working for you.

freightliner sprinter van history 1995
  • 1995 The first-generation
    Sprinter Van launches in Europe.

  • 2001 The Sprinter Cargo Van and Sprinter
    Passenger Van models officially launch in
    the United States under the Freightliner
    brand.

Freightliner was founded in 1930 with one mission: help workers get the job done. Pretty simple. Since then, we’ve become North America’s leading medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicle manufacturer. Today, Freightliner continues to lead the way with the introduction of the 4x4 Freightliner Sprinter — once again helping you get an edge on the competition.
