BMW X7 xDrive40i variant set for local launch in Q4

BMW will enhance its flagship X7 SUV line-up with a new six-cylinder petrol variant. Set to launch towards the end of this year, the xDrive40i is powered by the car maker’s renowned six-cylinder TwinPower turbo engine.

It’s the same powerplant found in the new BMW X5 and X6, and integrates 48-volt mild hybrid technology to deliver 280kW of power and peak torque of 520Nm. The latter can be boosted to 540Nm with help from the MHEV setup.

The system comprises a crankshaft-mounted starter generator, integrated in the transmission housing, and used as a starter motor to fire the combustion engine. At the same time it recuperates kinetic energy during coasting and braking.

The new engine partners with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, including shift paddles on the steering wheel. Engine power is channelled to the road – or unsurfaced terrain, if required – via the intelligent all-wheel-drive system BMW xDrive.

The new X7 xDrive40i will join the xDrive40d and M60i – both of which launched late last year – with specification mirroring that of the former. It includes an M Sport package and 22-inch light alloy wheels as standard.

BMW Individual Leather Merino upholstery, an Alcantara headliner, 5-zone air conditioning, an automatic split tailgate with contactless opening function and Comfort seats also feature, along with BMW Live Cockpit Professional.

The latte provides a 14.9-inch curved control display and BMW Operating System 8.5. Connected Package and Driving Assistant Professional are also included, along with a 16-speaker surround sound Harman Kardon audio system.

A head-up display, and illuminated “Iconic Glow” BMW kidney grille features, alongside a panorama glass roof, Parking Assistant Professional, and tyre pressure monitoring. Buyers can also opt for a Design Pure Excellence styling package.

No matter the choice, the 2024 BMW X7 xDrive40i is priced from $167,900 plus on-roads. To find out more, talk to your local BMW dealer. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
