BMW X7 Performance Stats

The entry-level model for the X7 is called the xDrive40i. It draws its power from a turbocharged inline-six engine that creates 335-horsepower. If you select the M50i model, your X7 will have a twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 that creates 523 horsepower. For even power, the Alpina XB7 modifies that twin-turbo engine to instead pump out 612 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission is what BMW chooses for all three engine options. All-wheel drive is also standard on all models.

Fuel economy numbers are quite impressive, especially when considering the size and power of the X7. With its standard engine, the EPA estimates it will give you 24 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg while in the city. For the M50i model, the X7 can give you 21 mpg highway and 15 mpg city.
