How to make sure to get 4wd?

Have an upcoming reservation at SLC for a ski trip and don't see any option to ensure a 4wd/awd vehicle. The only potentials are the small, intermediate, full-size SUV, but I know many of these are just FWD versions of these. Any way to make sure to get 4WD/AWD? I guess I can just do a small or intermediate SUV res and hope for the best, and keep a F backup to make sure that I could take something better from UC, if available. Arriving late at night so suspect the pickings will be pretty slim.

Thanks!

Typically the only vehicle 100% guaranteed to be 4WD/AWD is a Jeep. Some Intermediate SUVs are, but your chances are probably better reserving a Standard SUV if there isn't a big price differential as we've observed that more SFARs typically have 4WD/AWD than IFARs.
