2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

In comparison to the regular length 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer, the EXT has more than a foot tacked on to its wheelbase (129 inches). This results in more interior space, which the EXT uses to add a third row for a total of seven-passenger seating. The 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT is at home on the road and off it, as comfortable carrying families around as it is hauling heavy goods. It also handles well, ensures safety, and, like all Chevy trucks, rests upon a strong tradition of dependability.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT comes in a base model and a North Face Edition, which includes a number of special features designed for the outdoor enthusiast.

Interior Features
The four-door 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT has an abundance of room in its cabin. There is more than 22 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third seat, while the second and third rows can be folded flat to provide 100.2 cubic feet of cargo space. There are plenty of standard features to make any trip enjoyable. Rear air conditioning and heater with rear controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, 8-way power driver seat, heated power mirrors, remote keyless entry, rear defogger, overhead console, universal garage-door opener and digital memo recorder are just some of the features on the list.

The interior of the new North Face Edition is decked out with North Face seats, mesh map pockets, liftgate lighting, an underfloor storage cargo liner, heavy-duty floor/cargo mats and special North Face duffel bags and blanket. Not stopping there, manufacturers offer an entire set of options packages and individual upgrades.

Exterior Features
The exterior of the North Face Edition features lower accent-color body cladding, body-colored outside rear-view mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, an adjustable cargo shelf with a table, running lamps, a liftgate luggage rack, headlamp washers, B-pillar badging and a clothesline.

The upgraded engine on the 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer adds more power and meets or exceeds all sound requirements. The EXT shares the same engine as its smaller brother, offering the Vortec 4.2-liter/ 256-cu. inch I6 with 275 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 275 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. Four-wheel drive is available with all Trailblazers.

Like the regular Trailblazer, the EXT handles exceptionally well with its combinations of five-link rear suspension, independent, double-A-arm front suspension and hydraulic power-assist rack-and-pinion steering. Unlike the regular Trailblazer however, the EXT offers an engine upgrade to a Vortec 5300 5.3-liter/ 325-cu. inch V8 with 290 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 325 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm.

Safety and Security
All 2003 Trailblazers are given a comprehensive safety package with four-wheel vented disc antilock brakes with front aluminum dual piston calipers and dual-stage front airbags. The brakes use an advanced system of 12 specially tuned body mounts to isolate road inputs and noise, limiting vibration and harshness on any surface.
