Update - July 5, 2017:

Here is the first video of the X7 testing on the Nurburgring.




Update - April 25, 2017:

It looks like BMW has brought out its full lineup of upcoming models, as its future flagship SUV, the X7, has now also taken its first laps on the Nurburgring.


BMW X7 First Laps on Nurburgring





Update - January 23, 2017:

Have a first live video look at the BMW X7 prototype. Not only does it look tough, but sounds it as well. The X7 is expected to be revealed next year and land at dealers in 2019. The U.S. will get x40i, x40d, and x50i models, while the rest of the world will also get the x30i and x30d (source).




11/20/16:

It's been nearly 3 years since the BMW X7 (G07) was officially announced to be coming, and although mules using other models have been spotted, no actual full body prototype has been spotted until now!

The X7 will be BMW's first true 3-row 7-passenger SUV. BMW has said that it will not just be an extended wheelbase X5 and will have its own identity. As for size, the prototype seen here is clearly much larger than the X5, with a longer rear door and roofline. The large glass moonroof looks to be panoramic and the huge front grille takes on a vertically stretched orientation like that seen recently on the next gen X5 prototype.

As the flagship SUV in BMW's lineup, the X7 will also be offered in an even higher luxury version. "We will make a higher luxury version of it as well. So in the same way as you take a 7 Series and you bring in the Individual bespoke service as with Rolls Royce," said Ian Robertson previously. This ultra luxurious version is expected to debut after the standard X7.

The BMW X7 will be revealed in 2018 and compete directly with the Mercedes GLS Class, Audi Q7 and Range Rover. When it comes to market in 2019, the U.S. will get x40i, x40d, and x50i models, while the rest of the world will also get the x30i and x30d (source).

That roofline has some serious GLS vibes to it.

It looks more like an elevated wagon than an SUV. If they're gonna call it an SUV it should at least be able to perform decently off-road like the Range Rover. Saying "well most owners never take it off-road anyway" is stupid because I don't see Land Rover becoming complacent for such silly reasons. If it's not meant to go off-road just call it a CUV, not an SUV. Just another bloated crossover wagon like the Infiniti JX/QX60, GMC Acadia and the Lincoln MKT. I'm seriously disappointed

Yes, I remember not too long ago when it was first announced by BMW and they claimed it would be very different than just a large X5 and surprise- it's not.

So predictable and sad.

One can only hope they make an X8 or SOMETHING that actually has a personality and not just a gigantic tool box with kidney grills.........

I do not really see much difference compared to the X5....
The size is just identical to the X5..... I do not understand why BMW did not make a really big X7 with more space?
If we consider that the X5 has a length of 193 inches...
The X7 must be at least 205 inches long...
What will be the BMW sales ratio for the customer if two SUVs are almost equal in size?��

Interested to see how this will look once they remove all the camo. As the owner of a GMC Yukon Denali XL this is a direct competitor for this market. GMC did a really nice job with the Yukon for this new generation. We have 4 children so the X7 is on my list for consideration when it's time to replace. I'm hoping this one is a home run for BMW. There is very little to choose from in a full size SUV with true 3 row seating

I'm sure it has the same off-road abilities the other X cars do.
