It's a cubic polynomial.

Or, you could say it is a quadrinomial.
Don't get that word confused with quadratic.
A quadratic has three terms (a trinomial).
However, the above doesn't state the degree of the polynomial.
Therefore, combining it with royhass's response, I would call it a
cubic quadrinomial!
