2017 Traverse Stutter on Acceleration?

I have a 2017 Chevy Traverse with 50,000 miles.

The issue is that often when it is in high acceleration, such as turning onto a freeway, etc the whole car stutters and there is no power. I can back off of the acceleration and its just fine. It sounds like there is a grinding/stuttering noise coming from the front wheels but I can't be sure. There are no warning lights that come on and it drives fine if I lesson the acceleration.

My best guess as to what is happening is the car may be in too low of a gear to accelerate that quickly, and just shutters because it can't get into a higher gear... or, there is an issue with the ABS/traction control? I don't know for sure. I would very much like to hear your thoughts.
Thank you

My thoughts:

Watch the rpm's when you do this. Then do it again, but put it in manual and shift it yourself. If you still think it's not shifting properly you can try disconnecting the battery for a while to reset the transmissions memory. That may or may not help.

It sound like a misfire...bad plug or ignition coil. Sometimes that won’t set a check engine light. I’d stop at autozone and ask them to scan the vehicle to see if a code shows up.

Generally shaking under acceleration or up a hill relates to an ignition issue. Let us know
