Like its predecessor, the second-generation Windom launched in August 1996 was a Japanese version of the Lexus ES 300.

The body inherited the overall styling of the first-generation model, while the wheelbase became longer by 50 mm, and the tread and body width were also extended. In addition to the 3,000 cc, 210 PS V6 24-valve engine that powered the first-generation Windom, a newly designed 2,500 cc, 200 PS engine also became available. The transmission system was an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic. Airbags were standard-equipped for the front seats of all models, and shock-absorbing material covered the interior surface. To further assure safety in a collision, the body structure satisfying Toyota's Global Outstanding Assessment (GOA) standard was adopted. The projector type headlamps were replaced with multi-reflector halogen lamps, which were subsequently switched to high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps with the automatic beam angle adjustment feature in a minor model change of August 1999. Advanced technologies featured in higher grade models included the vehicle stability control (VSC) for adjusting braking and engine, the Skyhook TEMS, and a navigation system.
