Ford Crowned North American Car and Truck of the Year 2010

The Fusion Hybrid and the Transit Connect by Ford have been named the North American Car and Truck of the Year respectively at the 2010 Detroit auto show. It has only been three times in the past that a single company has won both awards.

This was pretty much what everyone expected as the Fusion Hybrid got a hands up for its super attractive styling, including its advanced powertrain, and stellar fuel efficiency (it is rated at 41 mpg city / 36 mpg highway). It easily left behind the Buick LaCrosse and Volkswagen Golf/GTI.

To everyone’s surprise the Transit Connect won the North American Truck of the Year. It was quite an upset for many as the Transit Connect faced kinda stiff competition from the likes of Chevrolet Equinox and Subaru Outback, but still it won even though it being a commercial-oriented vehicle.

A panel of 49 automotive journalists selected the winners at the Detroit auto show from a huge list of contenders which included “all-new” and “substantially updated” models.
