The New 2023 BMW X7
The exclusive, opulent, and versatile BMW X7 was an instant hit upon its debut in 2018. It immediately staked its claim as a flagship model not just in the BMW lineup up, but among all automakers. For the 2023 model year, the X7 gets across the board updates to keep it on the cutting edge.
Packed with more technology, more sportiness, and a new look, the all-new X7 once again leads the pack. The new design features an updated front end with a new interpretation of the twin headlight design. For the first time ever, a split headlight separates the daytime driving lights and headlights. Optional on the X7 xDrive40i and standard on the X6 M60i, the illuminated kidney grill provides a cascading lighting effect to further accentuate the grill. At the rear, three-dimensional L-shaped LED taillights compliment the new headlights. New color options include Sparkling Copper Grey metallic and, exclusive to the M60, M Marina Bay Blue. Also available are around 40 BMW Individual colors. In addition, for the first time ever, 23-inch light-alloy wheels are available as an option.
New for the 2023 model year is the M Sport Professional package. This includes an Extended Shadowline Trim, M Sport exhaust system, and M Sport brakes finished in black or blue. Also, in celebration of 50 years of BMW M, buyers of the M60 can opt to have the traditional BMW roundel replaced with a “BMW M 50 Years” emblem.
On the inside, drivers are greeted with an all-new BMW Curved Display with iDrive 8. A 12.3 inch Information Display combines with a 14.9 Central Control Display to surround the driver. An ambient light bar also makes its debut give the rest of the cabin exclusive backlighting.
The 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-6 in the xDrive40i gets an additional 40 horsepower, for a total of 375. In the M60, the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 makes a robust 523 horsepower and does 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. Both engines make use of a 48V mild hybrid system. In addition to efficiency benefits, the 48V can also increase boost, raising the torque of the inline-6 from 383 lb-ft to 398 lb-ft with a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds.
The 2023 BMW X7 xDrive40i starts at $77,850 while the X7 M60 starts at $103,100. Both are set to enter production in Q3 2022. An all-new ALPINA XB7 is set to arrive in 2023.
