Nicely written article.
It will certainly be a winning option for many, though i must ask myself...

If it is already near-improbable that an on pavement breakdown/must-fix-event happens without an MB fix-it shop within a ~100-200 mile radius?? Now i can be further up-a-creek/forestry road for things to go like they seem to on the MB chassis. WhoooWhoooo. Waiting in a hotel for the fancy Euro4x4 to be fixed puts a whole new meaning on "Adventure".

I luv the idea...but on a Ford or Chevy for me.

Just a rebel at heart i suppose,
Thom

now that is pretty awesome, what a way to improve the sprinter.

now imagine if we were to add like 6 turbo's to it, imagine how fast it would go!

It certainly ups the capability of the Sprinter a bit by making it a 4x4. Not for me, but I'm sure there are many others that will be happy that they have this option. I'm thinking of outdoors type people, or maybe winter sports activities.

I don't need a 4x4 van at this point, but if I did, I'd probably go with a Quigley conversion over the stock Sprinter.

Price would probably be similar or a bit higher, quality similar or better, and serviceable at any Ford dealership. My friend has a diesel Quigley E350 and it's a dream. They do REALLY good work.

Interested to see how much this option will cost...

I would guess it'll be well out of my price range, but an interesting option. I would like to have 4wd. Plenty of times the "parking/camping" area turns into a mud pit due to rain down here and then there are trips to CO where it would be really nice...
