Is the WK limited to 110mph?

A "friend" of mine was driving his WK/ with a HEMI today and hit an empty stretch of freeway and at 110mph I, I mean "he" noticed the gas cut out like it does when you hit redline. "He" wants to know if the WK is limited to 110mph.

I will pass the info on to him - thanks.

Hahahah

If you get a tuner, you can disable the speed limiter. (DiabloSport or Superchip)

Re: Is the WK limited to 110mph?

Speed limiter???????????

Not on the UK models ---my 3.0CRD SLtd pulls 125 with no limiter

i have driven a couple of other 3.0 CRD vehicles and they perform the same so you must just be unlucky that you have a speed limiter huh..............

Re: Is the WK limited to 110mph?

WK SRT is mechanically limited at I believe 168-170mph. Lot of old threads arguing over there but the top of 5th OD is 168-170mph, varied on each individual truck but don't think anyone has ever gone any faster without changing diffs/tires etc etc.

Do not drive high speeds unless you have correct speed rated tires

Re: Is the WK limited to 110mph?

Yes the WK is 110 limited but it can be removed. As said above please do not exceed the tires speed rating.

At 110+ a blown tire is pretty much a death sentence!

Shown below is what the speed rating letter equates to in MPH.

L 75 mph 120 km/h Off-Road & Light Truck Tires
M 81 mph 130 km/h
N 87 mph 140km/h Temporary Spare Tires
P 93 mph 150 km/h
Q 99 mph 160 km/h Studless & Studdable Winter Tires
R 106 mph 170 km/h H.D. Light Truck Tires
S 112 mph 180 km/h Family Sedans & Vans
T 118 mph 190 km/h Family Sedans & Vans
U 124 mph 200 km/h
H 130 mph 210 km/h Sport Sedans & Coupes
V 149 mph 240 km/h Sport Sedans, Coupes & Sports Cars
W 168 mph 270 km/h Exotic Sports Cars
Y 186 mph 300 km/h Exotic Sports Cars

While a Z-speed rating still often appears in the tire size designation of these tires, such as 225/50ZR16 91W, the Z in the size signifies a maximum speed capability in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h; the W in the service description indicates the tire's 168 mph, 270 km/h maximum speed.
