The same document that revealed specifications about the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra has provided some new clues about the rest of German automaker’s lineup.
Car and Driver took a closer look at the 177 page document and found some interesting details about the X2 crossover. Included in the text were references to a US-spec 28i which will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 228 hp (170 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. The engine will likely be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the document confirms the vehicle will be offered front- and all-wheel drive.
The product codes also suggest the X7 will be offered with at least three different engines. The X7 xDrive 40i could come equipped with a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder developing 335 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. There’s also a reference to an X7 xDrive 50i which hints at a 4.4-liter TwinTurbo Turbo V8 engine developing 445 hp (332 kW) and 479 lb-ft (648 Nm) of torque. Lastly, there could be a diesel-powered X7 xDrive 40d but a U.S. launch remains uncertain at this point.
