Angry 2019 Ranger accelerator becomes non responsive

Hi there, has anyone else has had a similar issue with the new 2019 Ford Ranger Bi-Turbo where it totally loses engine power intermittently. The car doesn't stall but the accelerator peddle becomes totally non responsive for between 2 to 4 seconds and mainly when you need it most, either performing a u turn, crossing a busy road, accelerating out of a roundabout, pulling out quickly from a banked up lane and so on.

it rarely happen while travelling on straight road at high speeds & mainly happens from a still or slow rolling take off. I have had situations where I take off across a busy road & half way across the road the throttle becomes totally non responsive for 2 to 4 seconds & I'm stuck in the middle of on coming traffic. I have now had 3 near misses & can no longer trust this vehicle in any of the above situation & so i now wait till there isn't a car in sight before i attempt to cross a busy road or do a u turn.

I have taken it back to the dealer and nothing shows up on the computer as an error & when they took it for test drive it didn't happen.
