For the 1971 model year AMC expanded the Hornet line to include a new station wagon model. As a compact, 4-door wagon with a rear hatch instead of a tailgate, the new Sportabout was unlike anything else from the other domestic automakers. A good seller for AMC, the car's basic design was modern enough to remain in production for 18 years, becoming the Concord, and finally the 4WD Eagle wagon which was produced into the 1988 model year. The 1971 Hornet Sportabout was inducted into the American Motors Hall of Fame in 2016 as Significant Vehicle.

One of the many unique aspects of the revolutionary AMC Pacer is that it was designed with a passenger's door that is several inches wider than the one on the driver's side. This was done for easier access to the rear seat on the curb side of the car. The difference in the length lands on an extra wide B-pillar, disguising the longer right-side door without any difference in the size of the windows from one side to the other. In fact most people never even noticed the difference. In 2020 this practical feature unique to the Pacer was inducted into the American Motors Hall of Fame in the category of AMC Innovation.

Once located in Mesa, Arizona, the Randall AMC/Jeep dealership gained a national reputation as one of AMC's premiere high performance outlets. This accelerated in the early 1970's when the dealership began installing 401 V8's in place of the stock 304 in new Gremlins to create the 401-XR package. When V8 Pacers became available it didn't take long for Randall to offer a 401-powered Pacer as well. In addition, the Randalls were active in motorsports which included road racing and off-road racing with Jeeps. The dealership remained an AMC powerhouse until closing in 1988, soon after the Chrysler takeover of AMC. Randall AMC/Jeep was inducted into the American Motors Hall of Fame in 2016 as Person or Entity, non-AMC.

Only months after the Nash/Hudson merger was completed, American Motors president George Mason passed away. Executive VP George W. Romney took his place in October 1954 and within a few years AMC saw its global standing rise significantly. A popular and savvy business executive despite his relatively young age, Romney focused the company's efforts on producing smaller cars, coining the phrase "gas guzzling dinosaurs" to describe the larger ones being offered by the Big Three automakers. After a successful term as CEO, Romney left American Motors to become governor of Michigan, serving in that capacity from 1963-69. George W. Romney died in 1995 at age 88, and was inducted into the AMC Hall of Fame in 2013 as Person of American Motors.
