2020 BMW X7. First, BMW X7 is not just an X5 extension. It is taller, of course, by about seven inches, making it nearly 200 inches from the trunk to the rear, but also wider and longer. This is clear when you came to it. Boarding on board is almost the same as in the X5, but the view from behind the wheel is not. The truck is wider, and the driver looks over the hood that looks wide and long. After that, you do not feel lost in the car, thanks to a fairly large glass area, modest size pillows, a work-like driving position with a prominent dead pedal and a hinge accelerator.
The rubber-rimmed steering wheel with its soft, cigarette-encased leather jacket is the familiar BMW fare, as well as the iDrive console along the gentle electronic shifter and multi-color power seats available. In recent years, BMW has put a lot of emphasis on building its own SUV lineup, as buyers seem to be flocking to those who own luxury cars. The next step for Bimmer is the launch of the 2020 BMW X7 range, which we first saw in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017, and is now rolling in the assembly line of Spartanburg, South Carolina in the pre-production phase.
As the pre-production model has already begun, and BMW has already approved the design, the BMW X7 is likely to reach 2020 by wearing vintage ammunition from the latest BMW models. BMW recently showed off, the largest upright 2020 X5, which has gained wide network headlights that no longer face a grille. Inside, we expect much of the same thing we saw from the rest of the BMW SUV models, as well as a 7-Series touch, which includes a set of digital counters and a central display side by side. Platform, which will soon support all the Bimmer North Series 2. The main concern of this platform is to reduce weight, so look for the 2020 BMW X7 to be agile for its size, although we do not expect to see the carbon core that helped the 7 series to reduce weight a lot.
Under the hood, for our market, a 2020 BMW X7 will come with a turbocharged 3.0-liter or 6-cylinder V-8 or twin-turbocharged, as described in the current X5. More power and torque are expected to be announced than the current 300 hp, 300 lb / ft (six), 445 hp and 480 lb / ft (in the case of V-8). Both will be automatically integrated with an eight-speed system, and the all-wheel xDrive system will be standard. Although the current X5 still offers the diesel engine option, there is no diesel fuel planned at BMW X7 in the United States (other markets will get one); our third power generation group is likely to be a hybrid X5 xDrive40e) but not until 2020.
Oh, and while BMW executives laughed at our questions about the event BMW X7 m, this is not the same as “no” final. Mercedes-AMG offers GLS63 after all. We dig both the six-cylinder and the V-8 on two tracks and briefly on the highway near Spartanburg, South Carolina, where all BMW X7 will be built along the X5 / X6 and X3 / X4 siblings. Despite the extra capacity of 2020 BMW X7 compared to the X5 (as there is no willingness to say BMW), the six Turbo is quite appropriate in this application, but the most prominent quality is silence. Everything except mute, an enhanced impression through the ultra-fast eight-speed automatic transitions. The V-8 is even more charming because of its accelerated acceleration coupled with a silent audio connection.
The competition includes the Cadillac Escalade, the Lexus LX 570 and the Mercedes-Benz GLS Class. Pricing is another area still unclear, but given the current BMW SUV economies it appears that the 2020 BMW X7 should be seated just north of the BMW X6, which ranges from $ 63,045 to $ 78,695. The MSRP range from about $ 70,000 to $ 90,000 seems logical at this stage. The BMW X7 race for 2020 will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2018. Expect to see it in showrooms in early 2020.
