Interesting. Thanks Jon.

I just noticed that DaimlerChrysler.com is redirected to Daimler.com. I wonder what the Freightliner Sprinter will be called now. Daimler Sprinter?

Good one Jon
Have you any clue as to what the logo will look like State-side? In reflection It will be interesting to see how management implements the changes and it's directions within the next 18 months.???
Here is a little info from Daimler AG.

Logo: I haven't seen anything to indicate there'd be a different one from HQ in Germany....

daimler-sprinter, daimlersprinter - and other permutations that came to mind - are still available at this writing, meaning they aren't locked in by anyone.


The fl-sprinter.com domain registration info was updated recently, and Sprinter.Com is not available....

Sprinter.com has not been available for a long time. I think the days of locking a web address so that companies have to pay you for the name is long gone.

I think dodge.com was registered by some firm unrelated to Dodge vehicles. They were actually using it and not just parking it for money. Dodge, the car company, was using 4adodge.com at that time.

I remember typing dodge.com one time and saw a disclaimer saying that they (Dodge, not the car company) are now not permitted to use the web address dodge.com. Fast forward to now, 4adodge.com redirects to dodge.com.

It's very similar to what's going on with nissan.com
