I'd mainly look at midsized SUVs because in your budget, you could get a top of the line one and still have money to spare.
I don't know if the Pathfinder would be the best choice because the CVT transmission is notorious for failing in the new ones, but Consumer Reports shows that they have fixed it in the current 2017 Pathfinders. It's a comfy car, but it's a little outdated and still has other problems with reliability. The good thing is that it can tow 6000 lbs.
One of the most overlooked SUVs, but still pretty popular is the Kia Sorento. I've driven it and it drives like a luxury car. The V-6 AWD can tow 5000 pounds with the towing package. The Pilot and this are really good SUVs. The reliablity has been very good too.
I'd take a look at a 2017 Honda Pilot Elite because it has good reliability, it's comfy, it's up to date with technology. It has a pretty good AWD system too where you can select the type of terrain you are on. It can tow 4500 pounds in AWD and 2000 in FWD.
The Toyota Highlander is also a good choice because it has a nice blend of reliability, up to date technology, comfort, and off road capability. It can tow 5000 pounds with the towing package on the V-6 model and 3500 pounds with the hybrid, which is AWD. One thing I found with the Highlander was that the side mirrors were very large and restricted visibility. They would cover up someone on a crosswalk from the driver's view.
