a common problem with the 3.9 v6 is timing chain tensioners wearing out early, sometimes causing a chain to jump a tooth and that would cause power loss.

An overheated transmission can cause this condition too. The computer senses a problem and can reduce power to keep from trashing the trans. Have the codes (DTCs) checked.
