This is the new thread for the Hertz fleet from 2021 and onwards.
It is a continuation of US Hertz Fleet - What Makes/Models are Available? (2018-20 Thread)

Please see the wiki for details. Members with 90 days or more of membership and at least 90 posts may update the wiki, as needed.

Questions regarding specific locations (eg, "I am Renting From XXX; What Might I Get?") may be moved by a moderator to specific/dedicated threads for that location.

Not sure who put Impreza back in the new list, but this vehicle doesnt exist in fleet. Also the forester is very questionable too;

I would suggest delete all but Dodge Journey in class K6; Ive not seen any of those actually existed in K6 instead of L4

I actually spotted a Toyota Prius at an HLE 2 months ago, but not sure if this thing still exists in the fleet

Im not sure why I cant see the edit button for the wiki, so if someone can add these it would be great:

Compacts/B
VW Beetle (YB)
VW Golf
Hyundai Veloster

Full size/F
Toyota Camry

Q4
Ford Escape
VW Tiguan

L
Hyundai Santa Fe

B4
Toyota CH-R

F4
Ford Edge

L4
Kia Sorento

H4
Infiniti QX50

I had rented 5+ times this year already and I can tell you that subarus do exist in the fleet.
Also K6 just means 2WD version of L4.
It's not a bookable class but they do exist.

I'm currently in my 5th rental this year now, and its been in different places

Outback and probably at some areas forester do exist - however Impreza? Never saw a real one

I know what a K6 is - the thing is do the 2WD version except dodge journey still exist in the fleet? Even hertz buy 2WD QX60 I doubt there is a 2WD pathfinder

I guess it depends on the location, I haven't seen Audi in the east coast maybe I might have missed it.

Personally never seen a AWD pathfinder other than in colorado once in 2020 since late 2019.
Every single impreza that I had seen seems to have either colorado/utah/washington plate
The only guaranteed 7 seater suv model seems to be the Kia sorento.
Never seen a single one in 2WD form.
I had seen everything else in 2WD form.

That too, there's sometimes a difference in fleet between regions. Just like I had only seen a Jeep gladiator once in the west coast but for a while they were everywhere in the east coast

Happy New Year and sorry for being OT - are rental car prices inside US also that high currently like I am experiencing when booking from EU? Used to get a 4 week rental on a FFAR for something like 62 USD a day, but now rates have skyrocketed to above 80 USD a day???

Another question: Does Hertz actually carry Premium Pickup-Trucks? At Alamo I get SPAR (Medium Size) and PPAR (Premium). Hertz website gives me O6 (Frontier Crew Cab, "Small"), S (RAM 1500 "Medium"), S7 (F250 "Fullsize Elite").

Was at an HLE in Tulsa picking up a vehicle and while they were processing the paperwork, I noticed a Honda Civic in the parking lot with FL plates. Was in a hurry so I didn't get a chance to ask what the story was with the Civic.

In my experience, rental car prices have been high since the summer. The companies, especially Hertz, sold off a lot of their fleets and have not replaced enough of them to normalize prices.

Don't get fooled by Alamo/National types, premium pick up trucks just simply means full-size pick up trucks.
It doesn't mean that all of their F-150 or RAM 1500 come with higher trim levels.

Yeah, both EHI (Enterprise/National/Alamo) and Hertz have essentially two categories: small pickups (Chevy Colorado, Nissan Frontier - SPAR at EHI, O6 at Hertz) and full-size pickups (Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram, Ford F-150 - PPAR at EHI, S at Hertz).

Only bigger trucks I've seen on the lots are the Ram 2500s, which seem to have mostly all vanished with COVID. I've never seen S7 as a bookable category, what location was that at?

I just saw it in the general fleet overview on their website, but not with any specific location entered. The description is basically the same as S, but it adds Navigation and V8 engine.

The higher trim pickups do exist though. Hertz mostly has Ram 1500 Classics, but I have seen Laramie trims. I've also seen F-150 Lariat trims.

Good morning,

Thanks
