2003 Dodge Stratus Coupe - Price Quote

Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Stratus Coupe.

The Stratus coupe is the flashy brother of the Stratus sedan. While the latter is more reserved and introverted, the coupe is every bit a showoff. It has plenty of power and attitude, plus a new muscular exterior design that leaves no doubt as to its intentions.

The 2003 Dodge Stratus coupe can back up its bark with a pretty fierce bite. Customers looking for a speedy two-door should certainly check it out. Take a stroll down to your nearest dealer, at least if just for a test ride, where more often than not you'll come away impressed.

Available Models
The 2003 Dodge Stratus coupe is offered in two trim levels: SXT and R/T.

Interior Features
Even with two doors, the 2003 Dodge Stratus coupe still seats five, though three adults might find the back a tight squeeze. These vehicles are primarily built for high adrenaline adventure. However, they certainly don't sacrifice comfort on the inside. The Base SXT is filled with a list of convenience features that make rides as relaxing as they are fast. Air conditioning, an AM/FM radio player with an in-dash 4-disc CD changer, cruise control and power mirrors, windows and door locks top the group.
With the uplevel R/T trim, the following features are added on top of the already healthy amount found in the base trim: a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, remote keyless entry and an Infinity sound system.

Exterior Features
The new look of the 2003 Dodge Stratus Coupe features all-new front and rear fascias, grille, headlamps, taillamps, fog lamps and side sill moldings. In addition, there are new hood and trunk lid designs and a new grille with chrome inserts.

These vehicles really sell themselves with their performance. The SXT model has a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 158 lb-ft. of torque at 4000 rpm. There is quite a jump in power as you step up to the speedy R/T. It is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that churns out 200 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 205 lb-ft. of torque at 4500 rpm. With both models, both 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmission are available.
2003 Stratus Coupes are not only fast, they are quiet as well. A single-piece bodyside aperture and increased use of sound-absorbing materials all help dampen wind and road noise.

Safety and Security
For safety and security, the 2003 Dodge Stratus coupe offers driver and front passenger airbags, side airbags, side impact bars in the doors and a rear seat center shoulder seat belt, as well as available side curtain airbags. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and upper Tethers for Children) child seat anchorage system is also included.
