the normal operating temp in normal driving conditions can b up to 220. if your driving aggresively up to 250. the engines are really big they take a long time to get warm. when the temp is out of range the car will let you know.

I guess they put so much cooling into the engine assuming we'll be driving it at high rpm all the time, that when we don't the engine stays cold...
