Amazing!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I had a 2002 1500hd crew cab but I got t-boned and I needed a new truck, the 02 was the best truck I have ever had but when I found this 03 I was so happy! I think the 2002 was a little more comfortable but other than that everything is amazing! Took it out to South Dakota pheasant hunting and the 4wd got us through snow drifts that were over the hood! It's so much fun to drive, I think the front end reminds me to much of a car, but I'm gonna put a new hood on it so yeah. We also pull a 20 ft deep v ranger boat with it and it doesn't even know its back there, and my uncle pulled it with his Ford f250 and said he struggled so yeah, go Chevy!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Very happy with this truck. It did everything I needed it to do. Had no problems towing anything, and very steady on the road. Felt very safe on the highway. Very reliable. Lots of room in front and back seats. The only issue with this truck was the fuel economy.

This is the best truck I have ever owned. It has tons of power and as a farmer I like that it has the HD frame, engine and tranny. It rides comfortably when loaded down with haybales, has plenty of power to tow my 20 stock trailer and plenty of power to pull 26,000lb anhydrous ammonia tanks. It has been the most reliable truck I have driven as well, every time I twist the key it has fired right up and is ready to go to work. It has plenty of room inside for my family, tools, hound dog and me. This is a truck that is actually built to be used as a truck.

What's New for 2003

The Silverado gets a makeover this year that includes a new front fascia and revised side moldings and taillights. Up-level LT models get power-folding heated mirrors with puddle lamps and turn signal indicators. On the inside, the Silverado offers new entertainment options, such as a Bose audio system with rear-seat controls, XM Satellite Radio and a DVD-based entertainment system. The instrument panel and center console have been redesigned, and Chevrolet has added new seats, a more comprehensive driver information center and a dual-zone climate control system. For increased safety, Silverados now feature a standard front-passenger-sensing system that deactivates the airbag for children. On the hardware side, the all-new Quadrasteer four-wheel steering system, which increases low-speed maneuverability and towing stability, is now optional. The standard 6.0-liter V8 gets electronic throttle control, as well as the ability to run exclusively on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or a mix of CNG and gasoline.
