The 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara. It's the Vitara
mode. Whether you're in mall-approach or in the mood for
a little off-road, the Grand Vitara will serve you effusively.
Suzuki has completely re-styled the cabin this year, so
read on to take a peek. Rugged, powerful, and confident
are just some of the words that may pop to mind when experiencing
the driver's seat of the Grand Vitara.
The 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara offers two 4-door power-packed
trims: JLS or LTD. Choose 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive
to complete the package.
Settle into the 4-wheel drive LTD trim and prepare to stay
a while: air conditioning, micron air filtration system,
leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power tilt-and-slide
sunroof, power windows, locks and mirrors, AM/FM stereo
with in-dash CD player, heated front seats, heated mirrors,
tilt steering wheel, cruise control, cargo cover, and below-seat
storage bins (big inhale). If you prefer the JLS trim, minus
off the heated leather seats, sunroof, heated mirrors, and
16-inch aluminum wheels. Interior volume: 112.6 cubic-feet.
The rear seat is split-folding so grab a configuration and
load it up.
Expect nothing less than 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass,
rear wiper/washer, roof rails, front fog lamps, and multi-reflector
This is where the 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara can really blow
your hair back. A generous 2.5-litre V6, 24 valve, quad-cam
engine churning out 165 horsepower @ 6500 rpm and 162 lb-ft
of torque @ 4000 rpm ensures you can accelerate with conviction.
Estimated fuel consumption is 19/21 (city/hwy) mpg on the
5-speed manual transmission, and 18/20 (city/hwy) mpg on
the 4-speed automatic transmission.

four-wheel-drive mode, the Grand Vitara system offers
both high-range and low-range gearing -- a major advantage
over the single-range all-wheel-drive systems offered
on many car-based SUVs. When the terrain demands that
you slow to walking speed -- or even down to a crawl
-- to work your way over a particularly tough section,
the Grand Vitara is happy to oblige with a full set
of low-range ratios that keep the powerful V6 engine
spinning right in the heart of its powerband. So the
wheels keep turning, and you have the best chance
of getting through. Single-range all-wheel-drive vehicles
don't offer this low gearing, so the engine bogs down
at low forward speeds and there may not be the torque
available to keep the wheels turning. In this case,
traction isn't the problem, but available torque at
the wheels most assuredly is. Advantage: Grand Vitara
