Default 201? BMW X7 (bimmer)

X7 still photos here: http://www.worldcarfans.com/11404247...me/lowphotos#2

Whats funny is that they forgot to tape over the BMW roundels on the wheels.

Details boys, Details. :nono:

That's what I was going to say. Albeit if it is a minivan and priced right it'll sell to soccer mom's for sure.

This is due in 2017 or 2018? It almost looks production ready, unless this is just a mule testing the extended wheelbase? It looks quite far along it's development, so I am confused why the much later release date.

Several people have been saying this is just an X5 in camo. And I'm sort of inclined to believe that. Doesn't look much different from the X5 that I can tell. The length seems like a stretching of the camera lens. Seems waaaay too early to see a 2017/18 model running around.

maybe lengthened X5 for China. hard to tell how long it is with no direct profile shot. having said that, if this is actually an X7, the front lights and grill could be similar to the bmw luxury concept just released. also, not sure how extensive the work at the South Carolina plant needs to be to prepare for the X7 (basic retooling and increased workforce?), not sure why this wouldn't be ready for release prior to 2017.

I know the SC plant well. Lets just say the work involved to expand this plant is massive.

Seems too large for the plans as known.
