In-Depth Look at the 2025 BMW X7: Features, Specs, and More

Today, I’ll be reviewing the all-new 2025 BMW X7. This SUV is a bit smaller and sportier than both the Escalade and GLS, despite having a similar size. The model I’m discussing today comes well-equipped with many options, although not all, and has an original MSRP of $89,000. It’s an excellent example to showcase the differences in the new 2025 platform, which I’ll dive into right now.

Exterior and Performance

The BMW X7 X Drive 40i stands out with its 8.7 inches of clearance and a standard 2-axle air suspension. While rivals like the Grand Wagoneer may excel off-road, the X7 focuses on performance. Competing against the Range Rover Sport, it offers similar amenities at a lower price point, under six figures.

Key exterior features include LED headlights, daytime running lights, and an illuminated grille, thanks to the inport professional package. The active grille shutter and gloss black highlights enhance its sleek look.

With front and rear parking sensors, a 360° reverse camera, and 3D view with Park View, maneuvering this SUV is a breeze. The upgraded 22-inch wheels and M sport brakes (four-piston caliper in front and single floating caliper in the rear) add to its sporty appeal.

Under the hood, the B58 BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine produces 375 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, it achieves 20 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. The X7’s weight distribution (48/52) is impressive, even outperforming the M60i in some respects.

Interior Comfort and Technology

Step inside the X7, and you’ll find a spacious and luxurious interior. The ambient lighting, X7 badging, satin aluminum accents, and wood inlays create a premium feel. The cifin interior offers 20-way power seat adjustments, heated and ventilated seats with perforated leather, and contrast stitching. Memory settings for both driver and passenger seats ensure personalized comfort.

The dashboard features a curved panel with two screens: a 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display and a 12.3-inch driver information display.

Both support wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, AM/FM radio, Bluetooth audio, and over-the-air updates. The premium package adds gesture control and an upgraded Harman Kardon sound system.

Practicality is not sacrificed for luxury. The power trunk lid opens to 12.8 cubic feet of storage, expandable to 90.4 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. The split-folding seats and adjustable air suspension make loading cargo easy.

Driving Experience

Driving the X7 is a joy. Its 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds is impressive for a vehicle weighing over 5,400 pounds. The standard all-wheel drive, combined with the well-distributed weight, ensures excellent handling. Whether you’re navigating city streets or winding country roads, the X7 offers a smooth, responsive ride.

Competitors to consider

The 2025 BMW X7 is up against some serious competition in the luxury SUV market. Key rivals include the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, Audi Q7, and Land Rover Range Rover.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, with its turbocharged 3.0L I6 and more powerful 4.0L V8 engines, is a strong contender. It also features the advanced MBUX infotainment system with gesture control and comprehensive driver assistance technologies, making it a top choice for those seeking luxury and performance​​.

Another competitor is the Audi Q7, which stands out for its sleek interior, impressive handling, and cutting-edge tech features. The Q7 comes with a choice of a 3.0L V6 or a 4.0L V8 engine, offering both power and efficiency. Its highlights include the Virtual Cockpit display, head-up display, and massaging seats, ensuring a luxurious driving experience​​.

In addition to these established competitors, new players like the 2025 Infiniti QX80 are also making waves, aiming to provide a high-end experience with robust performance at a competitive price​ (BMW BLOG)​.

Furthermore, the Rivian R1S and Cadillac Escalade EV are emerging with electric powertrains, reflecting the industry’s shift toward sustainable luxury vehicles​​.
