BMW 7 series 2016 Powertrain Offerings
Discover, explore and book a test drive in any 7 Series model. The BMW 7 Series is the Ultimate Driving Machine. Exterior its good in exterior and everything Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) its very luxry and comfort and every features are there, very lenghty Engine. The Alpina B7 has long filled the top of BMW’s sedan goody bag, standing in for the M7 BMW still won’t build, albeit with a more luxury-oriented bent than that still-theoretical model might provide.
High-performance M versions of the 2-series, 3-series, 4-series, 5-series, 6-series, and even the X5 and X6 utes exist, but BMW’s biggest four-door, the 7-series, is left out. For those not familiar with Alpina—something Alpina might consider a win for its exclusivity—it is a tuner that enjoys an exceptionally close relationship with BMW, despite technically being a stand-alone manufacturer that offers hotted-up versions of regular BMW models. When it comes to the B7, Alpina’s formula involves adding dash with a subtle dose of flash. With a new 7-series having arrived for the 2016 model year, Alpina remixed the B7 recipe and applied it to the updated body.
The 740i stands as the entry point into the 7-Series lineup and features a 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline-six engine. Generating 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque, BMW says the 740i can accelerate from 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. The 740i is rated at 21mpg in the city and 29mpg on the highway.
The step-up 750i uses a 4.4L twin-turbocharged V8 rated at 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate from 0-60 in 4.7 seconds. The EPA rates the 750i at 17mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway.
The 750i xDrive uses the same 4.4L V8 as the 750i, but the extra grip of all-wheel drive drops the sedan’s 0-60 time to just 4.3 seconds. The added weight of the all-wheel drive system knocks the 750i xDrive’s city rating down to 16mpg, but highway mileage is unchanged at 25mpg.
The M760i xDrive can accelerate from 0-60 in less than 3.9 seconds thanks to a 6.6L TwinPower V12 that belts out 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy figures have not been announced.
The 740e plug-in uses a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine paired with an electric motor integrated into the car’s eight-speed transmission. The gas engine is rated at 258 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the electric motor kicks in another 113 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Total system output is 326 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
BMW says the 740e can scamper from 0-60 in about 5.6 seconds. More importantly, the 740e can cover up to 25 miles on battery power alone. The 740e is rated at 112mpg on the European cycle, although that figure will be lower when the sedan is put through the EPA’s testing process. The 740e comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive will be available for an extra charge.
