Since they used existing car platforms the size and weight of the vehicles was undeniable. They're realizing this now since the 2011 Mustang is whooping them in every category. I would assume that Chevy has plans to lesson the weight when the new generation comes out. Ford has already announced they will be too. Dodge on the other hand, I would guess they will drop the Challenger from the line up in the next couple of years. The Challenger is a very impractical car!
With the largest trunk, seating for five, and the most comfy ride the challenger is the most practical of the bunch. I think what you meant was the challenger is not a contender as a sports car. It does fine as a muscle car. The mustang has bridged the gap into becoming a full fledged sports car while the camaro falls in the middle.

Challenger wins as the most practical for free way travel. Impractical as hell maybe in a large city like NYC ATL or CHI, if that's what you meant.
