Used Chevrolet Silverado - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Silverado.

The biggest and baddest of the bunch, the 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 is a monster of a truck. If you've ever seen Jurassic Park, you surely remember the earth-shaking stomp of the Tyrannosaurus Rex as it bears down on its prey. Step inside the 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 and you'll get a taste of what the T-Rex must have felt. All analogies aside, this large pickup is given a super-strong construction and a wealth of power to handle years and years of work, and it goes about its business without even a whisper of complaint.

Available Models
The one-ton 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 is available in regular cab, extended cab and crew cab sizes, each with an eight-foot bed. In addition, a chassis cab is also available on the regular, extended and crew cab sizes. Base LS and uplevel LT models are available across all versions.

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 a number of standard interior features, including 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) add 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 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 has an added traction control feature with standard dual rear wheels. With these 'dualies' in place, the 3500 simply looks ready to go.

There are three engines available that fit inside these beasts, each varying in power and performance ability. 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. 2WD and 4WD configurations are available, while a handling and trailering package comes standard. 5-speed manual transmission is the base configuration, though 4-and 5-speed automatic and 6-speed manual are all optional.

The additional engines are a Vortec 8.1-liter V8 that produces 340 horsepower at 4200 rpm and 455 lb-ft. of torque at 3200 rpm and a Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V8 with 300 horsepower at 3100 rpm and 520 lb-ft. of torque at 1800 rpm.

Safety and Security
The 2003 Silverado 3500 cab 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.
