BMW has unveiled a refreshed range of flagship luxury sedans: the 2020 7 series

Front and center is the return of the German automaker’s iconic kidney grille—now 40 percent larger than before. A sleeker hood, hidden intakes, and integrated tail pipes surrounded in chrome are just a few more redesigned components of the body.

A variety of different powertrains are available. The top dog is 760i’s bellowing 6.6-liter V12, good for 585 horsepower. As Car and Driver notes, the 523-hp 750i gets the new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 from the sporty 8-series convertible. Both the 760i and 750i are now all-wheel drive.

The base model is the rear-wheel drive 740i, which is powered by a turbocharged straight-six that produces 320 hp. 

Brand-new to the line up is the 745e plug-in hybrid. Car and Driver has further details: 

The 7-series swaps its turbo-four gas engine for a turbo six, which begets a combined 389 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque, up 67 hp and 73 lb-ft from the 740e.

That power is still routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. A new 12.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack will presumably increase electric-only driving range, although BMW isn’t releasing official numbers yet.

On the tech front, all models have active steering, adaptive suspension and Extended Traffic Jam Assistant, which allows for hands-free driving at speeds up to 37 mph.

As expected, all models have very upscale interiors. Available options include exclusive Nappa leather with extended quilting and high-gloss American oak trim while a leather steering wheel and wireless charging tray for smartphones comes standard. Also included is a new voice assistant for the infotainment system and the latest version of iDrive software. 

BMW

Car and Driver estimates a price range of around $85,000 for the 740i up to around $160,000 for the 760i.
