BMW’s X7 SUV Gets The M-Series Treatment And 523HP

BMW’s suite of vehicles are all quite stylish, iconic, and worth your cash. But if you’re the type to value performance over all else, you probably gravitate toward their sport-focused M Series. Two more offerings can now be counted amongst the M Series ranks with the release of the 2020 X7 and X5 M50i.

As we’ve come to expect from BMW’s M Series, the X7 and X5 get a wealth of notable upgrades. Most importantly, they’ve both been equipped with a new TwinPower Turbo V8 petrol engine that’s good for 523 horsepower and 553 ft-lbs of torque — giving the M7 a 0-62 time of 4.5 seconds and 4.1 seconds for the M5. That powerplant is also mated to the M Series exhaust, an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission, intelligent all-wheel-drive, and special sport-tuned suspension systems specific to the two SUVs. Along with M Series badging throughout, the SUVs also get some exclusive styling — like Vernasca leather upholstery, Anthracite (X5) and Alcantara Anthracite (X7) headliners, and the X7 also gets a Harmon Kardon sound system. Production for each vehicle is slated for August with prices for the X5 M50i and X7 M50i starting at $82,150 and $99,600 respectively.
