All Wheel Drive BMW 7 Series XDrive Debuts This Fall - Web Exclusive

In the continuing development of BMW's flagship 7-Series line, BMW has announced xDrive all-wheel drive versions of the 750i and 750Li. When combined with the previously announced V12-powered 760Li, the 7-Series range grows to five variants for model year 2010.

BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system has been enhanced for these new models to ensure that the 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive set a new benchmark for handling characteristics among all-wheel drive sedans. BMW's Integrated Chassis Management, using the speed of its FlexRay on-board network and the quick-responding xDrive hardware, is able to identify and then limit understeer by shifting torque rearward (up to 80% to the rear axle) while preserving the stability for which xDrive has been so recognized.

As a second step, the Integrated Chassis Management system can then apply a precise combination of throttle and individual rear-corner braking in order to maintain perfectly neutral handling in a corner, regardless of road surface conditions.

For driving enthusiasts, model year 2010 also marks the debut of the M Sport Package for all 7-Series models. The M Sport Package includes an M steering wheel, functional aerodynamic kit, Active Roll Stabilization (RWD only), Shadowline trim, anthracite headliner and 19" wheels. 20" wheels are available at additional cost. Carbon Black Metallic exterior paint is also available with the new M Sport Package.
