Hertz Car Rentals is now offering its customers in Germany a fleet of 120 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited, available for rental. The collaboration between Hertz and the new Jeep Wrangler brings together two pioneers in their respective fields. While a Jeep model kicked off the era of off-road vehicles more than 75 years ago, Hertz started in the rental business in 1918. Both brands are leaders in their respective worlds.
"We are pleased to offer our customers an exclusive driving experience with the all-new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited" said Alida Scholtz, Managing Director Hertz Germany. "Wrangler Unlimited offers the highest quality materials, state-of-the-art technologies and connectivity as well as the iconic look that make it our SUV of the year. Freedom and fun-to-drive are guaranteed in any weather and rental experience."
"The Jeep Wrangler as premium offer in the Hertz range enhances the important role as ambassador of this iconic model for the Jeep brand," said Maria Grazia Davino, CEO FCA Germany AG. "The new Wrangler is already in high demand by our customers. With almost 2,300 new registrations in 2018, the number of German drivers choosing the new Wrangler JL has already generated a growth of almost 90 percent compared to the previous year."
As a premium vehicle for travelers and free spirits, the Jeep Wrangler has joined the Hertz Prestige Collection, a selection of cars available for rent with a brand and model warranty. At present, the focus is on locations from where winter sports destinations can be reached.
The Jeep Wrangler fleet offered by Hertz includes the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 4-door models with long wheelbase, 200 hp turbo diesel engine, 8-speed automatic transmission and fully automatic 4WD with selectable low-gear. Five of these vehicles sport a Hella Yella exterior and feature Hertz branding.
