Default Trans. & RPM

My 2010 Ram 1500 has me baffeled. If I take the speed up to 65mph and hold steady speed or set the cruise, the RPM is 1700. If I take the speed up to 70/75mph and drop back to 65mph and hold steady speed or set cruise the RPM is 1500. Can someone tell me why there is a difference in RPM?

Does it sound like it shifts when you go to 70/75 from 65? or is it definitely in the same gear?

Sounds like a shifting issue
Mine is ignorant sometimes..
I have to give it some gas in order for it to shift right and up into a higher gear
Also some shuttering sometimes at WOT from cruising with my Diablo
