Lastly, the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 tops things off by offering an extremely quiet cabin, thanks to its exterior aerodynamics, inlaid and triple-sealed doors, sound-absorbing materials, and engine exhaust valving, and in its 6.2L V8 engine-equipped trims it has the availability of Active Noise Cancellation.
