Engine pings at 1800-1900RPM under light load in high gears

The title says it, when going up hills in low gears it holds the gear too long and the engine pings loudly, it's the diesel 2.2 ford duratorq engine version 2015. Essentially it strains to hold the gear for no reason instead of downshifting when it should. Has always done it since I bought it second hand a couple of years ago but seems to do it more now.

Only happens in higher gears, never happens around town doing <60kph but does it all the time doing 80kph+. Sport mode reduces the problem as it holds lower gears more, but has anyone else had/dealt with this problem?
