The BMW X7 might not look much larger than the X5 from the outside, especially in camouflage, but it's inside where you notice the added space.

Anyone taller than 6 feet will likely have some issues, but that's the case with most three-row SUVs.

Fun fact: The optional second-row captain's chairs are actually the front seats of the upcoming 8 Series.

When it launches, the X7 can be equipped with one of two gas engines, a 3.0-liter, single-turbo I6 or a 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8, both of which mate to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Other markets also receive a six-cylinder diesel, but BMW isn't yet sure if that engine will wander stateside.

All-wheel drive is standard on all trims.

A four-corner air suspension is standard on the X7, and Comfort brings an almost Lexus-like plushness to the ride.

Pressing the Sport button injects the X7 with an entirely new character.

In this mode, the X7 really does feel like a completely different vehicle, or at least a smaller one.
