Automotive News Europe reported that Daimler R&D chief Thomas Weber confirmed there will be a BRABUS version of the new 453:

The big question: will smart bring the full, high performance BRABUS version to the USA?  They didn't do that with the 451 BRABUS, a huge mistake IMHO.  Now they have the chance to give US smart buyers the complete BRABUS package - let's hope they don't make the same mistake again.

Yes, the crappy power unit of the US/Canada 451 BRABUS was a massive turn-off so it really is necessary to have the full BRABUS powertrain if another BRABUS is sold here.  It would also open up a lot more marketing opportunities, making the car appeal to driving enthusiasts more.
