2003 Chevrolet Astro Overview

The 2003 Chevrolet Astro saw an expansion of the model line, adding a new bargain, no-frills base trim package. Design elements were refreshed, including 16-inch wheels on all trim packages - steel on the base model and aluminum on the LS and LT versions. A new all-disc antilock braking system became standard on all trims.

With seating for eight passengers, the '03 Chevy Astro has a roomy interior. Front bucket seats and two bench seats are the standard configuration; for the LT, buyers can choose bucket seats for the second row. Leather upholstery is also available on the LT.

The 2003 Astro is a sturdy midsize minivan based on a rugged truck platform. Some consumers complain that it rides more like a pickup than a passenger van; others appreciate its high clearance and stiff suspension.

Under the hood of the '03 Astro, you'll find a 4.3-liter V6 engine that puts out 190 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque. That's a healthy amount of power, but it definitely comes at a price: The 2003 Chevy Astro has an EPA fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city, 22 mpg highway.
