The 2021 BMW X7 is the brand’s premiere SUV. Its sporty and iconic appearance, supreme comfort and incredible power make it desired by many. But how does it compare to the 2021 Ford Expedition, one of America’s most popular SUVs due to its spacious interior, advanced tech and potent performance?

It comes in four trim levels, which are Platinum, King Ranch, XLT and Limited. The exterior is mostly boxy with few curves, and the grille in front is banded by chrome with a centralized blue oval. It sits on eighteen inch wheels and the doors are large and thick, and passengers within the cabin will presented with controls that are chunky, wooden trim and cloth covered seats that can be upgraded to leather.

The BMW X7 offers three row seating and the cabin is covered in a perfect mixture of metallic and wooden trim with dark supple leather. It has an extended nose and the hood has been widened with a kidney grille that is ribbed. Standardized rails can be seen on the roof and the rocker panels come in black or chrome. The twenty one inch wheels are very pleasing to the eyes.

Luxuries within its cabin include twelve inch touch displays, seats which are powered, heated and capable of giving massages, panoramic sunroof and climate control.
