That was quick! I have a few more little things to add, more detailed info may still be awhile until it can be better confirmed....
Seeing as bruno found your glasses and you have crystal balls it was the least I could do. I'm trying to remember what else Mr. X said.

Mr. X was mainly covering a couple of the new Jeep features, of which I now have a pretty detailed list from my usual "sources". But don't remember him touching much if at all on the LX models...?

Again folks, another first from ResumeSpeed. I just knew he was holding back information from his secret liaison!

Actually I was expecting to see something about passive entry, but he was dead on with the 6.4 MDS though.

The interesting stuff:

The 2011 Charger will not be based on the LX platform (or at least, you say so) - will it be on the LD platform? You didn't quite explain that one.

if passive entry is like the challenger's keyless go, that mean you won't need a key at all since anyone will be able to unlock/start the car? XD

OMG the 2011 will get an 8 speed?! The DSG is gonna happen?! *DREAMS* That'll be SO CRAZY AWESOME

*DROOLS*Man if that came out next year using the same body as the current 300 and a new interior they would KILL acura/lexus/all the other pansies.

2011 Chrysler 300 LX

All-new generation
Extensive interior upgrades
8-sp auto transmission (2011/2012)
Hybrid electric model (2011/2012)
New Phoenix 3.6L MDS VVT V6 engine replaces 3.5L
5.7L Hemi VCT continues
New 6.4L Hemi with MDS (SRT8)

Wow! 6.4l with MDS and an 8 speed?

Holy crap....This thing should put out 500+HP and still get the same, if not better MPG than the current 6.1

I'm looking forward to this big time.

Hopefully Chrysler can hold it together as a company to see that actually happen.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Chrysler’s Blind Spot Monitoring system aids drivers when changing lanes if being passed by vehicles or when vehicles are positioned in the blind spot zone. Drivers are notified of a potential hazard via an illuminated icon on the sideview mirror, and if the turn signal is operated, an audible chime can act as an additional warning. Blind Spot Monitoring – which uses dual ultra-wideband radar sensors – is active any time the vehicle is moving forward.

I thunk the major interior refresh was coming in 2010. Now it is 2011. I guess I thunk wrong.

Mr X and "sources". Is this all legal?
Makes me think of Nixon's Deepthroat. But then he was never uncovered while alive.

I can't even think of how they could drastically change the car's exterior. I mean, there's a few areas outside that could stand for a freshening up, but the whole car? I hope they do it well.
However, the interior can only get better (I hope). If the new Ram's interior is any indicator of how Chrysler is making their interiors it should be awesome.
