car shut off

I have a question... I was driving my chevy cruze 2012 and the temp was 107° outside... driving probably for 30 minutes. Pulled into a Starbucks drive thru and the car stopped. We had the AC on but no indication that my car was over heating. We had are coolant changed about 2 years ago. Those anyone know way my car turned off? Any recommendations. TIA

By stop I'm assuming you mean the engine stalled. Not sure but I do know the a/c sure puts some strain on the engine at idle. With that outside temp being so extreme I'd say the engine was over powered by the a/c at idle that it stalled. What happened after it stopped?
Is the check engine light on? Did it restart without issue?
