|~ Cruz Ramirez to Lightning McQueen|
Cruz Ramirez is the deuteragonist of the 2017 Disney/Pixar film Cars 3.
She is a racing trainer, later racer, who helps Lightning McQueen get his racing mojo back so he can defeat Jackson Storm.
She is voiced by Cristela Alonzo.
Initially, she is recruited by Lightning McQueen to help him train for the upcoming Florida 500 and defeat a rookie named Jackson Storm. After a series of unsuccessful attempts to train McQueen at the Rust-eze Racing Center, the two participate in a series of events including unwittingly entering and winning in demolition derby and training at Thomasville with Doc Hudson's former mentor, Smokey. She races in the Florida 500 herself as McQueen's replacement sporting his number, which she eventually wins jointly with McQueen. After the race, she politely turns down Sterling's offer to join the race team, possibly in retaliation for underestimating her skills and joins Dinoco's racing team sporting Doc Hudson's old number (51), with McQueen serving as her crew chief.

- It is unknown if there will be a Cars 4, as Pixar could possibly try to get a good story with Cruz as the main protagonist, like Cars 2 which was about her mentor's best friend Mater, and Lightning was the protagonist of the first and third film.
- It's unknown who was considered the role of Cruz before Cristela Alonzo was casted
