BMW’s 7 Series family sedan will come to North America with five newly designed models in 2013.
The luxury BMW’s 7 Series family sedans (the 740 Li xDrive variant is new for 2013) all receive revised exterior, new generation of the onboard user-control interface, iDrive. iDrive still run through of the knob in the center console — but it much more user friendly then the previous.
Mainstay models 750i and 750 Li (both with xDrive all-wheel drive system) will bring an updated, enhanced power train with BMW’s latest 4.4-litre eight cylinder engine. The same engine installed the BMW latest, 6 Series Gran Coupe.

The TwinPower turbo V8 produce the same numbers in the 7 Series, with 445 hp and 480 Ib.-ft. of torque.
However I believe the top of the line engine 6.0L twin turbo V12. It is already in the 760 Li and it will keep this engine.
The New Hybrid
The hybrid model, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7, claims improved fuel economy over the previous generation. The hybrid’s V8 engine replaced with an in-line six cylinder turbo with a 55-hp electric motor attached to it. The electric motor powered with lithium ion batteries.
This hybrid produce much lowered emissions, while keeps up the performance. According to BMW’s published driving test, the hybrid’s acceleration time of 4.8 seconds from 0-100 km/h. I think it is very impressive from a full size hybrid family sedan.
All new BMW 7 Series comes with a new start stop technology built in. It shuts the engine off at idle, further reducing fuel consumption, and lowering senseless emissions when the car is sitting still. How it will work on the long term…. I guess time will tell.
All new BMW 7 Series will also use BMW”s eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.
For music lovers and for car owners who want to spend some extra money on their new car, 16 speaker surround sound stereo system upgrade available from Bang & Olufsen. This surround sound system was designed specifically for the new BMW 7 Series’ passenger cabin.
A lot of BMW lovers and owners asked the question, will be this BMW 7 Series available with diesel engine?
The answer is yes… According to a report in Car and Driver, the refreshed 2013 BMW 7 Series will be offered with diesel power here in North America from 2013. It will powered by the same 3.0-liter turbo-diesel in-line six engine, that BMW use in other models.
