Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the BMW X7

Contributing Editor - December 3, 2020
  • 2021 BMW X7s available; 2020s sold out
  • Rebates: $1,000 loyalty/conquest rebate
  • Finance: From 1.9% + APR Credit
  • Lease: From $869 for 36 months

BMW's largest SUV:

The BMW X7 is a carryover model offering three rows of versatility and seating for up to seven passengers. It's BMW's largest SUV and comes priced accordingly.

Dealer inventory is composed of 2021 models only as the last of the 2020s were sold out in October. You can also order one, but keep in mind that the typical lead times from the factory are around two to three months. Expect prices to remain close to MSRP.

BMW’s offers are in place through January 4, 2021. We're not expecting the next update before then, including one to coincide with Christmas and New Year's Day. Look for the next changes in early January.

The examples listed here are for the Western States.

An APR credit:

BMW offers a $2,500 APR credit for customers who finance their 2021 X7 purchase with BMW Financial. The credit is applied against your final costs, saving you money.

If you're a current BMW owner or are coming from a competing brand, you may be eligible for a $1,000 loyalty/competitive owner rebate. This rebate is double what BMW offered as recently as September.

A competitive financing rate:

BMW offers 1.9-percent APR for up to 60 months on the 2021 X7, which is competitive with the other luxury brands.

A weak lease offer:

Lease a 2021 BMW X7 xDrive40i for $869 per month for 36 months with $5,999 due at signing. This offer comes with an allowance of 7,500 miles per year (compared to 10,000 miles on most other BMW models) and equates to an effective cost of $1,036 per month. This is a poor deal.

If you're a current BMW owner or are making the switch from a competing brand, ask the dealer to apply the $1,000 rebate to your lease.

2021 BMW X7 Overview

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor

What's New

The 2021 BMW X7 sees several notable changes. The biggest news is the introduction of the performance-focused Alpina XB7 model. Alpina is an automotive manufacturer that hand builds the X7's V8 engine and sends it to BMW for installation. All completed XB7 models are then shipped to Alpina for finishing touches.

Additionally, the 50i model is no longer, while a new Dark Shadow Edition limited model joins the roster. It gets black exterior trim, black and blue interior trim, and M sport equipment, but only 75 units will be available in the U.S.

The X7 also adds several notable standard features, including Android Auto compatability, satellite radio, remote start, a heated steering, and heated front seats and armrests.

Choosing Your BMW X7

BMW offers the X7 in three trim levels: 40i, M50i, and Alpina XB7. Pricing starts at $75,895 including destination for the 40i and climbs all the way to $142,295 for the Alpina XB7.

Engine Choices

The X7 comes with two engine choices, a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six and a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. The second engine also has a higher performance variant developed by Alpina.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.0L Turbo 6-Cylinder335 hp331 lb-ft21 mpg
4.4L Twin-Turbo V8523 hp553 lb-ft17 mpg
4.4L Twin Turbo V8612 hp590 lb-ft17 mpg

All three engines utilizes an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the X7 comes standard with all-wheel drive.

And if trailering is your thing, the X7 sports a towing capacity ranging from 5,400 to 5,950 pounds. That's not enough as some competitors, but it should do the trick for most customers

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The X7 is BMW's first seven-passenger crossover SUV, and it does so with a flourish. The 2-3-2 configuration is comfortable, but if you can afford to lose a seating position, then opt for the middle-row captain's chairs, an $850 item. Those seats are nearly as comfortable as the front thrones.

As for storage capacity, the standard 11.5 cubic feet is about the smallest we've seen in this segment. You might fit two or three grocery bags side by side, but that's about it. Drop down the third row and the cargo area measures 48.6 cubic feet. Behind the first row, there is nearly 90.4 cubic feet to work with. Yes, your X7 can handle garden center and home improvement retail stops just fine..

Safety Features

BMW equips the X7 with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, adaptive headlights, and front and rear parking sensors.

For $1,700, shoppers can opt for an advanced safety suite in the Driving Assistance Professional Package. It isn't a substitute for hands-on driving, but it does incorporate several semi-autonomous features, including adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

The Parking Assistance Package is $800 adds a surround-view camera system, an automated parking system, and a drive recorder system to take video of the vehicle's surroundings.


BMW nails it in all things connectivity. The 12.3-inch center touchscreen isn't just massive, its interface is also user-friendly. It's also one-half of the identical 12.3-inch digital display in the instrument panel.

Standard fare includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wi-fi, HD radio, satellite radio, wireless charging, and a 10-speaker HiFi audio system. The M50i and Alpina XB7 upgrade to a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system, while the Alpina gets a head-up display.

40i - From $75,895

If you don't look beyond the 40i when considering an X7, who could blame you? The standard model comes well equipped with full LED lighting, roof rails, a hands-free power liftgate, gorgeous 21-inch wheels, and nearly a dozen paint schemes.

Inside, the cabin is bright, spacious, and functional. Imitation leather seats are standard, as are 16-way power front seats, a moonroof, four-zone automatic cliamte control, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and armrests, and remote start.

A pair of packages – Premier ($2,550) and Executive ($3,850) – include such features as a head-up display, gesture control, and rear side window electric shades.

M50i - From $100,795

Spending up to the M50i brings a potent V8 engine to bear. This twin-turbo beast takes about 1.3 seconds off the 0-60 mph time of the 40i, reaching its goal in a flat 4.5 seconds.

Other performance upgrades include bigger brakes, a sport-tuned suspension system, and a sport exhaust. Special wheels, choice leathers, and the requisite M seats and steering wheel are also present.

The M50i also gets leather upholstery, 20-way power front seats, and soft-close automatic doors.

There's always a reason to spend more when shopping for a luxury vehicle, and the M50i has its own set of packages. The $3,450 Dynamic Handling Package brings active steering and ride comfort.

Alpina XB7 - From $142,295

The Alpina XB7 is a fitting substitute for the X7 M. The most noteworthy upgrade is what Alpina did to the engine, fitting it with larger twin-scroll turbos, expanded cooling, and a modified exhaust system with switchable acoustic flaps.

Other noticeable upgrades include a beefy steering wheel with blue and green stitching, a leather dashboard, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, a blue-lighted crystal shift knob, and special badging throughout.

CarsDirect Tip

We'd skip the inline-six and head straight to the 2021 BMW X7 M50i's powerful V8 engine. Yes, you're paying nearly $25,000 more for this model, but the list of upgrades justifies the cost.

That the X7 also serves as the basis for the Rolls-Royce Cullinan shouldn't be lost on shoppers. This is no budget model, but the cost differences between the M50i and Cullinan are substantial and shouldn't be easily dismissed.
