2013 BMW 7-Series

The new 2013 7 Series arrives in U.S. showrooms in late summer 2012, except for the ActiveHybrid 7 which goes on sale in early fall.

In the States, prices range from $74,195 for the regular-wheelbase 740i to $140,200 for the long-wheelbase 760Li, including an $895 destination and handling fee.

The BMW flagship sedan model boasts a thinly revised fascia with available LED headlights, while the interior is enhanced with a redesigned iDrive system, and the availability of an optional Bang & Olufsen High-End Surround Sound system and a customizable digital instrument display.

Under the sheetmetal, an 8-speed automatic transmission becomes standard on all models while BMW engineers also uprated the suspension.

For 2013, gasoline engine choices include the 760i with the same 537hp (544PS) 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12 as before, the 750i with a tweaked 4.4-liter turbo V8 producing 444hp (450PS / +10%) and 650Nm (479 lb-ft / +8.5%), and the 740i featuring the new N55 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six delivering 315hp (320PS) and 450Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

There’s also the new ActiveHybrid7, in which the outgoing model’s 408HP 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 (465hp with the electric motor) has been replaced by the 740i’s 315hp (320PS) 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six that works together with a 54hp/40kW electric motor. The system’s combined output is 349hp (354PS) with a peak torque of 500Nm (369 lb-ft).

Last but not least, the Alpina-branded B7 models that are sold in the States through BMW stores benefit from a revised 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine with direct-injection chruning out 540-horses and 538 lb-ft, coupled to a new 8-speed automatic.
