of BMW X7 it entered the market 3 years ago, in 2019, while its official unveiling was made in October 2018. Today, it is one of the most popular models of the brand, and BMW expects to continue in this line. So the X7 update has been launched.

Check with the interior

This new BMW X7 is offered in two versions: 40i, and M60, which replaces the lost M50. The 40i version, the tamer of the two, has headlights that dramatically change the look of the SUV. We also see that the rear lights have been changed, and that a new style of rim is available.

The M60 version, meanwhile, is also equipped with the same new headlights, but offers a more aggressive style. The front and rear bumpers are carried over from the old M50, as are the quad tailpipes. This version also offers an illuminated front grille as a standard feature, while the 40i version offers it as an option.

The cabin has also been updated to accommodate the new infotainment system

iDrive 8, with a new 14.9-inch touchscreen now integrated into the dashboard. This is also the same screen found on board the new i4 and iX.

More power

For North America, two new engines are available under the bonnet of the 40i and M60. Both are powered by a 48-volt light hybrid engine.

First of all, there is a new inline 6 cylinder tucked under the hood of the 40i version. It develops 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft, an increase of 47 horsepower and 70 lb-ft over the 2022 model year version of the 40i.

The M60 version, new for 2023, offers 530 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. It’s a 4.4-liter 8-cylinder turbo engine that provides all the power, and it’s also the same engine that was found under the hood of the 2022 M50 version.

Nothing is confirmed, but we can expect the Alpina version to go on sale in the coming months or years, as the manufacturer did with the previous generation BMW X7.
