That could be a number of things. Might need new spark plugs, oil change, transmission work. Also depends on when it tends to cut out. For example, if it cuts out when you are accelerating harder than normal, that is probably the spark plugs. If it cuts out when it gets real hot, it's overheating. If you have a code reader, i recommend using it, try to pull a code off of it. If nothing comes up, take it in to your local auto repair shop.
