Convenience Features

The new Sprinter and Transit were designed first and foremost for utility. Take a closer look, however, and you’ll notice that the Sprinter comes standard with several thoughtful features that are either optional or unavailable for the Transit. Some of these features include:

  • 270-Degree-Opening Rear Doors: Compared to the Transit Van’s standard 180-degree-opening rear doors, the Sprinter Van’s rear doors offer greater flexibility during loading and unloading.
  • Interior Standing Height: While the regular wheelbase, low-roof Transit Van’s cargo height measures in at 56.9 inches, the interior of the 144-inch wheelbase, standard-roof Sprinter Cargo Van is more accommodating at 66.5 inches.
  • Daytime Running Lights: Daytime running lights—an optional feature for the Transit—increase the Sprinter Van’s visibility to others on the road, boosting safety during daytime driving.

Dimensions & Capacities

When it comes to cargo, payload, and towing capacities, both vans are among the top performers in their segment. Comparing the Sprinter vs. Ford Transit, however, showcases a clear winner:

  • Cargo Area: In the Transit lineup, the max cargo volume—542.2 cubic feet— belongs to the long extended-wheelbase, high-roof Transit Van with its front-passenger seat removed. The extended-wheelbase (170 inches), high-roof Sprinter Cargo Van brags a massive 530-cubic-foot cargo area and still seats up to three passengers.
  • Payload: The Transit 350HD (148-inch extended with 3.5L engine) wows with its max payload capacity of 4,650 pounds. Still, the Sprinter Cargo Van with a 170-inch wheelbase, high roof, 11,030-pound GVWR outdoes the Transit with a max payload capacity of 5,077 pounds.
  • Towing: Depending on the configuration, the Ford Transit can tow up to 7,500 pounds. The Sprinter Cab Chassis matches the Transit Van’s max towing capabilities.
