This year BMW will introduce the newest member of its sedan family, 2017 BMW 7 series G11 (this will be standard wheelbase car; the long wheelbase is designated as G12).
The great looking flagship model will be packed with exciting new features and it?s going to be lighter as well. Let’s see what is planned for…
On the front the new 2017 BMW 7 features more pronounced kidney grille surrounded by sleeker and larger headlights. On the new 7 Series LED lights will be default while the L-shaped laser lights, inspired by the recent BMW concept cars, are optional. Also, the edge of the hood has been moved down to meet with the grilles which gives the car more dynamic look. At the sides, the 2017 BMW 7 series G11’s shape is similar to the current model, but it sports a modified version of BMW?s trademark Hofmeister kink. An added chrome line runs from the back wheel arch and flows into reflector right above the exhaust tip at the back. The tail lamps seem to be smaller in size and more angular. At the back chrome stripe connects the LED taillights and runs through the
tail lamp sets. To round off the vehicle’s back-end design, the twin exhaust pipes are fitted neatly into the new rear bumper and are also finished in chrome.
2017 BMW 7 Interior Innovations
Although the 2017 BMW 7 series G11’s cabin looks familiar there is abundance of new items we can look forward to. Among other things touch-sensitive keyboard for the air-conditioning system, the independent screen for the infotainment system and BMW’s latest digital instrument panel. The iDrive system is positioned next to the automatic gear selector and has similar controller and buttons as the current model. However the screen has a distinct layout with mobile-like icons arranged in a tile pattern which can be selected swiping the screen. In addition there are also WI-FI Hotspot for wireless Internet access, integrated wireless phone charging pad and the latest in-vehicle audio system.
Carbon Fiber and Weight Loss
The most awaited aspect of the BMW 7 series G11 is Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) in various parts of the vehicle such as the hood, roof and trunk lid. This will drastically reduce weight and at the same time improve both performance and fuel economy. Using lighter materials, including a combo of aluminum, high-strength steel and carbon fiber, will help the G11 cast off up to 200kg (440 pounds) compared to the current model. It is considerable change if we take into consideration that both models have almost the same basic outline. To accompany model’s light weight, the engine range will include a wide selection of options spanning from 2.0-liter four cylinder motors (260 HP), six-cylinder turbo motor (330 HP) to eight-cylinder (460 HP) and robust V12 6.6-liter (570-600 HP) engines.
2017 BMW 7’s Release Date
Depending on when the German company decides to introduce it to the fans, at the Geneva Auto Show in March or at the International Motor Show in September, the new BMW 7 series G11 will hit shops in the second half of the 2015 or in the early months of 2016. The price of this car hasn’t been disclosed yet, but we can expect it will be in the range of its predecessor.
