It is a testament of a vehicle's place in the national
fabric that at the mere mention of its name, one instantly
recognizes its design. This is true of the 2003 Chevy Suburban,
the first veteran of the full-size SUV segment. The 2003
Chevy Suburban retains all the brawn an innovative styling
of famous earlier models, and adds a new set of safety features
and even more creature comforts to increase driving pleasure.
The ½-ton 2003 Chevy Suburban is offered in two models:
LS (base) and LT. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations
are both available.
The four-door Suburban has enough interior space to seat
nine people with ease. The 2003 Chevy Suburban's instrument
panel and cluster have been redesigned to accommodate the
increased processing power of its electrical system. The
Suburban also features a new dual-zone manual-control heating,
ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Additional
standards include cruise control, 6-way power front seats,
remote keyless entry and an AM/FM/CD player.
There are quite a few new, optional infotainment systems,
including new Bose sound systems and a rear-seat entertainment
system that includes a DVD player with a flip-down screen.
These systems feature the next-generation Radio Data System
and can interface with services such as XM Satellite Radio.
The Suburban's exterior mirrors are remarkable in themselves.
They feature power-tilt glass and power folding to protect
them in narrow spaces; heating elements that clear frost,
snow or ice; left-side electrochromatic glass that dims
glaring headlights; puddle lights; new turn signal indicators
in the glass and a memory feature.
The Suburban never has, and never will, shirk its duties
as a high-performance SUV. Inside is a Vortec 5.3-liter
V8 that pumps out 285 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 325 lb-ft
of torque at 4000 rpm. 4 speed automatic transmission takes
care of all the shifting, all the time. A battery rundown
protection automatically turns off the headlamps, park lamps
and interior lights after 10 minutes if left on inadvertently.
Customers looking for added stability can opt for the available
StabiliTrak system, which maximizes handling and braking
dynamics by using a combination of systems and sensors including
antilock brakes, traction control and electronic suspension.
Safety and Security
The manufacturers at Chevrolet take safety and security
very seriously. The 2003 Chevy Suburban comes with standard
four-wheel disc, four-wheel antilock brakes featuring dual-piston
calipers with Dynamic Rear Proportioning and dual-level
airbags with a passenger-sensing system.
