Definitely don't go with the Mitsubishi or the Ford. Trust me. You can do MUCH better for the same price.
It seems like you listed specific cars you either looked at or drove. If you could drive a 2008 Mazda CX-9 in your price range, take a look. The engine in the 2007 Mazda CX-9 is the engine from the Ford Edge. For the 2008 model year, Mazda used their own Mazda engine and put that in, which made the car much better in the refinement, fuel economy, fun, reliability, and acceleration. Unfortunately, I have only driven a 2017 CX-9 and not any other cars on your list.
