We know the BMW X7 is coming on October, and its public debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. But we were still not too sure what it looks like 0061, new teaser from BMW helps clear some of that looks.

BMW posted a teaser for the new X7 three-row SUV on its US Facebook page. The teaser contains a pretty good look at the X7’s front end. If you are familiar with the 2019 X5 or any other new BMW, you’ll find almost of familiar design staples, like massive “kidney” grilles and thin headlights.

The look is almost similar to leaked patent rendering that surfaced in early August. The rendering came from Brazil’s national patent office, and shows a design almost similar to the new X5. Albeit with more junk in the trunk to provide the X7’s full third row.

The BMW X7 will offer the similar engine and gearbox combo. But it will sit at the lower end of the big SUV’s lineup. A 4.4-liter V8 with 456 hp will also be available, along with a twin-turbocharged version of the same engine making 522 hp. The X7 is likely to offer at least two diesel versions and a plug-in hybrid option.

Thankfully, we don’t have much longer to wait. The Drive reports that BMW will reveal the X7 sometime in October, and BMW confirmed it. Although neither offered up a specific date, to debut as “mid-October.” Considering we are in the middle of October right now, it shouldn’t be much longer before this thing breaks cover once and for all.

Price and release date

The prices are expected around £70,000. In UK the X7 above the Land Rover Discovery and puts it equal to the Mercedes-Benz GLS, says Auto Express.

The luxury SUV is late to arrive in the UK in February, according to Autocar. Orders are expected to open shortly after the car’s first public appearance at the end of the week.
