PLANO, Tex.--Product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions from Siemens PLM Software have served as key enablers in the development of two award-winning Ford Motor Company vehicles: the Ford FusionTM Hybrid and the Ford Transit ConnectTM. The vehicles were recently named 2010 North American Car of the Year and Truck of the Year, respectively--only the third time in 17 years that one automaker has won both awards. It's the second consecutive year that Ford has won the Truck of the Year award; the Ford F-150 won the 2009 North American Truck of the Year award. Separately, the entire Ford Fusion lineup captured the Motor Trend® Car of the Year award for 2010.
