Ford, the only U.S. automaker to avoid taking government funds during the financial crisis, has been on a roll lately (we apologize for the bad pun). At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Ford CEO Alan Mulally is promoting the company's new Sync technology, which brings Internet connectivity to new vehicles. Among other things, the new features will include iPhone-like apps for your dashboard.
And in bold fashion, Mulally predicted that Ford will turn a strong profit in 2011, which will likely be fueled in part by its explosive growth in China, where sales soared 44 percent in 2009. In the past year, Ford's stock has been on fire and has been one of the top performing stocks in the S&P 500.
Helped by smart -- and timely -- borrowing in 2006, Ford has been able to stay afloat while its Detroit competitors have largely floundered. Mulally, who took the helm at Ford in 2006, has been adamant that his company won't continue to make the mistakes that have long plagued American car companies.
