The 2003 Chevrolet Astro is one of the original minivans
to take over the American car industry to the point that
they are almost standard equipment for families and commercial
ventures with need for cargo or passenger carrying capacity,
reliability, safety and pure utility. With a classic design,
shared only by the GMC Safari, the Astro meets all these
criteria and then some.
The 2003 Chevy Astro comes with 2-wheel rear-wheel drive
or all-wheel drive (AWD) and has one fully loaded trim level.
The LS seats 8 passengers on two front buckets and two rear
bench seats but there is a cargo version also that is fitted
with only two seats. These minivans are all equipped with
sliding side doors and rear cargo doors that can be replaced
by optional Dutch Doors with independently opening windows.
The 2003 Chevy Astro carrying capacity and versatility becomes
quickly apparent to anyone as soon as they start loading
this big truck-based vehicle. Although the Cargo has slightly
fewer features, it still comes with air conditioning, power
steering, variable intermittent wipers and durable vinyl
floor coverings instead of the standard carpet.
The LS adds significantly to this list. Cruise control,
power windows, door locks, mirrors, a tilt-steering wheel
and floor matssatisfy the needs of the consumer along with
many other interior features. Additional equipment for all
models can be found in the attractive options list, which
includes items like a 6-way power driver seat, a stereo
upgrade and an overhead console with an assortment of functional
displays and information.
On the outside the 2003 Chevy Astro minivan sports a theft-deterrent
system to protect you and your property, 215/70R16 tires
rear privacy glass, swing-out rear side windows and a 6-wire
trailer harness. The many doors and door options make it
very easy to get yourself, your family and your stuff in
The performance profile of the Astro van is pretty impressive.
For example, they all come with a powerful V6 engine. The
4.3-liter power source has a 190hp output that pumps 250lb-ft
of torque at 2800rpm. This will carry and pull heavy items
with little difficulty. The AWD model holds the road with
confidence in inclement weather also, meaning that the Astro
is a comforting vehicle to own when traveling in winter
conditions with your family in the back. The 4-speed automatic
transmission is capable of 15/20mpg (city/hwy)
Safety and Security
Entry-level models are equipped with 4-wheel antilock disc
brakes, daytime running lights and dual front airbags.
