2018 BMW 7 Series: A Full-Size Sedan with the Soul of a Sports Coupe

The modern luxury sedan tends to suffer from a host of preconceived notions.

"Land yacht."

"Gas hog."

"Slow and lumbering."

These are just a few of the musings you might get when asking consumers what words come to mind when describing a full-size luxury sedan.

Well, consider every previous negative perception about this class of vehicle now obsolete. With the production of the 2018 BMW 7 Series, the luxury automaker has completely changed the DNA of the full-size luxury sedan while retaining all the positive attributes.

Let's start with horsepower and maneuverability. The 2018 7 Series features an ultra-lightweight carbon core that, according to BMW, "creates a lower center of gravity to improve agility." There is also a host of powerful engine options available that ensure the 7 Series can seriously cook on the roads in and around Bedford, VA.

BMW has even released a plug-in hybrid model of the 2018 7 Series known as the 740e xDrive iPerformance.

Gas hog? We think not. Now, about that "slow and lumbering" perception…

You can opt for the M Performance model in the 2018 7 Series lineup which boasts a TwinPower Turbo V12 powertrain that delivers 601 horsepower. We certainly don't want to get into the bad graces of the Virginia State Highway Patrol, but it's a fact that this sucker can flat-out fly.

That's just a taste of what's in store for you when you take a test drive in a 2018 . Now is a great time to visit our Virginia BMW dealership and check out our entire selection of models including the 7 Series.

We work hard to make BMW luxury affordable through a wide variety of special programs and offers. While we make every effort to keep our special offers updated on our website, for complete details we always recommend you visit our luxury auto dealership in person at 2643 Lakeside Drive, Lynchburg, VA 24501.

The Supremely Appointed Interior of the 2018 BMW 7 Series

Let's face it: This is a BMW model, so you know you're going to get a cabin covered from front to back in only the highest-grade materials. Instead of covering the usual appointments, we're going to point out some of the unique touches that elevate the interior of the 2018 7 Series from that of the competition.

The manufacturer keeps the comfort of passengers at an equal level to that of the driver with the Rear Executive Lounge Seating Package in the 2018 7 Series. This is a must-have option if you're looking to turn the 7 Series into the ultimate people-hauling machine. This package includes "functional comfort-based seating, footrests, and plush floor mats," according to BMW, along with dual 10-inch entertainment screens and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The expansive backseat combined with this package truly provides a riding experience that makes even long road trips outside the state a sheer pleasure.

A Look at 2018 BMW Exterior Paint Colors & Options

BMW offers the 2018 7 Series in a wide range of exterior paint color options:

  • Carbon Black Metallic
  • Black Sapphire Metallic
  • Cashmere Silver Metallic
  • Glacier Silver Metallic
  • Imperial Blue Metallic
  • Dark Graphite Metallic
  • Mineral White Metallic

The 7 Series was completely redesigned in 2016. At that time, the automaker removed the standard wheelbase option and made all 7 Series models long wheelbase vehicles. This increased rear interior space especially in terms of legroom.
