2003 Chevrolet Silverado - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Silverado.

The Chevy Silverado 2500HD adds an extra set of heavy-duty capabilities to the already able 2500 model. The result is an extremely rugged full-size pickup truck that is made for work, while also offering passengers and drivers a nicely laid out interior filled with standard features to ensure their comfort. However, as its name suggests, this big pickup is constructed first and foremost with labor in mind, including towing, hauling, and transporting the heaviest loads in the toughest conditions.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is available in regular cab (with an 8.1-ft. long box), extended cab (with an 6.5-ft. short box or long box) and crew cab (with either the short box or long box) body sizes. In addition, a chassis cab is also available on the regular, extended and crew cab sizes. LS denotes the base model, while the LT is considered the uplevel model.

Interior Features
The regular cab seats two/three passengers (two-door), while the four-door extended (back half-doors) and crew cabs (full back doors) seat up to six. LS models are equipped with the following standard features and then some: air conditioning with dual-zone manual climate control, power steering, tilt steering wheel and vinyl upholstery. Uplevel LT models (not offered with the regular cab) provide the OnStar system, leather upholstery and heated front buckets seats.

OnStar is a communications and assistance service designed to provide drivers, at any time, with access to live, personalized service and emergency assistance at the touch of a button. As just part of the system, customers can use OnStar for hands-free personal calling or can have e-mail read to them.

Exterior Features
The Silverado looks tough and it acts tough. When you see a 2500HD model rolling down the road, you know it means business. The aforementioned cargo bed sizes provide plenty of diversity in terms of the pickup's exterior dimensions.

Understanding the varied needs of its customers is the mark of a good company, and Chevrolet is nothing if not in-tune with its pickup owners. With this in mind, they offer a number of different engines for the 2500HD series. The base engine is a Vortec 6.0-liter V8 with 300 horsepower at 4400 rpm and 360 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Of course, 2WD and 4WD configurations are available, and a handling and trailering package also comes standard - anything else would be a shock. 5-speed manual transmission is the base configuration, though 4-and 5-speed automatic and 6-speed manual are all optional.

There are two engines to upgrade two. The first is a Vortec 8.1-liter V8 that produces 340 horsepower at 4200 rpm and 455 lb-ft. of torque at 3200 rpm. The second is a Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V8 with 300 horsepower at 3100 rpm and 520 lb-ft. of torque at 1800 rpm. If these guys can't get it done, you really are in trouble.

Safety and Security
The 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is equipped with dual front airbags, a power Hydro-boost brake-apply system (four-wheel disc, four-wheel antilock brakes) and daytime running lights. The airbag system features a passenger-side deactivation switch on regular and extended cab models to protect small occupants.
