Has anyone ever had a loss of power (like engine won't rev higher than 3000 rpm?

Straight to the details...
2011 Kia Sorento LX 2WD 4 Cylinders 1 2.4L MFI DOHC 144 CID
**Mileage is around 137000

pulling out of a parking lot the sudden loss of power and the tachometer goes from 3000rpm to 2500 to 2000...etc til engine stops
after nearly being rear-ended I was able to get off the road and tow home.
No sign of any problems just poof..
**changed the transmission fluid
**replaced fuel filter
**checked all connectors that i could find
**removed air box and replaced air filter...even though it wasn't very dirty
**OBD scan shows zero codes and in park the engine will rev slightly higher than when in drive.

Could a sudden drop in power be a fuel pressure related issue?
Could it be a CAT related issue? I placed my hand by the exhaust after letting it idle for about 10 min. seemed hot...but i can't test back pressure

So yeah..my baby is down for awhile.
any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

Is the "Check Engine" light on or was it on when this happened? I would start by hooking up a scanner to it and check for pending and past error codes. Also have the battery tested just to rule that out.
