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,

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.
