Funny thing is, the Charger/300 are literally no bigger than the M-body Fifth Ave, Dip, and Fury. The Challenger is also very similar in size to the J-body Mirada, Doba, and Imperial. Those cars were considered intermediates back in the day (except Iacocca pushed them as "full-size"), and their F-body Volare and Aspen cousins were actually marketed as large compacts in the mid-70s. That's why it's so funny to hear kids point at a Charger or Challenger today and say "what a boat". I always fire back - "have you ever seen a '78 New Yorker, Lincoln Continental, or Caddy DeVille?" Here's my view of size vs weight: As the resident Allpar squad car nut, I own a most appropriate ride, which is a 2017 AWD Pursuit. How can that little car weigh so blasted much, even after I removed the entire PDC and its harness? I would bet it weighs at least 4500 lbs before I sit my chubby caboose in it. That thing should be an absolute tank, but it's all plastic and aluminum. They have the brake lines running across the front of the radiator support, so if I whack a deer, it'll kill the car, too. My old M-body Plymouths never weighed more than 3800 lbs, with all my travel gear in the trunk, and me in the seat. Yes, I realize all the safety and convenience stuff crammed into the newer cars. The suspension on my Charger is definitely beefed up over the RWD Chargers I've owned, and the brakes are as huge and heavy as they should be for this car's mission. I have an idea the switch to the V6 for the 2021 AWD Pursuit model will show us how even a 250-300 lb weight reduction will produce significant benefits. I think the size of the cars is perfect. I believe they need to look at how to reduce weight, but also increase durability wherever possible.
