If a couple of years, a possible BMW X7 flagship was just a dream put on paper, today we have the chance of seeing it gradually become a reality. The model was recently seen in new tests out in the snow.
Slated to arrive in 2018, the carmaker`s top SUV might be officially unveiled at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, this November, or prior to its debut, at the 2018 NAIAS, in Detroit. But until then, BMW is keeping the model under heavy camouflage, which indicates that there is still much work to be done.
The model is going to be huge, definetely the hugest project that BMW has ever created, and that because of the increasing demand of bigger and bigger SUVs.
As we can depict from the spy photos below, the test mule is wearing heavy camouflage, meaning that it will come with a new daring approach in terms of styling. The camouflage conceals the extra body panels, the front fenders, as well as the front and rear doors, indicating significant changes that will make it extremely evolutionary in design. Also, the big kidney grille with the center hood reveal an aggressive attitude as well.
However, there are body parts that are not camouflaged, like the roof, which depicts the car`s silver rails or the huge panoramic glass, while at the rear, the prominent exhaust tips is a clear indication of the SUV`s impressive engine portfolio.
As the all-new BMW 6-Series Coupe and Convertible or the upcoming 5-Series Gran Turismo, the BMW X7 will also stand on the company`s new CLAR architecture, meaning increase space inside for passengers and cargo, adding as well a wide range of engines.
