Johnson Controls Innovations Featured In The 2013 North American Car And Truck Of The Year

PLYMOUTH, Mich., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Automotive products from Johnson Controls, a global leader in automotive interiors, electronics and the world's leading supplier of automotive batteries, are featured in the award-winning 2013 North American Car and Truck of the Year (NACTOY), the Cadillac ATS and Ram 1500.

The winners were announced during a news conference held recently at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

For General Motors' Cadillac ATS, Johnson Controls is supplying the just-in-time seat assembly, including the complete seat, foam and trim. The luxury leather seats include heat and ventilation, cushion thigh extender, lumbar adjustment and four-way adjustable headrest, as well as touch feedback to warn if the driver unexpectedly departs a lane. In addition, the company provides the headliner, overhead console, rear parcel shelf and HomeLink ® wireless car-to-home technology. Johnson Controls powers the Cadillac ATS with its advanced absorbent glass mat (AGM) battery, which is designed for robust cycling performance.

For Chrysler Group's Ram 1500, Johnson Controls supplies the just-in-time seat assembly, including the complete seat, metal, foam and trim, as well as the instrument panel, door panels, hard trim, floor console and HomeLink. The company also makes the battery to power the Ram truck.

According to the NACTOY Organizing Committee, the winning vehicles were selected by a jury of 49 automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who represent magazines, television, radio, newspapers and websites.

The awards are designed to recognize the most outstanding new vehicles of the year. Jurors evaluate the vehicles on factors including value, innovation, handling, performance, safety and driver satisfaction. Vehicles up for consideration must be new or substantially revised for 2013 and be available for sale in North America.
