Mitsubishi eclipse

Does anybody know if the 2006 or later models with the 6 speed manual can be towed four down? I know the 5 speed manual mated to the four cyl can, but I am unclear re the 6speed. It matters as I'm about to buy one, and would rather have the six. Thanks.

Sadly, the one in my avatar met a violent end

I had already seen that. This is why I was asking for anecdotal evidence re the 6 speed . Anybody?

I have a Outlander with the six speed auto tranny. I have not found any information to this date about towing 4 down.
If I do I will pass it on.
