BMW confirms X7 SUV, production heading to South Carolina

As expected, BMW has confirmed plans to build the X7. The announcement was made at the company's South Carolina plant, which will serve as the exclusive production facility for the all-new SUV.

"I have been asked many times: 'Why don't you offer a BMW X model beyond the BMW X5?' And today, I'm happy to provide the answer to that question," said BMW chairman Dr. Norbert Reithofer. "We have decided to develop and build a totally new X model - the new BMW X7."

The company has yet to announce full details surrounding the new SUV, though separate rumors suggest the German company may be co-developing a large SUV with partner Rolls-Royce.

The all aluminum, technologically advanced All New Aviator and Navigator will have launched and be on it's first refresh by the time BMW has the X7 launch.

Look at Lincoln, ahead of the game.

BMW must be planing for quite a bit of exports from that plant at 450k capacity. They sold less than 73k X3, X5 and X6 units for 2013 in NA, down from just under 80k for 2012.

Navigator - X7
Aviator - X5
MKC - X3

They sell over 50,000 from that plant in China alone now.
