From brawny pickup trucks and growling high-performance cars to economical subcompacts, the North American International Auto Show in Detroit likely will have something that appeals to every driver.

Show organizers expect more than 50 new model introductions when the show kicks off Monday and Tuesday with 5,000 journalists attending the press days. These introductions are crucial because sales growth is starting to slow and new models tend to capture more buyers than older ones.

Ford is expected to steal the show with a new version of the F-150 pickup truck, but there are other notable cars and trucks coming. For drivers who like a fun ride, new sports cars are expected from BMW, Toyota and Lexus.

The show opens to the public on Saturday, Jan. 18
