I would start by changing the fuel filter and go from there.

when was the last time you had your car tuned up? spark plugs, wires, air filter, pcv valve etc.

Changing the fuel filter sounds good, then checking fuel pump pressure. Could be weakened fuel pump having troubel keeping up with fuel flow at higher speed

Well at 45 the torque converter clutch locks up. If it is starting to go out every time it tries to engage it will shudder for a little till it stops. A fuel issue should be more noticeable at idle of on takeoff during harder throttle and rpm
