Default Frequent Downshifting With V6?

I did a long search and couldn't really find what I was looking for. Anyways I got a new company car (V6 AWD Terrain) and I have already put 23,000 miles on it. The car downshifts way too much for a V6 in my opinion. I know in 6th gear it runs pretty low rpm on the highway but it seems to downshift on every little hill even going 75mph. Do your cars do the same thing? My old Dodge Nitro with 50 less hp never downshifted and went up hills fine so this seems weird to me. Maybe I'm too used to driving my SRT Cherokee but something seems wrong to me with how often this thing downshifts. Any advice?
