Options List Leaks For Upcoming BMW X7 xDrive50i

The long-awaited BMW X7 is just around the corner and a list of standard features and options for the upcoming X7 xDrive50i has leaked online.

BMW Blog reports that the X7 xDrive50i will probably be one of the most popular X7 variants and come fitted with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine delivering 455 hp. The list of standard features confirms that the vehicle will utilize an eight-speed automatic transmission and the company’s xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Moving to the options, certainly most interesting is the presence of an M Sport Differential. No existing xDrive-equipped BMW models feature a limited-slip differential, except the recent M5. Consequently, it is possible that the xDrive50i will be offered with an all-wheel drive system very similar to the M5 or alternatively, in a rear-wheel drive variation.

Alongside the M Sport Differential, the options list includes things like ambient lighting, concierge services, rear-seat entertainment, massage seats for the driver and front passenger, soft close automatic doors, remote engine start, and night vision with object recognition.

BMW recently started building pre-production X7s at its Spartanburg plant and is set to use them for homologation, registration, and endurance testing in extreme conditions.
