So, I am looking into purchasing a F-350 SRW that has a build date in 04/2014.

So, if this considered a 2014 model or a 2015 model?

The used-car dealer is pitching it as a 2015.

10th digit in the VIN represents the model year. E=2014 F=2015.

That works for everything from 1981 and up. The VINs were standardized to 17 digits with the 10th being the model year digit and the 8th for the engine code. From 1981 to 2000 it uses alphabetic letters starting with B for 1981 and excludes I, O, Q, U & Z. I think most of are those excluded because they could be mistaken for other characters and Z just got left off because it was last. Starting in 2001 you use numbers 1-9 then in 2010 it goes back to letters with A for 2010.
