With under a month to go until the 2014 Detroit Motor Show, the event organizers announced an expected 50 worldwide debuts.

Ranging from concept cars to production vehicles, from domestics to imports, the halls at Detroit’s COBO Center will be crammed with new content. Among the confirmed debuts, Chevrolet will debut the new Z06 version of its seventh-generation Corvette. Mercedes will display its upcoming C-Class sedan, and Hyundai with its second-generation Genesis sedan. Ford hasn’t officially confirmed that its next F-Series truck will be unveiled there, but it seems likely given that the Atlas concept bowed there last year.

Lexus will bring its new RC-F performance coupe and you can expect to see BMW’s new M3 and M4 siblings on display. There will be concept cars from MINI, Volvo and Audi among others. The German-owned British brand known for sporting Union Jacks will have a concept preview of the John Cooper Works variant to its new Cooper S first seen in L.A. last November.

Two weeks ago, Audi teased a crossover coupe concept with little information than the fact that it will debut during the upcoming show. Volvo’s concept is the second of three planned vehicles meant to preview the brand’s future design direction.
