I reset the exposure to zero and took two more shots. What a difference. The first one is on completely auto, the second one is on program with WB set to direct sun. The latter one has much more contrast and the colors are vibrant, even over the auto setting. I'm usally taking photos in indirect lighting which is why I had previously set the exposure longer.
Using a Nikon D3400 DSLR outside on a sunny day. Interestingly, the auto setting produced the most realistic color. I expected that the direct sunlight balance would be better, but it is too washed out. Then I remembered that I had previously set the exposure to +2 for more light and did not reset it to zero!1 = auto; 2 = cloudy; 3 = direct sun; 4 = fluorescent; 5 = incandescent; 6 = shade
