so this really depends on HP ( horse power) if a car has more horse power than a truck than it will accelerate faster and also cause cars are lighter than trucks. so you have power and less weight than a truck. so to answer your question it depends on the car and the truck. how much HP either one has and how heavy they are,

Why is it easier to stop a lightly loaded truck than a heavier one that has equal speed?

According to Newton's second law, the acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force and inversely proportional to its mass, a = F/m. Therefore, a less massive truck would be easier to accelerate ("decelerate") to a stop than a more massive truck.

Why is it easier to get a small car moving than a dump truck and which one is easier to stop and why?

Well,the small car weighs less then the dump truck,correct? It's similar to, "Why is it easier to lift a feather then a 20 pound weight?". And,since the dump truck is bigger,it gains more speed from its weight,and once it gets going,it's hard to stop.
