%X We propose a new class of continuous models called the Weibull Generalized G family with two extra positive shape parameters, which extends several well-known models. We obtain some of its mathematical properties including ordinary and incomplete moments, generating function, order statistics, probability weighted moments, entropies, residual, and reversed residual life functions. Characterizations based on a ratio of two truncated moments, in terms of hazard function and based on certain functions of the random variable are presented. We estimate the model parameters by the maximum likelihood method. We assess the performance of the maximum likelihood estimators in terms of biases and mean squared errors by means of two simulation studies. The usefulness of the proposed models is illustrated via three real data sets.
