The BMW 7 Series
2017 BMW 7 Series Engines
Naturally, a vehicle that is as fully bespoke as the 2017 BMW 7 Series should offer a selection from among two different powertrains (plus two more on the horizon). At the top of the range is the twin-turbocharged V8 750i with 450 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, making it the choice of VIPs who prefer to exit situations gracefully and very quickly. Next on the menu is the anything-but-entry-level turbocharged inline-six 740i that pumps out 326 hp and 332 lb-ft of twist. And if you can hold out for long-term yields, BMW is set to release two more fuel-economy-conscious powerplants, including turbodiesel and plug-in hybrid models.

2017 BMW 7 Series Interior
As the archetypal BMW sedan, the 7 Series may be resolute and serious in its exterior dignity, but is surely to attract awe through its interior elegance. Polished inlaid walnut panels trim the dashboard and door sides, contoured with multiple tones of tanned, quilted, and perforated Nappa leather. Combined with gorgeous ambient lighting, silky, brushed aluminum trim, and a removable Android tablet to control all comfort and entertainment options from the rear executive lounge, the new 7 Series marries noble elegance with new-school technology. We think this is no accident. Finally, 16-speaker available Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system are sure to rekindle that former excitement from when you opened the box of your first CD player.
2017 BMW 7 Series Safety
Due to the exclusivity and low production volume of the new 7 Series, it is not scheduled to be crash tested by the North American government or insurance agencies. But that shouldn’t be a cause for concern. The 2017 7 Series comes standard with a full airbag suite, including driver knee and rear seat side airbags. The sophisticated active safety features are also worth an extended stare: BMW’s new gesture control feature uses a 3D camera to track your hand movements, allowing you to change the volume, dismiss incoming calls, and perform you own pre-selected commands while keeping your eyes on the road.
2017 BMW 7 Series Display Key
What will perhaps be the defining feature of the re-engineered 7 Series is BMW’s Display Key. So much more than a tool for entering your car and starting it, the new Display Key allows you to check if the doors are locked, monitor vehicle status (fuel level, driving range, service updates), and perform the latest BMW party trick: remote parking. All that’s required is you pull up to your parking spot or garage space of choice, get out, and the new 7 Series will park itself with press of a button on the key’s LCD touchscreen interface saving you time and effort and giving you a perfect parking job every time.
BMW 7 Series Parts & Accessories

2017 BMW 7 Series Long Wheelbase
The 7 Series’ Long Wheelbase affords copious legroom and an optional infotainment system for rear passengers. Available multi-contour seats and heated armrests add to the feeling of true luxury, and fine details and bespoke touches like the wood-trimmed seat-belts add to the refined, sophisticated look of the Long Wheelbase variant.
