Ah yeah I have a car that’s limited at 90 for cruise... but it goes up to 130. I chalk it up to being a car with advanced safety features that can’t operate at above that speed (90 mph)... so the jags cruise goes to 95 but it’s not limited at 95 right? My Cruze has no safety features like auto-braking or adaptive cruise or lane keep.
It goes cruise up to 112 but it goes faster than that when driven there.
I take most of my rentals to their max (or until The car is shaking and my knuckles turn white)

2018 Passat: 95mph (top speed 115 electronically limited)

I did cut about 1 hour 15 minutes off a 5 hour 20 minute drive (per Google Maps) despite that. But having such a low electronically limited max does let you use your right foot as its own cruise control, where you just leave your foot weighed down on the pedal.

2011 F250: 95mph (top speed 95 mph electronically limited

I have not figured out the cruise control top speed for all my vehicles, but the ones I know are below:

2018 Ford Raptor, with the stock tune the cruise control topped out at 107 MPH, after tune and Fordscan tweaking it is now 145 MPH.

2018 Lincoln MkX 121 MPH.

2015 Miata MX-5, apparently no cruise control top speed, whatever you can get the car up to you can set the cruise to.

1972 Chrysler New Yorker, over 100.

1964 Chrysler New Yorker, not sure, but I know you can set it over 100 with the dial knob.

And various after market add on cruise controls, all unlimited.

T!

I see on this one the top speed but on others, I wonder if its the adaptive that limits the speed. If you turn that off it might allow a higher setting. I assume its accounting for its own ability to process what’s in front of it so it can adapt. Until you guys starting chatting about it I had not thought about it. 90 was the top I used and went in my own car. I have driven faster just not in the SUV I have now. I can tell you now 110 is easy enough but I didn’t set the cruise. My tires are speed rated to 130 which I think the car can do.

It won’t do more than 115. I tried.

But yes for my posts: I’ll check the top the cruise computer allows. Then I’ll turn that off or leave it on and floor it and see where it stops.

Don’t be fooled by the tire rating : they prioritize comfort and tread pattern/wear over the speed the car can do (if it’s not a sports or powerful car) even the jag rental had higher speed rated tires (W at 168mph rating) than what it would set its limit at (cruise or governor)

90 on my 2019 Insight. And it automatically turns off cruise when you go above that. :(

The car easily handles 120 on flat to moderate inclines. Once up to speed, the electric motor takes over and she glides nicely, and the combustion engine RPM's come way down to mid level. So, I guess I just have to floor it manually. :(

I guess I should have mentioned at 90 I am just turning 2k RPM and averaging about 19 MPG ha. Acura MDX with a 9 speed transmission. I will work on the other answer soon.

Cruise control speed range on a 2020 911 Carrera S is 20 to 150 MPH per the owner's manual. Mine has adaptive cruise control, so its range is 19 to 130 MPH.

Imo if you car doesn’t have advanced braking, you should not be going over 100mph.

Most cars CAN go over 100mph, but higher end cars, can stop safely and abruptly at those speeds where regular cars will have trouble with handling and stopping times at those speeds. Brake systems can easily get overheated which will rapidly decrease their performance (from driving experience). Tires as well can get overheated and when performance goes down on both, thats a recipe for disaster.

Open straight roads, all good. Track, all good. Traffic or curved roads = not a good idea in a normal car.

Acura TLX=100 mph cruise control limit (ACC)

As for my car, ive tested its braking capabilities, although i can go 140/150 ill never go past 120 bc thats what i feel the brakes can handle and i have the aspec package with extra suspension, handling, and brakes. Just my 2 cents

143 in a Sonata! Mind blown.

And that one is way older.

Actually any car with good enough aerodynamics, the correct gearing and with no speed limiter will go that fast. How long it will take it to go there is another story.

03 seville was at least 100 same thing for 06 dts.

Only cars i have owned with under 100k. Seen a picture on the cadillac forum? Where a guy took a picture going 100 @ 100,000. Thought it was a cool idea so did the same thing
