There's a NEW POWER PEAK in the Low-Price Field

YOU may be one of nearly a million motorists personally familiar with the brilliant action of the Super-Six power plant. If so you may find it hard to believe that this superbly powerful, smooth and quiet engine—the first high-speed, high—compression motor of modern times — could be "stepped up" in power beyond even its own former high. Yet here is the result, of controlled high compression, finer machining, more accurate balancing — full seventy horsepower at 3200 r. p. m. That means it will take you out and away at 50 miles an hour in silent second gear. It will step along in high coolly, quietly, smoothly, as far as you like, in Selective Free Wheeling or out, at upwards of 70 vibrationless miles per hour. And the new 1932 Essex Super-Six engine will attain — and maintain — these new power peaks on ordinary gasoline. High—compression performance at no premium cost for fuel! The new 1932 Essex Super-Six will do these things, which no rival in the low-price field can match for ease or economy, because the power to do them is engineered and built into its "power-dome" high-compression cylinder head its silicon-aluminum pistons its patented compensated crankshaft, inherently balanced and vibration-free. And this new super-abundance of power in the 1932 Essex Super-Six is given a correspondingly striking setting in the longer, lower lines, the roomier and more luxurious bodies, and the many fine-car innovations which make this new Essex the unparalleled value in the low-price field today.

The lower-priced Standard Series was introduced in May 1932. The four Standard models had less trim than the Pacemaker models, but shared the 113" wheelbase chassis and inline Six engine.
Hudson's Essex Terraplane replaced earlier Essex range in July. Famous woman pilot Amelia Earhart came to Hudson Motor Car Co. for its christening. Prices started at a low $425.
