It doesn’t sound like clutch slipping, if that was the case the rpms would skyrocket while your speed stayed the same. It sounds to me like your vehicle is in limp mode. If that was the case it would be throwing some sort of codes for sure and I’m guessing you would have a warning light.

This problem can develop at any speed, depending on which gear of the transmission is going bad.
