2012 BMW 7-Series
2012 BMW 7-Series
Luxury and agility meet in the BMW 7-series, a magic-carpet cruiser that also manages to be an extraordinarily capable performance car. Quibbles with the 7-series are few: achieving a smooth takeoff from a stop can be difficult owing to the 7's electronic throttle mapping and the boost characteristics of its turbocharged engines; and operating the car's many controls can be daunting, despite (or because of) all the operations bundled into the iDrive controller. What's more daunting, however, is choosing from the fifteen iterations of BMW's grandest sedan. There are five engines: a six, two V-8s, a V-8 hybrid, and a V-12. All but two of the engines can be had with all-wheel drive in addition to rear-wheel drive. There's also the choice between the slightly more maneuverable standard-wheelbase car and the L version, whose 5.5-inch stretch is converted directly into additional rear-seat legroom. To make it a bit easier, we'll call out two of our favorites. The 740i (a relative bargain at $71,875) has a turbocharged six that gets the best gas mileage of the 7s yet can still whisk this car to 60 mph in as little as 5.8 seconds. There's no M version of the 7-series, but the Alpina B7 is the sportiest model. It has a lower ride height, a firmer suspension (but, like all 7s, with three selectable settings), and twenty-one-inch wheels. Conversely, our least favorite is the ActiveHybrid 7, which combines a 4.4-liter V-8 with an electric motor. It can't match the EPA ratings of the 740i, and yet the hybrid costs some $9000 more than the regular V-8 7-series.
2013 BMW 7 Series Exterior Short And Long Wheelbase
BMW gave the 7 Series a few nips and tucks and some new tech for 2013, and now has bestowed its new flagship with a revised price tag. The 2013 BMW 7 Series will start at $74,195 for a 740i and rocket up to the $140,200 760Li, including destination. For 2013, the 7 Series will continue on using the same powertrain options as in 2012. Buyers can choose between five turbocharged powerplants: a 315-hp inline-six (740i), a 445-hp V-8 (750i), a 349-hp I-6 paired with an electric motor (ActiveHybrid 7 L), a 540-hp V-8 (Alpina B7), and a 535-hp V-12 (760Li). Pricing for the 2013 740i begins at $74,195 – an increase of $2300 over this year's model – and the long-wheelbase 740Li rises $1800 to $78,195. New for 2013 is the 740LI xDrive (all-wheel drive, long-wheelbase, I-6) that will retail starting at $81,195. The V-8 powered 750i range has been priced at $87,195; add $3000 to that figure for xDrive, $3700 for the long-wheelbase 750Li, and $6700 for an Li with xDrive. By our computations, that's an increase of $2000 for 750i models and $1800 for 750Li models. We've previously covered pricing for the 2013 Alpina B7, which will start at $128,495. The range-topping 760Li will cost affluent buyers a cool $140,200 before options, up $2005 from 2012. The hybrid 7 Series is the only variant in the range to see a decrease in its pricing for 2013: now only available in long-wheelbase form, it will cost $84,895, down a whopping $17,000 from the current model. This ActiveHybrid 7 foregoes the 4.4-liter V-8 and electric motor in favor of the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6 and electric motor setup also found in the 2013 ActiveHybrid 5 and 3. Along with minor interior and exterior cosmetic upgrades, the 2013 model year brings a raft of new technology to the BMW 7 Series. All 7ers now include auto start-stop, brake energy regeneration, and an ECO PRO transmission mode to help reduce fuel consumption. 750i/750Li models have ditched the six-speed automatic in exchange for the brand's new ZF-sourced eight-speed unit. Rear air suspension is now standard across the board (previously available only on LWB cars) and all but the 760Li offer optional LED headlights (the 760Li has them as standard equipment). There is also a new, full-digital dashboard with customizable gauges. Save the ActiveHybrid 7, the 2013 7 Series will be available in dealerships later this summer; the hybrid will arrive this fall. All prices listed include the $895 destination fee. Source: BMW
2015 BMW 7 Series Front Three Quarter
BMW has long maintained that there will never, ever be an M7. The 7 Series’ mission of providing ultimate comfort, the reasoning goes, is inherently incompatible with the racing roots of the M division. The Bavarians have held fast to this self-imposed prohibition even as the magic M has found its way onto the decklids of hardtop convertibles and large crossovers. Potentially with the currently generation, but more likely with the next 7 Series, due in late 2015, BMW may finally break that taboo. Sort of.
2013 Alpina B7 Front View 2
When we last checked in on the world of high-performance BMW executive sedans, the company was reportedly thinking about making an M7 sedan, which would probably supplant the current Alpina B7. While we don't know about the fate of the M7, we do know that the German automaker just updated the Alpina B7.
2013 BMW 7 Series Exterior Rear Quarter Brown
Though the BMW 7 Series has been refreshed for model-year 2013, most of the changes can’t be seen from the outside. BMW’s flagship sedan will arrive with upgraded drivetrains, new standard technology, and a range of new available options in 2013.
