2023 BMW X7 is a lovable, luxurious three-row SUV for an affluent family. Sadly, the cargo bay and rearmost seats aren’t as spacious as rivals like the Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Mercedes-Benz GLS-class. But the Beemer sports better-driving behavior as well as an excellent choice of engines. The choices range from a 375-hp turbo-six to a 523-hp twin-turbo V8, while the latter makes 630 hp on the highest-class, max-performing Alpina XB7. All variants have all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension as standard providing a beautiful pillow-like ride. The 2023 X7’s interior is blissful but covered with only the highest-quality upscale materials available. Also, with modern tech such as the giant curved glass display on the dash. These features, along with the X7’s towing capability make it the biggest BMW and one of the best.
The 2023 X7 receives a mid-cycle refresh that includes a more expressive front end and a new dashboard design with a huge digital display and BMW’s latest infotainment system. The largest BMW SUV also has more standard features and new driver-assistance technology. The X7 also benefits from updated powertrains. The car has all the desirable standard features, which include four-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, power-adjustable front seats with memory settings, heated front seats, and a power tailgate. Also, choices like Vernasca leather upholstery choices and the Premium package includes a head-up display, gesture controls, and soft-close doors.
Engine & Performance
The entry-level X7 xDrive40i is powered by a 375-hp turbocharged inline-six-cylinder, and the M60i has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 523 horsepower. The Alpina XB7 has a specially tuned version of that V-8, which develops 630 horsepower. All three engines pair with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The V-8 model’s name changes from M50i to M60i, and its new twin-turbo 4.4-liter and 48-volt hybrid system are claimed to form a more efficient duo. When the Alpina XB7 arrives, it’ll have an even more powerful setup than the M60i which makes 630 horsepower. Every X7 floats on air suspension with adaptive dampers, and it can be further enhanced with available rear-axle steering and active anti-roll bars. The smallest wheels measure 21 inches, but for the first time BMW now also offers 23-inches.
|2023 BMW X7 Mileage
The six-pot xDrive40i has estimated at 24 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. However, for those who want a little more smoke from the V8–powered version will have to sacrifice some fuel efficiency. The M60i is rated at 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway, and we currently don’t have estimates for the Alpina model.
