740i to North America for 2011?

We are categorizing this as a rumor for the time being as it is unconfirmed. We felt that it was too juicy to push to the side and this information has some merit to it, it is not just someone guessing. We have heard from a reliable source that BMWNA is considering bringing the 740i to the US market this spring as 2011 model. This same source indicates that several other models will be introduced at that time as well. The other launches we were tipped to include the 3 Series coupe and convertible Life Cycle Impulse (facelift) equipped with an 8 Speed transmission in addition to cosmetic upgrades. We as always will keep you up to date as we hear more.

The 2011 BMW 740i and 740Li Sedans
16.12.2009
Press Release
Woodcliff Lake, NJ December 16, 2009 2:00pm Eastern As an exciting example of its EfficientDynamics engineering philosophy, BMW announced the North American debut of the 7 Series with a twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine. Featuring BMWs award-winning inline-6 engine that produces V-8 power on six-cylinder fuel consumption, the new BMW 740i and BMW 740Li achieve a remarkable balance of power, efficiency, and sporty driving dynamics. Both models will go on sale in the United States as 2011 models in Spring 2010. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

In 1977, the original BMW 7 Series was launched exclusively with inline-6 propulsion. The United States first met the BMW 7 Series in the 1978 model year as the 733i Sedan. The 733i featured a 3.2-liter inline-6 engine rated at 197 horsepower. The 733i remained on sale in America until it was replaced in 1985 by the BMW 735i Sedan. The 735i, which featured an updated inline-6 engine producing 218 horsepower from 3.4 liters, enjoyed a production run that lasted through the end of the 1992 model year. The 735i was joined by the extended-wheelbase 735iL in May of 1988.

A keystone of BMWs EfficientDynamics philosophy is virtual displacement, the notion that BMWs modern engines of smaller displacement can equal or exceed the outputs of traditional engines of larger displacement and more cylinders. This principle is already seen in the BMW 750i model, which features a twin-turbocharged V-8 engine performing at the level of BMWs previous-generation V12 engine. Virtual displacement provides the power of a larger engine with the fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions signature of a smaller engine. The 2011 BMW 740i and 740Li feature BMWs internationally acclaimed twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine with up-rated output of 315 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 330 lb-ft of torque from 1600-4500 rpm. All-aluminum construction, High Precision direct fuel injection, Double-VANOS variable camshaft technology, and Brake Energy Regeneration are a few of the technologies used under the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy to place the 740i and 740Li among the most powerful six-cylinder luxury sedans in the world. Delivering power to the rear wheels is BMWs 6-speed automatic transmission, well-known for fast, smooth gearshifts and an ability to intelligently adapt to the drivers style.

Both models will be available with the full complement of well-known 7 Series options and packages, including the M Sport Package, Driver Assistance Package, Luxury Seating Packages, Rear Entertainment Package, and even the BMW Individual Composition Package.

Weird how BMW will be using the current twin turbo inline six instead of the new single turbo inline six from the F10. That engine will already be here by Spring 2010.

Is there any conjecture on how much that would reduce the cost of the 7 series?

I am guessing about $70,000-$72,000 base MSRP for the i, and $74,000-$76,000 for the Li, as that would fit right between the 550GT and the 750Li. Also they need to retain the exclusivity of the 7 Series, so under 70k would be unlikely.

Nope- the N54 is staying. The 740 has an uptuned version hence 40 and not 35, you will see more uptunes of the N54, the N55 is not an immediate replacement.

As for pricing expect low $70's to start and all options will be available as on the 750- I expect a lot of 7ers without badges.

I doubt that since the only way to differentiate the current 7er is via the badge(s). All the F01/02 (from 730d thru 750Li) looks the same based on appearance.

When I get closer to ordering my F10 535, I am going to price a 740. With attractive lease rates on the 740 and the usual high introductory rates on the 535, they might be close enough to justify a modest bump on the monthly payment up to the 740. If I did that I would get a very basic 740 with an upgrade on the wheels. And debadge it. I am sure that given the economic conditions BMW wants to entice some F10 buyers/leasers to move up to the 740 to achieve sales goals for the 7 series.
