The spy shots of the upcoming 2023 BMW X7 reveals a major facelift. This flagship model was recently spied testing wearing a mild camouflage on the front and rear. Overall, mid-cycle refresh is happening, and we should expect more attractive styling outside and inside.
The front of the spied model is completely revised, with new headlights and a new grille. Also, we noticed lower positioned headlights, which should result in a more sinister, broad look. On top of that, the recognized grille kidneys on the current X7 may be split with this facelift. Production of the new X7 will starts next year in BMW’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
2023 BMW X7 Redesign
The prototype of the upcoming 2023 BMW X7 SUV rolls on the popular CLAR platform that is also available on many BMW models. This platform is capable of supporting electric powertrains, and the new 7-Series will sit on it. However, considering that front of the rear f the prototype us camouflaged, we managed to see some changes.
First of all, the face of the X7 will be completely revised, and we can see the new headlights and a new grille. As mentioned, LED headlights are present, and they are positioned lower. Thanks to that, the next-generation BMW X7 has a more brooding look, with the separated kidneys on the grille. Besides, there are minimum changes at the rear, and BMW X7 will likely get a new lower fascia and possibly some tweaks on the taillights.
The new 2023 BMW X7 will continue to be offered as a 7-seater with a handsome cabin. Either way, this large, lavish SUV provides a very roomy cabin and more amenities than before. Stepping in, you’ll notice a lot of fine leather and some wood trim. In addition, they’re also more advanced techs and a cleaner dash.
As standard, the new SUV includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that is modern and highly configurable. Other gadgets are Android Auto smartphone integration, SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L, remote start, and heating elements wherever hands, elbows, and posteriors come to rest.
2023 BMW X7 Powertrain Specs
At the moment, it isn’t clear what BMW has planned for the powertrains of the latest 2023 X7. Many believe that we will once again see the same powertrains as before. The current model is offered with three engine options. The base one is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 that produces 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque.
This engine is available choosing the xDrive40i. The next one powers M50i and it consist of a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The first time introduced last year, the new Alpina XB7 takes that engine and boosts it to 612 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. All models are connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and all-wheel drive is standard.
How Much Will 2023 BMW X7 Cost?
Production of the new 2023 BMW X7 will likely start next year in BMW’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. This model will come out with a refreshed styling and a more comfy cabin. Of course, BMW is known for advanced technology, and we expect no less to see on the new X7.
The luxury 3-row midsize SUV/crossover should cost slightly higher than the current model that starts at $74,900. More powered M50i starts at $100,795, while Alpina XB7 can push figures to $145k.
