The 1953 Cadillacs saw yet another power bump up from 190 hp to a now impressive 210 hp. One of the fastest cars on the road for that day.

On August 12, a fire at the Hydra-Matic transmission factory in Livonia, Michigan broke out and would halt production of the Cadillac transmission with some cars being produced with the Buick Dynaflow transmission. Approximately 19,000 Cadillacs were sold with the this transmission commonly referred to as Twin Turbine.

Even with slower production, sales were up approx. 30%.
