Thats quite the range of bike options- $1000-2700.
There are dozens of options within that range.

The DYI solution for the Hannjo is good, and you could probably get away with keeping the current RD on there with an 11-36 cassete, but either way- it would get you close to what you mention wanting.
This is $1500, has GRX 30-36 bailout gearing, mechanical disc brakes, thru axles, carbon fork, fits up to a 44mm tire, and isnt black/gray.

Me personally- if that really is your budget, I would buy a frame and build it up. A 46/30 crank and an 11-40 cassette has been shown to work with the Ultegra RX RD. Maybe a roadlink is needed or maybe a longer B screw, depending on the bike. But you could get exactly what you want for gearing this way.
