Yup! Window dressing. Fancy fenders still doesn't make it an off-roader.

I wouldnt be so negative Smile

First of all the wheels that come with it are smashing and clearly patterned after the Xterra/Frontier/Titan PRO4X wheels, which is a beautiful thing

And the looks are pretty good.
In a way it now reminds me a bit of a bigger badder Subaru .

All they need now is a factory lift with some skipads and they are there.
Keep in mind the R50 was unibody too and most people accept it being a good offroader Smile

I agree...the Rock Creek is really only an appearance package and it works. No one buying a new Pathfinder today thinks they are buying a true off-road vehicle. I wish the wheels were 20" but I have the part numbers for the 6 piece fender covers and I intend to add them to my 2017. I don't know if they also require special attachment parts...I will check that out when I can look one over at the Dealership.

that green is also beautiful.

Definitely a candidate for AT tires.

Great find, Fred! After watching it, I can't help but wonder if Nissan is perhaps missing the boat on experimenting with making more of the components comparable with the R51, thus making it more off-road worthy. I know a lot of guys and gals on this forum would jump at the chance to buy an R52 off-roader.

The Rockcreek package is only 995 Bucks!
Thats a lot of stuff for the money (nicer seats, gorgeous wheels, blackout trim) vs the regular R52.

To me it seems more like what Nissan has as the "Blackout Edition" in the rest of its model line.

Yes it isnt a "PRO4X" type trim, but neither is it priced as such.
