Every Car only requires what they put in as original equipment. Most Commonly it its only 600-850 Cold Cranking. The battery you need depends more on size and shape than the Cold Cranking Amps. more

In cold climates like the midwest  have at least 2 CCA's per cubic inch of engine displacement (example 350 cu. in. engine wil need about 700 or more CCA to make it through the cold winters).  This would roughly equate to two CCA per 16 cc's of engine displacement (example 1.6 liter engine or 1600 cc's would require about minimum 200 CCA).
