So it looks like the 16000LM from auxito below is your best bet.

I run sealight 14000LM but i don't see them on amazon in H7. But auxito is a good brand there are a ton of options on amazon as well. Lumens is the number you want to pay attention too.

Companies like auxito leave vehicles blank if it doesn't accept their bulbs.

In your case they have caps on the rear. I leave those off in applications of LED's where there are caps.

Did it open directly to the model and without projector low beam bulbs?

So if you put your vehicle info in and under location select low beam it shows H7 bulb as it would fit, or they would have very unhappy customers, in contrast if you put in a 2013 escalade there are no headlight options because they don't make anything to fit an escalade.

As long as you have no projector your's is H7

Only decision you would have to make is if your ok with the dust cap being off.

On my truck yes, in alot of cases it's just easier that way.

The bulb cavity is sealed by gasket on bulb so I don't believe dust cover off would be an issue. Only time i've seen it be an issue is the c6 corvette because it's projector and the empty space in front of projector is what dust cover protects.
