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.
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.
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
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
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.
