The most noticeable design change on the 2020 BMW 7 Series is a new grille that's 40 percent larger than it was previously.

Skinnier taillights are now connected by a light strip to give the 7 Series more visual depth.

BMW says that the more in-your-face styling is because customers in the US and China -- the two biggest 7 Series markets -- asked for it.

In the 750i models, the V8 engine has been updated to produce 523 horses and 553 pound-feet of torque. That's good for an increase of 80 horses and 74 pound-feet over the previous eight-cylinder.

Bolting to the engine is an updated eight-speed automatic transmission built by ZF. As expected, it performs quick and well-timed shifts.
