Although the configurator tool does seem to allow the trailer tow package on a 1.4/6sp drivetrain, this is likely a bug in the configurator. Several other documents - and an e-mail response I got from Jeep - indicate that the tow package will only be available with the 2.4/9sp automatic drive-train. I'm personally coming around to the idea of choosing the 2.4/9sp. But I really want to drive them both and see. If I end up with the 1.4, I'll probably look for an aftermarket 1 1/4" hitch for my bike rack. Not ideal - since that will probably hang below the rear bumper and reduce departure clearance. But such is life.I really want the towing option as well as the removable MySky panels and I believe both of these features are available as part of the Sport and Latitude (6-speed manual) packages.
