There’s no such thing as too much safety. That’s why we’ve made every effort to ensure that the Sprinter offers drivers, passengers, and cargo a high degree of protection. At the forefront of this is the Electronic Stability Program ADAPTIVE ESP® which takes into account the vehicle load and adjusts accordingly. When vehicle loads vary during the course of a trip, sensors determine the current load level, enabling ADAPTIVE ESP® to perform its precisely measured stabilizing procedures.
In order to increase handling safety when towing a trailer, ADAPTIVE ESP® functions for the Sprinter include ESP® Trailer Stability Assist. If the trailer starts to sway, the system counteracts these movements to help the driver stabilize the vehicle/trailer combination. ESP® Trailer Stability Assist is activated automatically if a trailer hitch is fitted at the factory. It can also be activated by your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter dealer after retrofitting a trailer hitch to the vehicle.
