\[F = ma\] 1 car: mass is M; acceleration is 2.57 m/s^2. Net force acting on the car is 2.57M Newtons. If another car is connected, then the net force will be acting on both cars. 2 cars: total mass is 2M; net force is 2.57M Newtons. Acceleration is (2.57M)/(2M), or 1.285 m/s^2. Simply said, the new maximum acceleration will be one half of the initial maximum acceleration.
