Should be 26" on both driver and passenger sides. At least that's what my '07 4.2 has been for the last 12 years, and I have replaced my wipers every year. I know for a fact that the OEM blades (4L1-998-002 which are about $40 for a set) are both 26" and keyed for driver and passenger side, so you can't use the driver side blade on the passenger side without modifying the blade. I get the Valeo Ultimate 26" blade from Amazon, which iirc is identical to the OEM, other than the fact they are not keyed to driver/passenger side, so they work on either side.

I have tried the Bosch Icon and they are great when they're brand new, but the rubber seems very soft and not very durable.

The Goodyear blades that Costco used to sell weren't very good, seemed like the mount to the wiper arm was very loose, and they would make a lot of noise, and the mount forces the wiper arm to sit an inch higher off the glass. I've noticed that my Costco has recently switched to a Michelin hybrid blade, so I might give those a shot, but I've been pretty happy with the Valeo.
