Maybe not a real challenger, but as far as size and features alone, I think it's a contender.

It's a decent entry to a non-luxury midsize SUV market, but it's biggest weakness if it wants to punch above its weight competition-wise is limited low-end torque in a US-proposed V6. A turbo-or-super charged entry would make it a player.

"Occupant Alert.
Alerts you via smartphone text to retrieve a child or pet left in the rear seats of your vehicle."

This is really strange.

It may be like the Cadillac XT5 I rented for 2 weeks last year. If I opened the back door, then the front, it would alert me to check the back seat when I shut it off. Fortunately I was able to disable it.

Looks like they borrowed a lot of styling from many other SUV's and mixed it all together.

Talking about challengers:

Here's the configurator of the Lincoln Aviator. Fully loaded with everything, exactly as expensive as my Q7:
