Fuel Economy (ECO) Mode

In the 'Starting and Operating' section of the Jeep Cherokee 2015 Owner's Manual there is mention of 'fuel economy (ECO) Mode'. The manual states ECO mode can improve the vehicle's overall fuel economy during normal driving conditions. It also states to activate ECO mode do the following:
Press the "Controls" button on the touch screen.
Then press "ECO" button on the touch screen.
My questions are as follows:
1. What/how does this ECO mode improve the vehicle's fuel economy??
2. Is this mode on both the 2.4L and/or 3.2L engines??
3. WHERE is the ECO button on the touch screen?
I have a 2015 Cherokee Limited 4 X 4 with a 3.2L engine and 8.4A Uconnect. I am "stumped" as I can't find the ECO button or light on the Electronic Vehicle Information Center or Driver Information Display.
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks

A feature not really available on the KL, incorrect reference.

I also saw the 'Eco Mode' in the manual and wondered if it was a mistake when I couldn't find it on the touch screen. I thought maybe it was something that the '14 had but not my '15.
