Tug of war: BMW iX vs BMW X7 vs Mercedes G63

April 28, 2022 by

What sort of pulling power can you get from an electric SUV? Today we’re going to answer that question in the most carwow way possible, with a tug of war. 

Mat’s going to start off today in the BMW iX M50. It has two electric motors providing drive to all four wheels. Combined, they put out 523hp and 765Nm of torque. The iX weighs in at a whopping 2,510kg, which may actually prove useful for traction, and it has a towing capacity of 2,500kg.

The BMW X7 has a bit more pulling power than that, as it can tow up to 3,500kg. This is thanks to its 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8, which outs out 530hp and 750Nm of torque. It’s a touch lighter than the iX, tipping the scales at 2,490kg.

It’ll be interesting to see which of these two cars coms out on top, especially seeing as the winner of this tug of war will be taking on a new challenger: the mighty Mercedes-AMG G63. You’re looking at a proper off-roader here with a ladder frame chassis and three locking differentials. The big G weighs in t 2,560kg, and under the bonnet lies a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 585hp and 850Nm of torque.

Which of these three SUVs will come out on top? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
