Default 1-2 Shift Bog/Hesitation

I have a 2013 1500 with the 4.7L Flex-Fuel engine and 6-speed tranny. There is a pronounced "bog" or hesitation when coming off the line when the tranny shift from first to second. Sometimes it's worse than others. Dealer clams they submitted a "Star" inquiry and were told it was a specific program to extend tranny/gear life. I find this a probable fob-off from the factory. Any similar experience with your drivetrain, and any fixes?
