1948 Hudson Commodore


The major innovation of the Hudson line was the "step-down" design. Unlike traditional body-on-frame construction which forced passengers to climb up to enter their vehicles, Hudson designers placed the passenger compartment down inside the chassis. A sturdy perimeter frame encircled the passenger compartment. As a result, Hudson passengers stepped down into the car. The result was a low center of gravity and enhanced road holding.
