Though updated only modestly since its 1999 freshening, this rather primitive rear driver continues to tally surprisingly strong sales.
The base model's 3.8-liter V6 generates more noise than power.
The 4.6-liter V8s are much stronger and more in character with the car.
Unfortunately, only the top-of-the-line SVT Cobra version gets an independent rear suspension.
The manual transmission feels neither slick nor sporty.
