An eight-speed programmed is the sole transmission decision. We presume that a module half and half form will wind up accessible not far off, as well. The two models are appraised to tow up to 7500 pounds when furnished with a discretionary plant hitch.
Versatile dampers and air springs are standard, and the X7 offers an assortment of driving modes that adjust the ride stature and powertrain tuning and, in Sport mode, can even change the all-wheel-drive framework to be more back one-sided. BMW is putting forth various skeleton execution overhauls, including a Dynamic Handling bundle that includes an electronically controlled back differential, raise wheel directing, and updated brakes.
