unusual drag 2011 5.7l overland

Hi, I notice drag when releasing the gas pedal which wouldnt bother me but the intensity often varies. The vehicle coasts better in sport vs auto but some times it actually coasts with very little braking effect and other times it drags so much that my passenger is constantly head bobbing when letting off the gas. When I am experiencing the drag it doesnt matter wether highway or city speeds.

Just would like some input from other owners on possible causes. Maybe someone could give me something to compare with for rate of deceleration at different speeds.

I plan on having my brakes checked also wondering if something like dirty tb could be a factor or not.

Thanks in advance.

Sadly I noticed this with my 2012 V8 Overland and also with the vehicle it replaced, a 2015 V8 Overland.

Others have noticed and mentioned this effect. No one mentioned a fix.

My spark plugs are also due to be changed. Im going to see if that and cleaning the tb will make any difference.
