful 4-Cylinder BlueTEC diesel engine working perfectly with the highly efficient 7-speed “7G-TRONIC” transmission.
The Sprinter Cab Chassis can likewise comfortably seat three people seating abreast. Versatility with any upfit is possible due to the flat, lightweight frame rails design and numerous options for wiring configurations. Depending on your particular need, there are two wheelbase options available, 141 inches or 170 inches.
If you need more upfitting customizations, you can order the Cab Chassis as a “Cutaway” which comes with a back wall and roof. Or you can opt for the RENNtech-customized Sprinter Extreme variant, which showcases RENNtech’s expertise in customizations being a long-time partner of Mercedes-Benz.
In this variant, the vehicle’s front morphs into a more aggressive look with a roof rack that supports six forward-facing lights and additional lights at the sides. Completing the meaner look is a brush guard with fog lights as well as a powerful winch behind the bumper.
Accentuating its rugged and more powerful character, the Sprinter Extreme is higher than the base model thanks to a suspension lift package. The Extreme’s ability to handle any road condition is apparent in its six G-Class-inspired beadlock wheels fitted with off-road tires showing its aggressive stance.
Additional suspension travel and tire clearance are made possible by fabricated custom rear fenders. Exhaust stacks done in chrome and visually prominent vinyl wraps are located on either sides of the cab, completing the design enhancements. With a Scattolini ScattoMaax “Tipper Bed” installed, the Sprinter Extreme is transformed into the ultimate work machine capable of performing in different situations.
This bed is capable of dumping payload in excess of 5,200 lbs in three directions – left side, back or right side – giving a boost to the flexibility of the platform. This unique addition is available as part of the MasterUpfitter program offered in the Sprinter Extreme.
The Scattolini ScattoMaxx Tipper Bed is a perfect complement to the Sprinter Cab Chassis, both have proven their reliability and durability under extreme working conditions. In addition, the cargo bed is designed to be an additional barrier between passenger and payload, offering that extra layer of protection for maximum safety and peace of mind.
This makes the Sprinter Extreme one of the most versatile commercial vehicles with a greater payload capacity than most half-ton trucks around. Among the 55 MasterUpfitters currently enrolled with the Mercedes programs, Innovative Vehicle Solutions (IVS) is the exclusive supplier of ScattoMaax Tipper Beds in the US.
