BMW is going to officially introduce its new flagship SUV – the 2019 BMW X7 later this year, but now we’re hearing reports that BMW may be working on a high-performance X7 M.

2019 BMW X7 extreme conditions

BMW already offers M versions of the X5 and X6 and soon it will introduce the X3 M, but it looks like it may not stop there as the brand tries to take on other high performance SUVs from Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. BMW Blog is reporting that BMW is currently considering an X7 M, which would likely be powered by the same 4.4L V8 as the X5 M and X6 M.

While the thought of a high-performance three row SUV may seem a little over the top, the BMW X7 M would be the perfect rival to the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63. Although sources have revealed that the X7 M is currently being discussed in Munich, we don’t know when BMW will make the final decision.
