The 'rock' is not 170 miles wide.. the full photo is.. and not the cropped area I posted in the OP. Visit the link above your post to see the full sized image.
And yes, it should have made some form of a crater, if it is a crashed object. but it would depend on when and how it crashed. It might have crashed millions of years ago into a softer surface (just an idea) but it might be an outcrop of some kind..
It's hard to tell.. it is very unusual though.
