When BMW joined the SUV market with the X5 back in 1999, little did we know that the German manufacturer will become such an important player in this segment. But in 15 years, the Bavarian brand has launched no fewer than four different crossovers,with the latest model, the X4, having joined the lineup in 2014. As of 2016, it is known that BMW is planning to develop at least two more haulers. While the X2 is just a concept as of this writing, and the company has yet to confirm it, the X7 is already official and well underway.
The Bavarian brand made the announcement in 2014, when it revealed that the X7 will be built at its plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, which also produces the X3, X5, X5 M, X6, and X6 Mmodels. Although production was initially planned to start in 2016, it appears that the X7 will hit the assembly line later, most likely in 2017. This is also confirmed by the fact that our latest spy shots,which we received in December 2016, show a heavily camouflaged vehicle. This doesn’t mean that it’s far from being ready, but chances are production hasn’t started yet.
