Powerful engine delivering versatile performance.

With its powerful engine, BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system and newly-developed, precisely tuned chassis technology, the BMW X7 sticks to the proven formula ofoff-road prowess combined with excellent ride comfort and agile on-road handling for whichthe brand’s Sports Activity Vehicles are renowned.

 

A six-cylinder 3.0-litre in-line petrol unit for the BMW X7 xDrive40i is equipped with BMWTwinPower Turbo technology comprising turbocharging, High Precision Injection,VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing and Double-VANOS variable camshaft control.This perfectly balanced engine produces 340 hp at 5,500 – 6,500 rpm and a maximum 450Nm of torque from 1,500 rpm, allowing THE X7 to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.1 secondswith a maximum speed of 245 km/h. The new BMW X7 meet the requirements of the Euro6d-TEMP emissions standard with CO2 emissions of 198 g/km.

 

The eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission is fitted with a new generation of torsiondampers to limit rotational irregularities in the powertrain. The result is enhanced ride comfortand smoother gear changes. Meanwhile the task of transferring the car’s power onto eitherasphalt or loose terrain falls to the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system – completewith optimised efficiency and rear-biased set-up.

 

The BMW X7 boasts a wealth of chassis technology as standard, including Adaptivesuspension with electronically-controlled dampers, and air springs at both axles. ThexOffroad electronically controlled rear differential lock also hooks up with the DSC system.It works by limiting the equalization of the rotational speeds of the wheels on the insideand the outside of the bend and thus optimizes the transfer of power to the road indynamic driving situations. As a result, any tendency to understeer when powering throughcorners can be countered effectively. The vehicle’s ground clearance can be varied by upto 80 mm to suit the situation at hand – by either pressing a button or using the BMWDisplay Key. When SPORT driving mode is engaged or the car’s speed exceeds 138km/h, the ride height is automatically lowered by 20 mm.

 

Driver assistance systems for comfort and safety.

The progressive luxury epitomized by the new BMW X7 is further underlined by thesophisticated driver assistance systems available for enhancing comfort and safety. TheBMW X7 xDrive40i Pure Excellence comes with Cruise Control with braking function, aswell as the Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function, which also nowalerts the driver when a cyclist is detected.

 

The Parking Assistant Plus is capable of automatically selecting and maneuvering intospaces parallel to the road. The system takes care of acceleration and braking, steeringand any gear changes necessary. The surround view camera is designed to afford driversan excellent all-round view. These work together to create a 360° image of the vehicle andthe surrounding area on the Control Display.

 

A further illustration of BMW’s ongoing progress towards automated driving is provided bythe Reversing Assistant. When leaving a parking space or manoeuvring in a confinedarea, this function offers a level of assistance as yet unmatched by any othermanufacturer. The Reversing Assistant forms part of the standard Parking Assistant andoffers the highly convenient facility of automated reversing in confined spaces or situationswhere the driver does not have a clear view, such as multi-storey car parks or entrances tocourtyards. The system is then able to reverse the vehicle for distances of up to 50 metersby steering it along exactly the same line it took when moving forward; all the driver has todo is operate the accelerator and brake pedals and monitor the surrounding area. This means the Reversing Assistant can be used to maneuver the new BMW X7 backwards outof a parking position that it drove into forwards the preceding day.
