2019 BMW X7: Everything You Need to Know
About the 2019 BMW X7:
The all-new 2019 BMW X7 is the German automaker’s largest-ever SUV. The three-row, full-size X7 sports the traditional look of a BMW, but with a larger signature grille and more pronounced curves. With seating for seven, the SUV boasts a spacious cabin and BMW’s latest infotainment system.
It enters an ever-growing competitive segment. The X7 is late to the market but boasts the very latest in modern features.
This 2019 BMW X7 is built at BMW’s factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It’s exported globally from this single production point.
What’s New in the 2019 BMW X7?
BMW introduced the X7 in spring 2019 to sit atop the automaker’s SUV lineup. The seven-passenger utility vehicle features three rows of seating and standard all-wheel drive. The 2019 BMW X7 is available in two trims:
- xDrive40i: The base model runs on a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder engine
- xDrive50i: The top trim gets a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8
Each can be ordered with BMW’s standard luxury design package or with the more muscular M Sport treatment. A high-performance M version of the X7, the 523-horsepower M50i, starts at $99,600 for the 2020 model year. The M version sports features from BMW’s high-performance M Badge: an M Sport Differential, M Sport Brakes and an M Sport Exhaust System.
Exterior colors include Alpine White, Arctic Grey, Vermont Bronze, Carbon Black, Black Sapphire, Mineral White, and Dark Graphite. There are up to ten different upholstery colors offered for full customization.
What Does the 2019 BMW X7 Compete With?
BMW X7’s top competitors include:
The BMW X7’s xDrive40i base model runs on a 335-horsepower, 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine and can reach a top speed of 130 mph. The xDrive50i is powered by a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 that generates 456 horsepower.
Like its rivals, BMW’s largest SUV provides advanced technology features, a comfortable cabin with ample room for taller adults, and robust all-wheel drive performance.
Exterior Design of the 2019 BMW X7
The BMW X7 adapts BMW’s signature look to a bigger body. The full-size SUV boasts the brand’s largest-ever kidney grille. The X7 measures 9 inches longer than BMW’s bestselling vehicle, the mid-size X5 SUV.
The X7’s exterior showcases a more upright stance than the low-slung profile of its smaller siblings. All models have a panoramic moonroof, rain-detecting windshield wipers and a power liftgate. Twenty-one inch alloys wheels that can be upgraded to 22 inches.
Buyers can add an LED Sky Lounge Roof option. This spreads colored light across the glass pane to illuminate more than 15,000 graphic patterns. The display evokes the nighttime sky.
Interior Style in the 2019 BMW X7
The 2019 BMW X7’s standard cabin features seating for seven across its three rows. Buyers may also swap the second-row bench seat for two captain’s chairs. This lowers the SUV’s seating capacity to six.
All X7s have leather upholstery, heated and 16-way power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and four-zone automatic climate control. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster runs the latest version of BMW’s iDrive infotainment system.
The touchscreen and physical buttons are accessible from the driver and passenger seat. The iDrive system allows users to control functions with physical gestures and hand movements.
The SUV provides plenty of interior storage. The X7 boasts front and rear cupholders, glovebox, seatback pockets, and storage bin inside center console. Heated and cooled cupholders for the front seat are optional.
Although the 2019 BMW X7 plenty of room for passengers, its cargo area is small for an SUV of its size. Folding the third-row seats down provides more space for groceries, suitcases, or golf bags.
Technology: What Technology Comes in the 2019 BMW X7?
The 2019 BMW X7 comes equipped with a long list of standard technology features. These include a wireless charging pad, Apple CarPlay, navigation, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot and two USB ports. A 10-speaker stereo system pumps out the HD and satellite radio.
Buyers may upgrade to features such as :
- A 12- to 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system
- A 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system
What Kind of Safety Features are in the 2019 BMW X7?
The 2019 BMW X7 comes standard with more advanced driver assistance safety features found in most cars. Parking aids include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, pedestrian detection, and rear cross traffic alert. Automatic braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and blind spot monitoring assist while on the road. Adaptive headlights, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing windshield wipers complete the extensive suite of safety.
For $1,700, buyers may add BMW’s Driving Assistance Professional package, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision assist, lane keep assist, lane control assist, and emergency stop assist.
What is the 2019 BMW X7 like to drive?
With its powerful engine lineup and dynamic handling, driving the 2019 BMW X7 offers a nimble ride for its gargantuan proportions. Its large windows provide clear visibility.
The xDrive40i model gets a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder engine that delivers 335 horsepower. The xDrive50i runs on a 456-horsepower, 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Both are mated to BMW’s smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. Models equipped with the inline six-cylinder and V8 engines can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds and 5.8 seconds, respectively. However, the SUV can feel top-heavy around corners and curves.
Inside, the refined cabin provides comfortable seating and ample head- and legroom for adult passengers.
Should I Buy a Current 2019 BMW X7?
BMW brings its reputation for reliability, power and sporty handling to its newest and largest SUV. Luxurious and restful, the 2019 BMW X7 provides a high-end experience inside a strong exterior.
Should I buy a Used BMW X7? Are There Any I Should Avoid?
The BMW X7 was launched for the 2019 model year so used versions will be hard to find. Check your local dealer for test drivers.
How Much Does the 2019 BMW X7 Cost?
