With the Sucess of BMW 4x4 ranger they are now going after the big dogs like LandRovers Range Rover and Mercedes GLS with its new X7 SUV. 

Due to be revealed in Britain next March 2019.This will be BMW leadership SUV ahead of the X5 and X6 as its the largest SUV BMW have ever built. The BMW X7 is larger than its competitor, Range Rover, but it sits lower, at just 1,805mm tall. However, it does weigh in at over 2.4 tonnes in its lightest guise. Wheel options range up to 22 inches but does come with LED head and tail-lights, plus a glass panoramic roof as standard. 

There is expected to be two diesels and a petrol engine, which will be offered in the UK from March 2019 and all of them sending power to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The base model when the car goes on sale next year will be the xDrive30d has a 3.0-litre straight-six turbodiesel, which produces 262bhp and this will be priced around £72,155. however, if thats not enough power for you then you might want to look at the xDrive40i. A turbocharged six-cylinder petrol with 335bhp or the top of the line M50d model developed along side BMW's M-division and producing a nice 395bhp. For those out side the Europe can expect to receive the jaw dropping V8 xDrive50i with 456bhp.

The product manager for the X7 Nina McFadden, explained the significance of the new model. “Since a seven is in the name, it has to live up to the heritage of the 7 Series and have the same luxury feeling. This was our big target,”.

All cars are equipped with an xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which BMW says retains a rear-drive-biased set-up. For those intending to take their X7s out side Kensington and Chelseas an off-road package with driving modes tailored for snow, sand, gravel and rocky surfaces is available as an options. 

The X7 is a available as a six or seven-seat SUV, with a full-size third row capable of seating two adults. As standard it features a middle bench that seats three people, straddled across a flat transmission tunnel. But in a move unique for the class, buyers can opt for a six-seat set-up instead; it features two large seats complete with armrests in the middle row. 

 

Keep all seven seats in place and the boot’s capacity is a mire 326 litres, which is a little more than you’d get in an average family supermini. Fold the third row flat and you get 725 litres, while folding all five rear seats down opens up a wopping 2,120 litres of maxmum load space. 

The X7 can come with a wide selection of metal and wood trims, ambient lighting strips and crystalline gear selector, along with BMW’s iDrive 7.0 in-car control and infotainment tech features across dual 12.3-inch displays.
