Minivans are primarily used by families who need to transport
the kids around to school, practice, clubs, and anywhere
else they need to go before they reach the (dreaded) driving
age. Chevrolet realizes that the three most important features
a vehicle of this nature needs to satisfy are safety, practicality
and durability. With these three aims in mind, the 2003
Chevy Venture is presented, offering all of the aforementioned
traits and then some. Throwing a few extra perks into the
mix, the 2003 Chevy Venture stands out in the tough minivan
The regular length 2003 Chevy Venture is joined by an extended
length body size that tacks on more space to the overall
wheelbase. The regular length Chevrolet Venture has front-wheel
drive and is offered in Value, Base, Plus and LS models.
The 2003 Chevy Venture can seat seven people easily, while
certain extended length models add an extra seat for a total
of eight passengers. Versatility and roominess are two noticeable
features that result in the Venture's practical design,
while functional equipment abounds. A convenience center

Getting up to speed no matter how much weight it is carrying
is not a problem for the Venture. Manufacturers have fitted
it with a highly capable engine that does all the rough
stuff. It is a 3.4-liter V6 with 185 horsepower at 5200
rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. A steady 4-speed
automatic transmission shifts gears effortless so you don't
have to. Part of the Venture's value rests in its good fuel
economy, which is rated at 19/26 mpg (city/hwy).
For extra performance and safety, customers can opt for
an all-wheel drive package. This features Versatrak all-wheel
drive, 16-inch aluminum wheels and tires, a fully independent
rear touring suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
Safety and Security
The all-wheel drive package is a useful addition for owners
looking for even more safety features than what is already
standard. Entry-level models are equipped with front disc,
rear drum brakes, dual front airbags and the LATCH system
for child seats. Antilock brakes and side-impact airbags
are standard at the LS model level.
