Snoozefest: The 6 dullest cars in America

Jeep has made incredible strides in the last couple of years. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the finest SUVs at any price, and the upcoming Cherokee (despite the furor over its looks) is going to shake up the compact SUV market.
The Patriot, on the other hand, is an achingly boring vehicle. It’s boring to drive, boring to sit in, and boring to look at, with relatively few redeeming qualities other than its bargain-basement price tag.
I was shocked to learn that Lincoln still sells the Navigator. Its current platform is based on the F-series trucks, and it dates back to 2007. Full-size luxury SUVs obviously took a haymaker to the breadbasket during the economic downturn, and not a whole lot has been invested in any of the vehicles that make up this class, but the Navigator feels crusty and tired at this point.
