By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Modern design looks cool
Awesome off-road capabilities
Lots of personalisation options

Cons

Land Rover's poor reliability record

Land Rover is introducing a V-8 engine into the Defender lineup for 2022: the 518-hp Supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that's found in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. The V-8 will be available on both the two-door 90 and four-door 110 models; a high-end Carpathian Edition model will also sport the V-8 engine.

Pros
Ultra-capable off-road,
surprisingly refined on-road,
well-equipped interior.

Cons
Disappointing fuel economy,
desirable features carry high price tags,
six-cylinder isn't as quick as we'd hoped.

The 2020 BMW X7 is the upper-crust seven-seat SUV that finally answers the question: What if I want to spend more for a BMW?

Pros
Beautiful interior
Great standard tech
Comfortable seats everywhere
Opulent top trims
No bad engine choices

Cons
Very expensive
Digital dash isn’t our favorite
Look-at-me grille
Many spend-up options

The 2020 BMW X7's #5 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Large SUVs category. Currently the BMW X7 has a score of 7.8 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 11 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-end cabin materials
Many standard tech and safety features
Muscular engine options
Comfortable ride

Cons
Steering feels too light

By: 
usnews.com

The most significant update to the 2020 X7 lineup is the new M50i model, which brings a more powerful version of BMW's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 and other unique content. Otherwise the model-year changes are pretty minor. The top two trims feature more standard features such as soft-close doors, gesture controls, remote engine start, and more. In addition to some revised option packages, the X7 can now be equipped with five-zone climate control. With the introduction of the M50i, the regular 50i no longer offers the M Sport package.

Pros
Smooth and robust powertrains,
marvelously quiet cabin,
seats are serenely comfy.

Cons
Leans too much in corners,
some rivals are roomier inside,
painfully slow power rear seats.
