BMW X7 has always been a newsmaker. Since its initial media leak and ostensible demise when the brand allegedly didn’t feel the need for a large SUV back in 2008, the X7 has been playing hide and seek quite well. 2011’s modestly improving economy and America’s relentless appetite for crossovers possible rekindles the project again. Once more there were all sorts of rumors and guesses regarding a possible coming of 2014 BMW X7. While some sources claimed that there is going to be the production of this full sized crossover others deny the new and said that all such plans are long gone. Well, for now, the big BMW X7 is right on its way back again all credits to the Chinese orders.
Said to bear the codename F17, the X7 would, in point of fact, be a long wheelbase version of the very platform that makes the basis of the X6 and X5. The question or rather a problem that arises is that the X5 and X6 already get poor enough fuel economy. As a matter of fact, this, appropriately, was the reason that X7 was dropped back in 2008. Instead the firm decided to spend its development time on the tinier X1 and X3 and its roll-out of diesels in the U.S. The change in the directions of the wind, however, for the large SUV is seen as a result of China pushing the issue.
Along with the X6 platform which is a long wheelbase, the F17 or 2014 BXW X7 is anticipated to take some of its features from the soon coming Audi Q9 and even maybe from the Mercedes GL new generation. Amongst new add-ons, a third row of seats, already detected, is a strong hint or rather a confirmation for more space, enough for 7 passengers.
The release date for the large crossover is a funny thing to predict since BMW X7 has a strong history of jumping out of nowhere and hiding again. Right now the firm is engaged in its project that includes bigger sedan exclusively for Chinese market, but surely that is not really enough to ramp up production of the efficient filling of incoming orders from China. Meanwhile, the brand is also paying attention to comply with sufficient level of supply for Germany and USA. America is considered as a way to rebound with a higher pace than wonderers might expect, by the company’s management, which in turn would result in a lowered need of rebalancing the process whose current rate was defined in the Seoul by some leaders gathered for a meeting. Another potentially shocking proposal was made at the meeting about the cancellation of production of the large new SUV for the American market.
While the 2014 BMW X7 is almost coming back triumphant and has a high chance of getting into production and released to the folks, chances of which are seen in the year 2018, one question still remains. It is yet not know which market the 2014 BMW X7 is meant for. USA or China?
There has been a wide range of sizes available in crossover SUVs but only a few automakers have actually presented the market with absolutely small utility vehicles aimed at consumers who drive in crowded cities. 2014 Buick Encore is one such subcompact crossover. What makes it different from rest of the alleged compact crossovers is the amount of luxury it packs in its small size. The only small SUV viewed as a premium entry in the niche, 2014 Buick Encore marks enough presence with its downsized stout structure to justify its price tag which is anticipated to reach more than $30,000 with a heavy hand on the option list.
The uniquely designed little SUV makes it hard to figure out what it competes with. While the MINI Countryman and Fiat 500L are smaller and quirkier, they stand with completely different designs than that of the Encore. As far as the traditional luxury brands are concerned the only automaker offering an all wheel drive crossover closest to the Encore in size is BMW. And as the BMW X1 shoppers go, it’s hard to say if they even know where their local Buick-GMC dealer is located. For those who seek tall wagons that aim for good gas mileage in a practical, city-friendly size, the Buick Encore stands alone and proud in its more traditional approach to luxury. Consumers who look for small but plush crossovers that is a fine mix of elements of a hatchback and a crossover, and offer an all wheel drive may end up with 2014 Buick Encore with a few other options. While the sales nowhere match the enraging sales of Buick’s mainstay larger Enclave crossover and the LaCrosse sedan, the tiny Encore reaches out to a younger audience and is potentially pioneering a whole new market segment.
The structure of the 2014 Buick Encore attempts to convey a tough and strong look to disguise its box like shape. With a steeply raked front end, the little luxury rides on huge 18 inch wheels. Accommodations impress certain dimensions while appear to be tighter in others. The flexible interior configuration is a plus point. 2014 Buick Encore comes is just one engine and transmission combination currently. A turbocharged 1.4 liter four-cylinder engine from the Chevy Sonic mated to a six speed automatic transmission. Verging on a whopping 3,200 pounds, Encore carries a lot of mass to move with just 138 ponies. If the option all wheel drive is removed and hence the added weight, the little crossover takes about 9 seconds to reach 60 mph from rest and if you need the extra weight to drive all the wheels you’ll need 10 seconds. Handling is as fine as you may get in any tall, heavy wagon with a short wheel base. The all wheel drive models roll more smoothly than the front wheel drive ones.
With its safety features and equipments, the 2014 Bick Encore and its price tag make complete sense. This is one premium luxury crossover that is not at all large, though a bit hefty, but the little SUV makes up for it by being drivable on crowded city roads!
