You can't turn off the ECO mode, you can remove the indicator from flashing on the EVIC.
While there may be nothing economical about a 360HP SUV, it sure is fun!
FWIW, I average 16.8mpg during my weekly commute: 13-miles, 45min each way with a lot of lights and stop & go as I work on a Military Installation. I have averaged 20-mpg a round-trip for the few "long" trips (150+ miles one way) i've taken.
I am more than happy with this and from what I've read on this forum the V6 is marginally better, like 15%.
Sorry, I wasn't trying to turn this into a V6 vs V8 MPG thread - plenty of those exist.
