Jeep Cherokee returns with a whole new look

The Jeep Cherokee is back, with a surprising design that could win some new buyers but lose some old fans. The 2014 Cherokee midsize SUV made its debut Wednesday at the New York International Auto Show.

The new Cherokee ditches Jeep's traditional boxy look for a more aerodynamic style. It replaces the brand's signature round headlights with sharply angled slits. The interior is plush and full of luxury options like automatic parallel parking. Even Jeep's seven-slat grille didn't go untouched - it's much smaller and creased in the middle to fold over the Cherokee's nose.

T-Mobile to sell iPhones

T-Mobile USA will start offering the iPhone on April 12.

It will charge $100 up front for the iPhone 5, then another $20 per month for two years, on top of service fees for voice, text and data that start at $50 per month. Total monthly cost starts at $70 per month, substantially below prices offered by bigger companies.

Signed home contracts dip

Fewer Americans signed contracts to buy homes in February, but the level stayed near a three-year high, and analysts believe sales of previously occupied homes will keep rising in the coming months, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday.
