Perillo BMW is very excited for the upcoming release of the 2016 BMW 7 Series. Before the new sedan arrives at our Chicago, IL dealership this fall, we are taking an in-depth look at the new features, technologies, and performances standards the 2016 BMW 7 Series has to offer. Here’s a look at some of our favorite new features.
The 2016 BMW 7 Series will be available in two top-performing models; the 740i and the 750i xDrive. Powering the base 740i will be BMW’s 3.0-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, capable of generating 320 horsepower. The updated 2016 750i xDrive will feature a redesigned, twin-scroll-turbocharged V8 engine packing 445 behind the wheel. Both models will work with 8-speed automatic transmissions as well. While fuel economy numbers have yet to be released, we expect great ratings as the 2016 BMW 7 Series shed about 190 pounds. This is due to the use of BMW’s innovative carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic that is used in the BMW i8 and BMW i3 high-efficiency models.
We can’t wait to share with our customers the new and amazing technologies featured in the 2016 BMW 7 Series. The 6th generation flagship sedan has already created quite the buzz just based on technology alone. And upgraded iDrive interface now allows drivers to used finger and hand motions as commands. iDrive 5.0 features a 10-inch touchscreen, allowing people to finger-write notes on the interface as well. Backseat drivers won’t be left out from the fun, either.
Back seat iDrive features a 7-inch Touch Command tablet embedded in the center armrest, allowing passengers to control tilt and recline of the seats, HVAC settings, and entertainment. This center console will also feature a wireless charging pocket for smartphones.
