How can I check the version of packages to be installed with apt-get?

After running apt-get upgrade, I get a list of the packages that will be upgraded. I would like to know the version number for one of these packages. (Not the current one but the one that will be installed).

"apt-cache show <packagename>

should include the full version numbers."
