Hard front end kick when jeep starts a

I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee v6. When I start it up the front end kicks, not always, but very noticeable at times. Sometimes theirs a loud clunk. I had the dealer check it and they said its normal. Sometimes it's so bad that I quickly slam on the brakes, because it feels like it's gear. Has anyone experienced this?? Any resolutions? Thanks

Same thing, i can see this connected to the transmission.
Never had a vehicle where I had that clunk right after starting the vehicle...

Certainly not "normal".
