There is also a straight-six diesel engine under the bonnet of the new BMW 740d xDrive and BMW 740Ld xDrive with a maximum output of 320hp and peak torque of 680Nm. The BMW 740d xDrive accelerates from zero to 62mph 5.3 seconds (BMW 740Ld xDrive: 5.4 seconds).
As seen here, the 2019 BMW 7 Series looks very different from the outgoing model. At the front, the iconic BMW kidney grille is larger than ever before, while the headlights are slimmer. At the back, the taillights have been remodeled to complement the thinner look of the front headlights. The LED, three-dimensional rear lights of the new BMW 7 Series are 1.4 inches slimmer than on the outgoing car. The integration of the light bar is actually quite seamless and looks really slick. The integrated exhaust tailpipes have broader chrome surrounds, while the three-dimensional rear lights of the new BMW 7 Series are around 35 millimeters slimmer than on the outgoing car.
A few new colors are available on the 7 Series; Bernina Grey Amber Effect Metallic, Royal Burgundy Red Metallic and Donington Grey Metallic. Customers can also choose from four selected BMW Individual paint options, including the new shades Dravit Grey metallic, Tanzanite Blue II metallic and Aventurin Red metallic which replace outgoing Ruby Black metallic, Moonstone Metallic and Almandine Brown metallic. Azurite Black metallic joins the new Individual paints as a carry-over.
In the UK, the new BMW 7 Series is on sale now with prices starting from £69,565.
