According to a document leak, the upcoming BMW X7 will be offered with at least three different engines. The X7 xDrive 40i could come equipped with a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder developing 335 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. There’s also a reference to an X7 xDrive 50i which hints at a 4.4-liter TwinTurbo Turbo V8 engine developing 445 hp (332 kW) and 479 lb-ft (648 Nm) of torque. A diesel model is also offered, the X7 xDrive40d, with a 3.0 liter engine as well.

BMW is likely to offer the X7 with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, alongside conventional engines. Other models will likely be offered as well, with powertrains specific to individual markets.

The upcoming BMW X7 will be the brand’s largest, most luxurious SUV and will act as a sort of flagship for the brand. It will pack three rows, with seven seats, making it ideal for larger families. The design will likely share a lot of its styling with its smaller sibling, the X5. However, it’s noticeably longer and has more of a rear greenhouse than the X5.

When it arrives in the U.S., likely next year as a 2019 model, it will top BMW’s range of SUVs and will compete against the Range Rover and Mercedes-GLS. It will enter production at BMW’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina alongside the X3, X4, X5, and X6 crossovers.
