Are all alternators the same?

Or to be more specific, would an alternator from a Hyundai Sonata fit/work in a Ford Laser?

Other than the mounting locations, mounting points, connector configuations, pully and belt configuations, and output amperage, they are almost identical, which is to say, no they are not interchangable.

The alternators are specific to particular car models. So the alternator from a Hyundai Sonata will not work in a Ford Laser.
