My 2014 Ford Escape foot feet is too touchy and I always feel like the vehicle is jerking as I'm driving.
There could be a problem developing in the throttle sensor, I would get the vehicle "live data" scanned that way the tech can watch the sensor feed to the ECM. Does it do this when cold also? If it does it might be a problem with the injectors not clean enough, might try a can of SeaFoam in the fuel first.
