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."

The video may be viewed on Winnebago Life (winnebagolife.com) or at http://bit.ly/1Ig08P5.
