The 1971 Monte Carlo noticed only slight styling changes and an added stand-up hood ornament.

The SS got new "European symbol knobs" and a four-spoke steering wheel became optional. This would be the last year for the SS 454 package, but the 454 V8 would be an option through 1975. The SS package was dropped due to it the car being marketed as a luxury car, not muscle car.

Mechanically, the Monte Carlo remained largely unchanged. The Turbo-Fire 400 1x2bbl engine was dropped. The other engines' compression ratios were decreased to use regular leaded, low-lead, or unleaded gasoline.
