The fully redesigned BMW 750i xDrive for 2017 aims to get back its groove back with proven powertrains, a raft of new technologies, and standard long-wheelbase dimensions. Some of its upsides for 2017 include a standard adaptive air suspension capable of enhancing both control and comfort; desirable and plentiful luxury features; impeccably refined engines, and a standard long-wheelbase version sibling that is aimed at improving the rear legroom. Its release date should be expected in August this year.
The outgoing 7 Series is without a doubt an excellent car by most standards, but new and redesigned vehicles are consistently being produced each day and, as such, a fresher model must be released every so often in order to give its buyers a freshening appeal even if it’s unnecessary sometimes.
The 2017 model brings forth a slew of important upgrades and executive appeal over the previous model. Top on the list of one such intriguing upgrade is the standard long-wheelbase version. It measures an impressive 126.4” between the wheels, this represents a 2” more than what the Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers.
This, for starters, represents plenty of legroom for the backseat passengers. Another notable upgrade for the 7 Series executive sedan is the standard Active Comfort Drive (camera-based predictive program) system. This program monitors the prevailing pavement conditions in real-time in order to ensure uninterrupted ride quality. The program compares to the S-Class “Magic Body Control.”
Also for 2017, the 7 Series continues to impress with its impressive engine lineup just like the outgoing model. The 750i xDrive comes equipped with a 4.4L turbocharged V8 juggernaut engine rated at 445 horsepower. The 740i rear-wheel drive also offers an impressive 3.0L turbocharged inline-six engine rated at 320 hp.
The new 2017 BMW 750i xDrive isn’t in a class of its own, and will have to compete with other top-rated vehicles. The nearest bogey for the 750I xDrive is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Others include the 2016 Porsche Panamera, the Jaguar XJ 2017, and the 2017 Audi A8. Nevertheless, the 750i xDrive remains one of the best cars in the segment and we highly recommend it for anyone looking for prestige, and performance.
