2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

The Monte Carlo is a veteran of the roadway that steps up each year to deliver a modern set of capabilities with sport-inspired styling. Cousin to the successful Winston Cup racer, the street version of the Monte Carlo has that added jump that allows it to stand out from the competition. Quick out the gate, the acceleration of the 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo continues even at high speeds. With a fine blend of interior and exterior styling features, the package of the Monte Carlo can be said to check off all the points on any customer's wish list for two-door coupes.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is offered in an LS model and an SS model. While the LS model covers all the basics, the SS is a slightly sportier in its look and feel.

Interior Features
The 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo seats five, with two comfortable bucket seats up front and a split folding rear bench seat in the back. The LS has a nice list of standard features, including air conditioning with dual-zone manual climate controls, interior air filter, power steering, cloth upholstery, power mirrors, windows, and door locks, remote keyless entry, AM/FM/cassette, digital clock, tachometer and outside-temperature indicator. The SS adds cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls and illuminated visor mirrors fog lights.

The options list addresses interior comfort with an AM/FM CD player, XM Satellite Radio and the convenient OnStar system. For people who just can't kick the habit, an optional Smoker's Package is available, which includes an ashtray and lighter.

Exterior Features
The 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo's distinct look is a result of its long sloping hood, short rear deck and distinctive "C" pillars. SS models feature a rear spoiler, 225/60SR16 performance tires and alloy wheels.

Performance is a main feature that the Monte Carlo has always offered. 2003 sees no change in this policy. The LS model features a 3.4-liter V6 engine that offers 180 horsepower at 5200 rpm. SS models step up to the plate with a confidence that results from the 3.8-liter V6 under the hood, which pumps out 200 horsepower at 5200 rpm.

The 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is also good on gas mileage. 21/32 mpg (city/hwy) is the rating for the LS model, while the SS engine offers 20/30 mpg (city/hwy). Both models have 4-speed automatic transmission.

Safety and Security
Since the 2000 model year Monte Carlo has met all 2003 government occupant protection standards, and recently received a 5-star rating for driver and front passenger protection in frontal crash tests. Dual front airbags are standard on both models. The SS has standard antilock brakes, which are an option on LS models.
