Ford has new bragging rights for two of its vehicles. The Ford Fusion has been named the 2010 North American car of the year.

The midsize sedan took the top honor at the Detroit auto show Monday.

The annual honor is based on a vehicle's innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value.

It was a double honor for Ford. The Transit Connect compact van won truck of the year.

It's only the third time in 17 years that one automaker has won both awards.
