2019 BMW X7 xDrive50i – Ultra-Luxury Full Size SUV. The X7 will come in two trims powered by two engines (both shared with the smaller X5). The first, powering the xDrive40i, is a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine producing 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The xDrive50i gets a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 pumping out 456 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is capable of accelerating the X7’s considerable mass from zero to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the gearbox for both.
As you might expect for a car of the X7’s bulk, fuel economy is less than stellar. The base engine manages an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 22 combined, while the V8 gets just 15/21/17 mpg (city/highway/combined).
The X7 comes with seating for seven in the form of a second-row bench and a two-passenger third row. That number can be reduced to six with optional second-row captain’s chairs. Even with three rows, the X7 has 48.6 cubic feet of storage behind the seats. With the second and third rows folded, capacity expands to a cavernous 90.4 cubic feet.
But BMW would like to make sure that buyers are comfortable on their way to and from the gas pump, so they’ve designed an all-new two-axle air suspension to smooth out bumps in the road. The X7 also benefits from four separate drive modes, standard all-wheel drive, and a 7,500-pound towing capacity. Safety isn’t neglected, with daytime pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert all standard.
The xDrive50i will add even more for a starting price of $93,595. In addition to the V8 engine and all the standard features of the xDrive40i, the 50i gets Vernasca leather upholstery, 20-way multi-contour front seats, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The features from the Parking Assistance and Driver Assistance Professional Packages are also included as standard. On this trim, the M-Sport Design upgrade costs $3,550.
The Cold Weather Package remains in place for $1,200, while the Dynamic Handling Package gains a forward-facing camera to anticipate suspension adjustments, but it reflects the addition with a $4,750 price tag. The Off-Road Package also expands, including an active M Sport rear differential for a total price of $2,950. The Luxury Seating Package adds ventilation and massage to the front seats for $1,200.
The Premium Package remains in place, but because a couple of the features are standard, it only costs $1,550 on this trim. It’s joined by an Executive Package ($2,100), which includes the LED-mounted moonroof, glass controls, and LED headlights that BMW proudly advertises as the brightest output legal in the USA.
Where non-standard, standalone options remain unchanged, although the Bowers & Wilkins sound system costs only $3,400 here.
