Winnebago Video Highlights Mercedes Chassis Test Drive
Side by Side Comparison of I-4 Turbo-Diesel and V6 Chassis Offerings
.FOREST CITY, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/05/15 -- Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE: WGO), a leading United States (U.S.) recreation vehicle manufacturer and the world's #1 manufacturer of Mercedes Sprinter-based motorhomes, is releasing a new video today highlighting a test drive comparison between the V6 Mercedes chassis versus the new in-line four-cylinder I-4 turbo-diesel Mercedes chassis.
WinnebagoLife editor Don Cohen conducted and recorded the real-world test drive through the Colorado Rockies to demonstrate the fuel efficiency and benefits of both the Mercedes chassis options. "Don has done a great job of highlighting the benefits of both chassis through challenging mountain terrain, while showcasing the additional fuel economy the I-4 affords," said Winnebago Product Manager Russ Garfin. "Winnebago is the first and currently the only North American manufacturer to build Class C motorhomes on the new in-line I-4 chassis. Our internal testing corroborates Don's results and Mercedes' own estimates of up to 18% gains in fuel economy. We are very pleased to provide our View, Navion and Era customers with another great chassis offering."
