Challenger still rides on a shortened LX chassis used for the Charger/Magnum/300; and, that older LX chassis wasn't crashing too well.
For model year 2011, FCA substantially improved that chassis and called it LD. So much so, that Charger/300 were top safety picks for a little while; at least, until the small overlap test was introduced.
But, Chally got left behind, never got the updated LD chassis.
In fact, IIHS only started to get Challengers from FCA in 2015; there's no data before that .
