Kwadwo Asamoah's thumping effort for Juve with 10 minutes remaining cancelled out Kevin Mirallas' counter-attacking strike which had put Everton ahead on 61 minutes.
The game went straight to penalties after 90 minutes, with Leon Osman missing his spot-kick, before Andrea Pirlo did likewise for the Italian side.
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard then saved from Federico Peluso in sudden-death to give Roberto Martinez's side a 6-5 spot-kicks success.
Earlier, Martinez's team had a Steven Pienaar free-kick disallowed, while John Stones hit the goal-frame with a header just before half-time.
The Italian champions included Carlos Tevez following his summer signing from Manchester City, and he played 83 minutes for his new side.
Everton will face the winners of Thursday's match between Real Madrid or LA Galaxy in Los Angeles on Saturday.
