Great Characters Wiki

Cruz Ramirez is the deuteragonist of Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3. She is Lightning McQueen’s trainer who has her own desires for racing her entire life.

Why She Rocks

  1. Her design is pretty good and colorful, like most Pixar characters.
  2. Cristela Alonzo does her voice very well.
  3. Like her hero, Lightning McQueen, she wants to be a racer, and eventually gets her chance thanks to him.
  4. She has a pretty emotional backstory, when she wanted to be a racer herself, but felt she didn’t belong in due to being outclassed by other racers who looked nothing like her.
  5. Despite her slight inferiority complex, he is optimistic, sunny, and friendly. She is also very kind and sweet.
  6. She had good character development, evolving from an unsure and insecure trainer to a more confident and talented racer.
  7. She is willing to help others overcome their fears and worries.
  8. Regardless of how predictable it was, her victory over Jackson Storm was still awesome and ended Lightning's racing days in a high note. Now, she spends her days in Radiator Springs training with McQueen, just like how he used to train with Doc Hudson.

Bad Qualities

  1. While it was just an accident, she exposed Lightning at Thunder Hollow and almost got him killed at the Crazy Eight speedway.
  2. She can be unsure of racing at times, despite the fact that she dreamed of doing it.
