On the inside, BMW has added a dark splash of color.
It's called the X7 Dark Shadow Edition, and it's a special edition that will be offered for the 2021 model year only.
The X7 Dark Shadow Edition features the Frozen Arctic Grey metallic from BMW Individual, the brand's high-level personalisation program, for the first time ever in any of its SUVs. This will be produced at its Spartanburg plant in South Carolina, United States from next month, and the Dark Shadow Edition specification can be paired will all available engines for the X7, including the 340 PS/450 Nm xDrive40i and the 523 hp/750 Nm xDrive50i. The edition model is available worldwide and can be combined with all engines offered for the BMW X7.
Dark Shadow, then. Not a Lord of the Rings villain, but instead a name that represents the brand-new color being debuted on this X7.
So, in addition to the side-window surrounds, covers of the B- and C-pillar and side-mirror bases, a black-chrome finish has been applied to the frame and the bars of the hefty kidney grille, the "air breathers" and the tailpipe covers. This creates a subtle contrast to the matt shimmering body surfaces, also emphasised by the BMW Individual Roof Rail High Gloss Shadow Line and the sun protection glazing. An electronic M Sport differential and rear-biased xDrive four-wheel drive system can send up to 100% of drive to the rear wheels. The wheels are a 22-inch set finished in, you guessed it, more black. In the centre console area, the unique design is underscored by means of BMW Individual interior trim finishers in Piano Black finish bearing an edition logo.
Interior changes include contrasting blue and black Merino leather upholstery, Night Blue Alcantara headlining and a matching leather instrument panel as standard.
BMW on Friday unveiled the new X7 Dark Shadow Edition.
