2003 Ford ZX2 - Price Quote

Visit Ford for more information on the Ford ZX2.

Above all the else, the 2003 Ford ZX2 is affordable. It is designed as a budget sporty coupe for people who need a reliable vehicle at a low cost. Value doesn't mean shoddy construction however, as the 2003 Ford ZX2 is given enough performance features to make it no slouch on the road. The engine is strong and efficient, offering good fuel economy and low emissions. And with a varied selection available, customers can stick with the inexpensive basic configuration or add on the features with uplevel models.

Available Models
The two-door 2003 Ford ZX2 coupe is offered in three models: Standard, Deluxe and Premium.

Interior Features
The 2003 Ford ZX2 has enough room for four people. The standard reclining front bucket seats are new-and-improved for 2003, featuring unique diamond-stitched inserts. Standard models offer power steering, cloth upholstery, power mirrors, AM/FM/cassette, digital clock, tachometer, rear defogger and more. The Deluxe adds air conditioning, tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, AM/FM/CD player, map lights and floormats, while the Premium has power windows and door locks and remote keyless entry.

There is also a good selection of optional equipment for owners to add to their ZX2 if they so desire. Premium owners can deck out the interior with leather upholstery, while both Premium and Deluxe owners can throw on a power sunroof.

Exterior Features
The ZX2's front fascia is given fog lamps for a more aggressive look for 2003. Adding to the overall sleekness of the design are color-coordinated polycarbonate front and rear bumpers and solar-tinted, flush-mounted glass. The ZX2 is also equipped with a rear spoiler and 15-inch wheels to give it that extra mark of cool.

The ZX2 gets you from point to point time and time again thanks to its quiet, industrious motor. All models are equipped with a 4-cyl 2.0-liter engine that gives out 130 horsepower at 5300 rpm and 135 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. 5-speed manual transmission and 4-speed automatic are both available. With value and the environment in mind, both transmissions provide good fuel ratings. 5-speed manuals get 26/33 mpg (city/hwy), while 4-speed automatics get 25/33 mpg.

Safety and Security
Safety is designed right into the frame of the ZX2. It has a "safety cell" construction, which manages impact energy to help enhance occupant protection. Carefully engineered crumple zones allow specific sections of the vehicle's body to deform progressively, diverting energy away from the occupants. Tough steel structural members and side-door intrusion beams aide in side-impact protection. In addition, antilock brakes are offered as one of the available add-on options.
