The 2020 BMW X7 M50i is quite the SUV. There’s seating for seven passengers in a spacious interior that even basketball players will find roomy. They’ll also find it luxurious with rich leather and wood trims and comfortable seats creating a truly upscale experience. It’s impossible not to enjoy your time in the X7. It makes the prospect of a long-distance road trip quite appealing even if you have no destination in mind.
There are lots of luxury SUVs and although the X7 is leagues above most, where it truly outdoes the other guys is when it comes to performance. Let’s throw some numbers out there. Power comes from a 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 with 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Hit the gas in this thing and it moves.
There’s substance to the X7 so it doesn’t feel light, but instead feels incredibly powerful. It’s aggressive and bold, sort of like the giant grille adorning the front end. You’ll either love that or hate it, but it’s hard to have any quibbles with performance.
The 2020 BMW X7 M50i delivers luxury for the whole family with performance that will make your heart beat a little faster. ~ Text by Nicole Wakelin; pictures courtesy of BMW
