Used Chevrolet Silverado - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Silverado.

The 1500HD and SS are two incomparable Silverado models designed for rugged use. The HD is a heavy-duty model with an extra hard-working set of abilities, while the SS is a new model that pushes high-performance to the next level. The SS stands for 'Super Sport,' and as one would expect from Chevrolet, the Silverado SS comes off the production line as an extremely confident pickup with adventure on its mind. Pushing the Silverado's power up a few notches, these two specialized models excel in their given areas of expertise.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500HD comes in 2WD and 4WD configurations. The SS is offered in only one model, with all-wheel drive part of its standard sport package. The 1500HD uses a crew cab configuration, with four full doors, while the SS has an extended cab's two rear-hinged back doors.

Interior Features
With a rear bench seat, both the 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500HD and SS can seat up to six passengers. The 1500HD is built for hours and hours of work, and with this in mind manufacturers have laid out a comfortable interior in which to pass the time. Air conditioning with dual-zone manual climate control, power steering, vinyl upholstery, AM/FM radio, engine-hour meter, trip computer and a cargo-box light are all part of the standard package.

The new SS is no ordinary Silverado. While this is especially so with regard to its ability, it also holds true in terms of its appearance. Its custom interior is a Dark Charcoal color and is equipped with leather bucket seats with special "SS" embroidered headrests. As usual, both the 1500HD and SS offer a nice list of optional enhancements for the ride.

Exterior Features
Both models have a 6.5-ft cargo bed. The SS is truly a distinguished pickup with an aggressive stance, monochromatic color scheme and specially styled aluminum wheels. The Silverado SS is offered in Black, Arrival Blue Metallic and Victory Red.

These two models certainly know how to perform. The 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500HD is equipped with a 6.0-liter V8 engine that is perfect for the job. With 300 horsepower at 4400 rpm and 360 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, it has plenty of muscle.

Like a rambunctious puppy, the SS always wants to go out and play. It is given an LQ9 version of the 6.0-liter V8 found on the 1500HD, providing an impressive 345 horsepower at 4400 rpm and 380 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. A standard full-time, all-wheel-drive (AWD) viscous-coupled transfer case provides exceptional on-road, wet or dry pavement handling, while an improved high-performance chassis package translates into great cornering ability.

Safety and Security
The 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500HD and SS are both given standard antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, dual front airbags and daytime running lights. The Quadrasteer four-wheel steering system is another feature available on 1500HD models that improves handling to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
