First 2014 Hyundai Equus shipment adrift in Pacific Ocean [UPDATE]
The ship, Morning Spruce, has apparently been without power for several days and is floating in the Sea of Okhotsk. It isn't clear when it will be repaired or reach US shores to discharge its contents. As a result of the wandering Spruce, Hyundai has reportedly had to reschedule some of its planned marketing efforts for the new model.
The 2014 Equus receives a suite of changes inside and out, including freshened styling, revamped center stack controls, a new instrument cluster and additional tech. Underneath, the rear-drive sedan gets a reworked suspension and a new sport mode to ease some of its nautical-by-nature handling. The 5.0-liter Tau V8 and eight-speed transmission – updates for 2012 – stay the course for 2014.
UPDATE: USA Today reports that Morning Spruce is back on the move, scheduled to dock in the US sometime next week.
