BMW X7 seven-seat crossover gets rendered

Article by Andrew Christian, on May 19, 2014

BMW officially announced the X7 seven-seat SUV earlier this year and all we know until today is that it will be based on the X5 SUV. As a result, the Master of Photoshop a.k.a. Theophilus Chin decided to make some renderings of the upcoming vehicle.

Honestly to tell you, the X7 looks pretty damn good and of course, clearly inspired by the smaller X5. The front end of the rendering is dominated by the big kidney grille, while the rear end resembles the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

The new seven-seat crossover will be built at BMW’s Spartanburg site in South Carolina and will arrive in 2017 or 2018. China and the United States are seen as the biggest market for this crossover.

The BMW X7 is expected to use the same engines as the X5, which means we will find a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 450 hp and 650 Nm of torque but also the popular 3.0-liter diesel engine that generates 258 hp and 560 Nm of torque.

A more powerful tri-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine is also expected to be used and will deliver 381 hp and 740 Nm of torque.

BMW also announced a $1 billion investment at its Spartanburg site in South Carolina by 2016 as it plans to expand its production capacity by 100,000 units. Currently, the Spartanburg site builds the X3, X4 and X6. [source: TheOphilus Chin]
