After the first images of the new BMW 7-Series have leaked on the internet, the company has announced details of the vehicle. It is known that BMW will be offering a number of new features for the 2010 BMW 7-Series, including a recently developed twin-turbo diesel engine, the M Sports package, and xDrive system.
The BMW 740d is scheduled to appear in the fall. The vehicle is expected to feature a brand new straight-six diesel engine. The all-aluminum engine will receive the BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology, and will produce a maximum 306 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. The vehicle will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds, with a limited top speed of 250 km/h. The engine uses 6.9 liters of fuel per 100 km.
The second diesel engine is the 730d, which is a 245 hp six cylinder. BMW states that this is the world’s most economical and lowest emission model in the luxury class by a further reduction in both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The vehicle will also be available with BMW BluePerformance Technology.
The innovations of the company also includes all-wheel xDrive system available on the 7er for the 2010 model year. Already available on the 3er, 5er, and X models, xDrive will be mounted to the V8 powered 750i and 750Li. xDrive is an electronically controlled system that will spread out 407 horsepower across each wheel at appropriate points.
