Default turning circle?

Okay, this isn't really a complaint, just noticing things being different.

Coming from 7 years driving an extended cab 6' box GMC, it seemed like I had to crank the wheel quite a bit, and could make a pretty tight turn when I needed to.

Noticed on the new ram Crew Cab 6'4 box I make something like 3 turns of the wheel and I'm at lock. Not that I've had any issues maneuvering, but sure seems like I can't turn nearly as tight of a corner.

To me, in all seriousness, it feels like the 20" wheels restrict how far I can turn the wheel. is the wheelbase really that much longer or is the steering ratio that much faster that I hit lock sooner????

again not complaining - just kinda weirded out. seems like I hit the steering limits alot.
