2003 Oldsmobile Alero - Price Quote

Visit Oldsmobile for more information on the Oldsmobile Alero .

The very successful 2003 Oldsmobile Alero offers various choices to the vehicle consumer. Excellent styling, good value for money and a plush offering of standard features and optional add-ons have resulted in a winning combination that has made the Alero Oldsmobile's top seller in North America.

Available Models
The 2003 Oldsmobile Alero is available in a couple of incarnations with a 4-door sedan and a 2-door coupe while the various trim-levels include the base GS, the GL1, GL2 and GLS (Sedan).

Interior Features
Air conditioning, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an AM/FM/CD player are standard and welcome comfort features in a climate that is getting hotter every year, while front bucket-seats and a tachometer convey a sporty feel that will satisfy those who want it.

Meanwhile, power door locks and steering are standard contributions to comfort at the base trim level GS model. On the GL1 powered windows, mirrors and driver's seat adjustment are also included but the GLS has the all-leather upholstery and a 6-way power driver's seat.

Exterior Features
The GLS also has some exterior detailing upgrades with polished alloy rims to enhance the look and style of this already popular compact car. But that is not to say the other trim levels have skimped on style and comfort

A great selection of major options packages are also available to tailor your 2003 Oldsmobile Alero to your own needs and desires. The Sun and Sound Package includes a stereo upgrade and power sunroof. The Sport Package adds both performance and detailing components but these are just two of many possibilities.

The true distinction between the different models are under the hood. A strong 140 hp 4-cylinder 2.2 litre engine powers the GS and GL1 models with 150 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. These both have a choice between 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions.

On the GL2 and GLS models, a more powerful 3.4 litre V6 has a whopping 170 hp 4800 rpm that produces 200 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. To control this significant increase in power these two models have a variety of mechanical attributes: traction control, sport suspension and a rear spoiler.

Safety and Security
All models of Alero come with dual-front airbags and daytime running lights. The more powerful V6's come with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes a new addition from last year.
