Answer: 
Currently, no.
The only Flexvolt tool that comes with 2 batteries is the miter saw. The drill/impact combo does have 2 batteries with it, but only one is a 60/20 flexvolt (the other is a current 20vMax series).
Can't rule out that at some point (Christmas or Father's day in particular) that some special kits would be released with 2 Flexvolt batteries though.

Answer: 
The new 20/60v batteries will work on all 20v Dewalt tools and chargers.
The new 20/60v chargers will work with older 20v batteries too
The 20v batteries will NOT work on new tools designed for the 20/60v battery pack though. (The technical exception would be the impact driver that comes in the drill/impact combo kit, since it was still designed to be a 20v series tool).

The instruction guide states under a section labeled: "Use Mode" that when the battery is on a 20V tool, it will operate as a 20V battery. When on a 60V or 120V it wil operate as a 60V.

I am not sure by the functionality you mean by a four position blade clamp. I THINK I know, but am not 100% . IF you are looking at the blade mount "head on", I believe you mean the blade can be installed vertically in two positions (Cutting side) up or down.. Then/OR it can be loaded horizontally with the cutting side to the left and/or the right.

FLEXVOLT 60-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Brushless Reciprocating Saw is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful This is just as powerful as the 110v saw I have. It's a little heavy if your're cutting over head for any length of time. I like the keyless lever-action blade clamp for quick and easy blade changing feature. I got the kit that came with the battery, charger and bag. The bags nice to keep everything in one place. I have a drill driver and impact drive that can use the 20/60 volt battery which is nice and I can charge the 20 v batteries as well. The fan in the charger is a little noisy. Also - with the right blade I've used it to trim lower branches on trees and shrubs around the property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING POWER FOR A BATTERY OPERATED SAW This is a standard size reciprocating saw with some cool new features. First it's battery powered so it can easily go anywhere, anytime. The flex battery will work in a variety of Dewalt tools that use 20-60 volts. This saw preforms well with that 60 volt battery for great power. Cuts for quite a while on a single charge, cutting most anything a 110 saw will. Full power cut until the battery goes dead. Has a very handy flip lever for loading the blades into the collet for fast and easy blade changes. Battery charges in about an hour. Charger cooling fan is rather noisy, not much heavier than a corded saw. Comes with charger, short bi-metal blade and carrying bag. Be sure to fully charge the battery before use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome power I cut 12 very wet pressure treated 6x6's with this flex volt recip saw. It has a ton of power and cuts like butter. It seemed a little heavy at first, but the weight helps when you use it, now i dont notice how heavy it is. This saw is leaps and bounds better than their 20 volt receip saw. Dewalts flexvolt system seems awesome

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DeWalt Dropped The Ball This could have been DeWalt's best reciprocating saw ever, but they skimped in the engineering & design. I'd have paid extra for a shorter design ( the DCS 387 is only 14.5" vs 17.72"), a 4-Position Blade Clamp & a Telescoping Shoe. If someone offered me a free upgrade to this model, I'd stick with my DCS 387...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a TANK and works just as hard! The first thing that you notice right off the bat is the weight. It's close to 12lbs. One would think that the weight would be a bit off-putting, but there is a reason for it - that weight helps the operator get behind that weight to complete your saw job. The sheer power behind this tool is INCREDIBLE! The main reason why this tool was ordered was for help with building a covered patio out off the back of our home. There were pressure treated 6x6's that had to be notched out and they were beasts to get through. The circular saw was only able to dig into a small area of it. we needed BRAUN! Out came the FlexVolt Reciprocating Saw, and BOOM notches were completed in no time flat! The time saving factor alone because of it's power was substantial. This saw is a beast, and it can tackle any situation that you put in front of it. Using this tool only becomes easier because it also has a helpful light built into the front of the saw to help light up your work surfaces! Now lets talk about that battery charger! The battery arrived with a slight charge from the factory - so I popped it into the TurboCharger - in a half an hour it was FULLY charged! The charger itself has a fan inside to allow it to power up your battery fast than a regular lithium tool charger! The FlexVolt allows you to use the 60V supplied battery for full power OR you can use one of the DeWalt 20V batteries for a little less power, but it still works with quite a punch of power! We used that original battery all day off and on today in six beefy pressure treated 6x6's and it never wavered on it's original charge - we literally could not put a dent in draining the battery -- now I'm sure that a professional construction crew would be able to put a good dent in the power, but I gotta say, that battery just trudged through and powered through without any indication of it being a difficult job by any means. It's built to be USED. It's built to LAST, and it's built to SAW - without a doubt one of THE most impressive tools that we've tested out in a very long time! Well worth making this your choice - it's going to last! Add to all of this that it comes in a very nicely made heavy duty work bag, and it's a tool that should be at the top of any serious builder looking for a long lasting tool that will be there for the long term!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! This portable reciprocating saw is great! I have to be honest, when this saw arrived, I felt like a little kid in a candy store! They made a lot of great improvements, starting with the battery. It still locks in place both on the saw and on the charger, so it's not going anywhere and the capacity is a huge improvement. I used it for a few hours and it didn't even lose an LED on the charging indicator. The battery does add some weight due to the extra capacity, but it's not a problem. I'm sure professionals out there will use the battery up a lot faster than I ever could, but that's even more reason for them to consider this saw if they need one. I could not believe how easy it was to load the blade into the tool. Just lift up on the lever and insert the blade and release. You're done, that's it! It's just as easy to remove. Very simple to operate, just unlock and press the trigger. Release and lock when not in use. The LED light isn't nearly as bright as typical smartphone LED lights, but at least they tried to help light up whatever you're trying to cut. It's not bright enough to work in the dark and isn't meant for that application. It might help under a counter or something like that. The saw made short work of cutting branches, wood, and I have yet to cut metal for practical purposes, but it makes short work of metal too! It came with a small metal cutting blade, but you'll definitely want to purchase some additional blades along with this so you can have some versatility. I went for the 15-piece that comes with a case. This tool really made the job easy and it's not too heavy. High recommended! Good job Dewalt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth and precise feel I have been using the same Rigid cordless sawzall for over five years and the tool started to give me trouble. I saw the Flexvolt tools and was immediately impressed! So I bought this Dewalt sawzall and after getting the battery all charged up I went and continued where I left off cutting up some small trees and branches, between 1" and 7" in diameter, WOW what a difference!! This Dewalt sawzall cut through the thick and green trees with ease! The weight is perfect and it just makes cutting effortlessly . Got the Rigid for sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 60 vt Bought this and others for a longer battery life - tool it self is great, better than my corded sazall... battery life is good but when they say 4times longer...they mean from the 1mh battery..not what I expected for battery life
