The Mercedes-Benz 3500 Chassis: What Makes Your Grech RV Stand Out

Welcome to the ultimate road experience with Grech RV. Today, we showcase the solid foundation behind our exceptional RV models—the Mercedes-Benz 3500 chassis. This chassis isn’t just a part of our vehicles; it’s the very essence that sets Strada and Terreno apart in the world of Class B motorhomes.

 

A Journey through Time: The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has revolutionized the market since its introduction in 1995. As the first model to replace the older T1 Transporter van, the Sprinter set new benchmarks with its aerodynamic design and advanced positioning of the engine, which expanded cabin space significantly. This model boasted a 120 hp diesel engine, the most powerful in its class at the time, and was the first to receive a name instead of a numerical designation, marking its unique status. It also introduced critical safety features like four-wheel disc brakes with an antilock braking system, which helped it earn the International Van of the Year award in 1995. Updates in the early 2000s, including electronic stability control, continued to enhance its capabilities.

 

Strategic Expansion and Continued Innovation

The Sprinter’s expansion into North America in 2002 under the Freightliner and later Dodge brand was strategic, broadening its appeal in the robust commercial vehicle market while maintaining Mercedes-Benz’s image. This move included updates like the transition to the OM647 engine to meet stricter CARB emissions standards. With the launch of the second generation (NCV3) in 2006, the Sprinter introduced even more customization options, repeatedly winning Van of the Year awards. The third generation (VS30), which debuted in 2018, continued this trend of innovation by introducing a front-wheel-drive option and electromechanical power steering, ensuring the Sprinter remains at the forefront of both commercial vehicle technology and luxury motorhome design.
