While I understand the functional advantage of the huge kidney grill, I don't find it attractive.

Nice looking interior. The rear looks like a minivan.

It's got a face that even it's mother couldn't love.

Put it in a bag with lots of rocks and throw it in the river.

Ghastly!!

22" wheels. Wow that is huge! Not very 4wd ish. I was hoping for a lot more sidewall so that I can hit curbs and run over some stuff without consequence.

Love the color combo, the arctic gray and blue/white merino leather looks great!

Interior looks phenomenal. I'll hold off on exterior comments until I see one in person.

Ohhh I just noticed the half tailgate! That is great. It will now probably fit in my garage. One of the very reasons we don't have the GLS is that it won't park in the garage with the tailgate open. I bet this will!

This is the first time I've ever looked lustfully at an SUV. I want one, and I want it exactly like the launch car.

stop it...go see it in person. I've seen it in the preview showing 2 months ago. It fits perfectly on the car.

unfortunately, it's almost equal to the size of the GLS. The entire time when I was looking at it and sitting in it, I kept thinking this is just like the GLS in proportions.

I got say, the interior materials are a step up from the last 2 generations of X5s

I think he was referring to not being able to open the GLS's tailgate in the garage, and that he believed he could with the X7 since it's a split tailgate.

Despite how ugly it is on the front, I have to admit they did a great job making the interior look super luxurious. Event the switchgear looks premium.

A rolling couch.

Looks like a Van from the rear.

Honda Odyssey was the first thing that came to mind.

Overall, I like it. However, based on the interior design and ALL the dimensions, it still seems to me to just be a G05 X5 with a bigger 3rd row.

Those running boards seem pretty big.

The car has grown on me. I'd love to have one but the X5 is more than enough for most of what I need. This car will be great for those with a very large family or limo services.

yeah, depends on your needs. Some people can do with a +2 seating for the X5. Others need a true 3 row SUV. IMO, with the 3rd row up, the X7 is still too small compared to American SUVs

But , I drove Cadillac Escalade....which is top end in US, and I was totally disappointed.
So much chip plastic and the the cue system was

Sorry but BMW is light years ahead.
It's not everything about size. Lol
