The North American Truck of the Year is... The 2010 Ford Transit Connect! Congrats, @Ford. Retweeted by SiemensPLMThen, there was the we-own-the-auto-world* press release from France's Dassault Systemes:
...CATIA was utilized in the design of the 2010 North American Car of the Year -- the Ford Fusion Hybrid -- and Truck of the Year -- the Ford Transit Connect.

*) The head and subhead of their press release read, "CATIA-Designed Vehicles Continue to Take Over the Road: Virtually 80% of World Debuts at 2010 Detroit Auto Show Designed in Dassault Systemes Flagship Software."
It is good to know that Dassault considers CATIA as its flagship software. What with all that yadder about PLM over the last many years, I'd've gotten the impression CAD no longer was of interest.
