Bike manufactured year

Any way to tell what year a specific model of mike was manufactured in? I own a Giant Sedona ST that I bought used a few years back, and am curious as to when it was manufactured.

Thanks in advance for any information.

More likely to spot difference in the annual styling changes of the components.
than the frame ..

Shimano parts also have a date code.
It's 2 letters such as JA
First is year
1976 A
1977 B
etc.
2002 repeats at A.

2nd letter is pretty obvious, since they only use A-L.
