The third generation of Hudson Super Six was introduced for the 1933 model year. The third generation Super Six was only available for 1933 and was largely a version of the Essex, an entry level brand and model created by Hudson. As Hudson was phasing out Essex, the third generation Super Six was sold as a bridge before the introduction of Terraplane as Hudson's lower placed brand. The third generation Super Six was powered by a 3.2L inline six engine. Hudson would not use the Super Six name after 1933 until 1940, when they introduced the Fourth Generation Hudson Super Six.
