Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.
Best Bets get average or better mpg, have average or better reliability, good crash-test ratings, and our experts' recommendations.

Vehicle Overview BMW's flagship 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that competes with top-line sedans like the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The V-8 7 Series comes in regular and extended lengths as the 750i and 750Li, respectively. For 2010, a V-12 engine and all-wheel drive are now available.
New for 2010 The 2010 7 Series adds a range-topping 760Li, available only in the extended-length configuration. Both the 750i and 750Li can now be had with BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive. The 760Li comes only with rear-wheel drive. There's also a new M Sport Package with various cosmetic and suspension enhancements.
Exterior The 7 Series adopts more conservative styling than its predecessor; it's also a bit larger. The optional M Sport Package augments the exterior with more aggressive lower bodywork, 19-inch wheels and darker Shadowline door and window trim.
Exterior features include:
Extended-length versions are 5.5 inches longer
Aluminum roof, doors, hood and front fenders for decreased weight
Optional high-beam assist automatically dims high beams for oncoming drivers
Standard xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
Standard adaptive headlights move with steering wheel
Optional M Sport Package with 19-inch wheels
Optional 20-inch wheels
Interior Up to five occupants fit inside the 7 Series. An array of entertainment and comfort features are available. BMW's iDrive system, which controls the navigation system, stereo, climate control and other functions, was revised last year in an effort to make it more user-friendly.

10.2-inch dashboard screen for iDrive
Four-zone climate control, including independent control for rear passengers
Optional rear Comfort seats have massage and ventilation features
Optional rear entertainment system with dual screens in head restraints

Under the Hood The 750's 4.4-liter V-8 uses two turbochargers to deliver 400 horsepower and 450 pounds-feet of torque; it's borrowed from the BMW X6, where it was initially introduced. The 760's 6.0-liter V-12 also uses two turbochargers. It makes 535 hp and 550 pounds-feet of torque. With the V-8, BMW says its optional xDrive all-wheel drive can send up to 80 percent of power to the rear wheels if needed, keeping acceleration and handling traits similar to those of the rear-wheel-drive 7 Series.
