Like the 7 Series, the new BMW X7 is big.  It typifies the BMW brand with its imposing presence and a plethora of technology you will be in charge on the road. No matter how many people you fit into this three-row SUV it really has the power.

The Big Guns

With the 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 there are a number of performance upgrades called M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology package. You have an engine that makes 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.   With the eight-speed automatic sending that power to the ground via a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system.

The Big Drive

You also get an M Sport exhaust for better sound and a freer-breathing engine.  The transmission itself has been re-tuned for smarter shifts while in automatic mode, with paddles available for manual. To improve handling, the all-wheel-drive system is able to send 100 percent of available torque to the rear wheels when all-wheel traction isn’t needed. BMW says it’s tuned the bushings, spring, and damper settings for more reactive, lithe handling. The X7 M50i also has M Sport brakes, 22-inch wheels, and staggered 275/40 front and 315/35 rear performance tires.

The Big Look

A sportier appearance helps the X7 M50i stand out from the non-M version. The bigger grille improves airflow and cooling.   Finally, the seats are covered in perforated premium leather with contrast stitching.

Big Tech

There is a  leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering wheel with controls for audio system, cruise control, and Bluetooth® wireless communication for hands-free mobile phone. Included in the   Active Driving Assistant package, is Daytime Pedestrian Protection, Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to keep you safe.

A Connected Package Professional features Real-Time Traffic and   Hazard Preview, BMW Remote Services including Stolen Vehicle Recovery, Remote Door Unlock, and BMW Connected App, and Concierge Services. The Intelligent Personal Assistant voice control offers natural speech input for various functions, including navigation. This makes a luxurious ride fit for a monarch.
