A mainstay in the competitive compact sport-utility segment,
the Chevrolet Blazer must be doing something right to have
lasted so long. And indeed it has, mixing the type of performance
SUV shoppers expect with more practical safety and convenience
features that are less flashy, but obviously just as necessary.
With improved emissions, the 2003 Chevy Blazer is given
a more responsible side to go along with its tough, hard-working
The 2003 Chevy Blazer is offered in an LS model with either
two or four-doors, and a sporty Xtreme model. The Xtreme
model has two doors and takes the attitude level up a few
Two-door Blazers offer five-passenger seating, while four-door
LS models add an extra passenger. LS models have an interior
that comes with such standard features as power steering,
air conditioning, cloth upholstery, cupholders, split folding
rear seat, AM/FM/CD player, digital clock and tachometer.
An LS convenience package adds cruise control, tilt steering,

While Xtreme models really differentiate themselves with
their exterior look, they also have a few unique interior
features as well. Deep-tint windows and a leather-wrapped
steering wheel head the list of standards, while a range
of different audio systems are available, including an in-dash,
six-disc CD changer.
The exterior of the Xtreme is designed to justify the model's
name, and it certainly does. Among the standouts that achieve
this are P235/60R16 Eagle LS low-profile tires, deep-dish,
five-spoke aluminum wheels, lower front fascia with fog
lamps, wheel flares, body-colored grille, bumpers, lower
cladding and flares and special "Xtreme" badging.
LS models offer 2WD and 4WD configurations, while the Xtreme
comes with 2WD only. The engine across both models is a
highly capable Vortec 4300 4.3-liter V6 with 190 horsepower
at 4400 rpm and 250 lb-ft of torque at 2800 rpm. 4 speed
automatic transmission is standard with four-door LS models,
while 5-speed manual transmission is optional with two-door
LS models only. Xtremes offer both transmission types.
The Xtreme has Z87 Sport Suspension to handle the bumps
on the road. LS models, on the other hand, come with Z85
sporty/firm suspension to accommodate a variety of driving
