Default V8 top speed?

I have a 2013 1500 Big horn with the 5.7 hemi and 3.55 axle. A quick search on the net shows a top speed of between 105 mph and 120 mph depending on the site. I know the trucks aren't meant to be sports cars, but that seems low for this engine.

I would guess the factory settings can be changed for a higher speed.

It's the computer that is stopping you. 105 is the limit.

That is just what the factory has he governor set to. Just about any programmer/tuner can either disable the governor or you can change it to a higher speed that the truck won't ever hit.

Limits will be determined by the tire speed rating. As posted, this can be changed with any programmer/tuner

There is a YouTube video of a 2009 ram 1500 topping out at 142mph. Obviously he has a tunner on it.
