I would highly recommend the JGC diesel, show her the MPG benefits and actually have her try one out before making a final decision.

Another option is a Honda Pilot or Acura MDX. Both are roomy, comfy, and reliable. Also leaves the Toyota Highlander, RAV4, Venza (fugly), and 4 Runner.

Not sure if you've tried the new Explorer or not but it's quite good. Long term reliability has yet to be vetted but at least it'll be cheap to fix!
She is korean, so all asian models have been explored. Ford is my next choice, but she is pretty much dead set on a mid grade luxury vehicles.
