BMW 7 Series

BMW 7 Series

About BMW 7 Series

The time and effort taken by BMW in making over its flagship 7 Series, the first major redesign in seven years, are apparent in the attention to detail, improvements in ride and handling, and above all, groundbreaking technology in infotainment and driver assists. BMW will again be bringing only its long-wheelbase models to America, offering two turbocharged engines, an inline-6 and a V8, the former for the rear-drive 740i, the latter for the all-wheel-drive 750i xDrive. For now, the 2016 BMW 7 Series will not have a V12 option; the 2015 model will have to suffice. Also, BMW has dropped the 6-cylinder turbodiesel and Active Hybrid in favor of adding a fuel-sipping plug-in hybrid later.

What's new for 2016?
2016 BMW 7 Series

This is a new 7 Series inside and out, with an all-new high-strength-steel, aluminum and carbon-fiber structure that reduces weight even as the car grows in overall length and adds features and technology. The revamped suspension on the 2016 7 Series incorporates air springs and active rear steering.

2015 BMW 7 Series

2015 BMW 7 Series

The biggest news for the BMW 7 Series this year is under the hood, in the form of a new 6-cylinder diesel engine. This turbocharged 6-cylinder offers up fuel economy that's superior to the ActiveHybrid 7 model, and it can accelerate to 60 mph in just over six seconds.

2014 BMW 7 Series

2014 BMW 7 Series

Changes for the 2014 BMW 7 Series include the addition of a configurable digital instrument cluster (except on hybrid and Alpina models) and an enhanced navigation/iDrive system with a new touchpad controller. The power trunklid gets a motorized open/close feature activated by running one’s foot under the rear bumper, and 750 trims can be fitted with the smaller (and less easy to damage) 18-inch wheels at no extra cost.

"Been loyal BMW owner and have always found it to be impossible to speak to a BMW corp person when dealer had difficulty solving the problem. For the first time I needed to use BMW Assist. Very bad experience and stuck without help for 6+ hours. Found BMW Assist does exist but it is actually All State Assist. Dealers tell me they did not know this fact. BMW Assist said I would be reimbursed certain expenses. When denied there is no place to go. So I traded the vehicle for another brand. I was fooled by BMW for many years. If you never have a problem with a BMW you will probably be OK, but if you do it is a very undesirable experience."

Pros: "Technologically whiz/bang impressive"

Cons: "Wind noise, comfort over performance"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"I have owned 7 BMWs before this one, four 5 series (1997,2006, and two 2010s), a 2005 six series, a 2015 X4 and a 2015 7 series. The eighth one is a true disappointment. BMW always prided itself as the "ultimate driving machine". That is what kept me coming back. With this model they have sacrificed driving performance for comfort. The car is not tight on the highway or in the streets. The sport mode helps, but it is like the comfort mode on the older BMWs. In addition to the foregoing, this BMW model has a very annoying wind rush noise at high speeds. Apparently either the seals are not as good as in previous models or the windows are not as acoustically sound. All in all a very disappointing result for a $90k flagship of a very proud line."
