I live in KY and I see tons of 2013+ year model PF's everywhere. I would be surprised if they revamped the model. They won't go back to a body on frame design. I'm also a member in an Xterra forum and 2015 is the last year for that model. Truck-based SUV's are a dying breed. Toyota also killed the FJ model. The only true SUV still in production (moving forward) is a 4Runner that I can think of off the top of my head (outside of very large SUV's: Tahoe, Suburban, Armada, etc.)

In the KY market, the PF's are priced very competitively. I got my 2014 SL Premium Package including accessories (cargo pack., roof rails, rubber mats, wheel locks, tow package, etc.) for just over $34k out the door with taxes; it stickered for $41k. Compared to competition of other brands the PF is still a great value if you're ok with its qwerks. My only complaint so far is the paint quality.

I bought the PF for myself, but will likely be giving it to my wife in the next year or so for her to drive.

Wouldn't it be nice to think that they're working to get it right this time?

LOL yeah right. Nissan can't get this vehicle right why would they consider offering a performance model? It's not a Pathfinder anyone, never in history did the Pathfinder ever offer anything like this.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm totally with you on this line of thinking. When I first got my 2014 I was thinking I wanted to modify it and go down that path. I use to race 1/4 street and haven't had a sports car in many years.
The quality of the Pathfinder for me is so poor now that I'm moving on. I'm getting a Dodge Durango R/T with a HEMI when my lease runs out next Month.
I looked at the 2017 models as honestly I'm a Nissan kinda guy up until I got the 2014. Now I have a very bad taste in my mouth that I was hoping the 2017 would wash out. It's basically the same exact crossover( It's not a truck anymore) with some minor changes. All of the changes are improvements over the 2013-2015 models but not enough for me to get another one.

I'm honestly sad to leave Nissan and move into Dodge. I'm also excited as I have drove 3 of the Durango's now and man they are totally better in every single way. I have not found anything yet that I prefer on the Nissan over the Dodge especially the power but thats pretty un fair as the Durango has 360 HP and 390 LBS of torque. Thats a huge difference even compared to the new 285 the 2017 has which is still 10hp less the the standard engine in the regular Durango's.
If I was gonna get a v6 again I'd still get a Durango. It's much better looking vehicle and it's much funner to drive. It handles so much better you don't get all that body roll when you go into a corner like you do with the so called Pathfinder.

I also believe my next vehicle will be a Durango R/T (but keeping the PF). I drove one one of the many times my PF was at the dealer and fell in love with it. I wish I could afford the upcoming SRT.
A few things that you can't find on the Durango:
- Second row doesn't slide
- No bird's view
- No second row sunroof
- Fuel Economy

Another thing you won't find on the Dodge is quality. Unless things have dramatically changed in the last couple of years, Chryco products are unreliable. I will certainly never buy another one.

Yeah the SRT is just outside of my price range as well or I would absolutely get one.
The second row sliding doesn't concern me.
I don't sit in the back so the Sunroof is cool the way it comes.
I gladly give up some fuel economy for the performance. I love that it shifts.

Nissan quality isn't what is use to be. Dodge has stepped up over the last few years, their quality is much better. But I do agree with you their quality years ago was poor especially for rears and transmissions.

That is why I didn't even consider a Durango 2+ years ago and bought a Nissan believing I was buying a more reliable vehicle.... I can tell you that I will certainly never buy another Nissan and after this experience, I'm not afraid to buy any other brand.
