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.

DRIVER ASSIST SYSTEMS

Speed-dependent Integral Active Steering turns the rear wheels either the same direction as the front, to enhance stability in high-speed maneuvers such as lane changes. Also, it turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels, to facilitate low-speed maneuvering by decreasing the turning radius. 





In addition, the X7 boasts of several Driver-Assist Tech. This ranges from standard features like blind-spot detection and lane departure warning to optional panorama 3D view and head-up display. In addition, reversing can be seamless as a Back-Up Assistant takes over steering to maneuver the vehicle out of a parking lot by mirroring the direction you used while parking.
