The 2023 BMW X7 comes with a split headlamp cluster with an updated front fascia and an updated interior with new features and technology.
BMW has unveiled a worldwide Facelifted X7 with an amazingly new front fascia and split headlamp cluster that is unique to look at. The good news is that similar styling will be applied to the upcoming 7-Series, i7 and Alpina XB7. The narrow light strip at the bottom of the bonnet doubles as the LED turn signal of the LED DRLs and the dark headlamps under which the dark headlamps are mounted on the bumper.
Other highlights include a wide central air intake, aluminum inlets, muscular bonnet, a pair of large kidney grilles (illuminated on xDrive40i as an alternative), new C-shaped LED tail lamps extending to the steep tailgate, an updated rear bumper, glass tail etc. Cover for connector chrome bar. The optional M Sport Pack features M-spec bumpers, skid plates, glossy black trim, dark trapezoidal tailpipe and dual-tone 21-inch wheels.
The top-of-the-line M60i features an M mirror, an M-specific grille, quad exhaust pipes and a large 22-inch wheel. Other available options are BMW M 50 Years Symbol, Shadowline Trim and Black or Blue Brake Caliper. Inside, the X7 Facelift comes with a curved display that includes the latest iDrive 8 with a 14.9-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument console.
The traditional gear shifter fits a small toggle function for the iDrive while sitting next to the rotary controller. The updated BMW X7 comes with an optional digital key plus and can be as a six or seven-seater. For performance, the entry-level xDrive40i has become even more powerful as the 3.0-liter inline six-pot unit now produces 375 hp and 519 Nm (71 Nm more).
It can reach up to 540 Nm when the 48-volt light-hybrid system kicks in for help and the drive is sent on four wheels. The acceleration time from zero to 96 km per hour now stands at just 5.6 seconds. The performance-based M60i uses a 4.4-liter V8 engine that works with a 48V light-hybrid technology and delivers 523 hp and 750 Nm of power. It travels from zero to 96 kilometers per hour in just 4.5 seconds.
