BMW is immersed in the fine-tuning of the renewal of its largest SUV model yet, the X7. This is how this “giant” will be updated.
At 5.15 meters in length, the BMW X7 is the largest SUV-type vehicle currently marketed by the German manufacturer. This model began to be sold in our country in February 2019 and two years after its commercial premiere, the German firm is already preparing its next renewal, an update that will be ready, in all probability, in mid-2022.
The latest spy images attest that BMW is in the process of tuning the X7 2022, a mid-cycle update of the first generation of this SUV in which the main changes will largely focus on an aesthetic facelift in its bodywork as in some of the elements that make up the interior.
One of the parts that will change the most in the renewal of this great SUV will be its front area, which will acquire the new aesthetic language of the brand with the incorporation of new headlights with new shapes and which will be divided, as some sources have been able to anticipate. unofficial access to which Autopista.es has had. These same sources ensure that the lights for the turn signals and the daytime running lights will be placed above the headlights.
In the rear area of the X7 2022, there will be more subtle changes, with slightly modified bumpers, new headlight clusters, and, in all probability, some tailpipes and a discreetly sized spoiler at the end of the roof also with a slightly changed image.
2022 BMW X7 interior
In updating this large SUV, the interior is also expected to undergo a facelift. Two of the elements of the cabin that will undergo an aesthetic change will be the digital instrument panel behind the wheel and the center console, very much in line with the latest launches of the German brand (with the BMW 4 Series Coupé is the base model of aesthetic inspiration).

Regarding the mechanical range, some sources indicate that it would keep the current engines -the 400 hp M50d diesel and 265 hp xDrive30d- and the 530 hp M50i gasoline and 340 hp xDrive40i. However, the increasingly restrictive anti-pollution regulations require this SUV of more than 5 meters in length to incorporate more efficient versions. Therefore, it would not be ruled out that it could receive a plug-in hybrid variant (similar or identical to the one offered by the 394 CV X5 xDrive45e and that would therefore receive the ZERO environmental label from the DGT) or some gasoline version or diesel accompanied by a 48V mild-hybrid light micro hybridization system.
