The ZIL-131 is a general purpose 3.5 tonne 6×6 army truck designed in the Soviet Union by ZIL. The basic model being a general cargo truck. Variants include a tractor-trailer truck, a dump truck, a fuel truck, and a 6×6 for towing a 4-wheeled powered trailer.

The ZIL-131 was introduced in 1966; it is a military version of the ZIL-130, and the two trucks share many components. The ZIL-131 6×6 has the same equipment as the GAZ-66 and Ural-375D. This truck featured high reliability and all-road abilities. The basic model was used mainly as personnel transport or 5-t cargo truck. Those trucks were supplied to Warsaw Pact countries and also to many countries of Asia and Africa. There were many ZiL-131 modifications for Soviet Army and civilian use.

The ZIL-130/131 was in production at the AMUR truck plant (ZIL-130 as the AMUR-531350 and ZIL-131 as the AMUR-531340), with both gasoline and diesel engines, from 1987 until 2012 when AMUR shut down and filed for bankruptcy.

The forces on both sides of the current conflict in Ukraine prefer the ZIL to the more modern Kamaz trucks because the long front bonnet and engine give more protection to the cab crew against mines.
