Mercedes-Benz opened a new factory in North Charleston, S.C., on Wednesday and provided pricing and other details about the Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter commercial vans that will be manufactured there.

The U.S. version of the all-new 2019 Sprinter van and sibling Freightliner Sprinter model includes the first-ever gasoline model. The vans are equipped with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder engine or the new 2.0-liter gasoline engine. The new vans will also have a new generation of safety features, updated interior and exterior designs and increased storage options.

The Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX, a new bundle of connectivity services and navigation software, will be offered in both Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter models. MBUX is based on artificial intelligence and can be operated by voice control, touchscreen, touchpad and touch-control buttons on the steering wheel. With natural language capabilities it will respond to verbal cues of “Hey, Mercedes” or “Hey, Sprinter.”
