Default Should the next Challenger be smaller or stay the same?

The Challenger is in the process of a great sales year but it still falls well shy of the Mustang and Camaro. Some people blame the size of the current Challenger...so should the next generation Dodge Challenger be smaller?

I prefer the challenger to stay the same size as it is. But possibly user lighter weight materials where needed to shave as much weight off the vehicle.

No, they got it right the first time. Way better car than any other competitor! That's coming from a chevy guy.

It's a looker. Styling-wise, they nailed it. To change the size would be a mistake. But as always, making it lighter is a wise choice.

they should leave the car the same, but turn the R/T Classic into a striped down version make get rid of all the power options and half the air bags.

I concur with my fellow vehicle people. On a side note, was looking at the Dart, not to buy one but just in passing, think they need to up the size a bit and put a 6 cylinder or a small block V8. It would appear that the Challenger is based on the original look and same would hold true for the Dart, the current version does no justice for the original model.

Same design, just a bit smaller dimensions and about 1000lbs lighter.

I personally like the size as is, but the weight needs to be dropped. The problem is that it simply isn't as fast and if it were it would be doing a lot better. In fact I know several people personally that bought a Mustang over the Challenger for that reason. No one can deny the power plant in the Challenger, but we lose around the track every time.
