Did carMD offer a solution? Sounds like a mass air flow sensor/, OR a throttle position sensor problem which is part of the throttle body assembly. Or the circuit. See a carMEchanic and let him check it out, may check for tsb.

Throttle is fly by wire with 2sensors one on firewall one on the throttle body. If they're not in sync truck will usually say reduced engine power.
