2013 BMW 7-Series Unveiled: Comes With New Styling Tweaks
Four years after its debut, BMW comes with a facelifted version of the current generation BMW 7-Series for the 2013 model year to make sure that it stays competitive with the growing competition in the auto industry. Although from the images, it appears that there are minimal styling tweaks that are included in this new model, we have been told that most of the changes have been done under its skin. The automaker has introduced a range of new fuel-mixing technologies for the 7-Series, including Auto Stop-Start and Brake Energy regeneration, alongside an updated Driving Dynamics Control system featuring new ECO PRO mode.
The power for the new 2013 BMW 7-series comes from a new 3.0-liter tri-turbocharged inline-six diesel engine, which we first saw in the M550d xDrive. The 740i/Li’s base 3.0L TwinPower Turbo straight-six, aka the N55 is perfect for 315 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. It is controlled via ZF 8-Speed automatic. Besides, there is a 750i/Li TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, which is now set with BMW’s famous throttle-less intake and updated Double-VANOS variable cam timing systems. BMW assures a combined fuel consumption of 6.4lt/100km (36.8mpg US or 44.1 mpg UK) in the EU test cycle, with CO2 emissions of 169 g/km.
Moving to its outside, the vehicle features new LED headlamps with corona rings along with modified grille with nine slats. A revised front bumper, new indicators and a thin chrome strip are also included. Inside, the 2013 model has leather front seats, a new 1,200-watt Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System and an optional Rear Seat Entertainment package with a new 9.2-inch monitor. The 2013 BMW 7-Series will hit showrooms later this summer. More details including its pricing will be announced closer to that date.
