2020 BMW 7-Series facelift can’t be missed because of its huge grille

The 2020 BMW 7-Series is very dramatic with a new, much bolder front end dominated by that Burj Al-Khalifa sized grille and a new I6 plug-in hybrid.


If the G11/G12 BMW 7-Series was just a little too bland for you, BMW has a fix on the way. A new 50mm (2″) taller front end with a big new chrome grille (practically) straight from the X7.

The car also has new bumpers, hood, front fenders with vertical vents, and slimmer 3-Series style taillights.

The 740e/740Le 4-cylinder plug-in hybrid has been axed and replaced by a more powerful 745e/745Le model with an I6 engine.

At launch the engine range is like this:

  • 730d, 730Ld, 730d xDrive: 3L turbo-diesel I6 with 195kW (261hp) and 620Nm (457 lb-ft)
  • 740d xDrive, 730Ld xDrive: 3L twin-turbo-diesel I6 with 235kw (316hp) and 680Nm (502 lb-ft)
  • 740i, 740Li: 3L turbo I6 with 250kW (335hp) and 450Nm (332 lb-ft)
  • 745e, 745Le xDrive: 3L turbo I6 plug-in hybrid with 210kW (282hp) and 450Nm (332 lb-ft)
  • 750i xDrive, 750Li xDrive: 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 with 390kW (523hp) and 750Nm (553 lb-ft)
  • 760Li xDrive: 6.6L twin-turbo V12 with 430kW (577hp) and 850Nm (627 lb-ft)
