Make way for the big boss, the 2023 BMW 7-Series is here, and it’s brought an identical electric twin. The new flagship sedan from BMW comes in two flavors to cater to all buyers regardless of their preference for gasoline or electric. The front end of the 2023 BMW 7 bears the company’s new look we saw in the 2023 X7 SUV. The split headlight design is matched with the almost-normal large kidney grille and a Thanos-sized bumper chin.

North America will be getting three models of the 2023 BMW 7-Series. The entry-level 740i uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder, followed by the 760i xDrive with a new 4.4-liter V8 producing 536-hp and 553 lb.-ft of torque. Side note, BMW stated that it plans on continuing to offer gasoline engines into the 2030s. The entry-level BMW i7 xDrive60 battery pack produces a healthy 563-hp and 549 lb.-ft of torque to move its nearly 6,000-pound curb weight. BMW says the electric 7-Series i7 can deliver an estimated range of 300 miles. Lastly, the top-tier i7 M70 xDrive will feature a 101.7-kWh lithium-ion battery pack claimed to produce over 600-hp and 700 lb.-ft of torque.

The main reason to buy a BMW 7-Series is the interior, and this latest version offers plenty of it. According to the tape measure, the 2023 BMW 7-Series is nearly seven inches longer than the current long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz S-Class. As a result, the rear seats can recline 42.5-degrees for an authentic Lazy Boy armchair experience. The most significant addition to the interior is the optional 31-inch theater screen (a $4,750 option). This digital panorama screen folds down from the roof and offers occupants media entertainment with the aid of a 5G antenna. Moreover, while vegan interior trims are available, buyers can also choose cloth seats and cashmere wool instead of traditional leather upholstery. New drive aids include an updated version of BMW’s Highway Assistant, which allows hands-free driving at speeds up to 80mph, but only on certain highways. U.S. buyers can expect to see the 2023 BMW 7-Series and i7 at dealerships later this year.
