See, I've been considering just getting BOTH a Crosstrek AND a used Wrangler for about the same as I'd pay for a Grand Cherokee or 4Runner.

I had a 2012 Grand Cherokee Limited and loved it. Perfect size.

I am starting to shop for a car to buy next spring/summer. I sold my BMW (was filled with guilt on that purchase because I wasn’t investing as much as I should) and have been driving a car that I will give to my daughter next Spring.  Anyone have any good idea on used cars that have a boat load of options?  I have never bought new, and don't plan to start now. I want adaptive cruise control, a really big info screen thing, heated seats, heated steering wheel, smart key, the works.  Kinda eyeballing Hyundai and Kia...never thought I'd say that! Also, I don't care about SUV's so I'd rather not pay extra for an SUV vs car.

SUV but I was in a Kia SUV Rental and it impressed me quite a bit. I've read that they decided to upgrade quality in the new models and this thing was quiet as crap on the highway and had all the features you listed. Definitely changed my mind about Kia.

I am seriously considering an Optima SXL, for example.  That K900 is badass but only RWD AND KANSAS WINTERS OMG!

I am in old man land now on cars.  I want the options that I want, a very comfy and quiet ride, reliable,  and I no longer give two fucks about “brand” from a coolness perspective.

Toyota Avalon would suit your needs.
 
Should be able to grab a three year old model for a good price.

Going to need a new family hauler ASAP.  Give me some suggestions.  Must haves are AWD and three row seating.

Neighbor works for a Toyota dealership and always bringing home cars, he brought home a new Highlander which was nice.   A friend got a new Honda Pilot which he likes.

Explorer Sport or Platinum w/ the twin turbo V6 is easily the best performance/$ - Platinum is about $50k and I think you can get a sport around $45k

I have an 2018 Armada (graphite color, 30k’ish miles) and it is too big. It also drinks gas like it’s crazed for booze and the gas is booze. Can’t park it without doing like 5 point turnabouts. It’s giant and comfy and feels fancy (for a Nissan), and powerful AF (395 hp, can tow 8,500) and I’m willing to part with it to you for a very fair price so slide into those DMs. I’m going to get a medium sized SUV instead like I should have when I bought this giant thing.

Redesign of the Grand Cherokee comes out in the fall (or thereabouts). First redesign since 2010!

eh, its only a couple grand more than the equivalent Highlander but the extra 100 ft-lbs of torque is priceless for victory at the LeMans on 135th

Hyundai Genesis 80 with AWD like this one is hard to beat - even better if you can find a private sale as they have 4/50k full warranty and 10/100k powertrain standardhttps://www.carmax.com/car/17262951

Not going to get tied down with a boat like that.  Looking more at the Ascent, Highlander, Pilot types.
