The 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab and crew cab
join the regular cab configuration to complete the wide
variety of full-size Silverados available in the half-ton
weight class. Offering more seating than the regular cab,
these two cab sizes are perfect for families who want a
full-time pickup truck that can also handle passenger transportation.
With their blend of power and interior comfort, the extended
cab and crew cab configurations of the 2003 Chevy Silverado
do just that.
Extended cabs come with rear-hinged back doors, while crew
cabs have four full doors. The extended cab offers more
bed sizes, with a 6.5-ft. flare-fender Sportside Box, a
6.5-ft. Fleetside Short Box and an 8.1-ft. Fleetside Long
Box available. All crew cabs have the Fleetside Short Box.
Both cabs come in three model trims: base, LS and LT.
With a rear bench seat, both the extended cab and crew cab
can seat up to six passengers. Base models are equipped
with air conditioning with dual-zone manual climate control,
power steering, tilt steering wheel, vinyl upholstery, AM/FM
radio, engine-hour meter, trip computer and a functional
cargo-box light. LS models throw in cruise control, AM/FM
CD player, carpeting, outside-temperature indicator, compass,
overhead console, power windows and door locks and remote
Top-line LT models have extra comfort with the OnStar System,
leather upholstery, heated bucket seats and a Bose AM/FM
radio with in-dash 6-disc CD changer. Not bad for a pickup.
In addition, both LS and LT models offer an optional rear-seat
DVD entertainment system.
Two new exterior colors are available for 2003: Dark Gray
Metallic and Arrival Blue. The 2003 Chevy Silverado's front-end
has been redesigned, giving it a smooth appearance to compliment
the brawn under the hood.
There are enough engine configurations with the 2003 Silverado
1500 to make your head spin. The extended cab short box
offers a 4.3-liter V6 with 200 horsepower. The extended
cab long box has a 4.8-liter V8 with 270 horsepower, and
the extended cab with a Sportside box comes with a 5.3-liter
V8 with 300 horsepower. The crew cab boasts a 6.0-liter
V8 with 300 horsepower. 4-speed automatic is the transmission
As far as engine upgrades go, with the purchase of the
LT model, all extended cabs are given the 5.3-liter V8 engine.
Without the LT, owners can still upgrade their extended
cab engines to the aforementioned 4.8-liter V8 or the 5.3-liter
Safety and Security
