About Dodge Sprinter
The first generation (VA Chassis) North American Sprinter was introduced in the United States in 2001 as a Freightliner. Units sold in the rest of North America were labeled as Mercedes-Benz until 2003, when they were rebranded as Dodge. Beginning in 2003, Dodge and Freightliner units could be purchased in the United States and Canada, but not in Mexico. DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC, a small division based in Huntersville, North Carolina, launched and supported the product. The majority of the division was made up of key individuals from the DaimlerChrysler Commercial Vehicle Division and Freightliner Trucks. DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC was solely responsible for the North American Sprinter market until sales, service, and parts support were taken over by Chrysler Commercial Vehicle Division in 2004. The majority of the original staff was retained, though the headquarters moved from North Carolina to Auburn Hills, Michigan. The remainder of DaimlerChrysler Vans LLC remained active in Huntersville as a Sprinter engineering, upfitter certification, and safety compliance resource.
DaimlerChrysler introduced a Dodge-branded Sprinter to the North American market in 2003. Except for minor styling and badging differences, it was identical to the Freightliner Trucks version. DaimlerChrysler chose the Sprinter to replace the aging Dodge Ram Van, which had used the same basic body and layout since the 1970s and was discontinued in 2003.
Cargo van versions of the Sprinter were manufactured in Düsseldorf, Germany, then partially disassembled and shipped to Gaffney, South Carolina, where they were reassembled. If imported as a complete unit, the cargo versions, classified as light trucks, are subject to a 25% chicken tax, which is avoided by disassembly and subsequent reassembly. Passenger vans were imported as an assembled unit through Mercedes-Benz in Jacksonville, Florida, and were not subject to the same tax classifications.
This model’s cargo version is reassembled at a plant in Ladson, South Carolina that was formerly an American LaFrance factory. The passenger version, like its predecessor, is imported as a complete unit. Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation continues to use the previous reassembly facility in Gaffney, South Carolina.
