2017 U.S. Monthly Auto Sales Calendar And Selling Days For Every Month


2017 monthly calendar

The U.S. auto industry’s sales calendar is not exactly like the calendar hanging on the back of your office door.

December 2016, for example, begins on December 1, 2016, but does not end until Tuesday, January 3, 2017. 

But that’s an even shorter December than in 2015, when December featured 28 selling days, one more than in 2016. 

Here then is the complete U.S. auto sales calendar for the 2017 calendar year, which stretches from the fourth day of January 2017 all the way to the second day of January 2018. Confusing? Just keep this auto sales calendar handy.

This explains why you’ll often hear so much discussion in certain months on the subject of daily selling rates. Although January, February, March, June, and November of 2017 are all the same length as their equivalent months one year earlier, April, July, October, and December will be shorter; May, August, and September will be longer.
