The 2007 Sprinter is powered by a new standard 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel that delivers 154 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. An optional 3.5-liter V6 makes 254 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. All models are equipped with a standard five-speed automatic transmission.

Dodge said all models of the Sprinter get standard 16-inch wheels and standard rack-and-pinion power steering with a new height- and tilt-adjustable steering wheel. The automaker said new sliding cargo doors and rear doors have been developed for numerous versions of the '07 Sprinter. It also features a new "mega-roof" option that provides up to 7 feet of interior height. It comes with either fixed or opening skylights.

New standard features include power windows and locks, integrated wide-angle mirrors, halogen headlights, CD/radio and an adaptive electronic stability program. Upgraded options include a six-disc CD changer and hands-free telephone systems.

The exterior includes the signature Dodge crosshair grille and a selection of 20 exterior paint colors, which Dodge says is the largest variety available in the segment
