@Winzer: Actually, in case you haven't noticed, the Wrangler is not necessarily tiny. It has grown in two-door versions and the 2012 wheelbase will be slightly longer, too. Plus, the Unlimited has a 116 inch wheelbase...longest in Wrangler history. My point about the Toyota is that Truck Trend called it "biggest, baddest" which shows you how far our vehicles have shrunk, because by comparison, it's smaller than traditional American vehicles. Maybe it's because it's Japanese? Who knows? Your bigger is better statement would be argued by many today who buy small cars like the Cruze, Focus, etc.

Typical American mentality..."bigger = better"It's a very capable vehicle. Just because it's not the size of semi doesn't take away from what it was designed to do. Just look at any Wrangler...tiny SUV to be honest but it does what it's designed to do VERY well.

I laugh thinking this is Toyota's biggest vehicle. Compared to full-sized trucks, and traditional U.S. cars of the past, it's fairly short with a wheelbase smaller than some of my old compact cars. Actually, some compact cars' wheelbases were bigger. The good thing, though, is this vehicle that's about three feet shorter than my dad's old Chevy Impala would easily fit into the garage. It's really not that big I guess. I like the Infiniti QX56 better.
