The 2011 BMW 7-Series Sedan line includes the widest range ever in its 23 year history, comprising a total of 15 models. Along with the 750i xDrive, the 750Li xDrive, and the 760Li introduced for MY2010, the 7-Series line now includes the first 6-cylinder 7-Series offered in the US since 1992. Finally, the BMW Alpina B7 returns on the new BMW 7-Series platform as four models: Standard and long wheelbase versions as well as in rear wheel drive and xDrive versions. The B7 will again set the benchmark in terms of performance, refinement, technology, luxury and exclusivity.
As an exciting example of its EfficientDynamics engineering philosophy, BMW announced the North American debut of the 7-Series with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. Featuring BMW's award-winning inline-6 engine (N54 HP) that produces V-8 power with six-cylinder fuel efficiency, the new BMW 740i and BMW 740Li achieve a remarkable balance of power, efficiency, and sporty driving dynamics.
The 2011 750i and 750Li are the first 7-Series models ever to be offered with BMW's highly lauded xDrive All-Wheel-Drive system. BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system has been enhanced for these models to ensure that the 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive set a new benchmark for handling characteristics among all-wheel drive sedans. BMW's Integrated Chassis Management is able to identify and limit understeer by shifting torque rearward (up to 80% to the rear axle) while preserving the stability for which xDrive has been so widely recognized.
