I once read the production notes for The Peacemaker, which indicated that most of the scenes with the truck were filmed in Macedonia (former Yugoslav republic of). The train scenes (and much else) were filmed in Slovakia.

Edited to add: Found the production notes:
Link to "www.filmscouts.com"
Quote Three-time Academy Award®-nominated production designer Leslie Dilley spent four months with his team in Slovakia and Macedonia scouting locations and creating realistic sets that further enhanced the film's gritty texture. Under Dilley's direction, two extensive sets were constructed from scratch in the middle of a massive, unfinished convention center situated across the Danube River from Bratislava. There, the designer and his crew built a full-size model of a Boeing 727 fuselage, as well as a two-story replica of the Pentagon War Room, complete with functional, state-of-the-art electronics.

Bratislava's ice hockey stadium was transformed into a 200-foot-long White House corridor, while a basement complex duplicated the actual command center for the White House's Nuclear Smuggling Group. The historic St. Martin's Cathedral, where the ruling Hungarian Deity crowned 17 Kings and Queens from 1563 to 1830, doubled as the New York City church that is the site of the climactic showdown between Devoe, Kelly, and their nuclear bomb-wielding adversary. During the five-day shoot at the cathedral, the production crew had to remove all equipment and vacate the church prior to each of three daily masses held inside.

Following filming in Bratislava, the cast and crew moved on to Ohrid, Macedonia, where locations replicated Russia's Ural Mountains. Widespread reports of hijacking and vehicle vandalism throughout Serbia-along with occasional search and seizures instigated by government officials-prompted the producers to organize a covert convoy to make a clandestine run through the Balkans. The convoy, which consisted of every production vehicle, from the make-up bus, to the camera truck, to the actors' trailers, spent three days snaking its way through Hungary and Serbia before finally crossing the Macedonian border.

In addition to the resort town of Ohrid, filming was accomplished in Macedonia's enormous Kumuh Mine. It was there that Leder recreated the mass exodus of refugees from war-ravaged Bosnia, using 300 Macedonian extras.

From Macedonia, the company returned to Slovakia, where the film's gripping train sequences were shot. Principal photography on "The Peacemaker" was completed on September 16, 1996.

That shall be it!
There are some more background cars that could be identified, but those are either too small, too blurred or just too common! :)
Whoever wishes to see another car listed, just ask.

In the meantime have a look here:
