1993 Jeep Ecco

The Ecco blended the simple, go-anywhere trademarks of earlier Jeep vehicles with ideas to meet the concerns of the environmentally-friendly generation. The turtle-colored Ecco was constructed of recyclable aluminum and plastic components and powered by a lean-bum, two-stroke engine. The small 1.5-liter engine was Chrysler's "Series Three" all-aluminum design, which was placed in the mid-section of the vehicle, and produced 85 horsepower. While lightweight, this two-door four-passenger full-time four-wheel-drive vehicle used plastic "rafts" to support and protect the upper body.
