FWIW the OEM battery in my Escape is model BXT-96R (part number visible when I remove the battery cover).
That number ("BXT") is for the "Tested Tough Max" series of Motorcraft batteries. When installed as a replacement they have a 36-month free replacement / 100-month pro rata warranty. When it comes in the new car only the 36-month free replacement applies (for whatever reason, just the way it is).
The OEM Motorcraft battery in my '05 F150 went waaaay beyond 36 months. I'm in very hot central Texas, not the friendliest battery climate.
As already stated, YMMV.

I love my hard-working '05 F-150 XLT 5.4 V8 trailer-towing truck, too !
