The Sprinter Extreme Concept

Sprinter Extreme concept has super strength, unlimited capability

It's big, stretching over 20 feet from end-to-end. It's over 95' tall. It knows how to haul, wîth 6,400 lbs. of payload capacity and a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs. The heavy-duty Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis is a powerhouse ready to take on the toughest tasks. Now, wîth the help of RENNtech, the Sprinter Extreme has transformed into the ultimate work machine concept.

'The Sprinter Cab Chassis is the most capable heavy-duty vehicle in its §egmènt,' said Bernie Glaser, Vice President of Mercedes-Benz Vans in the ÚSA. 'The Sprinter Extreme concept has super-strength, unlimited hard-working capability and an aggressive design. Únlike most concepts, the foundation for the Sprinter Extreme can be ordered at a Mercedes or Freightliner dealership today wîth the help of our MasterÚpfitter program.'

Sprinter 3500 Cab Chassis: A heavy-duty platform ready to take on any taskFrom the factory, the Sprinter 3500 Cab Chassis is incredibly versatile, providing an ideal platform for busses, RVs, ambulances and box bodies, just to name a few. Equipped as standard wîth a powerful 4-Cylinder BlueTEC diesel engine combined wîth an efficient 7-speed '7G-TRONIC' transmission, the Sprinter Cab Chassis has a best-in-class payload capacity of up to 6,400 lbs. and can tow up to 7,500 lbs. The Sprinter Cab Chassis can not only haul a tremendous payload, it can also transport three people, wîth its available three-abreast seating.

The Sprinter 3500 Cab Chassis is the ideal starting point for any upfit project wîth its flat, lightweight frame rails and numerous factory wiring options. Two wheelbases are available to choose from—144 inches or 170 inches—ensuring that the Sprinter Cab Chassis can meet any upfitting need. Further upfitter customization is possible by ordering the Cab Chassis as a 'Cutaway,' available without a back wall and roof.

RENNtech completes Cab Chassis customization; makes Sprinter Extreme

Long-time Mercedes-Benz customizer RENNtech added numerous touches to the Sprinter Cab Chassis in order to bring it from mild to wild. Starting at the front, a custom roof rack was built to support six forward-facing lights while additional spotlights are positioned on the sides of the roof rack. A custom brush guard complete wîth additional fog lights and a powerful winch are located beneath the Sprinter 3500's front bumper.

A suspension lift package raises the Sprinter Extreme above six G-Class-inspired beadlock wheels and aggressive off-road tires. Custom rear fenders were fabricated to provide additional clearance for suspension travel and tire clearance. Finishing off the Sprinter Extreme's look is an eye-catching vinyl wrap and chrome exhaust stacks situated on either side of the cab.

Scattolini ScattoMaax 'Tipper Bed' transforms 3500 Cab Chassis into ultimate work machine

The Sprinter Extreme concept has also been equipped wîth a Scattolini ScattoMaax
'Tipper Bed' for expanded capability in a variety of environments. Available as a part of the MasterÚpfitter program, this unique bed is already available to customers and allows the Sprinter Extreme to dump over 5,200 lbs. of payload to either side or to the rear. This three-way tipping capability provides added flexibility to an already convenient platform.

Made out of high-strength steels and alloys, the ScattoMaax Tipper Bed is as tough and reliable as the Sprinter Cab Chassis. The unique ScattoMaax cargo bed design provides an extra barrier of protection between the passenger compartment and the payload, ensuring safety and ease-of-mind, even over rough terrain. The end result of this upfit solution: an incredibly versatile, hard-working commercial vehicle wîth a payload capacity greater than nearly all half-ton trucks currently on the market.

Innovative Vehicle Solutions (IVS), one of the 55 MasterÚpfitters currently enrolled in the Mercedes program, is the exclusive supplier of ScattoMaax Tipper Beds in the Únited States.

Safety first!

Standard Load-Adaptive ESP® (Electronic Stability Program) ensures that even when the Sprinter Extreme Concept is loaded to maximum capacity, stability is able to be maintained, even on slippery surfaces. By taking the vehicle load and center of gravity Page 3 into account, ESP automatically brakes individual wheels and reduces engine power to stabilize the vehicle if wheelspin, understeer or oversteer is detected. ESP is standard across the Sprinter product lineup.
