Ford continues to bounce back from the auto industry crisis and was the only member of Detroit's Big 3 to not need government bailout money to do so. This past year, the automaker saw a $3.8 billion increase in net income from the previous year, to a whopping $6.6 billion.

Moving forward, Ford wants to boost its Lincoln brand, which has suffered from disappointing sales. The company also wants to lead the charge toward smart car innovations, enabling vehicles to "talk" or share information with one another. As part of the company's overall smart car agenda, Ford rolled out its "MyTouch" touchscreen technology this past January.

But the automaker's first line of wired cars has received negative reviews from some consumers who claim that the interface is too difficult to use. Perhaps its next version will put the American car company on the right road to the future. --S.D.

Editor's note: Chrysler Group was erroneously omitted from the Global 500 listing. With revenue of $41.9 billion, Chrysler ranks No.205 among all the companies in the world and 61st in the U.S. As a result, Bristol-Myers Squibb, which had ranked No.500, falls off the list. Updates may be found for the full list, rankings by country, and the list of arrivals. Fortune regrets the error.
