It's hard to believe that this is the first full-size SUV the manufacturer has offered in the period since first releasing the crossover X5 in 1999. If you are looking for a luxury vehicle that offers a high-performance driving experience with the interior space you need, keep reading to learn more about the X7, BMW's all-new model for 2019.

Some of the stand-out features, in addition to its size, include the rather large front grille and LED lights. The X7 beltline is completely different from BMW's previous offerings. The boxier rear is a nice departure from the X5 as well. The company has mentioned that the introduction of the X7 was prompted in part by their desire to compete more effectively with Cadillac, Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz in the full-size SUV category. In order to compete with the larger SUVs on the market, the X7 stretches beyond the 5-meter mark. Early reports are describing the X7 as the larger, bulkier, and roomier counterpart to the newly updated X5. In fact, many of the same design updates to the 2019 X5 model are also a part of the X7.

The interior does not disappoint with its state-of-the-art tech offerings and luxury features that one has come to expect from BMW. This all-new model offers a true third-row seating component and features that are also included in the top-of-the-line 7 Series. One of the features that the car industry is most excited about is the iDrive system. This futuristic feature allows the driver to use hand gestures to navigate the vehicle via 3D sensors. The Touch Command works with a 7-inch tablet that is removable allowing rear passengers to control the infotainment system.

There are three engines options available: the 3.0-liter diesel, the 3.0-liter inline six, and a 4.4-liter V8. These are options that are all available with X5 as well. The 3.0 gas engine provides 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The newly updated and overhauled V8 now has 456 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. The diesel 3.0 has 261hp and 457 pound-feet of torque. If you opt for the 4.4 diesel, you can expect 561 pound-feet of torque and 394hp.

Early estimates of cost range from $70,000 for the base model and $85,000+ for the top of the model range option. While it is still unknown if BMW will offer a high-performance M option for the all-new model X7, but it is estimated that this model would start at around $120,000. Car industry experts are watching with great interest to see how this full-size offering from BMW competes with the options available from Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, and Range Rover.
