2011 BMW 750 Overview
If V-8 power is what you require from your luxury sedan, then look no further than the 2011 BMW 750i.
The 2011 BMW 750i is smack in the middle of the renowned 7 Series family of luxury sedans between the 740i and its V-6, and the 760Li and its V-12. The 750i is available in four trims and has two hybrid brothers. Trims include: 750i, 750i xDrive (all-wheel drive), 750Li (extended wheel base) and 750Li xDrive. Each features a 400-horsepower, TwinPower 4.4-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual shift modes. EPA estimated fuel economy ratings for both regular and long wheelbase models check in at 14-15 mpg in the city and 20-22 mpg on the highway.
The BMW 750i stacks up against the flagship sedans from the other luxury car makers, like the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Styling on this latest version of the 750i is more conservative than previous versions. Opting for an extended wheel base version of the 750i nets you 5.5 extra inches of length. The roof, doors, hood, and front fenders are all made of aluminum to save weight which improves performance and fuel economy. The 750i comes on standard 18-inch alloy wheels, while 19- or 20-inch wheels are optional. Standard exterior features include xenon adaptive headlights that turn in the direction you steer, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power heated side-view mirrors, and fog lights. An M Sport Package is available which adds aggressive bodywork pieces, larger wheels, and darker door and window trim.
The interior of the 2011 BMW 750i is the epitome of luxury, with leather upholstery and 20-way powered and heated front seats. Standard features like a power sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth® connectivity, and four-zone automatic climate control add to the 750i’s luxury chops. The 750i also features the latest in car technology, like a navigation system with voice activation, HD radio, and BMW’s iDrive system, which helps control audio, climate, and communication functions with ease. Optional features include comfort seats with massage and ventilation features, a rear entertainment system with dual screens embedded in the head restraints, head-up display, and night vision with pedestrian detection.
Safety is a priority for the 2011 750i, with standard safety features including a driver and passenger front airbag restraint system with dual-stage deployment, first-and second-row side curtain airbags, front-seat side-impact airbags, knee airbags, and an electronic stability system. Optional safety tech like a lane departure warning system and a blind-spot detection system that warns you when another vehicle is in your blind spot is available as well.
Power, handling, comfort, safety. and new age technology are front and center in the sleek and luxurious 2011 BMW 750i.
