BMW 7-Series

The current generation BMW 7-Series was only launched a couple of years ago, but with Mercedes tackling their S-Class with modifications improving fuel efficiency, as well as design, BMW had limited time to freshen up the competition. The facelifted BMW 7-Series will find it way to the market in 2013, ready to meet the new S-Class straight on with most of it changes found under the hood.

The modified luxury sedan will benefit from BMW’s current engine lineup, meaning a 350 HP twin-turbocharged engine for the 740i and a 450 HP 4.4-liter V8 petrol engine for the 750i version. As of right now, there’s been no mention of changes for the 760i, but rumors are circulating stating that version will be dropped when the time comes.

Along with the engine modifications, the exterior and the interior will receive a series of updates, including new LED accents, restyled front and back bumpers, and a new spoiler.

The facelift BMW 7-Series will be making its world debut at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show in April, with a North American debut following at the New York Auto Show.
