Work vehicles are often (maybe usually) geared for steady state cruise. Can handle being fully loaded in terms of overall powertrain performance. But can slow up to speed.

Passenger vehicles are overpowered. Set up for acceleration.

While not strictly accurate, the above makes sense when one tries to use one vehicle in place of the other.
