BMW X7 xDrive50i Might Just Be The SUV You’re Looking For

The BMW X7 is an absolute brute of a thing and if you can look past the huge kidney grille (as hard as that may be), it is a seriously impressive piece of kit as this video from Redline Reviews highlights.

BMW released the X7 as a direct rival to the Mercedes-Benz GLS and in range-topping xDrive50i form, as tested here, it makes for a very compelling package.

Powering this version is a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 with no less than 456 hp and 479 lb-ft (649 Nm) of torque that is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the car tested includes the M Sport package with features like optional silver and black wheels, a painted rear diffuser, and blue brake calipers.

Those looking at buying the BMW X7 have a multitude of different configurations to choose from, particularly when it comes to the interior. For example, you can choose to have either a bench seat in the second-row or alternatively, two full-size seats to provide passengers with the most comfortable experience possible. There are many other options available, including ambient lighting, rear-seat entertainment, massage seats for the driver and front passenger, and soft close automatic doors.

The following review shows that the SUV comes standard with a 12-inch instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. There is also an upgrade package available for the cabin which makes it so much nicer to spend time in thanks in particular to plush leather parts.

Prices for the BMW X7 xDrive50i start at almost $94,000, but that figure quickly exceeds $100,000 the moment you start to tick a few options.

    I just saw one. Ugly! Whoever’s responsible for this one should be forced to live on a melting piece of ice in the Arctic with a polar bear.

    This could be the gate I was looking for. The old one is falling to rust, and I need something to close the backyard.

  • Phillip Jones

    We just received our ordered X7 40i w/ twin-turbo inline 6 and it is quite quick, and has decent fuel mpg. I’m sure the 8-cyl would provide more thrilling acceleration, but honestly…I prefer that in my sports car over the family SUV.

    I saw one few days ago in black, it didn’t look half bad tbh.

    Seeing these on the road already, but it’s hard to tell that it’s supposed to the be their largest SUV. They’ve styled the rear end in such a way that it doesn’t emphasize its larger scale for some reason and I know BMW wasn’t trying to fool anyone seeing that they’ve specifically built a large SUV to compete with other large SUVs.
