I rented a Chevy Suburban about 3 weeks ago that was equipped with the trailering package and four wheel drive.

They still won't let you tow with any of their vehicles if I'm not mistaken

Do T, T4, L4 classes have 4wd? The older fleet list thread here had a bunch of "4wd/awd" marked in the list, while this 2021 list doesn't so I'm wondering. if Hertz has sold off most of their 4wd and pickups.

I've never seen a 2WD Full Size or Premium SUV (I think that's T and T4?) at Hertz, AFAIK they are basically 100% 4WD/AWD. (Not sure about the Armadas and QX80s, never rented one of those, just the GM and Ford models)

The smaller 7 passenger SUVs, like Acadia, Explorer, etc are mostly 2WD. Officially the cars seem to be split by drivetrain, but I don't think you can reserve one or the other? So e.g. if you reserve a 7-passenger SUV (L4) they will give you either a K6 (2WD) or an L4 (4WD).

They come with the packages as they help when it comes time to sell them off. Towing is still a major violation of the rental agreement.

Hi all! I have an H4/JFDR reservation for a surprisingly low rate in NYC in two weeks, so I'm wondering what to expect.

For one, what model am I likely to get? The Hertz site here says that it is going to be a Cadillac XT4, Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, Infiniti QX50, or Volvo XC60. I'm hoping for a XC60 or a GLC, but which one is the most likely?

Secondly, it says here that the H4 category is all AWD (which the ACRISS code also shows), but I was wondering if every vehicle in this class is actually AWD or if it is not guaranteed. Could anyone provide any insight into this?

Thanks for any advice!

I would say you are most likely going to get Evoque> X3>GLC300>QX50
Although X3 is a "different class" most hertz employees/managers consider them as H4s.
There are virtually no XC60 and XT4 in the fleet currently.
I had been seeing brand new QX50 at different locations in the past 2 weeks so there might be a chance you will be getting one of them.
All of the X3 and some of the GLC don't come with AWD

Thanks! I have never driven (or been in) a Range Rover before, so I have no clue if it is a good car, but since I will 95% need AWD, I'll just ask for one when I get there. If they don't have one, do the QX50s have AWD? If yes, I'll probably take that.

Thanks for the insight!

Just spotted a sea of brand new 2021 Chevy Equinox at LAX and they are tagged as Q4.
They are not L anymore.

Evoques are fun to drive, just that they are kinda small and visibility isn't very good.
I believe the QX50 should have awd.
My suggestion for you is you can call the 1800 number and have them pull up your reservation to put a note saying you need an AWD vehicle.

Alright, I might do that. Do you think that that would actually make any difference?
Also, if I do get an Evoque, would it be the new one (MY20+) or the older one? If it's the old one, I'd rather get a QX50.

Also, when I get there, would it make any difference if I ask for a certain model or not?

EDIT: I've also heard that some of the new Lincoln SUVs (Nautilus, I think) have been tricking into Hertz and Avis lots, what is the chance I'll get one of those? Would it have AWD?

Usually if you are a gold member and they pre assign your car before you arrive it should make a difference, usually for specific model request they never assign me one though.
I had seen a mix of both old and new ones on the lot at recent as 2 weeks ago.
I had not seen any lincoln suv in hertz fleet since the bankruptcy, but while renting at many different locations every week and seeing new cars every week recently, anything could happen in the near future.

Alright, thanks for the insight. Unfortunately, due to inclement weather, we've had to rebook our trip to the week after, and we rebooked the car at Sixt, as they had a better rate. I'll keep this info in mind the next time I rent from Hertz!

While they're on it, why don't buy some palisade or telluride and let some old pathfinders and old explorers go. Based on my observation when they buy a hyundai/kia, it's the lowest trim (or second lowest) guaranteed, and now it's venue, arguably the most hideous car that you can find after that pontiac! How can they actually try to tell people with a Q4 reservation that hey this kicks/venue is what you booked!!!

Also looks like there're tons of new mazda coming. CX-5 and CX-30 are everywhere now
