Good Off-Road vehicle

What are some good off road vehicles? Nothing heavy duty. Something that navigates gravel and dirt roads well. Jeep is my first thought. I have no idea what vehicles have a good reputation.

I just got a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek with a manual transmission this summer. My first new car! It's an all wheel drive and gets wonderful gas mileage. I hope to retire in the desert and I think it may get me down some dirt roads. It sits very high so it has lots of clearance, but I'd be hesitant to climb any steep hills. It's very economical but has a small engine. I would never drive cross country in the desert though, that environment recovers very slowly and I wouldn't want to contribute to it's destruction. I just love the desert too much!!! Just down some established roads for some good rock hounding.
Another plus is that mine is a very bright blue, so if I got stuck I'd be easily seen! Also, the price is reasonable and it is very roomy!
