Noisy Drain

I have a single drain, stainless steel kitchen sink,
21"(L) x 16"(W)x 6" (D). Our dishwasher is hooked up to the drain pipe above the trap. The drain gurgles very loudly when the sink is drained and/or when the dishwasher is running. We will be replacing the sink with a new double under mount stainless steel sink next month. Is there a way to make the new drains quiet? Thanks in advance, Steve.

I have no idea. I don't know much about plumbing.

Are you installing a garbage disposal on this new sink?

If you look at on the roof above the kitchen sink, do you see a pipe protruding though it?
