The long-anticipated 2016 BMW 7-Series has already received a big round of applause, setting the new high-standards in terms of driving capabilities and technology. The model was also caught on shots, and recently a video teaser was launched by the German based carmaker.
The teaser video is announcing the grand finale, set off on the 10th of June, ahead the carmaker`s worldwide debut in September, at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. On that day, the model is reportedly unveiled in full details.
But we already know a lot of things about the 2016 BMW 7-Series, as it will bring technology to a whole new level in terms of driving capabilities. I am rushing into this department first, as I think that this is the main section where the model will set the high standards.
The technology involves the autonomous driving system, aimed at the “steering and direction control”, meaning that the driver will be saved by the lane departure and blind spot warning system whenever it is needed, along with the collision prevention system. More than that, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will also come with the self-parking system, which involves a key fob to transmit all the info to the car, via a display panel.
Concerning the drivetrain, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will be standing on the company`s newly 35up modular platform, which makes use of the lightweight materials such as carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, providing thus the model with more agility and performance, as well as more efficient dynamics.
Speaking about performance, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will also bring about the new B58 modular six-cylinder unit, in the shape of 3.0-liter displacements, also seen on the 2016 340i, developing 320 horsepower. A 4.4-liter V8 will also fit under the upcoming 750i version, with a plug-in hybrid to be also unveiled.
