Crossovers are king, even at a driver-focused automaker like BMW.

Proof that even The Ultimate Driving Machine brand has not been immune to the clarion call for more crossovers is the size of its sole U.S. factory, located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. 'It’s the biggest plant that we have in our universe,' said Ludwig Willisch, head of BMW Americas. This facility is home to hot-selling utility models including the X3, X4, X5 and X6.

Following this alpha-numeric progression, the brand’s upcoming X7 three-row crossover will also be screwed together down in Dixie, though it’s not slated to arrive for quite some time.

'The X7, built in the U.S., is still out until early 2019. So, it’s not around the corner,' explained Willisch during an interview with AutoGuide.com.

Despite its generous proportions, Willisch assured us this future product will still provide an engaging on-road experience. He said it will be the BMW among larger SUVs and 'it will also make its laps on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.'
