It's unclear why Hameedi decided to head to JLR. Ford did announce that it will stop selling most of its car lines in North America in favor of crossovers, but it's unknown if that was a contributor to his departure. If he stayed at Ford, Hameedi would still likely be busy. He'd be in charge of developing Ford Performance cars for other markets and hotter SUVs like the Edge ST and recently announced Explorer ST.

This is also the second high-profile departure from Ford Performance in the last year. Dave Pericak, chief and creator of Ford Performance, moved to a new role in Ford's manufacturing division in October. Additionally, one of the biggest champions of Ford Performance, Raj Nair, was ousted from his role as Ford North America president earlier this year over unspecified "inappropriate behavior."
