Is it feasible to determine which version of a package is presently installed using pip?
I’m familiar with pip install XYZ —upgrade, but I’m curious if pip info XYZ exists. If not, what is the most accurate way to determine which version I am now using?

There is a pip display command in pip 1.3.
$ pip show Jinja2 --- Name: Jinja2 Version: 2.7.3 Location: /path/to/virtualenv/lib/python2.7/site-packages Requires: markupsafe
In previous versions, pip freeze and grep should suffice.
$ pip freeze | grep Jinja2 Jinja2==2.7.3

I recently submitted a pip pull request with the enhancement. Hugo Tavares expressed his thoughts as follows:
(specloud as example)
$ pip show specloud Package: specloud Version: 0.4.4 Requires: nose figleaf pinocchio

A list command has been added to Pip 1.3:
$ pip list argparse (1.2.1) pip (1.5.1) setuptools (2.1) wsgiref (0.1.2)

You can acquire the Current and Latest versions of the packages you’re using by adding —outdated as an extra argument:
$ pip list --outdated distribute (Current: 0.6.34 Latest: 0.7.3) django-bootstrap3 (Current: 1.1.0 Latest: 4.3.0) Django (Current: 1.5.4 Latest: 1.6.4) Jinja2 (Current: 2.6 Latest: 2.8)
So, combining AdamKG’s response:
$ pip list --outdated | grep Jinja2 Jinja2 (Current: 2.6 Latest: 2.8)
Also, take a look at pip-tools: https://github.com/nvie/pip-tools

You may also install yolk and then run yolk -l to get some interesting results. Here’s what I get for my small virtual environment:
