Thrift store find - new old stock(?) cannondale trail; what year/model?

I found this today at a local thrift store - they also had a like new/new Giant Sedona but I could only afford 1 ($249 each) so I took this one.
It appears to be brand new! (Even the tires look like they've never touched the ground) I know it's not a 2018 or 2019 because of the straight top bar - can anyone tell me what year it is?
It has 6061 T6 on the inside of part of the frame by the rear wheel - is this a Trail 6?

It also has a Acera rear derailleur & XCM forks - does that help tell what year it is?
I appreciate any help - I bought it to resell.

I would put it somewhere around 2011 or 12 Trail 5. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the trails always had color matched forks. That leads to the question of why this fork isn't white.

I looked but only found ones with 27" or 29" tires - this one has 26" x 2.5"?
Thanks for the help

2014 is my guess. The serial number should tell you, if it really matters. That's a clean and solid bike. What a deal!
