Okay. I think we should start by checking fuel pump pressure and making sure the catalytic converter isn't plugging. Also, let me know when the last tune up was done to the vehicle.

You may want to consider a tune up at this point. It is due. As far as the fuel pump pressure, here is a video to watch.

As far as the converter, you will need to remove an O2 sensor and check back pressure.

This sounds like a transmission issue to me. There is a software flash available for your transmission/engine (if not already done) for a hesitation. I would start by bringing it to the dealer and checking for any available software updates for the ECM or TCM.
