Fitting gravel road bike

About to drop a good percent of my net worth on a bicycle Now I'm super analyzing it, and fit is of course very important next to bike type. It's gonna be a wet weather, rough road, gravel road type bike. Last time I went way too big and clunky on large giant any road with rack and just ended up selling it. I had to put a 75 mm stem on and don't want to do that again as I do most my riding on roads. I'm 5'9 with 32 inseam always seem to be between 54/56 or medium, and large I have always felt comfortable on larger frames. My regular road bike is a 56, trek domane with stem flipped and as far down as it goes. Planning on this bike to be more upright but still as road oriented as possible. Im been between the specialized diverge, giant revolt, trek checkpoint those are pretty much my options without traveling too far. so is it feasible sizing down for a more nimble ride on bumpier roads? Will this effect the abily to ride longer distances comfortably? Any known models come in a 55?!? thanks any help would be great or if u just want to talk about unrelated bike stuff that's awesome too. It's wet out and in need of rainy day bike..
