The American car manufacturer unveiled the Kaizer Chiefs stalwart as it brand ambassador.
This deal comes just after few days since Ford signed a sponsorship deal with Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.
Ford seems to be working overtime to reposition itself in the South African market after following a string of bad publicity about the explosions of Ford Kuga SUVs last year.
Khumalo is seen in pictures posing next to Ford’s flagship car the Mustang GT before making a speech at a podium.
Pirates chairman Dr Irvin Khoza is said to have chosen the same car as part of the sponsorship.
