Designed for The Driven. This is the New 7
The facelifted BMW 7 Series Sedan stands for self-assured presence, exceptional performance and maximum comfort. Now in its sixth generation this luxury sedan receives an extensive update in design, technology and powertrain.
The most notable feature is the featured BMW kidney grille – now framed by a single-piece surround with a surface area that has grown by 40 per cent. BMW has also added a new hood with sculpted contours. The reshaped rear end features a full-length light strip and wider exhaust surrounds.
Slender LED lights come standard with BMW Laserlight available as an option. The selection of exterior paint finishes are offered in new metallic and individual options, in addition to newly redesigned alloy wheels ranging from 19 to 21 inches in size.
Hop inside the cabin and you will find new interior improvements including the latest digital instrument cluster. This in combination with trim strips, leather-covered surfaces and acoustic comfort offers both driver and passengers a luxurious on-board experience.
BMW is also proud to introduce a comprehensively redeveloped 4.4-litre V8. It now generates 523 horsepower (80 horsepower more than the engine it replaces) and up to 553 pound-feet of torque (74 pound-feet more than the outgoing model). Spearheading the lineup of engines is the V12 for the M760i xDrive with 600 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.
The new 7 Series will also be offered in a plug-in hybrid version at launch. The new drive technology for the plug-in hybrid consists of a specially adapted six-cylinder inline engine, an electric motor with a rated output of 113 horsepower and a rated torque of 195 pound-feet, and a new lithium-ion battery with increased capacity.
This luxury sedan’s traction, agility and handling stability receives a boost with the addition of BMW xDrive. The intelligent all-wheel drive system is networked with the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system and employs an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch to precisely distribute torque between the front and rear wheels.
The 2020 BMW 7 Series is set to hit showroom this coming spring. Prices will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
