The 1974 DeVille received a wide eggcrate with dual round headlamps mounted close together in square bezels. Rear fendersides were flatter without the elliptical bulge. The rear end had vertical bumper ends with the taillight built in.

Coupe DeVilles were no longer hardtops, instead sporting large wide "coach" windows giving a thick center pillar look.

A special edition DeVille was available for both Coupe and Sedan, the D'Elegance. A "see-through" standup crest for the hood immediately identified the car from other DeVilles. The cars received special "d'Elegance" script that appeared on the sail panel behind the quarter window. Inside, the cars were treated with two-toned Mardi Gras - available with matching leather. Other features included deluxe door pads trimmed in Mardi Gras, storage pockets, and deep-pile carpeting.

Output saw a drop in power to a now SAE rated 205 hp.
