2024 BMW 7 Series




Not many cars can claim to go toe to toe with the grand Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but the BMW 7 Series is up for the challenge. After entering its seventh generation last year, it is in a stronger position than ever before to steal the crown. It is presented in a number of configurations, including a twin-turbo V8 model with 536 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque or a hybrid with 483 hp and 479 lb-ft. And for those who want their luxury sedan to be all-electric, there’s the new BMW i7 to consider. Whereas some rivals like the Audi A8 no longer offer a hybridized version, there are some newer options in the segment, too, such as the Genesis G90. However, the 7 Series sits near the top of the class for the flawless way it combines luxury with high performance, especially with its updated infotainment system and optional rear entertainment suite. But is it enough to unseat the S-Class?

2024 BMW 7 Series Changes: What’s The Difference vs The 2023 7 Series?

The new BMW 7 Series sedan range gets a hybrid that will help it better compete with rivals in the USA that offer buyers more variety. The 750e uses the same engine found in the 740i paired with an electric motor, which makes 483 hp and 479 lb-ft – and it has an all-electric range of 35 miles.

Other updates for 2024 include an all-wheel drive system that is now available for the regular 740i, and all models enjoy an updated iDrive 8.5 infotainment operating system that comes with an Intelligent Personal Assistant. Newly available features include extended Parking Assistant Professional with Maneuver Assistant. The starting new price of the 2024 BMW 7 Series is $96,400, up $700 from last year.
