Mists of Pandaria: Challenge Modes
For the current Challenge Mode guide as of Patch 5.1,

what their most exciting feature was for Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard responded with
. This feature has a lot of cool things in store: rewards include mounts and vanity armor, it's content you can't outgear, and it's a great way for skilled players on a limited schedule to access challenging content.
Challenge Mode Overview
Challenge Modes are timed heroic instance runs, done in low ilvl gear. Any gear worn above ilvl 463 will be scaled down. This ensures that running these instances will be challenging even in later tiers--you can't outgear it. In addition, the pulls will be more complex than on Heroic mode.
All nine Mists of Pandaria dungeons will come with Challenge Modes.
Durability will not be affected by running Challenge Modes, since you won't be getting items/gold from bosses. This is separate from rewards earned for completing the instance.
There is no limit to the amount of consumables and other weird buff/CC items you can use.
Hit and expertise caps will remain the same in spite of scaled-down gear: your other stats will take a hit. Keep in mind that dungeon mobs have a lower level than raid bosses, if you want to reforge. Full details on gear scaling
There are three tiers of rewards: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. We've listed these rewards below, which include mounts, pets, titles, Feats of Strength, and armor!
There will be leaderboards across your guild and realm tracking the best times.
Even after rewards have been obtained, it's worth it for a good group to continue perfecting times to show up on the leaderboard. Fast times also reward 0

Mechanisms have been added to prevent skipping trash or cheesing pulls, such as areas that won't open up unless you've killed a certain number of trash mobs.

There's also a Realm First FoS for being the first player to complete all Challenge Modes on Gold:
The armor rewards are statless, but have really distinctive designs--their only purpose is for vanity. Rumor has it that you'll unlock a special vanity animation as well--like demon wings from the Warlock helm or Warriors bursting into flames--but Blizzard has only provided hints about this.
The teleport rewards, added later, are pretty convenient with
