Cruising and restricting issue

I've had my 2015 Altitude for almost 2 weeks now and it is driving different every single day. One day it feels OK, the next sluggish, the next hard shifts all day, etc. etc. Anyways, today it felt the weirdest of them all. Hard shifting all day and delayed downshifts. But in addition, for some reason today the car felt "stiff" if that makes sense. In other words, when cruising and taking my foot off the gas pedal it was almost as if the car felt like it was braking yet I never touched the break. It just felt like the car was "restricted" in a sense. To be honest, I actually checked down at the parking brake to make sure it was off. It's hard to describe in words, but the best I can say is that it felt like I was getting pulled backwards at times when trying to move forward. Like there was something restricting the car from opening up and going! Messed up. Anyways, would love to know if anyone else has experienced this. New to Jeeps. Thanks!

Note: I have driven in stop & go Chicago traffic for the past 3-5 days. Basically 90% stop and go. Not sure if that contributes to the behavior of the vehicle as well.

Also, isn't there some kind of "reset" that I read about that involves the battery/fuses?
