The good news in 1952 at DeSoto was that they still offered their solid Powermaster six-cylinder engine. The more exciting news; however, was the introduction of their Fire Dome V8! This really was a big deal, since it had been several decades since you could get a factory eight-cylinder engine in a DeSoto. A lot of the excitement was due to the fact that their new Firedome featured hemispherical combustion chambers. Looking back, it’s easy to see that these engines were blazing thrilling new trails for what was to come in the muscle car era.
Whichever engine and model you chose for your distinguished DeSoto, you certainly had a fine automobile. Throw in the fact that these cars also boasted handsome body styling and you were all set to get in and go out cruising in style and comfort. As good as they were in 1952, there was also plenty to celebrate at DeSoto in 1953 as that year marked their 25th anniversary.
