•A plug-in hybrid engine that produces the same 320 horsepower and has a 20-mile range on electricity only
•A twin-turbo V8 that cranks out 445 horsepower
•A mind-boggling V12 that roars with 601 horsepower and 590 pound feet of torque
The 7 series also has the option of all-wheel drive on the 740i and 750i. On the 760i flagship, all-wheel drive is standard. The 7 series also provides a series of trim options, all of which have an extended wheelbase:

All versions of the 2017 BMW 7 series are beasts when it comes to acceleration, well-trained mounts when it comes to comfort, and precision instruments when it comes to handling. Even though the longer wheelbase may not be everyone's taste, the extra room and cargo space it provides is a fair trade-off. At the pinnacle of the spectrum, the 12-cylinder streaks to 60 mph in under four seconds and runs the standing quarter mile in fewer than 12.
The 7 series achieves impressive ratings, with the 740i approaching 30 mpg, the 760i topping 20, and the hybrid pushing past 60.
In all, while the 2017 BMW 7 series is not an out-and-out track performer, its flexible ride, unchained under-the-hood power, and sleek, 21st-century styling make it a top performer in every category.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base BMW 7 Series invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All BMW 7 Series Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
