2012 BMW 760Li Sedan Review
The 2012 BMW 7-Series is available in a wide range of models--and in two different sedan body styles. Models designated with an 'L' get five inches of additional wheelbase, most of which goes to additional back-seat legroom.
740i and 740Li models get a 315-horsepower, 3.0L in-line 6-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The all-aluminum engine has twin turbochargers, variable-cam technology and direct injection, which help the engine produce strong torque output at low revs--a full 330 pound-feet from 1,600 rpm. BMW 750i and 750Li models make 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft. When equipped with the available all-wheel drive system (called 750i xDrive)--which helps improve on-the-road traction and stability and normally sends 60 percent of power to the rear wheels--the 7-Series can get to 60 mph in just 5.0 seconds, according to BMW. At the top of the lineup is the flagship 760Li, with a V12 engine making 535 horsepower, running through an 8-speed automatic transmission.
