Complaint - Engine, Power Train

I WAS DRIVING MY 2011 FORD F-150 4X4 WITH THE 3.5 LITER ECOBOOST ENGINE ON HWY 12 IN BUXTON, N.C. AND I WENT TO PASS A DRIVER, ACCELERATING FROM APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH TO 55 MPH AND THE ENGINE BOGGED AND LOST ALL POWER. I CONTINUED TO HIT THE GAS FOR ABOUT ANOTHER SECOND AND THE WHEELS THEN LOCKED UP AND THE TRUCK HAD SEVERAL VIOLENT JERKING MOTIONS BEFORE COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP. THE ENGINE WOULD NOT TURN BACK ON FOR AN HOUR. I HAD IT TOWED TO THE FORD DEALERSHIP (UNDER WARRANTY) AND THEY RESET THE COMPUTER. THE TRUCK SEEMED TO RUN OK IN THE TIME SINCE THEN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE OCCASIONAL SHUDDERING DURING HARD ACCELERATION. NOW (DECEMBER 2013) THE TRUCK WILL NOT ACCELERATE AT HIGHER THAN 2,000 RPM WHEN IN 4TH, 5TH OR 6TH GEAR WITHOUT SHUDDERING AND CUTTING POWER TO THE ENGINE. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BEGINS TO FLASH DURING THIS AND THEN TURNS OFF. FORD IS NOT WILLING TO COVER THE REPAIR COSTS AND DESPITE SPEAKING TO SEVERAL CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES, NO ONE AT FORD HAS ACKNOWLEDGED THIS ISSUE HAPPENING WITH ANY OTHER VEHICLES.
