Whoever makes the Ford Motorcraft battery gets my vote.
In my purchased-new 1990 F-150, I finally replaced the battery in 1997. In December of 2001, I purchased an new '02 F-150, and that battery is still in the truck, starting it every day for the past almost-11 years. Of course, now that I've put this into print, it'll probably crap out when I go out later this morning to run some errands.
I've been using Car Quest batteries for long time.My wife works for them in upper management so we get her discount. They have proven to be a great battery. Of course CQ have their good ,better and best line. I buy the best they have same with their oil filters. I have never had to replace one under warranty.My old Ford has a CQ battery.That has to be close to 7 years old. It doesn't get used much and when I hit the key it cranks. It can sit for few weeks and it turns it right over.
When I had my Nissan Titan the factory battery lasted less than 4 years. Replaced it with a CQ. Took it out when I traded it in and put a cheaper battery in it.
I understand from several pros I know that there are only three battery manufacturers in the U.S., no matter what brand is on them. I just buy whatever's on sale, and get one notch below the best. Usually just a few months less, for a lot less green.
