In this article, we propose and study a new three-parameter heavy-tailed distribution that unifes the Burr type XII and power inverted Topp-Leone distributions in an original manner. This unification is made through the use of a simple 'shift parameter'. Among its interesting functionalities, it exhibits possibly decreasing and unimodal probability density and hazard rate functions. We examine its quantile function, stochastic dominance, ordinary moments, weighted moments, incomplete moments, and stress-strength reliability cofficient. Then, the classical and Bayesian approaches are developed to estimate the model and stress strength reliability parameters. Bayes estimates are obtained under the squared error and entropy loss functions. Simulated data are considered to point out the performance of the derived estimates based on the mean squared error. In the final part, the potential of the new model is exemplified by the analysis of two engineering data sets, showing that it is preferable to other reputable and comparable models.
