I have a 2.7l 5 speed. I havent towed any cars but I have towed some heavy shit. As long as you take it easy and dont ride your clutch or push the engine more then you should, then you will do fine. Just dont try to haul ass going uphill or anything.

Having the Tow package always helped, Ive pulled quite a few things up to around 5000 pounds so you should be good towing a small car.
