Making Use of the Sprinter Towing Capacity

If your new Sprinter Van did not come pre-equipped with a trailer hitch and a tow bar, you can add these components to your build by placing an order with our parts department. If you’d like to have it installed in-store, all you need to do is schedule service

Since precise capacities and limits will vary from configuration to configuration, you should always carefully review the information in your owner’s manual before hooking up a trailer. The total combined weight of your vehicle, passengers, cargo, and trailer must come in below your vehicle’s Gross Combined Weight Rating, which can also be found in your owner’s manual. 

Since towing can take a toll on your vehicle, find out how to care for your model by reviewing the Sprinter Van maintenance schedule with our team. 

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Payload Limits

Although you can certainly hook up a trailer when you need to move heavy cargo, your Sprinter has a large cargo area that can accommodate plenty of weight on its own. Although precise payload capacities will vary depending on your chosen configuration and its curb weight, the maximum payload limits for each Sprinter body style are as follows:

Sprinter Van Payload Capacity

  • Sprinter Cargo Van – Up to 6,823 pounds
