The X7 blends presence, exclusivity, and spaciousness with the versatile and agile driving properties you’d always expect from a BMW. It features a three-row seating configuration and the largest signature kidney grille you’ll find in the BMW line up.

It not only adds a new top model to the X family, but also defines a progressive approach to luxury for the BMW brand.”
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
This particular one is the BMW X7 xDrive40i powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine. It is mated to an eight-speed Steptronic transmission, producing 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. 0-100 km/h is in 5.8 seconds. Top speed is 245 km/h and fuel consumption is an impressive 9.0 – 8.7 l/100 km (about 32 mpg)
Furthermore, an xDrive50i with 4.4 liter – twin-turbo – V8 will also be available with 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. 0 – 100 km/h will be in 5.2 seconds.
The eight-speed Steptronic transmission is intelligently connected to the navigation system and Active Cruise Control’s radar sensors. This enables the X7 to see the road ahead and adapt the way it shifts to the route and driving situation. This ensures the X7 is always in the right gear for the upcoming road condition. This transmission sends power to the wheels through the BMW xDrive intelligent All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system.
