The 1968 Mexican Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at the Hermanos Rodriguez Autodrome on November 3, 1968. It was the twelfth and final round of the 1968 Formula One season.

This race was to determine the 1968 Formula One Drivers' Championship, contested between former BRM teammates, Britons Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart; and New Zealander Denny Hulme, who was the defending champion. The race was moved back a week so as not to clash with the Mexico City 1968 Summer Olympics, which ended on October 26. Hill won this race and his second Drivers' Championship, Hulme retired with suspension problems and Stewart fell back to 7th after a number of problems with his Matra-Ford.
