Okay, so we’ve seen the concept, the spy photos and glimpses of the actual pre-production models straight from its factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Now, juicy details have just surfaced, this time detailing in full the features of the BMW X7, particularly the xDrive50i variant.

A quick check on the VIN number reveals that the xDrive50i (development code G07) will get the N63M engine, displacing 4.4 litres (not to be confused with the M5‘s S63B44T4 engine), turbocharged to produce 456 hp. No torque figures are available at the time of writing, but expect 550 Nm at the very least. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic, channeling drive to all four wheels as denoted by the xDrive moniker.

Standard equipment for this variant include sports leather steering wheel, run-flat tyres, high-gloss interior wood trimmings, BMW ConnectedDrive and BMW Connected. The options list however, reveals a plethora of items for customers to choose from.

This begins with BMW Display Key with remote engine start, comfort access system, automatic soft closing doors, electrically adjustable comfort seats with massage function, rear seat entertainment professional, Harman Kardon surround sound system, panoramic glass roof with sky lounge and a five-zone automatic climate control.

Mechanically, customers can opt for the M Sport differential, 22-inch V-spoke alloys with run-flat rubbers and X off-road package. Other upgrades include automatic high-beam headlights control, anti-dazzle high-beam assist, LED fog lights, real-time traffic information, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, night vision with object recognition, head-up display, BMW Concierge services and ambient lighting.

On the whole, it looks to be brimming with Bavaria’s latest toys and gadgetries. It will be launched by end-2018, featuring a range of six- and eight-cylinder engines, as well as a 6.6 litre twin-turbo V12 that makes 610 hp and 800 Nm. Expect an iPerformance plug-in hybrid model to join the line-up as well. So, what do you think of the new X7? Fancy much?
