BMW was pioneer in offering SUV cars in their production lineup. Nowadays, classic 5 seater SUV’s are only option available from BMW, while competition offers bigger 7 seats SUV models. BMW will now offer new version called 2018 BMW X7, which will certainly be capable to accommodate up to 7 passengers as well. Future BMW SUV will be positioned just above the X6 model in the lineup. Upcoming 2018 X7 will actually be a crossover version of the BMW 7 Series.
Same as all cars from BMW lineup, X7 will also use identical SCAR modular architecture. This suggests that it will be produced with high use of carbon fiber, high strength steel and aluminum. 2018 X7 should be lightly heavier than X5 and X6 models. But it will also be wider and have longer wheelbase. It should have much better performance and improved comfort. This BMW SUV will be offered in base version, as well as in a highly luxurious variant. Exterior design details should be borrowed from other BMW cars. We expect to see front end similar to new BMW 7 Series, while rear end could be taken from future X5 model. 2018 X7 will only be offered as 7 seater SUV, with possible exception for top of the range luxury model. Speaking of interior design, X7 will get much more space, mostly due to the fact that it has longer wheelbase and wider chassis. Cabin design could actually be modified version of 7 Series interior. Most luxurious version of BMW X7 will probably get only 4 seats and more exclusive finish. This will ensure maximum comfort and luxury.
2018 BMW X7 engine performance and fuel economy specs
2018 BMW X7 engine for base model should be 3.0-liter turbocharged inline 6 powertrains. This engine will be capable of producing 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Second engine choice will most likely be V8 twin-turbocharged powertrain. This strong V8 engine could possibly deliver up to 550 horsepower. Top luxury version of 2018 X7 will be powered by bigger and stronger V12 engine. In BMW 7 Series, this V12 generates amazing 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. New X7 SUV should get either all-wheel or rear-wheel drive system. Also expect to see 8-speed automatic transmission from New BMW 7.
2018 BMW X7 release date and price review
2018 BMW X7 price is still unavailable, but some speculations and rumors are very interesting. Base version could cost slightly more than X6 model. High luxury model of X7 will certainly cost more than $100,000. This model will compete on the market with SUV cars such as Bentley Bentayga and Maybach GLS. 2018 BMW X7 release date should be set during 2017.
