The updated BMW X7 has a new look, new engines and new tech. Pricing starts at $166,900 before on-road costs.

Published

BMW has detailed Australian pricing and specifications for its overhauled X7 SUV ahead of first vehicles arriving in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Pricing starts at $166,900 before on-road costs for the entry-level xDrive40d and extends to $197,900 before on-road costs for the flagship M60i.

This xDrive40d is $26,000 more expensive than the outgoing xDrive30d, and the M60i is $8000 more expensive than the outgoing M50i.

There’s a new look, with split-level lighting up front and a rear LED light bar with a three-dimensional design.

The backlit Iconic Glow grille from the X6 SUV is now standard on the range-topping X7 M60i xDrive, and is optional on the xDrive40d.

Inside, the X7 has gained the latest OS8.0 infotainment system that debuted in the i4 and iX electric cars. It combines a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch central touchscreen, with an intelligent personal assistant, a central rotary dial, and touch inputs.

The range-topping M60i uses a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine derived from that used by the X5 M Competition which produces 390kW of power and 750Nm of torque.

Although the engine itself is new, those outputs are unchanged to the outgoing M50i.

The new xDrive40d packs 259kW and 720Nm from its 3.0-litre inline-six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, up 64kW and 100Nm on the outgoing xDrive30d.

Other new notable features that are available for the first time on the X7 include an optional six-seat configuration and 23-inch alloy wheels.

Pricing

  • 2023 BMW X7 xDrive40d: $166,900
  • 2023 BMW X7 M60i: $197,900

All prices include GST and LCT but exclude on-road costs.

Drivetrains

The 2023 BMW X7 xDrive40d is powered by a 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system, with total system outputs of 259kW of power and 720Nm of torque.

BMW claims the X7 xDrive40d can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 5.9 seconds.

The range-topping X7 M60i on the other hand uses a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine producing 390kW and 750Nm. It can do the 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 4.7 seconds.

Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with drive sent to all four wheels through an xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Both models have a 48V mild-hybrid system which comprises a crankshaft-mounted starter generator integrated into the transmission and contributes an additional 9kW and 200Nm.

Efficiency

The 2023 BMW X7 uses 8.0L/100km on the combined cycle in xDrive40d guise and 12.2L/100km in the M60i.
