BMW X7 Performance vs. Rivals

What’s luxury without the effortless power to go with it? Discerning Memphis buyers know the value provided by a strong powertrain, which is why even the entry-level BMW X7 xDrive40i comes standard with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that generates 335 horsepower. For power-hungry buyers, there are even more potent twin-turbo V8 models that generate up to 612 horsepower. For context, that’s more available power than either the Mercedes-Benz GLS or Lexus LX can offer. It’s yet another win for the multitalented BMW.

BMW X7 Interior Features vs. Rivals

With a variety of indulgent options on offer in the 2022 X7, buyers can load up on amenities that range from five-zone climate control and massaging front seats to a glass-cut shifter and a panoramic roof. Our favorite feature, though, might be the Harman Kardon® 16-speaker audio system. Optional on the BMW xDrive40i and standard on the M50i, this stereo brings the aural delight of the symphony to you. Don’t expect to find a comparable system on the GLS 450, however. For Mercedes-Benz fans, premium audio is only available on the expensive GLS 63 AMG.
