I guess the lower weight due to the fiberglass body, and the 3.9L turbodiesel backed by a manual transmission (just can't remember if it's 4 or 5-speed), are enought for this Brazilian-made van named Ibiza and based in a 5th-gen Ford F-Series platform to be deemed somewhat eco in comparison to the Ford E-Series.

Ford Mondeo SW

Beetle with a weird soft-top conversion

Not sure if the Hyundai Tiburon would qualify as eco but, as it looks quite similar to the Ford ZX2, it might justify being considered eco.

S123 Merc 300TD

W124 300D

A lower-grade Diesel version of the Nissan Frontier D22 still fitted with the TD27 engine

Toyota HiAce originally RHD converted to LHD in Chile or Paraguay, currently registered in Paraguay

Mitsubishi Triton with a 4-cyl turbodiesel, manual transmission and wooden flatbed


Peugeot Partner Origin

And this Opel Meriva, locally rebadged as a Chevy, serving as a medical car
