BMW’s new $171,900 before on-road costs M50i will sit atop the X7 large seven-seat SUV range along the identically priced, diesel-powered M50d.
With a detuned version of the 4.4-litre twin-turbo petrol V8 found in the M5 Competition under the bonnet of the new X7, the M50i outputs 390kW of power and 750Nm of torque for a zero-to-100km/h sprint in just 4.7 seconds.
Compared with its M50d sibling, the M50i produces 96kW more power, but 10Nm less torque.
Standard equipment in the X7 M50i includes 22-inch lightweight wheels, M Performance exhaust, M Sport differential, adaptive air suspension, rear-wheel steering set-up, metallic paint, soft-close doors, heated cup holders, five-zone climate control, sunroof and heated front seats.
A new factory-fitted towing package can also be optioned across the X7 range, costing $2500 and able to two 3500kg.
The M50i joins the existing $124,900 xDrive30d and $171,900 M50d as the third variant in the BMW X7 line-up.
