I actually asked my dealer last week as I was in for the 20K service - he believes in 2015 as they need to stay competitive to the new Ford coming (4x4 would be an options others don't have). I am on the CT/NY border and 4x4 would be a great option to have!

K-9 Sprinter - Just saw your user name. The license plates on my Sprinter are K9-BUS

I have been told too many times "next year". Heard it in 2007, 2010, now they say 2015. The rest of the world can buy genuine 4x4, standard transmission with a locking center differential, we cannot get AWD...
This has nothing to do with anything other than CAFE standards with the operative word "Corporate". MB has to raise the average and 4x4 will lower it..hence the 4 cylinder to raise, with a "maybe" 4x4 which will lower it.
I have owned 6 MB's in my life, pretty good bet another Sprinter (I have owned 3 Sprinters) will not be #7. I do love the cars, they just can't seem to get it together with the Sprinter.
Sorry, EOR.
