2014 ZF 8HP70 transmission temperature

After driving on the highway for an hour (without gunning the accelerator much), or as little as 20 minutes when I do floor it, the transmission temperature easily gets up to 200 F.

What's the normal operating temperature for the ZF 8HP70 transmission for the 2014 Jeep SRT? What have others experienced?

From this link below, I'm led to believe that the temperature should be around 176F, and if it stays at 200F, the lifespan of the transmission is only 50K miles!

Here's the link that says the ideal transmission temperature is 176F.
