If I followed there still needs to be size for family and camping but no offroad plans. Since there's no offroad needed then the focus should be for on road manners(rules out Jeep) with a splash of AWD. I saw a mention of altitude so snow is a consideration.

My dad has that MDX and similar requirements. First and foremost it needs to be comfortable for a multi-hour drive(76 years old and a not so good back). Check. Good tires and AWD system if he ever actually comes back north in winter, Check. Third row for when grandkids show up. Check. Decent acceleration, Check. Some prefer the Lexus RX or Highlander counterpart and that works too. He also bought a lightly used Cadillac in the same size class this winter.

While not my cup of tea the MDX hits a lot of boxes and sounds like similar needs. All of these are better on road than my 4Runner, though not nearly as cool

When you get right down to it there's only a handful of vehicles in this class. Another option is to move up to the full size SUV, Sequoia, Tahoe/Yukon, etc. Might need to be lightly used to fit under the price requirements.
