Slow trans kick down

Hello,
I am now again a jeep gc owner. I love my new truck, but have a very small issue.
I feel i need to almost floor the gas to get the transmission to kick down and get moving.

Also from a stop light it seems like i need to floor it to really get moving. It seems the first half travel of stepping on gas does little. When i really step on it hard, the hemi really comes alive! I just want to see if there was anything in between my ALL or nothing acceleration? I got the hemi to get that extra push, but do not want to floor it everyday either. Anyone experience this? Or better yet. Any suggestions?

Re: Slow trans kick down

If your JGC is brand new then it probably just needs time for the computer to map everything out. My V6 was the same way but has gotten much more responsive after 4 months/5k miles.

Re: Slow trans kick down

Ive done some searching on here and it looks like many ppl have this issue with the electronic throttle. There was a service bulletin on the 2011. I hope the 2012 comes out soon
