Default 2013/2014 Sprinter design freshening?

Has anyone heard about a design freshening or a redesign for the 2013 or 2014 Sprinter?

Recently, an MB dealer told me that 2014 will most likely be a new body style change and possibly the AWD. Hope this helps.

Thank you, John

Did he happen to mention the cost of the AWD?

Front end grille and bumper change is definitely on the go,dash board redesign going on Mercedes previous way of doing things with a mid model freshening up, to keep the consumers interest up until July 2016.

Engine changes but for emissions only in The Euro sector, whether that applies to the V6? I have no idea.

4x4: God bless on that one as to a bog standard AWD through to Z5 transfer options plus custom built, which seems to be available only to governments on the latter option..

2016 is the interesting year to go on as to a redesign on ABS: Where the Mercedes MOG 4x4/4x6 and Actros rely on automatic tire adjusting pressures The Sprinter gets a new tire from Pirelli that has a memory reset.Video looks good but technical info vague.

The DPF filter a Mercedes-Benz stop gap measure to cover emissions may go. as indicated by the 4 inline engines EGR water cooling technology being used to assist in elimination of NOX from the tailpipe.

2016 is still a long way off.

Does that mean 2013 or 2014 would be the year for the mid-model freshening? Is your information confirmed with MB?
Thanks.

2013 is the year for an up-face change as to previous years Vito has already had it done and thus the Sprinter follows.
Bare in mind every year something changes on the Sprinters not so much stateside, but that's only because you only have one dedicated model so the changes are small.
An example of the 2013 Sprinter is grille change profile, hood line will be sharper, bumper wrap and side front panel profile changes.rear end likely to to so minor such as badge work or taillight change???

Exactly what is changed is yet for the public to find out, otherwise it wouldn't be secret would it?
Cheers Richard

If I read your Downundlish correctly, we could see a Sprinter that looks closer to a Crafter?

I gotta admit that Vito looks pretty sharp

I just saw the New Ford on the road in Arizona, near the Ford test track.
As much as I want to hang in with the Sprinter the lack of Dealerships is killing me. I just can't do it any more. Driving 2.5 hours one way and back for any service work.

As I climb up in miles I'm going to need more and more service. I just don't have the time to lose a day every time I need something done.
