BMW’s new large SUV, the X7, just made its North American debut at the 2018 LA Auto Show.
Though models of the X7 have already been shipping to Europe from the brand’s manufacturing plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, we now know exactly which models will be coming to the US market.
The BMW X7 xDrive40i is the most basic X7 available, coming with a 335-horsepower inline six-cylinder engine making 330 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power to get this big X7 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds according to the brand. If more power is a must, buyers can opt for the X7 xDriver50i that comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 458 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The run to 60 mph takes 5.2 seconds in the 50i.
Power is sent through an eight-speed automatic transmission to all four-wheels through the xDrive all-wheel drive system. A locking rear differential can be had along with an off-road package.
Three rows of seating is standard and the X7 can transport either six or seven passengers based on the configuration.
All of this won’t come cheap though, with the base X7 coming in at $73,900 for the 40i model. Upgrading to the 50i brings the price up to $92,600.
