Production 2019 BMW X7 Breaks Cover

Almost exactly five months ago, we got to drive BMW X7 test mules and at the time, BMW reps were moot about details short of saying what you can see is probably what you’re going to get.

2019 BMW X7 First Road Test

The new X7 is a large truck, BMW’s largest ever production vehicle. In typical BMW fashion however, designers have managed to make big a  graceful thing. If you recall, the BMW Concept X7 iPerformance was less than attractive due mostly to its massively oversized kidney grills and bumper openings. The 2019 X7 is very upright and SUV-like in its proportions.

As BMW’s new flagship product, the move was expected. The X7’s cabin is 7 Series matching in design, technology, opulence and luxury. The standard third row is the X7’s calling card, positioning it again the likes of the Audi Q7, Range Rover, Mercedes GLS and others.

As predicted, the powertrains will consist of the single-turbo 335-horsepower 3.0-litre inline-6 for the xDrive40i and the twin-turbo 456-horsepower 4.4-litre V8 in the xDrive50. Both engines will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The new 2019 BMW X7 is expected in showrooms late winter/early spring next year. The US pricing structure is $74,895 for the xDrive40i, and $93,595 for the xDrive50i, before options. Canadian pricing will likely be 5% to 10% higher.
