There’s a new flagship SUV at the BMW range, the X7, and is one that’s hard to miss, especially if you look it from the front.
The automaker has released a new image gallery of the X7 in range-topping xDrive50i form, so if you were wondering what nearly $94k gets you, this is one of your options – assuming, of course, that you’re looking for a luxury full-size SUV.
Measuring 203.3 inches (5,164 mm) long, 78.7 inches (1,999 mm) wide, 71.1 inches (1,806 mm) high, and with a 122.2-inch (3,104mm) long wheelbase, the new BMW X7 is able to fit up to seven passengers on three throws of seats in comfort.
Customers in the U.S. get to choose between two engine options: the base xDrive40i model comes powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six with 335hp and 330lb-ft (447Nm) of torque, while the xDrive50i is fitted with the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, offering 456hp and 479lb-ft (649Nm) of torque. Both come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. European markets don’t get the xDrive50i, but receive two diesels: the 261hp xDrive30d and the 394hp M50d.
The fastest X7 that will be available in the States, as BMW has already ruled out an M version, is capable of reaching 60mph (97km/h) in 5.2 seconds and maxing out at an electronically limited 130mph (209km/h).
Standard equipment includes features such as a four-zone climate control system, a 10-speaker audio system, a three-panel panoramic glass sunroof, a wireless charging pad and a WiFi hotspot. However, the options list is quite long as you would imagine, enabling customers to tailor their X7 to their desired specification.
