Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave.

Trump-esque size; its YUUUGE.

Rides well, quiet, reasonable price.

Not as advanced electronically as Pilot, Highlander, Explorer, but does have 4GLTE.

I'm not clear if you need

A) 7 seat + luggage or
B) 7 seats , no luggage, 5 seats + luggage.

Assuming A, I know you said SUV but check out the Toyota Sienna. It come in 4wd if that is a requirement and has more space with people than an SUV.

If B then there are lots of choices as most 3 row SUV will work. Consider a Ford Flex (I think they look cool but based on sales numbers I'm in a minority)

With almost 25 cu ft of cargo behind the 3rd row the Traverse, Enclave, and Acadia have it going on with best sales of any crossover.
