2019 BMW X7 flagship SUV is here with three-row seating and the largest kidney grille fitted to a BMW

The 2019 BMW X7 is finally here, and there is just one way of describing the Bavarian automaker’s new flagship SUV: it is huge. It is 9 inches longer than the X5, which isn’t a small SUV by any measure, and only 3 inches shorter than the 7 Series executive sedan – this should give you a fair idea about the BMW X7’s massive dimensions. It’s also BMW’s first SUV to offer three rows of seats. BMW claims that it can comfortably fit seven full-grown adults. If that’s not all, the 2019 X7 also features the largest kidney grille ever designed for a BMW model. Designed and created primarily for the American market, the 2019 BMW X7 will compete against the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLS and the full-size Land Rover Range Rover.

In terms of styling, the new BMW X7 features sleek LED headlights and tail lamps that look similar to the ones found on the new 7 Series. The big kidney grille is massive, and gives the front-end an imposing appearance. The interior of the X7 carries the conventional BMW styling. The dash features twin 12.3-inch screens for the instruments and the infotainment. There will be two variants of the X7 on sale at the beginning: A single-turbo 3.0-liter inline-6 in the xDrive40i and a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 in the xDrive50i. The xDrive40i gets 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, while the more powerful xDrive50i with the V8 makes 456 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. Both the variants get eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. BMW will start taking pre-orders this month, with deliveries beginning in March 2019. Pricing starts at $74,895 for the xDrive40i, and $93,595 for the xDrive50i.
