If you really want genuine Jeep performance, the Liberty doesn’t disappoint.
If you want something that just looks like it could go off road, there are better choices.
Among those more carlike candidates are the Subaru Forester, which has a tough all-wheel-drive system that can take on muddy, rutted trails quite well.
The RAV4 is styled closer to an SUV, but it's similar to a car too; inside you can specify a small third-row seat.
Honda's CR-V is one of the smoothest-riding and most fuel-efficient, and it's a good choice for those who don't plan to venture off-road.
For those who want hardy off-road alternatives and really plan to take to the trail, the Nissan Xterra is a good choice, especially if you have a lot of equipment to haul around.
And for off-road fashionistas, the FJ Cruiser is a hot ride.
