If you stand at the front of the Equinox's hood that's open, look at the bottom-right corner area behind the headlight area, the battery is 'hidden' underneath the black box-like part that you need to remove clips or screws to lift it up to gain access to the battery cover to reveal the battery sitting onto the battery tray.
It's one of the common thing most people wonder where the battery is located.
The battery is secured into place by a large bolt/black rectangular shaped part onto the battery tray...just unbolt it and you're ready to pull it out.

Look at your title, get the VIN, call a dealer and ask for the service department. They can look up the VIN and tell you if it had it when it left the factory.

Need battery ford sport trac 2008 what size is best?

When you say physical size--they go by Group Size

Most vehicles only take one size

If you mean Cold Cranking Amps (CCA)
or other ratings--I would always get the largest

You may find 650 is the largest for your vehicle
The owners manual will tell you
Also whatever is in there now, should be an
original Motorcraft. So replace with same capacity, any brand
