We consider a model of dark energy (DE) which contains three terms (one proportional to the squared Hubble parameter, one to the first derivative, and one to the second derivative with respect to the cosmic time of the Hubble parameter) in the light of the modified gravity model, with and being two constant parameters. and represent the curvature and torsion scalars, respectively. We found that the Hubble parameter exhibits a decaying behavior until redshifts (when it starts to increase) and the time derivative of the Hubble parameter goes from negative to positive values for different redshifts. The equation of state (EoS) parameter of DE and the effective EoS parameter exhibit a transition from to (showing a quintom-like behavior). We also found that the model considered can attain the late-time accelerated phase of the universe. Using the statefinder parameters and , we derived that the studied model can attain the phase of the universe and can interpolate between dust and phase of the universe. Finally, studying the squared speed of sound , we found that the considered model is classically stable in the earlier stage of the universe but classically unstable in the current stage.
