G to Autozone and buy a Duralast Gold or to Napa and buy their platinum battery for your car. You tell them the model and year and they'll give you the size you need. Both batteries are better than the Motocraft battery.

Most automotive stores have a cross reference guide, the best way is to just take your battery in (her in the states they charge us extra if we don't bring in the old battery).

You can measure the overall size for comparison, but the other specifics are 12 Volt, 590 cold cranking Amps (735 Cranking Amps), with 90 reserve minutes or more.
