Ram Power Wagon gets stuck in the Pacific Ocean

Article by Anita Panait, on May 8, 2013

It was a case of a photo-shoot-gone-wrong for the Chrysler Group's new Ram Power Wagon. As powerful as the pickup truck maybe, but it seems it was not designed to get out of a very compromising situation – getting stuck on some rocks on the beach off Trinidad, California. Apparently, a Chrysler Group marketing team was trying to shoot the Ram Power Wagon climbing some rocks at low tide.

But instead of another successful photo-shoot, this one turned out to be a brouhaha after the Ram Power Wagon got lodged on some sea rocks. Chrysler tried to free the vehicle before high tide could resurface, but to no avail.

It took the help of tow truck operators finally to pull out the Ram Power Wagon from the sea and drag it back to shore the next day. These were all witnessed by area nature photographer Matt Hinton, who managed to have his own photo-shoot of what had occurred.

Images show the Ram Power Wagon being battered by strong waves, entering the pickup bed. One of the images also shows a surfer standing on top of the vehicle as waves ride on it.

A spokesman for Ram sent a matter-of-fact comment to Automotive News regarding the incident, confirming that during a photo shoot, a Ram truck was lodged on some rocks on a beach when the tide came in.

The spokesman said that the EPA has inspected the vehicle and confirmed there was no leakage from its fluid tanks. Chrysler said it has authorization and permits to be in all of the areas where the shoot was made. [via autonews]
