Used Chevy Tahoe - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Tahoe.


There isn't an automotive company out there that produces as comprehensive a line of rugged vehicles as Chevrolet. Its combination of pickups and SUVs is unmatched. Consistent throughout the lineup is an adherence to the principles of performance, durability and safety. Stepping right into the fold with all of these traits, and then some, is the 2003 Chevy Tahoe, a sport-utility vehicle with incomparable ability. After all, it is the best-selling full-size SUV in the country.

Available Models
The 2003 Chevy Tahoe is offered in two models: LS (base) and LT. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations are both available.

Interior Features
The four-door Tahoe offers comfortable nine-passenger seating. Like 2003 Suburbans, 2003 Tahoes have a new electrical architecture that results in a 'smarter' vehicle. Likewise, the instrument panel and cluster have been redesigned to accommodate this increased processing power. To keep everyone inside the spacious cabin happy, manual rear air conditioning is standard. Additionally, rear electronic climate control is available, providing second-row passengers an automatically controlled temperature setting independent from that of the front.

The options are aplenty with the 2003 Chevy Tahoe. Chief among them is a passenger DVD system, which consists of a DVD player, an overhead screen, two wireless headphones and a remote control. Other options include the OnStar system, an in-dash 6-disc CD changer and XM Satellite Radio.

Exterior Features
The Tahoe is almost as big as its cousin Suburban, though it has a slightly shorter wheelbase of 116 inches. Two new exterior colors are available for 2003: Sandalwood Metallic and Dark Spiral Gray Metallic.

Performance
The Tahoe can pull as much as 7,700 pounds when properly equipped. The standard engine is a 4.8-liter V8 with 275 horsepower at 5200 rpm. 4 speed automatic is the transmission of choice. For more power, LS model owners can upgrade to a 5.3-liter V-8 with 285 horsepower at 5200 rpm, which is standard on uplevel LT models.

For more stability, StabiliTrak is an enticing option. An advanced system, StabiliTrak intervenes when it senses one or more of the wheels slipping, loss of lateral traction or understeer or oversteer difficulties. For off-roaders, a Tahoe Z71 model is available with specially tuned off-road suspension, specific shock absorbers and jounce jumpers with standard stabilizer bars.

Safety and Security
StabiliTrak is a significant safety feature that can be added to the 2003 Chevy Tahoe. However, the standard package is quite thorough in itself, as it includes four-wheel disc, four-wheel antilock brakes featuring dual piston calipers with Dynamic Rear Proportioning, dual-level airbags with a passenger-sensing system and the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) child-seat system.
