Why does it take longer for a truck to stop?

I know that a large truck has more momentum than a small car, because it is more massive. But theoretically wouldn't it be able to stop in the same distance if were going to same velocity as the small car? Since it has more mass, its tires would be able to exert a proportionally larger stopping force without... show more I know that a large truck has more momentum than a small car, because it is more massive.
