Then it canceled the X-Terra, leaving no Nissan-branded off-roader in North America. Somehow, debuting a special edition of the current Pathfinder that looks tough is supposed to make this better?

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition really toughens up the crossover with dark 18-inch wheels, all-season tires, and black exterior trim pieces.
