What is the 7 Series?
The 7 Series is BMW's largest and most luxurious sedan, but until very recently, its interior design wasn't that much different from what you'd find in more affordable BMW vehicles. That unequivocally changed last year when the 7 Series received a full redesign that brought with it a game-changing cabin. From the backlit, multi-color dashboard to door-mounted touchscreens and a full-width rear entertainment display, the new 7 Series is a tech lover's dream, a wonder to behold and relaxing to cruise in. Buttery, rich leather and eye-catching aluminum trim detailing and glass controls mean it delivers the classic luxury touches too.
New powertrains are offered for 2024, starting with the entry-level 740i model gaining an all-wheel-drive (or xDrive, in BMW speak) variant. There's also the new 750e xDrive, which pairs a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with a plug-in hybrid system. The engine and motor combine to produce 483 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, and BMW says the 750e can provide up to 35 miles of range on EV power alone with a fully charged battery. These powertrains join the existing rear-wheel-drive 740i and V8-driven 760i xDrive models, as well as the BMW i7, which is the all-electric 7 Series.
2024 BMW 7 Series vehicles produced after July 2023 will also receive BMW's iDrive 8.5 operating system.
