I just realized that the Gladiator's wheelbase is going to be 1" longer than my Ford Excursion's :facepalm:

Don't get me wrong, I love my Excursion. I bought it new in 2003 and have put 216k miles on it. That said, I REALLY liked the maneuverability of my Wrangler Unlimited. It never occurred to me the Gladiator would have a longer wheelbase than the largest SUV ever made. I'm kinda bummed right now.

I expect it will maneuver better than most trucks, not as well as an Unlimited. I don't expect to be much worse than the Unlimited, however.

I question your ability to tell the difference of one inch difference in wheel base in ANYTHING.
I agree with you 100%. I was only comparing the Gladiator wheelbase to the Excursion for context. Everyone knows how big an Excursion is.....the Gladiator will have a slightly longer wheelbase than that. Crazy.

I may buy one eventually but it will be a last year type sale.
wait for the price to drop a bit and get something with hardly any km's lightly used or a former short term lease.
