Default 2019 Amazon Spec Cargo Van at Nashville Sprinter

Nashville Sprinter has one of the 2019 Amazon Spec'd cargo vans for sale. Definite stealth-camping potential.

The datacard indicates Amazon customer code Z3A and Dusseldorf origination. A few special options related to PRO CONNECT fleet tracking. Up-charge for color Amazon code 7769, which is a special grey darker than the standard blue-grey or graphite grey.

Lots of pictures posted by dealer, including three of the window sticker. No cargo door handles? No cargo compartment lights? Are these not important items for a delivery van?

I'd buy it if there were a couple windows on the sides, cruise control, aux battery and roof rails. I do like the color.

What do you think “Residual Heat Circulation” is?


Cheers,

Greg,

I am curious about your question. Will you elaborate?

Also, “1 Touch Down?”

Does that mean we win?

REST system...electric water pump circulates hot coolant and dash fan blows air for a while after key is turned off?

When the engine is off and after it was run, if you press the REST button on the dash, the heater and coolant recirculating pump will turn run and until the coolant reaches lower temperature or max. time limit.

"Residual heat circulation" is/was "standard" on US-delivered T1N Sprinters ... a button labeled REST on the AC panel.

The theory is: you turn off the engine ... the coolant is still warm.
You push REST and it starts an electric circulation pump and kicks the cabin fan on at speed 1 (you can dial up higher).
It then runs for 15 minutes, extracting the "residual heat" from the coolant/engine block.

Quite comfy.

I wonder how many of these will start showing up at dealers since Amazon never bought many/any of them. They only got Mercedes to build them for them to be leased through their partners. Amazon is a mighty force in any market. Just look at what they did to get their new headquarters in New York and Virginia.
