A suggestion: BURP your radiator. Run with radiator cap off 'til coolant circulates; watch for pockets of air to be expelled through open radiator fill nozzle. After a few minutes of this, turn off engine, top off radiator with coolant, restore radiator cap and see if operating temperature is reduced.

Air pockets in the cooling system can cause the symptom you describe. The recommended procedure may not help, but won't hurt anything if you monitor the temperature gauge as you're doing.

Also, examining possibilities, . . .unlikely, but . . . temperature sensor could be mis-calibrated. I think a calibration procedure exists in service manuals.
