Hertz officiallyfiled for bankruptcyin late May, citing the coronavirus pandemic’s cataclysmic impact on rental-car demand as Americans stay home and avoid travel. Now, the rental car company continues tooffload a sizable number of its rental-fleet stock. For those looking to save, there are some mighty good deals afoot.

iSeeCarspored over 20,000 used cars, trucks and SUVs that Hertz currently has listed for sale, all in an effort to identify which models offer the greatest savings. Some of the cars are very typical models you’d imagine for a rental fleet, but others are a little more shocking. The list isn’t made up of particularly old cars, either, since rental car companies work to keep their fleets updated for customers. Each car listed hails from the 2017 to 2019 model year.
