You're driving patterns would be perfect for the Pacifica (plugin) Hybrid, however that is above your price. As you only plan to keep for a short period you may want to look at leasing.

If you'd prefer used then look at the Kia Sedona. A CPO 2015 EX or SX should be in budget.

If you're looking for reliability, stay away from Chrysler. The Town and Country isn't a good minivan. You would need to get a Touring Elite Odyssey for blind spot monitoring.

Colin42 was right about the Kia Sedona. I looked on auto trader for a 2015 Kia Sedona EX with the EX Premium Package and everything was in your budget at about $24,000. The EX with Premium Package gives you a backup camera, blind spot monitoring, leather, rear cross traffic alerts (it tells you when there is a car you can't see backing up), and backup warning system. I am shocked about how good of a deal this is. Of coarse, Kia is isn't known for their stellar resale value, but their cars are generally reliable. The value on this van I think is unbeatable, but you got to test drive one for yourself.

If you sacrifice some cu ft of space for $26,000 range you can pick up nice 2016 Chevy Traverse with 30K miles. This will use the similar 3.6l V6 as a minivan but offer AWD as an option. The back up camera and other safety features would be standard. But the park assist might be up a few levles.
