2003 Chevrolet Suburban - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Suburban.

Larger and mightier than the ½-ton, the ¾-ton 2003 Chevrolet Suburban adds a stronger engine for even more transporting and towing power. For families that are more like baseball teams in size, the 2003 Chevrolet Suburban is designed with passenger convenience and driver satisfaction at the head of its list of priorities. And it certainly achieves this goal, combing comfort, brawn and safety in a tidy, though large, package.

Available Models
The ¾-ton 2003 Chevrolet Suburban is offered in two models: LS (base) and LT. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations are both available.

Interior Features
The four-door 2003 Chevrolet Suburban has enough interior space to seat nine passengers. 2003 Suburbans have a new electrical architecture that results in a 'smarter' vehicle. The instrument panel and cluster have been redesigned to accommodate this increased processing power. Also new is a dual-zone manual-control heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Additional standards include cruise control, 6-way power front seats, remote keyless entry and an AM/FM/CD player.

New Bose sound systems are optional, giving the cabin concert-like sound quality. An available rear-seat entertainment system that includes a DVD player with a flip-down screen will keep the kids occupied for hours. These features are only part of the options list, which also includes the digital XM Satellite Radio system.

Exterior Features
The Suburban's exterior mirrors are little feats of engineering. They feature power-tilt glass and power folding to protect them in narrow spaces; heating elements that clear frost, snow or ice; left-side electrochromatic glass that dims glaring headlights; puddle lights; new turn signal indicators in the glass and a memory feature. A new, optional power-adjustable camper mirror can be extended to a vehicle width of as much as 106 inches.

For the 2003 Chevrolet Suburban, new oxygen sensors provide enhanced durability and reduced emissions during engine warmup. The ¾-ton Suburban adds a beefier V8 engine in comparison to the ½-ton model, which is capable of 320 horsepower at 5000 rpm. A battery rundown protection feature automatically turns off the headlamps, park lamps and interior lights after 10 minutes if left on inadvertently.

Customers looking for added power and handling can opt for the available engine upgrade and Quadrasteer. The engine is an 8.1-liter V8 that dishes out an impressive 340 horsepower at 4200 rpm. Quadrasteer uses all four-wheels, turning the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front wheels for tight turning in low-speed parking maneuvers.

Safety and Security
As always, safety is a primary feature of the Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban comes with standard four-wheel disc, four-wheel antilock brakes featuring dual-piston calipers with Dynamic Rear Proportioning and dual-level airbags with a passenger-sensing system.
