Transmission issue would be my guess.

This is especially troubling when driving uphill on the higheay at this rate of speed . Anyone know what this problem could be ? There is nomcheck engine light coming on or any other sign telling me there is an issue. TIA
Try getting the CVT fluid changed. I agree with the other posters - it could be a CVT issue or a CVT sensor related issue putting the car into limp mode. Those Jatco units are not very good and Nissan's had ongoing issues with them. As I suggested, though, a quick and cheap item to check off would be the fluid.

Not enough info to be sure, but this would have been my first guess. Possibly a partially clogged fuel filter that won't allow additional fuel above the speed range that the OP is reporting.

If your car has a manual transmission that could be normal. Versas with a stick have high highway speed rpms. Welcome to C-D!

3000 RPM or higher at 75mph is pretty standard for normally aspirated 4cyl and 6cyl motors.

Years ago, I had a 1972 Ford Pinto with the same problem. Never could figure out what caused it.

Could be the fact that it had about 13 horsepower?

I had a 2015 Sentra mine did the same thing it’s normal. I knew it wouldn’t take long for someone to bring up the cvt especially from someone who never had one.
