Default Engine does not rev over 4k

Today I was playing with my car, 06 Base model, and I realized that the car in "D" does not rev over 4k rpm. It sound it wants to die. It just doesn't go over 4000. It starts shaking. Otherwise it idles normal, and seems like it runs great, gets bad gas mileage (17mpg average- but just got the car and I did play with it a little) but this thing bothers me. Is it normal? Does it have a cutoff built in?

it's called a rev limiter, and it's there for a reason.

Thanks! Just bought this thing, I had a 78 Cadillac until now. That thing did not have a rev limiter :-) Still learning...

"Search' would have been your friend in this instance.

There is a TON of info on this site at your fingertips, especially in the "how-to" area at the top of the tech section.
