Dodge Sprinter Mega Roof

A Dodge Sprinter stands tall among its competitors with many specifications that are best-in-class, plus some features that are exclusive to this versatile vehicle. While American consumers are quite familiar with full-size vans, the German-built Sprinter itself remains a bit of a novelty. Not exactly exotic, but certainly out of the ordinary.
