With up to 565 hp, this is going to be a powerful cruiser.
The all-new 2023 BMW 7 Series is set to be unveiled with a new iDrive 8 infotainment system and an all-new design that looks like it will be rather polarizing. We're expecting this to be a truly special machine with all kinds of tech advances, even if our government doesn't allow us to experience all of them domestically. And according to BMW Blog, there will be aspects of the car that the keen driving enthusiast will enjoy too.
The publication reports that we can expect plenty of power and even a selection of M Performance parts, but more on that later. For now, let's see what we can expect to find under the hood.
We've reported on some of the expected engine options before, but it's worth revisiting these to see how the new potential output slots into the lineup. The B58 3.0-liter straight-six turbo will likely be offered in the G70 7 Series, as will the B67. The former engine is also said to be getting a detuned version for the 735i with 270 horsepower while the 740i would get 370 hp. The 745e, which is hybridized with electric motors, will produce as much as 480 hp, but the new M Performance model is the one that will wow. This model will get an astonishing 565 hp.
However, this likely won't be called the M7. BMW has thankfully kept its full-fat M treatment away from the luxury limo thus far and is expected to continue this tradition. Instead, it will be known as the M750e.
Of course, all of these gas-powered models will pale in comparison to the output of the electric i7, which will be the most powerful 7 ever made with a whopping 650 hp in the i7 M60 model. The 750i is also going to be fun, with rumors claiming that this model will get an M-developed S68 V8 engine that is expected to be fitted to the range-topping XM SUV. Here, it will make around 545 horses and come with AWD, which would make it the most powerful of the combustion-engine models on offer. We'll know more closer to the production start date of July 2022.
