The X7 will be produced in Spartanburg, South Carolina, in the assembly factory which will have a billion dollar upgrade in order to be fully capable of dealing with the task this complex. If this doesn’t convince you about the extravagance and quality a new model will offer, then there is simply no way of pleasing you, and we mean that in a bad way. The BMW X7 will be the most luxurious model yet offered, which will provide its passengers with more than enough space, comfort and equipment, while its powertrain will be very powerful and with great performance. The model is announced as a 2018 model, so the details and exact feature of the new SUV are still unknown and scare, but if the rumors, and bits of information we have are to be trusted, the new model will make a huge impact on everyone, taking a hold of a huge piece of market segment as it gets released.
Appearance Of 2018 BMW X7
The 2018 BMW X7 will have similar design to the other BMW SUV called the X5. Of course, the new model will be bigger than the latter, offering more space and comfort, but its appearance will be based on the current design language used for all BMW models released in the recent past or scheduled for the near future. On the other hand, the new SUV will feature certain styling details which will be strictly reserved for its appearance, thus setting it apart from any other model. Since the vehicle will belong to the luxury market segment, and since it will have a fierce and serious competition, we expect the model’s look to be flawless, meaning it will be very dominant and elegant, with fantastic and tasteful detail and fluent and smooth lines. In addition, the 2018 BMW X7 will use the same modular platform which underpins the X5 and Rolls Royce SUVs, only it will be bigger and with bigger wheelbase than the one under the X5. The fact that aforementioned models use it as well suggests its quality and durability. In addition, the platform will be improved, so it is expected that it will weigh less by using more aluminum and high-strength steel, but it will remain as sturdy and reliable as it is now. This will reduce the model’s weigh, thus having a direct impact on its fuel economy, performance and agility.
