It has three rows of seating, a stunning interior, standard all-wheel drive and is manufactured in America. Oh, and it’s a BMW. The X7 is the largest vehicle BMW makes. It’s ready to haul your clan, as long as you have $75,000 for a base xDrive 40i model. Tom Voelk drove in the lap of luxury from Phoenix, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada with Top Gear Magazine writer Paul Horrell. And they talk politics! But first they have to find the key…

BMW paid for transportation and lodging. Running footage was provided by BMW because, as you will see, I ran out of time.

About Tom:
Tom Voelk is an award-winning automotive contributor to The New York Times. His podcast was the first to win an Emmy Award. He also married way out of his league. Now, stop reading this promotional copy bragging about Tom's photography and editing skills and watch a couple episodes. It's much more interesting.

      Call me crazy...but i think the Kia Telluride is a better looking vehicle. The Kia would probably be more reliable over the long term too

      This is based on an extended x5 chassis? Rather than being based on the 7 series?

      Another nice video, Tom.
      Just a suggestion: For your beauty shots, slap on a ND filter and tighten your DOF. :)

      I might check out a 3 year old CPO for $60K instead of $105K new.

      No way to park this monster here in Europe. Have problems to get my X5 into the car elevator now. Just wait till my landlord hear the size of this monster:”NEIN, herr Weissman! KEIN X7!” “Aber, aber, es ist so schön!“ “NEIN!“

      Good grief, this is a poor review. Focus on the car - not your issues, the Top Gear journalist, etc.

      At 70 you must have a nice nest egg to walk away with an x7. Do you?
