Flagship BMW X7 will receive a full-fledged M-versionAugust 20, 2018
The Bavarian concern is just preparing for the presentation of its flagship crossover X7, which will be the largest and most expensive in the line. The date of the official presentation is not yet known, but some details are gradually seeping.
The situation around the biggest crossover in BMW history is already full of rumors promising the family, including a hardcore modification. The company BMW continues to keep fans in the dark about the future of the flagship X7. The car promises to be the most expensive and most prestigious. Now it became known that the car in the future can get a full “charged” modification of the “M”.
At the moment the information has the status of rumors and conjectures, but quite authoritative. Experts believe that in the recent road test at the Nürburgring track was tested exactly the sample of the BMW X7 M.
There is no official confirmation yet, and probably only know about the most powerful version of the “standard” model line – the M850i. This version will receive the company’s newest engine, which is already successfully used on the new BMW 8-Series coupe. This is a 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine with a maximum output of about 525 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque.
According to experts from the portal BMW Blog, X7 M will receive the same engine, but forced to a mark of at least 600 horsepower. Of course, refinement on this is not limited, and the crossover will receive a hardy sports gearbox, as well as special software that regulates the power unit, transmission and suspension.
Thus, the most powerful and expensive modifications of other large crossovers from Germany – Mercedes-Benz GLS and Audi Q7 – become the competitors of the BMW X7 M.
According to preliminary information, the standard version will be debuted in the fall, within the Frankfurt, or more likely, within the framework of the Paris Motor Show in October. Any information on the “charged” modification may appear during the presentation, or later in 2019.
Meanwhile, BMW has completely declassified the new Z4 roadster, presenting a series of official photos.
