The 1968 DeVille saw the installation of a power-oriented front seat with horizontal adjustment and the addition of illuminated door panel reflectors. There were richer appointments inside and out, including the traditional rear fender Tiffany-like scripts and plusher upholstery trims.

The biggest news however was the introduction of a new 472ci engine - the largest in the industry at the time. It was thoroughly tested with Cadillac putting some 500,000 miles on one. Though not as fuel efficient, it did offer more power and better performance.

With revised looks and better performance, the DeVille saw an increase in production over the previous year.
