Others probably go through DTW more frequently than I do (and can provide better insight), but the few times I've seen one on EA or ES have been during snowstorms in January/February

Unlikely, usually they keep the convertibles up front by the office during the summer months to use as upsells. There may be a coupe of some kind if having a sportier car is your goal.

what are the typically options here for the upsells and what is the price per day?

Most of my posts in this thread from the past several months list the upgrades. They range from $25-75/day depending on the vehicle.

Arrived Saturday at 5 AM with a premium reservation. Is there a Premium row at this location that you can select from or must you go to the counter where you are assigned a premium car?

Mostly domestic full size and small/mid SUVs on the aisles.

Some highlights on the ES:
3x 300C
3x Buick LaCrosse (new style)
1x Buick large SUV
A few full size pickups
1x Dodge Challenger w/ Hemi 1700 miles
1x Camaro V8 SS coupe 3600 miles -- I took this. Super fun car with TERRIBLE visibility.

I asked the lot attendant if they ever put Infinitis or BMW on the executive aisle and was told that they usually reserve those for luxury reservations.

Usually Premiums are available on the ES, but when I have not been satisfied with the offerings I've asked to take from the Premium row on the Alamo side and have not had any issue doing so.

I picked up around 4 pm on Monday, July 24th. Mostly standard items in both ES and EA. Being that I am EE I pulled a loaded out Nissan Titan. I am a fan of trucks and large SUVs.

ES

Lots of general sedans (saw a Taurus), Sante Fe, F-150s and F-250s with one Ford Explorer Limited.

EA

Jeep Compass and a couple of other small cars.

Even though I like the trucks and large SUVs, I was hoping to pull a Camaro SS or Hemi. Maybe next time....

Nice selection yesterday (Wednesday) around 2:00 PM. They may have been short on cars because lots of really nice stuff found its way to the ES and there weren't a ton of cars around.

ES:
BMW X3
BMW 430i convertible
Audi Q3
Cadillac XTS
Cadillac CTS
2X Impala Premier
2X Dodge Ram
Chrysler Pacifica
Jee Grand Cherokee Limited
Ford Expedition SWB Limited
Pick your color of Altima

EA had several other minivans (Dodge Grand Caravans) and lots of ICAR/basic FCAR choices.

ES
Wrangler Unlimited
A few RAM trucks
Variety of SUVs (Rogue, Equinox, etc.).
2x Camaro
2X Impala Premier
1x Chrysler 300S

Sidenote: I tried out Hertz Ultimate Choice with Five Star status (equivalent to ES) at DTW. Total joke. No SUVs only Malibus, Sentras, Yaris, Mazda 3. Total fail will not go back.

I'm picking up an EA (or ES) car on 1 FEB to r/t to Toronto until 4 FEB -- any recommendations? Ideally something which has ~500 miles range so I don't need to fuel up in Canada.
