The redesigned 2023 BMW X7 has been spied testing for the second time this year, wrapped in camo. From what we’ve seen, it seems like the next generation X7 will only arrive with a mid-cycle refresh.
In general, the next X7 will come with the more radical look compared to its predecessor. It isn’t clear what BMW has planned for the engines, but there are many speculations about it. The current X7 offers inline-6 and V8 units, including a high-performance V8. We also expect BMW to introduce its next-generation 7-Series at the same time as the X7.
2023 BMW X7 Redesign
As mentioned, the next-gen 2023 BMW X7 will receive some mild upgrades here and there. At first glance, we noticed that the face of the X7 would be revised, thanks to split headlights and a new grille. The changes on the front will also include a positioned lower LED headlight, which should result in a more brooding look.
However, considering the changes of the all-other X models, the kidneys of the grille may be split with this facelift. However, changes at the back are likely to be minimal. As we can see, there’s a new design for the lower fascia and the manufacturer added a new exhaust tip, as well as a slightly revised taillight.
The cabin of the new 2023 BMW X7 could also be updated with more materials and technology. Unfortunately, there is no single spy shot inside. It’s possible the interior of the next X7 will be updated with the same technology designed for the next 7-Series.
That means the next BMW X7 will a be step up in luxury compared to the current generation. In general, we expect the X7 to come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, satellite radio, two USB ports, navigation, gesture control, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration. Also, 464-watt/16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system should be standard equipment.
It isn’t clear what BMW will offer under the hood of the X7, but there are many speculations about it. The current X7 is powered by a choice of a few engines.
All starts with a standard inline-6 and it goes to V8 units, including a high-performance V8. Considering the X7 is using the CLAR platform that supports electric powertrains, a plug-in option is likely. It`s also destined for the next 7-Series. In fact, the electric 7-Series prototype is already being tested.
When Can We Expect the 2023 BMW X7?
Production of the current BMW X7 is handled at BMW’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. So, the same case will be with an updated version. We also heard many rumors about the X8, and that it would be closely related to the X7.
The X8 should also be built at the same plant. The price of the next-generation model is not yet determined, but we are hoping it will be in the coming months. As before, the German’s three-row SUV will continue to compete with models such as the Audi Q7, Volvo CX90, and the Range Rover.
