2017 BMW 7 Series Release Date, News and Specs – The new BMW 7 Series for 2017 aims to re-establish itself through some rafts of updates and new add-ons including but not limited to a standard adaptive air suspension system that aides control and comfort, impeccably refined engines, a standard long-wheelbase model that now offers plenty of backseat space, and a feature and tech galore. Rumors have it that the vehicle’s release date is set for next year’s July.
BMW was just improving an already successful car that offered lots of convenience and entertainment features some of which are some of the best in its class. However, some of its rivals have been catching up and have now matched those features or come in a competitive price than the 7 Series sedan.
To keep up with the onslaught, the BMW 7 Series for 2017 has been reinvented and comes with new features and upgrades such as improved backseat space, camera-based predictive program and an upgraded suspension system.
Interior wise, while the previous vehicle had a conservative look, the new one comes with plenty of latest technology. Of course, the dashboard comes with the usual BMW touch but some additional styling tidbits have been added including an illuminating light during both ingress and egress. Once inside, a calming LED light welcomes you.
One thing that the 7 Series seems to perennially suffer from is the lack of a powertrain option. Otherwise, everything else is laudable and we highly recommend it for anyone shopping in its segment. Some of its bogeys include the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2017 Porsche Panamera, and 2017 Jaguar XJ. Also, the Audi A8 for 2017 is equally competitive as the rest.
