Default stiff ride standard ?

Hi forum members. Newbie here. I just purchased a 2014 Equinox 2LT AWD with 44K miles. Before buying it, I did a minimal drive on the city streets and felt it had a good feel to it. After purchasing, I took it for a ride in the country, where last winter had abuised the roads leaving some shallow pot holes and cracks. When driving through the area, the suspension felt stiff, very similar to my Ford F150 pickup. I had read lots of reviews on the internet about my model before I bought it, and never seen any posts that mentoned a stiff ride. Is this actually standard for these cars ? It also has quite stiff bucket seats (heated), . I'm comparing the ride with the ride I had from my Chevy HHR that I traded in, which was a much softer ride. Maybe because it has the AWD, that is why the suspension seems more firm ?
