That's 7 horsepower and 22 pound-feet more than the inline five-cylinder that was the sole engine choice for most of the Sprinter's time here (before the 3.0-liter six arrived) – a powerplant buyers liked enough to give the Sprinter a toehold in our market."
What's the plan at FR now that the standard engine in 2014 will be a 161 hp four banger?
