I know, I know, the headline is an unfair, underhanded jab, an easy-target kick-em-while-they're-down barb directed at a badge that has sadly lost all its former glory. But still— despite the sheer amount of stuff packed into the 2005 Montego, I don't think it can overcome its bland styling, a place where its main rival, Chrysler, is currently succeeding grandly. Commence stats: the Montego will include a limo-like 40 inches of rear legroom, 21 cubic feet of trunk space, a tallish and commanding seating position, an upscale interior complete with fake metal accents, a 200-hp V6, an optional CVT transmission, available AWD from Volvo's parts bin, and the now-commonplace luxury appointments like xenon headlights, LED taillights, 17-inch wheels, traction control, a decent and MP3-friendly stereo, etc., etc., etc., yadda yadda yadda, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
